Happy "16th" Birthday Jessica

I cannot believe that this little girl is 16 years old today!

We were babysitting one sunny afternoon when you were almost ready to start walking. What did we do? We taught you how to walk with your hands on your head! For the next two weeks that was the only way you would walk!  Needless to say it did not go over well with your father!
You grew up believing in everything.  

You collected coffee beans...the ones that fell on the floor in the market & planted them in the back yard believing you could grow flowers!  We planted flowers one night so you would find them in the morning!  

You believed in Santa & the Tooth Fairy & the notes that both of them wrote to you helped keep that belief.

You loved to sing the car but only if no one was watching!  You belted out a very "mean" version of Shania Twain's "Man I feel like a Woman"! when you were only 6 years old!  That was the year I drove you to catch the bus to Girl Scout camp every day for 4 weeks.

You were also determined to pass the swimming test for camp & took it every week for for two years until you finally passed.

This was taken when you were 3 & were so thrilled to get a puppy for Christmas & no you're not strangling him!

Happy 16th birthday sweetheart & remember the gas pedal is on the right!!!

Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"

Love Val

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty

 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!

   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again

 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter

 This sums up the whole walk!
