Parties Galore and Cousins a Go-Go!!

We are having a wonderful time visiting with my family! Lia has spent fun filled days with her beloved cousins and we are enjoying just relaxing. Lia and I both visited the dentist this morning and passed with flying colors (this was Lia's second visit...she is a pro!). Lia REALLY thought it was funny to see where her Nana works (she's a dental hygienist) as our last visit took place when Nana had a vacation day.

Some funny things Lia has said this week:

She has requested a PINK mow-lawner...you know...that thing you cut the grass with!!

If you would like to know what is happening in the world, you can catch up by reading the paper-news!

When the receptionist rewarded her with a 3-D sticker at the dentist this morning, Lia exclaimed, "What in thunderation???" (and just for the record...she picked up this little honey of a phrase by reading Amelia Bedelia...that crazy Mr. Rogers utters this when Amelia accidentally "checks" his shirts with red paint...what madcap fun! Even though I knew where it came from, I had never heard her use this phrase before! )

These are a few pictures we took at Aunt Carolyn's house. Her flowers were so pretty, we couldn't resist. We sincerely wish Aunt Carolyn and her very green thumbs lived a little closer for emergency gardening calls!


Feeling Lamb's Ear for the first time...so soft!

Lia is just so pretty and so photogenic. Love the flower beds. Looks like she was having a great time.
I love all of the sayings. I should write Mal's sayings down. She says the funniest stuff.
Have a great weekend.

Oh how fun to be vacationing with family - yippee for you - I bet you are loving life!

Lia is gorgeous, just gorgeous. Just when I think she can't get any prettier, she up and does it again:)

You'll be glad you captured her Lia-isms - we still laugh over many em-isms.

Have a great weekend.
Love,
Heather

What fantastic pictures of Lia and the garden! She's a gem and I love all her cute little sayings. Please let me know if you find a pink mow lawn. Just last night Lindy wanted to clean her face wit a wipe wet.

Miss you!
