Thomas thought it would be fun to ride in the wagon today with Abby. At first, I really wasn't sure how she would like it but as soon as Thomas was in she was game for it. I put her seatbelt on and we were off around the neighborhood. She was so intent on listening to the birds, looking at everything Thomas pointed out to her, and thinking she was big stuff! I have a feeling this might become a regular ride each afternoon...

Video Clip - So is there such a thing? Toddler patience that is? Thomas doesn't do too bad today as he tries to show Abby how the choo-choo train goes. She could care less because she really does have her own agenda. But they both get a good laugh (me included) when Thomas basically says screw it!

(I had them as freshman and will all of them again next year as Seniors)
Of course I already knew about the blue star flags, but I think I would really like to get one. If you aren't familar with the history of these flags, read here.
... until recently. Not only do I have a very talented and skilled carpenter for a husband who can build and pretty much do anything I can dream up - I also have gifted FIL and MIL who never cease to amaze me with what they can do as well. All credit has to be given to the two of them for taking this project and running with it. Had it not been for them, my dining room would still be the "storage" and "packing" area in the house. Between the two of them, they sanded, stained, bought the necessary tools and items needed to reupholster the chairs (BTW, the chairs required a 7-layer method because of the style and age). As a final touch, Mary helped me pick out fabric for the chairs and some curtains she would end up making for both the dining room and adjacent living room windows. The final products are amazing. I can't believe how good everything turned out. Now I just need some last little accessories for the rooms. They certainly have the magic touch! Take a peek...
