Once Upon A Time...

...there was a little red wagon and a small, red-headed boy. They played together for hours. The boy rode in the wagon, he pushed it, he pulled it around the house, he gave his stuffed animals rides. The wagon was very happy, way back then. That little boy grew up and the wagon was forgotten, it sat in the dark; waiting, patiently, for another little boy to discover the joy contained within. The long and lonely wait was worth it. The wagon is, at long last, happy once again; so is this little boy... take a good look at that face!

Life is Good!

Mason is just sooooo cute!! I get a kick out of our grandsons wearing the same little stretchy suits! I can't wait to hug my Little Man on Sunday. :-)

Ah what a cutie pie - grandkids are so much fun. I am recycling the little people toys now that were my children's toys and the kids love them

Your tablecloth, soon to be quilt, is wonderful. How fun to refind a treasure like that. Sometimes I think when we are young, sitting still and doing much handwork is just too hard to do. My daughter is an excellent quilter as long as she can do it on her machine fast. She says no no no hand work for her.

I think your haircut looks great!

And everyone croweded around to watch the happy little boy knowing deep down his wagon is hitched to a star. They could see it on his face and feel it in their hearts.
