Oklahoma Girls

If I didn’t know any better, I’d say they had been to Oklahoma before. They took to grandma’s house like old pros.

Their favorite, by far (even more so than the dogs), Grandma’s cottage. It has a loft full of toys. They decided it was their school, their house, and anything else they could imagine. Telling each other when to come home and where to park the scooter (yes, they found spots and scooters).

Discovering a "little" house.

It was so much fun watching them.

The play loft in Grandma's cottage.

I love the tiny couch up in the loft. It reminded me of Alice in Wonderland.

It’s funny. Now that I am uploading and looking at these pics. I am noticing some of the loft toys were in the yard and I made them put them back inside. How did they get them down? Oh boy. Sorry Mom!

Molly in the yard with Sweetie. She lives up to her name; a very sweet dog.

Bridget loved holding Mom’s little Chihuahua named, “Tiny”. Last time I saw her she was a puppy, and well, she hasn’t grown much.

We were not disappointed by the country either. Mom’s next door neighbor’s donkey had a baby. Say it with me, “Awhhh!”

They were scared of me and wouldn’t get too close. I used my zoom lens to try and capture them. I just LOVE animal babies!

We had no issues there and back with the kids (thank-you iPhones!). Molly learned to text message (really, really well). You can thank her step-sister Sydney. Sydney was my Day 8 of the 365 project photo. You can check my Flickr account for the photograph.

Sorry this is short, but it’s five minutes until midnight after a long day and this is my promised post of the day.

Goodnight all!

What I learned today

Making an image icon is not so hard not impossible!

Thanks to SITS girls helpful Saturday sharefest post. I decided to try my hand at my very own button to represent my new group on the Mom Bloggers Club. It’s about connecting life bloggers with other life bloggers. Now I am not saying a giveaway here or there, a review here or there excludes someone, just that the blog itself should have life content that gives insight to the family or blogger. I was finding it difficult to connect to other bloggers on the Mom Bloggers Club that had the same kind of blog as me. So…I started a group.

I made an image and voila!

Clicking on the photo will take you to the group page.

My goal is not to have a super successful popular group. It is only to invite others like me to have a place to go if they want. I don’t blog to get sponsors or make a brand. I just blog for JOY. I read blogs for JOY. I just enJOY it. If you do too, then come join us.

Today is gorgeous outside! I am planning on getting some sunshine. I need a little warmth in my soul. I can’t wait until tomorrow. There is a BIG Easter egg hunt that Grandma Sue is hosting for all the kids after Church. I plan on taking lots of pictures, eating LOTS of chocolate, and just reaping the benefits of children on Easter Sunday. Abundantly joyful with angel lights shining from their precious eyes.

I will remember why Jesus came. He came to destroy hostilities between races, to rescue us, to give us faith, and to show us the worst evil is meant by God for good. Freedom, mercy and love for all. ♥♥♥♥

I will rest my burdens at the foot of the cross. I will bow my head grace filled. My heart softened by his strength. I have hope in my future because of his past. I am forgiven. I am free. I am imperfectly me.

May you be blessed this Easter and always.
