Grandma Denny and Aunt Jess came for a visit! With them, they brought the long awaited Caleb Quilt. My Mom made a duckie quilt for Emma when she was born. True to all things "first" she zipped through it...and Emma had it soon after she was born. Caleb...has had to wait.
Now, no being hard on my Mom. She created an amazing airplane quilt...bi-planes on the sky with ribbon propellers and a little plane with a banner....OH, and did I mention...these quilts are HANDQUILTED!
Around each cloud on that border...wowsers! It's a work of art...and love! And...
....He ADORES it...he couldn't be more tickled!
His sister's been teasing him for years with hers...and now he has his quilt!
It was worth the wait!
BUT, note to self: when I have grandchildren I will be machine quilting their quilts! Just sayin'...hahaha!

We celebrated Caleb's FIFTH birthday at Grandma and Grandpa Well's house this past weekend!
They took us putt putt golfing! It was LOTS of fun!!
For the first time EVER (and probably the last time)...MomE beat DadE...by 5 strokes!
Of course...all putt putt golf places are cute...but Emma just loved this one!!
Later, they snuggled Grandma and watched "Tangled"....
I have to say...this orange chair gets a lot of lovin'!
Here's his ROBOT cake!
He's SO CUTE! Oooo....happy birthday to my boy!
Our aging family...hahaha!
Here's they are in their new shirts...I LOVE the colors!!!

I've been trying to get back into the habit and routine of memorizing Scripture. I started the year with a BANG...slamming out the first chapter of Colossians...but then I got behind and discouraged.
SO...I was writing out my verse...and of course, anything to do with paper, my girl is there! She needs to be practicing her writing this summer anyhew...so, she got her SS verse...and...
Ironically it was, "Be ye doers of the Word and not hearers only." James 1:22.
I need to be living it out...each.and.every.day! There are little eyes upon me.

I'll fully admit that Spontaneous is not often used to describe me...but when a dear friend from our Cinci days called to say she was passing through Indy...we threw together a lunch-play-chat date while having a great time ...and without any premeditation or uninhibited manner.
Real hugs are always best! )))HUG(((

In our search for fun on yet another scorcher of a day, we made body paints. VERY easy...I played with a few ideas I'd read online...all were too soupy...shaving cream just breaks down too fast...SO, I tried cold cream (Noxzema?) VOILA!
Color test...don't worry, no staining that bath time or kiddie pool won't remedy!
Paint on generously! Be careful with paint around the eyes...I warned the kids that it would sting worse than soup...they took note and were careful!
Happily coated Sweet Boobahs!
