Disndat

Being Home: we've been home from the cottage for a week now, and I notice that I've only posted once. What's up with that? Getting away is good, but life is all about living well where you are most of the time. So, there was joy in our return.



Birthday Boy: although the actual day is still a week away, guess who will be having his first birthday party this weekend? No silly, it's the little guy on the left.



Growing: Nikki Dee has been able to say all her letters for a long time now and to direct them to the right spot on the board. Fitting them in used to be a problem. Not so now — easy peasy. I try hold letters upside down to fool her but she calls them correctly regardless and puts them directly in their places.



Blogging: in the past I have sometimes mentioned Doris, particularly with regard to her photos. Well, she recently began her own blog. She's a working girl, so I don't expect her to be an everyday blogger, but she now has more than a half dozen postings to her credit, so I invite you to drop in to Thoughts and things and say hello. Doris and I were friends as kids and haven't seen each other in more than forty years but we're still friends. Her two most recent posts are about honesty and it's costs (sort of). To entice you, here's one of her photos.

He's coming on to a year already? Wow, hasn't time flown...

Love the look with the glasses, it somehow makes you look so different and even a bit younger (than the 50 you are of course).

Oh how fast they do grown. Nikki Dee is smarter than the average bear and the little man will be too. I did visit your friend Doris and her photos are good, good and look great framed. Blessings

Aw! I so needed to come over here and see those smiling faces! Made my day.
I will definitely go and see Doris. She shares her name with my most favourite person in the world, my mum. :o)

Great to see those pictures. The little ones grow so fast!
Thanks so much for sending friends over to my blog. You and Cuppa sure make me feel welcome in the "blogdom".

AC,

I can't believe that the little guy is almost a year old. Time flies. And ND already knows her alphabet. That's great for her age.

I certainly enjoyed the beautiful photos in the previous post. I remember last year when you posted. I absolutely love the photos. Thanks for sharing these beautiful scenes from your getaway.

Blessings,
Mary

There is nothing like going away on a vacation.

There is nothing like coming home after being away on vacation.

Both are bliss.

Disndat ... I like it and it probably will be in one of the new dictionaries...along with Blog, etc. A sweet family photo, AC.
