In Honor of…..

….EARTH DAY

My shadow also known as my grandson Arai, was helping me pull weeds in the flower bed today.  He wants to do what mom-mom is doing but his attention span needs to be a bit longer.  I did more calling him back to help me finish me then he actually worked.  He is a work in progress….

Rainbow Colors

Let’s Just Blow Bubbles

SOMETIMES . . .
Let’s just blow bubbles,
For no good reason
Let’s just blow bubbles,
Laugh a little, watch them disappear
Not even wonder where.
Smile and touch the rainbow colors
Watch them float in the air.
No reason why–
No goals, no structure.

SOMETIMES . . .
Let’s just
blow bubbles.

Ice Breaker

Happiness is not ready-made, it comes from your own actions.

– Dalai Lama

I met this little boy today his name is Malik.  He was a little shy with me at first so I decided to break the ice with my new bubble machine.  What kid or adult  does not like bubbles?  Needless to say it worked, he was no longer shy with me and had a blast chasing down the bubbles.

Security

Lately my grandson has been watching his shows on my iPad under the security of his blankets, covers or whatever he can find to be alone.

Down Memory Lane

Since I was about 14 years old I started saving all birthday cards, Christmas cards, postcard, poems and letters that I have received from family and friends.

Today I was going through one of the boxes and came across some postcards that my uncle sent to me back in 1981 when he was traveling the world with the US Air Force.

But the most heart warning thing I found were 2 cards that my kids gave me. One was for my birthday and the other one was just because.

This card was for my 34th birthday and it says that I am over the hill!  Since I am now 51 what does that make me? 😆😆

And this card was just because.

A Photographer in the Making

This little angel here had a bad day at school today.  He did not get his way so he made sure no one else did either.  After dealing with his mother and a few moments in time out.  He asked if he can take some pictures.  I started to say no because of the behavior today but decided to see what he can do.

The first image is one I took while showing him how to keep one eye open so he can look in the viewfinder.   The rest are all his.

Do we have a budding photographer here?

Keeping one eye open

 

He gave me instructions on how to pose.  He told me to do some of the same things that I say to him.

 

We thank youu for visiting!

A day in the snow

Yesterday it snowed most of the day here in New Jersey. The kids wanted to go out and play in the snow so of course I let them and it was a perfect opportunity to take some pictures and practice aperture settings.  Although photos did not turn out in the quality that I wanted they were “ok”.  I still need more work.

Let Go My Lego!

Today I treated Arai to a set of Legos.  He has been having some rough days in daycare where he does not want to listen.  He prefers to do his own thing when he wants to do it regardless of what the teachers say.  So I tried to give him a little bribe so off to Walmart I went to find something special.  I know that he loves to build things so I got him a Legos a set.  This set has 583 pieces.

It kept him and Caila busy for 4 hours working to assemble the pieces.  I should have bought this a long time ago!  Another set is on his Christmas list.

Here are a few things that they built.

Arai with his castle that he designed all by himself! Such the proud young man.

 

This set included pieces to make these special projects.

Caila enjoyed herself as much as Arai did, she even said that she wanted a set for herself.

 

As always thanks for visiting!

 

It’s Beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Saturday I went to Shady Brook Farms Holiday Light Show with my daughter Erica, niece Caila, and nephews Carlito and Cameron.  This was my first visit and the kids loved it especially Cameron.  He was so excited to see the Dora and Boots, Sponge Bob and Patrick, and other characters.

Most of the pictures of the actual “christmas” lights came out really blurry .

So if you are in the Pennsylvania, New Jersey and even Delaware, I recommend that you go. You drive in your car at a leisurely pace to view all the lights and when that is done you can park your car and go to the shop and visit Santa Claus or take a hayride.

Boys and Their Toys

Today Robert and his friend came down to ride their 4×4’s in the trails by my house.  It just so happened that Arai was home and was finally able to get that long-awaited ride.
