Can you believe this is her first Coke? (Not including sips of Diet Coke from my cup!) Anna gave up soda for lent which made our visit to The World of Coke with the cousins an even harsher exercise in self-restraint. I guess it made the Real Thing even sweeter!
Linking up to Chic Critique's Glimpses 52 project!

It always make me feel good when I can be a mom that says, "Yes!"
When Ella came in with an arm full of pinecones, wanting to make birdfeeders, I turned off my normal weekday feeling of rush and said, "Sure, honey. You can make birdfeeders." I was surprised how independent my baby was, getting a chair to reach the peanut butter, making sure she returned it to its place on the shelf when she was finished.
She tied them carefully in various places around the yard. Her mind is always working and I never cease to be impressed by her thoughtfulness. Imagination is her gift.

She's been planning this birthday lunch for approximately 364 days. At "Which 'Wich" you write your name on a bag and mark off your sandwich and toppings. When it's finished, they call your name, and of course hers was "Birthday Girl". Birthday Mom, The Princess Dad, Birthday Girl's Big Bro, Birthday Girl's Big Sis and Little Sis all ordered sandwiches, too. It was a plan in the making.
I'm participating in the Glimpses 52 Project at Chic Critique. Check it out!

Here's the pickle story. Samuel loves pickles, so Perry thought it would be REALLY funny to give Samuel a giant jar of pickles for Christmas. Perry bought the pickles and hid them really well so that Samuel wouldn't find them. When Christmas came around, there were no pickles to be found. We looked high and we looked low. Still no pickles! (I was just thankful that I was not the one in charge of the pickles.) Finally, today, when I was helping Perry organize his office, I came across a brown box that was taped shut. It was filled with padding and brown craft paper, and...... PICKLES! HA-HA! I guess he really did hide them well! Finally, one happy boy!
