Today's Smile

Little Abigail, who will turn 3 on the 25th, came up to me, wrapped her arms around my waist and looking up at me with her beautiful blue eyes said, "Meemaw? You're the best Meemaw I've ever had!" and I replied, "Abigail? You're the best Abigail I've ever had!" to which she signed "Awwwwww" and climbed up on her tippy toes for a kiss. Little moments like this really make my day and rock my world!
Thanks for stopping in! Hope you're having a world rockin' day too!
Hugs, Leena

Hey Girl!

Hey y'all! So sorry that I haven't been around to post lately. I have no idea where the days have gone and can't believe we're half into February! It's not like I've been anywhere or done much of anything. Truth be told, there hasn't been much blog-worthy stuff going on around here lately. OMG! Am I getting too boring even for me? I'd better jazz things up a bit then!

Have you seen the "Valentine Hey Girl Link Party" that's been going on this month? If not, you're in for a real treat! The blog party is being hosted by several awesome blogs: Bliss Ranch, Domestic Imperfection, Two Twenty One, The View Along The Way and Decor and the Dog, where you can find all the details. To see all the entries, go to Bliss Ranch. This was set up as a Valentine's Day Tribute to the men in our lives - those great guys who put up with all our crafting and selling and thrifting and glitter all over the floor and fabric stashes and constant doing then re-doing of rooms and, well, you get the picture. Speaking of pictures, I made these to contribute (a little late for Valentine's Day but I meant well). You know how much I love messing around, er, enhancing photos!
My darling husband, Jim!

My sweetie grandson, Jamison

I added this llama just because I thought he was cute!
I have looked at so many of the contributions and have laughed at the captions, the poses, the hair styles! They're all cute, funny, romantic, silly and just plain fantastic! Love this idea!

Thanks for stopping by and I promise to post more often!! Hugs, Leena

Adventures In Gingerbread! (a little silliness)

The warm sunshine glistening off the snow-covered landscape beckoned to the Gingerbread family. They had been cooped up inside for far too long! Momma, Pop, Brother and Sis decided to break free and bask in the fresh air! They left their little house in the woods........

and admired their neighbor's homes which were blanketed in pristine snow.......

as were the beautiful trees of the forest they lived in.
After a while, they came upon some rather odd characters, who seemed just as surprised to see the Gingerbread family as they were them!
Looking for a place to rest, they shared a bench with a very nice gentleman.
He informed them that if they were looking for some real fun, they should attend the Men In Snow concert! What fun! The music was chillin' the crowd surfing was thrillin' and they all had a way cool time!
Even with all the fun of the concert, the family longed to be somewhere warm; some place pretty and tropical and relaxing. What luck! They won the concert lottery for a cruise for four to Jamaica! The Gingerbreads immediately headed over to the marina where the cruise ship was docked.
Once on board, they  felt rejuvenated, watching the water stream by as they enjoyed lounging on the ship's deck.
Upon docking in Jamaica, they were amazed at the beauty of the beach and water! They took water skiing lessons from a local professional......
and enjoyed frolicking on the sandy beach, playing in the waves.
Back on board, the kids loved the swimming pool.......
while Momma and Pop had some private time in the hot tub......
and sipped tropical drinks with little umbrellas in them!

I think they got a little snockered as they were seen jumping the waves and Momma was sporting a new bikini and showing off her tummy!

Unfortunately, vacation time was over all too soon. The Gingerbread Family returned home, to the snow and their sweet little house. They didn't mind so much however, as there really is no place like home!

Note: No gingerbread cookies were harmed in the making of this blog post. OK, maybe a few were eaten, but whenever necessary, stunt doubles were deployed. Until they were eaten too. Ummmm, yeah.

Thanks for stopping by today for this little piece of silliness! Take care, Leena
