Jo and Scout are sisters but they have very different ideas sometimes of entertainment.Today was the first day of the Liv dolls being in McD's Happy Meals. After grocery shopping we got a drink and the girls got the new doll. Jo had apple juice and Scout had ice cream, of course. If you ask her what she wants for lunch she will say ice cream. She seriously rivals her Uncle Daisey in her love of ice cream. The girls were enjoying playing with their dolls when somehow Scout's dool got ice cream on her head. The giggles were unbelievable.

Scout then decided that her doll needed another lick of ice cream. More hysterical giggling.

Then there is Jo who wants her doll to remain ice creamless.
Notice Scout laughing in the background. A good time was had by all.

Cooling Off

Jo was here this week and wanted to go to the new water park we have just a few blocks from the house. Here are some pictures of kids having  fun.

My Creative Sister

Just this last year my sister JE found out I am not creative. Yes I knit, crochet and do all kinds of crafty things, but I am not one who comes up with most of the ideas. Sometimes I will modify a pattern or come up with an idea and make up a pattern but overall, no. I do not want the responsibility in a group of being in charge or coming up with ideas. Just tell me what you want me to do and I will do it with gusto and hopefully close to perfection. Last year JE wanted some ideas on how to get cool pix with all her hats. Thinking I was creative and crafty she asked me what to do. Duh, I don't know. She became really shocked that I had no ideas, not a one, nada. Here is what she came up with, pretty cool.

Some years she has knit over 365 hats. In the last 8 years she has knit over 2,000 hats for our hat project.

While she was here this last weekend she wanted to take pix of my hats that are finished so far. Of course I had no ideas, did not want to take them outside and could not think of anything that was "cool". So here is what she got. Yeah, great picture.

Point being I have knit 135 hats so far for the Knit-A-Cap project. Maybe it is ok for me not to be creative.

Happy Birthday Joseph!

Your nieces adore you.

Ground hogs fear you.

Aunt JE hugs the stuffing out of you.

You look for adventure.

Someone keeps you warm and makes you laugh.

At 10lb 12oz your doctor wanted to sign you up with the Dallas Cowboys.

And your Mom will love you forever.
