2 peas in a pod

Eily and Bella

I had a fun day on monday babysitting my sweet little granddaughter (left) and her friend Bella.  They played in the garden with the flowers.  Lulu pulled all the petals off a flower and had a great time. It was so cute.

I snapped this photo just as Bella was staring right at the camera.  They are four months apart.  Bella is four months older.  And they are so much fun!

Its so fun to see how their personalities are similar in some ways, and so different in other ways.  Lulu loves food. Bella has to be begged to eat anything.  They both love books and are starting to make up cute words that only they know.  They both don’t know what to do with each other. So, they hit each other and laugh.

Just adorable.

Dad’s haircut–before and after

I cut my dad’s hair today. I think he was leery of letting me do it.  But, the alternative was for him to PAY someone to do it. He wasn’t ABOUT to do that.

I didn’t do too bad.  What do you think?

Before:

31-40

31. I’m thankful it’s summer when the dog threw up in his crate twice.  That way I could just drag it out to the hose and hose it off.  That doesn’t happen real easily in the winter time.

32. I’m thankful I have the Dr.’s email address so I can email him in the middle of the night when my brother in law is throwing up and ask what his thoughts are this time.

33. I’m thankful all the throwing up is in one night so I can maybe sleep tomorrow.

34. I’m thankful for disinfectant spray that just makes lots of things smell so much better.

35. I’m thankful I don’t have a 9-5 job, or a boss.  I would get fired for all the family emergencies lately.

36. I’m thankful my cleaning lady and her family was able to find a home to buy. Even if it is in another state, far far away from my dirty stinky house.

37. I’m thankful for the Febreze home collection wooden wick candle cherry blossom whimsy scent I got on sale and is burning now.

38. I’m thankful for one pre-teen and one teenage daughter that are sleeping nicely right now and can wake up to be rested and helpful tomorrow (well, today).

39. I’m thankful for clean floors that got mopped in the middle of the night.

40. I’m thankful for coffee, strong and aromatic.
