Flat Stanley and the crazy days

Stan meeting Nora and Pipes...


Gettin' some lovin' from Beck and I...


Hangin' @ Molly's "crib"...


Can you imagine these two entertaining Stan for a week?


Stan's visit to the mall...


My nephew, Duncan, is doing a project with his first grade class in California. He sent this nearly life-sized (to a 5-year old) little guy to my parents. We are supposed to take him places, do things with him and document it all in photos...Mom passed the buck to me, knowing my somewhat obsessive nature and insane creativity (chuckle, laff). I got some pix of Stan with us at the mall, with my parents, in all of Molly's seats and such, etc. Now, we write a letter detailing Stanley's visit with us and what his manners were like and how he behaved.


We send Stan back to Cali, where Dunc's teacher will put up our pictures and post cards we sent...and they will report back to us how that went! ( I think )


But for now, we are out the door....2-3 crazy, crazy days ahead! visit with friends, Good Friday service, Boys' activity with the youth group tonight, spending the night with my maw and paw since I have to be back at the church at 7:45 a.m. (who gets up that early. ever???) to pick them up and they live less than 10 min. from said church, Mel's birthday visit with her friend, Maddie, cleaning for Easter here Sunday, Patria, etc etc...ahhhhh. I need a break! whew! I am choosing joy and feel privileged to be able to do all of these things, (warning: a little shout out: hear that David?? putting a smile on my old face and thank you for working so hard for us so we are able to do these things. And thanks also, while I'm at it, to the Lord, who provides for us in so many ways and for the blessings He gives)...Peace out and Happy Good Friday!

Hey, I just left you a big long message and it didn't go/take/whatever it is it needed to do....

You are a great auntie adopting Flat Stanley for a few days! What a great time for him!

Could you please let Patria people know that we are playing with dolphins and gators and won't be at Patria?

Thanks! Miss you! Hugs to all!

Ha Ha Flat Stanley how funny. I bet you are having fun with that! If we were there he'd be wearing some crazy disguise like disco gear and you would have to document that he was behaving badly! Twi

we had a flat stanley visit our home. He came from Michigan - do you remember Domonique? Stanley came from her son. It was fun.

I haven't left a comment in a long time! Bad cousin!! But I check you everyday!!

I just had to let you know everytime I see Piper I immediately think of my Miss Maddie! Even in pictures she gives off a energetic vibe that I think would flow with Maddie perfectly!! Those two could cause some serious mayhem I just know it!! I just don't know if the world would ever be ready for it :)

Just wanted to come back and let you know I'm thinking about you and you family this Easter Sunday. It's 4:30am and I've been up since 1:00am. Too much excitement I guess.

Anyway, take care, big hug, and I hope this Easter is a joyous one for you all....
