aww, that's sweet, kads. grandparents have a way with kids. i just started realizing the immensity of their power. all we have to do is threaten to call grandpa, and my boy is scared straight. it's far better than a spanking.

god bless you and your love for your wee ones.

and happy birthday to mr. ma.

At any rate, I love unusual garden decor and have added a couple of fun things to our outside living space. One thing I have always wanted is a nice, deep-sounding set of wind chimes.

I did some Internet surfing a few weeks ago and found what I thought would be a set of chimes I'd like. There was even a brief audio clip of how they would sound, which was quite helpful in my decision-making process. I liked what I heard and I ordered them.

The chimes arrived this morning and I couldn't be happier. The music is even more beautiful than the sound bite. Since blue is my favorite color, I ordered them in blue and the color, too, is even prettier than it appeared on my computer screen.

We put this in our herb garden, which is just off our bedroom. It's gorgeous at night and now I want to plant a moon garden to go with it.

I've been enjoying our wonderful yard and all the beautiful sights and sounds it affords us. Oh, I almost forgot, our hummingbirds are back, too. I'm practically giddy.

All these things have me smiling like crazy and will keep me smiling.
Beautiful Katie! Love the chimes. I had some 5 foot steel tubular chimes, they disappeared out of a fenced yard.

Adorable. With the way her teeth are growing in, it makes her look like a cute little vampire.
