Beautiful pics Cheryl! I only hope he can remember it if it never snows for him again.

I was just relating to someone a sweet moment that occurred when I babysat for my baby niece - a long time ago now. I was feeling a bit upset over something; she could see this, looked down at her doll and offered it to me!

Thank you, CG, GG, and Princess! Tyler is so much fun.

Princess, it's only about an hour's drive up the mountain to where there's snow in the winter - hopefully we'll get up there often this winter. Even better, hopefully we'll actually get some snow here in the valley this year!

Last thing that made you smile?

The lady who weighed our bags at the airport this morning. At 5 AM. There was a basket of brand new decks of playing cards at the Delta check-in desk. I took two packs and said the kids would like them. She asked how many kids we had, and I told her that we like to bring gifts for some of the poor kids in Mexico. She proceeded to funnel playing cards into each bag until the weight was 50 pounds each! We ended up with 17 decks of cards!

Having my friend's two sons (12 and 10) come out to play in my kitchen with me. I taught them how to apply baker's percentage and make some Swedish baked goods. It was so much fun. They were awesome. Their parents have done a great job with those two. They are just lovely boys (I have known them since they were born, so I am a bit biased...).

Biased can be a good thing. It shows that these two boys get extra love from a very special friend.
