Meet little cousin. While at a family gathering I caught her licking the screen on the porch. Heehee, she's a mess! For the srappin survival quote challenge I quoted her Mom when she said: "Anyone who thinks girls are sweet and innocent has never met my Kara" She is such a doll!

Why do birds suddenly appear...

My Jeremy loves to sing..he sings in the shower, in the potty, while getting dressed, in the car, while trying to go to sleep...All the time! So I bought him a little bear for Valentine's Day that sings "Close to You"....he memorized it in no time and now it's his new favorite song.
