Has it really been over 6 months since my last post...I'm such a bad blogger! This year has just flown by. I've been all over the place since March...seriously...I've been to Portland, OR, St. Louis, MO, Mesa, AZ, Manchester, NH and Buffalo, NY. That doesn't even count all the trips back and forth to my folks and my in-laws to drop Natalee off before a trip or pick her up after I get back. It's been a CRAZY year so far. Only a few more trips to go and I get to be a home body for the rest of the year!
Funny story - I unpacked my briefcase (an old messenger bag) and washed it today. It was filthy from all of my travels and needed a little TLC. I had a pack of airplane peanuts in one of the pockets so I just tossed them on the kitchen table and didn't give them a second thought. Natalee found them later and asked if she could have them. She was getting ready to go and run some errands with her Daddy, so he told her that she could have them in the car. He called me later to tell me that she asked him for her Airplane Seeds after their first stop. I said, "Her What?" He laughed and said that it took him a few minutes to figure it out too...she wanted her airplane peanuts...or in her mind...her Airplane Seeds.
I'll leave you with a few pictures. My good friend Kelly Noel was driving back from a family vacation and stopped by Studio Calico for a quick visit. She was nice enough to agree to take some pictures of Natalee and Claire while the boys went out on a farm tour with Greg. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these pictures and I wanted to share them with you. Keep in mind that is was about 95 degrees and HUMID while she was snapping away. Natalee's hair is usually straight as a stick, but she was having some hair challenges in the heat and humidity. I'm just happy that Kelly finally coaxed some genuine smiles out of her. I'll let you be the judge....
I have some other stuff to share....I promise that it won't be 6 months before my next post!
