I didn't know you could do this~!

Yesterday in the mail I got an invitation from my son, Rich who is going to be marrying a wonderful girl named Lisa.. Look at that stamp~! I thought this was so cool~! This is the first time I have ever seen something like this.. Guess I'm behind the times.
I try my best to keep up~ but it just seems that new technology just zooms right on past me.. which is O.K.
They are getting married Feb. 26 and I can hardly wait. Rich has 3 children and Lisa has one.. It's going to be a wonderful life for them... Their children are happy for the wedding.

Yesterday I went over to Tracie's house.. Tracie and Ben are very sick with the sore throat, cold. Ben has medicine that goes into a nebulizer and he has to have treatment twice a day. He sits there and holds the mask himself.. "I do it~!.." Poor Tracie was so sick she stayed in bed all day.. I boiled some eggs and took them over to see if I could get Ben to eat something. He loved cracking them on the table and then peeling off the shell. Of course the salt shaker has to come to the scene~ shake~shake~shake..m-m-m-GranAnnie this tastes really good. He didn't like the yellow yoke, but at least he ate the white part.. He ate 3 eggs. Yeah~!
At 1 p.m. I told Ben he needed to take a nap so he could help his cold to get better. Usually I can't get him to take a nap but today I made a tent over his bed.. This was the key to getting him to first get into bed.. after getting under the covers and seeing the tent (blanket) over top of us he was delighted.. Oh my~! he was smiling big time and his eyes were so big . He loved it~! He sleeps in a bed that has tall posts on all corners ~ so it was easy to get the blanket high enough above our heads. I read him 3 books and then said it was time to sleep.. Nibbles was in his arms and within minutes he was asleep.. Oh thank goodness for tents.. He took a 2 hour nap.. Last night when I put him to bed he wanted the tent again over him... that was easy... he always likes to talk a little and of course we read some books.. and then Nibbles (a stuffed rabbit) and Ben gets kisses and hugs and off to sleep . I'm 1/2 way to 132 years old and I am so happy I still remember how to get small boys to bed and to sleep
Why do children fight going to sleep. It's beyond me ~ it's just so easy , lay down close your eyes relax and let it go...ZZZZZZZ~! I have no problems sleeping or taking just comes so easy.
I think I found the secret of staying warm and going outside in the frigid freezing outside. I have Curel body lotion and I liberally put some all over my body.. Couple days ago when I went geocaching I did this before bundling up.. you know I could feel a big difference.. Today when I went out for my walk,,,I lathered myself up with this cream.. and it was good.. Of course my silk long johns, heavy pants, sweat shirt and all the layers one has to wear when going outside plus the coat, scarf, mittens, boots helped a lot too. but I really am convinced that the cream is helpful in helping keep you warm..
Enjoyed reading all the blogs today that I follow.. Got a lot of great ideas from Activity Mom, I am MaMa hear Me Roar, Totally Tots,Two Bears Farm and the Three Cubs, theres more but off the top of my head I can't remember their names.... They have great ideas for toddlers and I like to try them out on Ben whenever I'm with him. Thanks girls~! Today I read in one of them about making sugar cookies the easy way.. no cookie cutters.. just divide the dough up in three balls. color two of the balls leave the 3rd one plain, roll them out ~lay the layers on top of each other . roll them all up like a log . It looks so cool~! Cut the log into even pieces~ put on baking sheet and bake.. easy squeezy... I can hardly wait to try these out with Ben...
Time to get busy~ washing day... Have a Tiggeriffic Day~! ta ta for now...from Iowa

I love the tent. JDaniel has an old comforter that covers part of his crib. He calls it Fort Daniel.

I hope everyone feel better soon.

The stamp is very cool.

I never knew you could put pictures on a stamp either! How cool is that? And I can't believe the tent you made for Ben on his bed because I used to do that with my daughter's poster bed too! Sugar cookies...yummy & I'm ready for more cookies!!!...:)JP

Great new songs! I love the picture of Bennie. He is such a funny boy.

I've always wanted to create some of those personal postage stamps -- maybe this year.

Congratulations to the happy couple. Sounds like they will have a house full of laughter and love. :)
