I've Been Butterflied!



Today I was feeling a little sad for my kids dogs as I watched them tip toe around on sore, scabby, bloody little paws from their 10 hour excursion yesterday.... so it was a perfect day to receive The Butterfly Award. Thank you Goats In The Garden for making ME smile today!! If only you could send me a fainting goat named Myrtle my life would be complete. I've always wanted a fainting goat.
Now I need to start working on my nominees.....but in the meantime, here is a random picture that has nothing to do with anything.
The year was 1986 and I was just a young teenager. I wasn't just any teenager mind you...
oh no, I was a teenager with a dog, a camera, and a dream.
Behold......... 'Tootsie'

Congratulations! 2 awards in your first 4 months of blogging! I am sooo proud of you, your photography, your writing. Princess would also be proud to see her "Tootsie" photo on your blog! I hope you can find a way to work in all of those delightful photos. And if you ever get that whole musical slideshow in a format you can post on YouTube or Facebook, that would be heaven! And as your Mom I can brag - you were a teenager who won all the high school level competitions until you tied for the top place nationally! Love you!

Awwww...this is so cute, I feel like I'm interrupting a family moment.

But seriously, Tootsie cracked me up!

Granma nearly got ran over by three reindeer this morning! They came from an empty lot. Luckily I was watching and Daisy Mae & I stopped in time and waited for them to cross the street into Mike's yard. That's ten since deer season ended. Now I have it figured out--they are doing that just to pick on Mike--NANA NANA BOO BOO. Ya missed us now, ya missed us, now ya gotta kiss us!
