THE Wedding


 I will watch the wedding tomorrow.

Yes. I am one of those.

I watched the first wedding (VERY PREGNANT with my third child)

on July 29, 1981.

The whole thing intrigues me.

The romance.

The tradition.

The secrecy of the dress.

4:00 a.m. tomorrow.

Me and my coffee.

Watching the wedding.

Will you join me?

The Progression Of Picture Taking

Taking a picture of the 3 1/2 year old is easy.
The 16 month old...not so much.
This is what we do.

Give her an old cell phone...........

.....and promise jelly beans.(Their mommy is holding them up behind my head):)

 .....mission complete!!

But all it took was two jelly beans Nonny!!

Tuesday Tip

We buy lots of spinach/lettuce.

To keep it fresh and keep the moisture from molding it

this is what we do.

We put paper towels on the bottom and top of the spinach.

The towels absorb the moisture

which, in turn, keeps the spinach fresh for a longer time!!

Just thought I would share.

Hope to make this Tuesday Tips a regular thing!

Have you tried this?????
