Ellery: But Mommy will there be streamers tomorrow for my birthday?
Me: I don't think so baby...we don't have any...
Hopefully the raccoons and squirrels won't eat them up, so she can come in bright an early to pink streamers galore!
ps..... I will not zoom in on the kitchen shot....the birthday cereal is an unmentionable! Sometimes it is there decision alone. The dutiful little Ellery thought long and hard as she chose between the one on our counter and "good for your body" choice. She took. Put back. Replaced. Took again. The little angel told me she chose the one she did because of the game on the back. She is so sweet. It melted my heart to see her want so bad to please me with the healthy cereal :) I made it a little easier and assured her whatever she choose would be okay for her birthday!
t h e m a y f i l e s is foremost a family blog, chronicling everyday life. Life including natural, healthy eating (with recipes thrown in at random), home educating (with ideas popping up sporadically), an attempt to homestead on .2 acres (with very meager yields), raising 3 of 4 children with a rare genetic disorder, and lots of highly personal family triumphs and failures. You may also find an eclectic array of musings on politics, exercise, sewing, emergency preparedness, backyard chickens, and religion. This blog isn't a campaign to glorify anyone or anything. Just simply a record.
