Overheard at Nonna's House during Spring Break

Spring Break : A week of organizing, cleaning, relaxing a bit and then celebrating Easter.

Today our dear little Amélie is 3 years old.  So much to be thankful for!

Her most memorable quotes of the week . . .
Nonna: Come here monkey . . . it's time to put jamies on.
Amélie:  Nonna, I am not a monkey . . . I'm a child.

Later after several dances in the living room, Amélie begs Nonna to dance with her: "Nonna, just get up and wiggle your bum!"

On the other side of the lake, Alexander, sans clothes, ran to the mirror and yelled out, "I'm nakey, I"m nakey, I'm nakey!"  I'm fairly certain that it was our son and not his beautiful wife who taught him this phrase!

And to the south, those darling boy twins are into saying "Yo BABY!"

i thank You God for most this amazing day:
for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky;
and for everything which is natural 
which is infinite
which is yes.
