~*The World Of Home*~

"I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see."

Our Easter egg tree... ~
We had a wonderful Easter.
Tore and Anita came to visit from Norway, along with Abbie's sister, Sophie, her brother, Per, and Per's girlfriend, Katja.
We had a wonderful time with them all.
The sad news is-believe it or not- we did not take out the camera once to take pictures! I guess we were having too much fun visiting...
But, however we do have a lot of photos, from just around the homestead, and here they are...

Sophia's new hair cut!

A real little artist.

Making playdough.

The little gal's drawings...

Don't you lose heart, Pole," said Puddleglum.
"I'm coming, sure and certain. I'm not going to lose an opportunity like this. It will do me good. They all say - I mean, the other wiggles all say - that I'm too flightly; don't take life seriously enough. If they've said it once, they've said it a thousand times. 'Puddleglum,' they've said, 'you're altogether too full of bobance and bounce and high spirits. You've got to learn that life isn't all fricasseed frogs and eel pie.'..."
