Buzz LightEar

Eli’s ear was bit by something.  Or stung by something.  We still don’t really know.  It was bright red and much larger than his other ear.  We asked him what happened to his ear.  He had quite the story to tell…

Grateful For Cousins (Day 2)

Grateful For Cousins (Day 2)

Today I am grateful for cousins.  My youngest, Eli, and my niece, Mocha Cub, are 10 months apart.  I watch my nieces while their parents work, so they are almost as comfortable in my home as they are in their own.  They also have a very special bond with my […]
