How Can it BE?

Yes of course, that's The Dan Man with his hand in the air. He is one spunky kiddo, and I love every bit of him. He is so charismatic and animated. He reminds me so much of myself and his momma at this age. Absolutely nothing goes by him without some comment or commentary.
This was at the end of Vacation Bible School I took him to in NJ this summer. They had quite a party afterward. Including confetti.
He went around and picked some up and asked me to put in my pocket for later. Of course I told him at first I didn't want to put into MY pocket, but with a bit of pleading I acquiesced. On the way home from the event, he asked for the confetti back. With guarded thoughts I did give it to him in my car, and of course told him NOT to throw it in my car. He assured me he wouldn't, then asked for POPPIES ashes we had in the car. Can you imagine what was going through my head at this point. (O we have a small mason jar of ashes in the car since the kiddos wanted to disperse some on our vaca)!
Later, I asked him what he did with that confetti. Well he put it in the ashes container. "Grandmom, Poppie needs them to play with, doesn't he!", was his reply. What could this Granny say to that. So now Poppie has confetti to play with in his ashes!

I need to come back later (soon) for a catch up. I'm busy busy getting ready for an open house here in a couple weeks. We hope to sell and downsize...yikes, that's a lot of work.

hope all is well with you and yours.
