My Airhead

I wish you could see my smile!

Today was one of those "maybe it is all worth it kind of days"!

Today I came home from 5 hours of teaching dance to PRE-SCHOOLERS and found this:


Loni made me a candy gram! She got the idea while we were in Kentucky. My sis (in-law) had made a fabulous one for her daughter's 8th birthday.

But it wasn't any better than mine.

Here is what this one said:

Dear Mom,
You are my sweetart!
Thank you for not being a nerd like Jordan, Justin, Jalen, and Johnny.
You are the best in all of the milkyway.
Even if your name was peanut butter or chedar cheese,
You'd still by my airhead!

Okay, I know that you are smiling now too.

And look how she made it, 4 pieces of paper covered with blue masking tape. And the lace.....Wow! She definately get's her love of lace from her Grammy!

Thanks Loni, you made my day!
