ta! da!!!! (and a giveaway..)

sounding the trumpets...carrying on like a school girl...yep...WAY UNDERESTIMATED my bloggability...this summer... I thought for sure...this easy-going-got-NOTHING...(i snicker here) to do summer...i could prepare a long tall glass of lavender (is there ANY OTHER KIND??)ice tea...and bloggy for hours.... Well best laid plans quickly get whooooooooooooooooooooooooooooshed to the side...don't they?

Even as the saying goes...corn kneehigh by the fourth of july...didn't quite make it..but if you'd throw in there...AUGUST...we MADE IT!!!

My bits of time quickly were compacted and filled the hours...bits of time to do sewing...firefly catching...

bits of time to have babies come to play....

bits of time to watch the early nighttime hours thru the wired links in fences....

...AND Maddy's team is going to the championships in a game played at the Brewers Miller Park little League stadium! GO SLUGGERS!!!

Bits of time that if we pause too long...the dust will cover our feet..

bits of time to hold tiny Lavender babies as they slept...

...because as we all know babies have that magical way to grow ever so quickly and soon we witness them zipping by...unable to stop...them...from growing again and again...

and soon they are about to turn TEN...TEN!!!???? Where did those moments go??

just know that even with the tiniest fingers...learning..growing...exploring...with each and every gesture...they are saying

I LOVE YOU....just read into it!

can't promise...a post soon....could happen at any time...because we have to grab hold of those bits of time...and use best we can! HUGZ...til next time!

BUT....THOSE THAT LEAVE A COMMENT...WILL BE ENTERED INTO A DRAWING...FOR A SPOOKYLICIOUS...halloween ART DOLLIE....between NOW and my impending 400TH POST!!! (and that's only 3 away!!)
