safety check!

safety check

sorry to have been missin again...it was mini's birthday week and i was quite busy entertainin a daily arrival of 14 year old girls. i need to do some catchin up but wanted to blog up this shot o my trusty assistant checkin out the safety o mini's birthday tower....it passed inspection and mini said it was the best present ever (but not where her daddy could hear as he is in charge o the BIG presents). i will try to blog up some o the things that made up this o so incredible tower over the next few days. of course it's somethin that will soon appear in my friend amy's sweetest shop on the worldwideweb , inspirecompany.com. she's been workin on it for some time and i was delighted to let her experiment with it on my mini....specially since she has provided my end o presents for mini's birthday week for many years now.

gonna go grab me one last piece o the baskin-robbins birthday cake before gettin' to work here in the doo dad den. i may need to add an extra 10 or so miles a day to my workout for some time to come....eatin every meal with 14 year old girls is dangerous. no matter how much i ate, it seemed i was dietin compared to what they were eatin but i do believe it ended up being about twice what i would regularly eat...jo is feelin the extra snackin too - she told me today that when she sits down it feels like she's got her own cushion built in to her backside and that even her tube tops seemed a bit snug and there's nothin' worse than somethin' with an ol' one size fits all label stitched into it not fittin'!

thanks for not givin' up on me durin' the birthday week...can't wait to see you back here on a regular basis again!

I can't tell which I love more in the photo... the clever tower, that gorgeous quilt, or Miss Tink's sweet little profile! Can't wait to see the diminutive treasures -- Amy always has the most adorable surprises on her shelves.

Good luck keeping up with the girls -- if they start running too far ahead of you, just send them over to Jo's for the afternoon. I'm sure the aluminum could use a polish! xo :)

Good thing you have such a good watch dog patroling and keeping an eye on Mini's presents. I can't wait to see what tiny treasures are inside.

You have the most adorable assistant! I can't wait to find out what was in those boxes.

if tink is like my furry boys, she's trying to figure out if that flower on top is edible or not....lol!! sounds like it was a lot of fun. hmmm...we've got a birthday coming up here in a few weeks -- i'm going to become the mother of (gasp) a teenager!! and he's already been acting like one, too. he'll ask me for suggestions, then argue with everything I say. grrrr...if I didn't understand that was a normal part of their need to establish themselves as independent beings, I think I'd be considering popping him in the jaw! lol! and I'm sure we've just seen the tip of the iceberg... :-)
Looking forward to more of your blogging.....

I can't wait to see what's in the boxes. The quilt is "to Die For". I am sure you stitched it together in your spare time.

How do you do it? I hardly have enough time to read my email let alone do all the stuff you do Mo.
