The coolest eyes!!

My kid has the coolest eyes!  When she was little, they were blue blue blue for the longest time!  When they hadn't changed from blue by the time she was two, I was tickled excited that I (a brown eyed girl) had a blue eyed girl.  But happenned.  The change began.  They shifted with her mood and the lighting and any other force around until finally they ended up somewhere between green and brown and blue with a little gold, some grey and a few other freckles of neatness.  Having a blue eyed baby would have been wonderful, but Hazel is pretty stinking cool and quite frankly, I think that Hazel kicks blue's a&$ any day!!  :)

Joy stick!

When I was a kid, I wanted a Joy stick.  You know what I'm talking about - it was a promo with Joy dish detergent.  You could send it x number of proof of purchases and they'd send you a giant bubble making "Joy stick"!!  Well...I never got one cuz Mom bought a dishwasher which didn't take joy, and Nan was a die-hard palm olive user.  Gone was my dream. 

Recently, though, I had teh chance to live out my dream when we went to the dollar store!!!  There it was in its fluroescent orange splendor.  It had a different name, but the principle was the same :)  It was , for all intents an purposes, a joy-stick!!!  $2. +tx later, we were outta there and the kids had no idea why I was so giddy over a big plastic tube!!!

That weekend, I was the coolest Mom on the block!  (cept for the not living on a block part :)  We used the recipe on the pack and made our bubble solution for giant humungo bubbles.  The rest, as they say, is history!  Both the girls had a blast making ginormous bubbles!!  and I have to did I! 

Dontcha just love that face!!  That's a face havin fun is what that is!  Yup!  Lots and lotsa fun! :)
