Wordless (full) Wednesday

It is wordless Wednesday again, and I thought I would share some of my 'sweet' pictures today.

First, something that my sweet daughter made.

Doesn't that look yummy? She made them for a friend's birthday. Unfortunately, her friend lives in Toronto, which is a good two hours away. So, Hillary packed them up in a tin and took them on the greyhound bus with her. She sat there with them on her lap for the whole two hour trip! They were in perfect shape when they arrived. Needless to say the Birthday Girl was thrilled!

Next, we have my son Taylor working on his pride and joy. His car. He bought this car two years ago when he was seventeen. This past winter and spring, he tore the entire car apart, from the wheels up, and restored it. He even tore down the motor and rebuilt it himself. You can understand why he was offered his mechanics apprenticeship at nineteen! As you can see in the picture, our dog Mercedes was never far away. Taylor calls her his 'helper dog'.

Last August, my brother, his wife, and their two little girls visited from Saskatoon. I went with them to Marine Land in Niagara Falls. It was a great day, so much to see and do. One of the girl's favorites was the petting zoo.

It was a long day, and the youngest was exhausted. She was too tired to get undressed, but insisted on wearing her slippers and sunglasses!

 Isn't she the sweetest thing?

So there you have it. I don't think it is possible for me to be wordless. But you don't mind too much, do you?

    P.S. Thanks for visiting my blog and for your sweet comment regarding my daughter's Barbie cake. You don't have an email account attached to your account, so I couldn't reply about the buttons. But basically what I do is I just manually shrink them down with my mouse on the "Compose" tab. Does that make sense? If not let me know and I will do a tutorial with screen shots next week!
