A Special Request

 When do ordinary hard boiled eggs
become something to jump up and down about?
 When you add stickers!

Many of you know that Tom & I live very close to
our son-in-law & daughter, Lulu, Levi and Ila May.
(I know I am blessed and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't remember this.)

I babysit my grandchildren on a regular basis.
I treasure these times.

When I was leaving the last time I babysat,
Levi was trying to tell me something and
I just couldn't understand his little words.
 Kimmy translated for me.
Levi wanted me to drop off a "snack" for him on the doorstep.
(I love to drop off little surprises, on my way to work).

Well, that's all I had to hear.
But I was all out of the regular goodies.
"light bulb moment"

He loves hard boiled eggs!
So I added little stickers to them.
He loved them.
Especially, the "Beetle" car sticker.

Check out Kimmy's blog post for Levi's reaction.


  1. Oh, I hope my future grandbabies live near me. What fun!

  2. Your grandkids are so lucky to have you close by!! You are all blessed to have each other in your lives.
