Let Playtime Begin!

I'm heading south for my visit with the girls and Liam.  I'm looking forward to sharing pics and stories from the weekend!  When I spoke to Liam this morning, and told him I was going to pick him up from school, he said "I know".  Then Jessi told me he told her that he knew I was picking him up because when I go to their house I always pick him up!  So funny, I love this age...he is very articulate about what he is thinking, no "filters" that we all seem to develop as we age...some filtering of what we say and feel is good, I know, but I sure do appreciate a young child's ability to simply say exactly what they think and feel!  

I love this flower, it is a chandelier plant; it is a succulent type plant that grows a long stem with small thick leaves all the way up, nothing too pretty to look at, but every now and then it has this beautiful bunch of flowers that burst from the top of the stem...they are such a pretty surprise at the end of that stalk!

Sunrise this morning...the beginning of a beeeeeutiful day!

Follow up thought...I am here!  I wrote the first part of my post earlier today, knowing that I would be happily occupied once I arrived...this is just a few words from the start of my visit...

A curly tail lizard stood guard at the door to Liam's school, I'd forgotten how big and prehistoric they look...welcome to south Florida!  This guy is about 6 inches long!

Liam wanted me to bring the fishing pole Santa brought him...he was so excited he kept looking at it while we drove.  He is so excited to go fishing, I think he would be satisfied to fish in the tub at this point!

The rest of the evening is sweet and wonderful and I have to get back to it.  More to tell tomorrow:)

Thanks for reading my blog, you are the best f/f/r/s/f's, see you tomorrow,
