Too Much Time at the Bakery?

Evelyn says to me this morning on the way to the bakery.

"For my birthday, I'm going to mix my own colors for my frosting and Grampy is going to ice down my cake." In continuing her train of thought she got distracted and her next sentence came out like this. "I'm going to mix pink and yellow together and I'll get a - cat!"
It was also stated that she wanted a princess and Cars cake. If you ever want to know what Evie is thinking you just have to ask her. Sometimes you don't even have to ask.

Starry Nights

Salutations to Everyone.

Shawn, Evelyn and I are nearing our 1 year anniversary of being here in Kentucky. It has been a great adventure so far and we know we are far from done.

The other night was a clear and beautiful evening. We (Evelyn, Shawn and Tammy) drove to a new development not far from town and parked the car and laid in the middle of the road looking at the stars. We were there for over an hour enjoying the quiet. Only one train passed through town during that time and it didn't even blow it's whistle. Usually it doesn't matter what time of day or night it is - they like to blow their whistle. We were watching the starts and thought we saw a shooting star. It turned out to be a lightening bug! It is really something to be laying on the ground and have lighted up bugs float above your face. What God was thinking when he made these creatures? Just little things to amuse those of us that can navigate away from the tv and look for other entertainment?

Ok... this has turned into deep thoughts by Tammy Mickschl.

I saw a sign on the side of a tow truck driving to work this morning. It said...We don't want an arm and a leg just your tows.

More to come later.
