"We Love Ikea" and Winner

I had a busy week that involved a lot of children.

Ms. unKit has two beautiful children 7 and 5. They stretched my imagination and added so much to my day. I had conversations that were well structured, I now know the secret hiding place (shhhhh), I attended not 1 but 4 solo concerts. My favorite was "I've Got Levite Genes Down in My Soul." A and Meemee did a wonderful job singing and adding their special touch to the song. They both helped me with a few business decision was I was trying to make!

I love A and Meemee as they are both very special and unique. God bless them both, because they have blessed me.

Family Pet....and it is HUGE!

"We Love Ikea" was our chat heading in and out of Charlotte Friday. Shannon and her two creative and fun children spent the day with us shopping. Allison and Jed rocked the house. I was once again serenaded and I don't know if I like the one where the frog went splat and dog ate it. Ask Shannon.

This was Shannon second trip and my first trip to Ikea. Talk about all your dreams coming true in one place. WOW! Of course to you think I walked out of there empty handed? Not by a long shot. LOL I have a beautiful, wooden wall unit for storage. Get this, It was tax free day! Oh, yeah.

Jed played for awhile in childcare provided by Ikea! Allison tied out most all the beds at Ikea....."I like that" then jumped in under the covers. I think everyone around her was enjoying her as well. Okay, I'm not around little ones as much any more but Jed can crack you up with the wittiest things. And with those big, round beautiful eyes like his sister I could not resist his pleas for anything. That's what an adopted grandma is for, right?

We were tired and hot in the end, but those two were the highlight of my day. What fun! Allison and Jed, want to go to Ikea??? I know I do.
