An Emma-ism


Phone call from Emma – age 4

Emma:   “Grammy, I’m going to buy you a Christmas present.”

Grammy:  “You are?  How nice.  Are you going to use the money in your piggy bank?”

Emma:  “NO (she said emphatically), I’m going to use the money in Momma’s piggy bank!”

Out of the mouths of babes.

On another note…. Our house closed yesterday!


We decided to drive to the new lot.  (just to see if it was still there…LOL).  When we got there, the permit box was put in.  


That was very exciting. It means that things are moving right along!

I’m making tortellini soup right now.   I’ll post the recipe for you tomorrow.    It’s so yummy!

Till then…Anne

Oh Anne, Emma is soooo adorable!! Nothing better than phone calls from the little ones.

Congrats on the closing! Now the fun begins :0)

Also looking forward to your soup recipe. I like my tortilla soup but it's not wonderful. I'll have to try yours.
