LOVE IS..............and school holiday update!

I was sent this email today and thought i would share some of my favorite ones..............

What Love means to a 4-8 year old . . ?Slow down for three minutes to read this. It is so worth it. Touching words from the mouth of babes. A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds, 'What does love mean?' The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined See what you think:

'When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn't bend over and paint her toenails anymore. So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That's love.' Rebecca- age 8

'When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.' Billy - age 4

'Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other.' Karl - age 5

'Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK.' Danny - age 7

'Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.' Bobby - age 7 (Wow!)

'If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend who you hate,' Nikka - age 6

'Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it everyday.' Noelle - age 7

'Love is when Mommy gives Daddy the best piece of chicken.' Elaine-age 5

'Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day.' Mary Ann - age 4

'I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes and has to go out and buy new ones.' Lauren - age 4

'When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you.' Karen - age 7

'Love is when Mommy sees Daddy on the toilet and she doesn't think it's gross.' Mark - age 6

How sweet!

***********OK EXCITING PUPPY NEWS*********
I have to share with everyone our newest ALMOST family member.
MEET CHUCK we can pick him up in 2 weeks and i am so excited he is so tiny and so sweet. He looks like a giant in the photo but look at the size of his head compared to the ladies hand.
Knowing that we are going to have a new puppy in the house has helped with the grieving process a lot....we all still miss pip and i think chris has his reservations about a new pup he says because of the $ factor but i think he is also scared of getting attached again when pip got hit by the car and when we lost her it really got to him and it is tough for him because he had pretended for so long that he didn't 'love' her i think because she was a girly pup and not a big tough dog like most guys want. But he knows in the end i really need this and as a family we aren't the same without a puppy.


Does anyone out there that reads my blog know how to knit and follow knitting pattens? I have found some sweet dog jumpers and was wondering if anyone would be interested in making one for chuck if i provide the wool and some $.....not sure what people would charge either. Please let me know if you can help. Here is one of the jumpers. OBVIOUSLY NOT BOY COLOURS ! i would be happy with a solid colour if it was easier.

Coby has been sick for the first week of the school hols he has a pretty good cold but i has started to break now so he is on the mend. Im glad he got sick now when i had organised a week off work. He has been hanging out in my bed watching TV, eating cookies and drinking hot lemon drink. YES LOTS OF CRUMBS IN MY BED!!!!!!!

We have also ben hanging out at mum's house a bit with hailey and baby ella who is growing....well slowly she had bronchitis and was in hospital for a week and is now putting weight back on she is still tiny though.
Coby and bailey had a crafty afternoon on tuesday at mum's house. Kellie gave me an alien craft kit with lots of bits and pieces so the boys sat for over an hour......which is great for them especially with no arguing.

Here are some of their creations....

We went to see disney on ice on friday it was awesome i had a ball and coby loved it. He was amazed about the story of the little mermaid so when we got home we went and hired it and he has seriously watched it 3 times in less than 24 hours he loves it...i have to admit it is a great kids dvd for a cold morning in bed.

How are your school holidays going?

Thanks for stopping by please remember to leave a comment.
