Today I babysat two very sweet children. Although I don't know if I can claim all caring going on since one little boy insisted on holding a sweet girl about every 2 minutes :)
He was so excited to see a baby.
He even had to take care of her hair.

I made cookies too. They were kinda good. Actually. They were pretty good. Almost really good, but not quite. :)

I also took Buster's picture(s), But what he really wanted was for me to throw something for him to chase. I did eventually. This is Buster begging.

Holding babies is just so special.

reading a story...

Lately Lucas has been enjoying babysitting my doll. He is babysitting because I asked him if he was a daddy, he said no. I asked him if he was the big brother, and he said no. so I asked him if he was babysitting my doll. and he said yes. He is pretty sweet.
Rocking and reading a story. works every time.

Fun free stuff.

So in my last post I said that I got a sample of free business cards. and they are really cute even though they have their name on the bottom of them.
I got to upload my pictures and design what they looked like. To a certain extent.
anyhow. Here is the link if you want to try to make some too.

A while ago there was a list of 25 random things that a person would fill out about themselves. and I never got around to doing it. So, now (even thought it is a little late) I am going to do it! :)

1. My favorite spice to use is parsley. It used to be sweet basil, but I don't like that anymore.
2. I like shoes, and I feel I have very good taste in them too. and so do my friends who hand them down to me. ( Thanks Becky!)
3. I recently have been adding photos to Flickr. not very many though.

4. I got a haircut last Friday, and a re-haircut this morning. ( not enough layers.)

5. I bought a book for 47 cents the other day. but the shipping was $3.99. and I haven't gotten it yet.

6. Sometimes I read a lot. Sometimes I don't.

7. I like scarves. In bright colors.

8. I am so very very excited to go on a trip with some really fun people.

9. I wish I didn't cut my hair as short as I did.

10. I am wearing a bright blue scarf.

11. I like cupcakes.

12. I need to clean Luke's car. ( I said I would for free. He did offer to pay me five dollars. although before I said I was raising the price to 10.)

13. He is going to retrieve me when I am done tripping to the other side of the country.

14. Did you understand that? Cause I am not sure I do.

15. That last one was almost cheating because it isn't about something random. about me. but that's OK cause neither is this one.

16. I am making jello jigglers right now. actually I am letting the fridge do the work at the moment. but tonight I am going to try to make them into hearts. ( it is strawberry jello.)

17. I had Macaroni salad for lunch. Mom made it and I stirred it.

18. Tomorrow is fellowship dinner at church. I am taking (see #16 and #11)

19. I think that today is a lovely day. This morning when I looked out my window there was all sorts of sparkles on the trees. and a blue blue sky.

20. I got 10 complimentary business cards/info cards. from They are really really cute.

21. Tomorrow is Valentines day. and I am going to wear pink. I think.

22. I like to vacuum and mop. sometimes. I have to take all the chairs out of the room though. The ones at the table anyways. And sometimes the rocking chair. It makes it so much more thorough and probably a better workout.

23. My burnt hand is pretty much completely healed. It is an amazing process.

24. I forgot to do laundry this morning.

25. I have 13 neices and nephews.

There you have it. I am not really that random. and I am done. and I cheated. I don't know why it is so hard.

Love, Keren

Saturday afternoon tea.

It was a small affair. Five guests and myself. One a Famous Ballerina, Two cowboys and one small Fairy. and also a very small blue green pony.
~The Menu~
Tuna salad on Saltines
Petite Pickle Spears
Chocolate Peanut butter fudge
Hot Chocolate

Performance by Sari (also ballet)
Both were met with enthusiastic applause.

~Little Lord Fauntly~ ( not quite sure if the name fits the personality :] )

~Knight Jonathan Ransome~ ( known for his exuberant taste in hats.)

~Miss Rowena Randle~

At the Tea. Where we had hot cocoa :)
and I forgot to take a portrait of Ellina Equine- she is at the end of the table, sorta hidden by the flowers.

The End.
Love, Madame Elizabeth Sparkles. :)

Last night Luke and I babysat the Cobb kids. I thought it was kinda cute the way they were watching the Wily Coyote on Luke's computer.
Here is a picture of my cute little charge, who actually I should go wake up. but yup. He's cute.

I got a new job. A sweet little girl. Her name is Jenna.
I will be watching her mostly on the days that Lucas doesn't come. She wasn't too sure that her parents should leave her, But she eventually decided that we were OK. :)
(isn't her shoe cute!?!)

and in other news.... Abbi is having a giveaway and I know that by telling you this I may get competition. but, yup. it ends tomorrow ( February 4th, 2010).

Have a lovely day!
