In Which There is a Tiny Wagon

What is it about the miniature things (though this is not THAT tiny) that makes us love them so much?

Though this also fulfills my love of things to put things in, as well. It would go nicely into the tiny shopping carts I bought many of my friends when they were at Target ten years ago...

sigh. I should've bought one for myself. That shopping cart and this wagon could be best friends...

Well, time is a funny thing. My papa was not elected to the seat of mayor for which he had been running. It was a very long and very tense campaign with a lot of terrible moments. And now it's over. But now he will have more time. To play with James and hold Quinn and travel to visit his other kids and grandkids. Time to read a book or watch a movie or eat a giant breakfast. Now, time can begin fresh with fun stuff and none of the gigantic obligations his retired life has been full of. Now, he can party down.
And where will he certainly party down? My wedding, of course, because I am getting married in September and it is spectacularly weird to type that. The End.

A little late, but

Happy Birthday, Miss Carter! I am working on a present of a different kind for you, it is cooking in my brain!

You are six now, so you are responsible for making sure that you don't lose a shoe here and there and also you have to make sure that you know what song to sing when your sister or mommy or daddy is upset. You are very fun, and I love you.

A find! A find! Old and awesome!

It's another Noah's ark, with tiny animals. The dealer had said it was from the 40s, and it is surely handmade! The top hinges out to reveal the animals. I guess the flood got some because there are not two of each. Some are probably not from the original set. But you can love them too!
