  1. Love this so very much...I can hear his little voice in my head. :) And somehow I don't think it would translate as this cute if I were to use my 13yo, do you? Although....it might be funny! :)

    Miss you...hope you are having a glorious time! I'm certain that you are...you have fun anywhere!

  2. I for some reason found it especially funny that he won't help Nana while you're gone. Poor Nana! I love those flat things too by the way. ;)

  3. I love his lasagna recipe. Kids see things the way they see things.

    Thanks for the chuckles.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

  4. A scholarly young man....well considered responses...but youll forgive me for not wanting to have dinner at your house?

  6. I love the last two responses - at least he was honest with the last one :)

    I'm following your pics on Instagram but can't comment as it doesn't work on a desktop pc and I don't 'do' Facebook etc. Can't wait for your story of Buckingham Palace!

  7. HA! I love those flat things with the sauce and cheese too. You'll have to share with us how you make salami. Maybe only pig farmers can do that. :-0)


Thank you for taking the time to tell me what you're thinking!
