Picnics And Trolls

Sometimes after the outdoor fun 
we'd pop on over to Kohl's, which is right next door.
At home we always listened to old albums, Winnie The Pooh, Mary Poppins etc and
all of the movie soundtracks on Alexa.  Penny is very familiar with the Trolls' songs.
While in Kohl's she started screaming.....Trollllllllls.....I had no idea what she was 
talking about.....until I looked halfway across the store.
She saw this Trolls hat and needed to have it LOL
Of course, my dear!  It was on clearance for like $3 Ha!

September 2019

 She loved it!   And wore it well!

Butterfly Face Painting Scrapbook Page

Good Morning!   

When the kids lived in Weymouth I used to take Penny over to The Derby Street Shops in Hingham.  They had outdoor spaces for kids to run around and they had popular kids' musicians play each time, Mr. Peter and Nana Steph to name two.

We'd get there a bit early, scope out a nice spot and have a picnic lunch.

This day they had Touch An Ambulance and Face Painting.

September 2019

 She loved the Ambulance, and to this day will tell you why, the EMT tickled her lol

Corner Rounder
Spellbinders Labels 4 & * dies.
MFT Fancy Flourish.
DRU Butterfly #2 Set.
Cheery Lynn Small Lace Butterfly.
Memory Box Butterfly Exhibit, cropped.
Die Versions; A Little Lime Font, Curly Word Hello.
Glitter Paper.

 She got to check out a patient and 'talk on the radio'. 
She was even surprised with a little ambulance to take home.

This was a test!  I probably wanted to have her face painted more than she did.
The line was long.  Bakery next door--a Cookie Bribe might do the trick!  It did!
She was so good and patient while enjoying that cookie. 

I warned the gal that I didn't know if she would do it or not 
and she said no worries, she would try.
They both were great!

That face says it all!!!
She was sooooo Happy to be a beautiful Butterfly!
Parents were amazed!  ;)

These pages will be entered into the following Challenges:

Rainbow Scrapbook Page

 Good Morning!  

I must say that this little Sweet Pea is my favorite scrapbook subject.

She's already 3.5 years old and I have only completed a handful of Pages.

And so we begin!

April 2020

As you probably know her Gramps and I get to babysit one day each week, I used to do 2, but Lori went back to work full time.  We make the most of our days together.

Penny actually taught me this song:

Red and orange, green and blue
shiny yellow, purple too!
All the colors that I know
Live inside a rainbow
Red and orange, green and blue
shiny yellow, purple too!

She had fun breaking out her colorful scarves!

She is a 'Ham Sandwich' lol
