More Summer Fun...and Lil' Tidbits

If only summer could go on forever...we are having so much fun! I'm adjusting to all of my night shifts, and enjoying the fact that Lily and I have our days to go to the beach, or hang out at the fountains. Lily is completely content to play in the water, or sand. (for hours.) I have actually been able to lay out in the sun and RELAX! I have a tan! ME! And, I also want to thank my good friend over at Lady In Waiting for giving my blog such a fun summer makeover. It just makes me SMILE!

(This might be my favorite picture of the bunch)

SUCH concentration!

Lily and Pay-Pay! (sweet little fishies)

Now for some Lil' Tidbits:
-Lily called me into her room late one night to tell me that her ring was too tight on her finger. I struggled a bit and finally got it off of her. She asked "Mommy, did it weave a mark?" I told her that yes, it probably did. She asked "Can God heal my finger?" I replied "Of course He can. God can do anything." So, she turned on her side and said "God, pwease heal my finger and make the mark go away. Haymen." I thought it was so cute, so I giggled. She said "Mommy, are you waughing cuz I pway so good?"
-She was upset, at first, about me working so many shifts. So, I explained to her that I need to make money for groceries, toys, etc. So, she has now decided that SHE would like to make money too. I told her she is still too young to get a real job, but if she wants to do some housework for me I'll give her some money. So, yesterday I asked her what she wanted to do and she replied "housework, pwease."
-The other day she was holding both of her index fingers up, so I grabbed one. She said "Mommy, that is my butt finger!" I inquired "Lily, what exactly is your BUTT finger!?" Her answer: "It's the finger that goes in my pwack to see what's happenin'." Oh no she didn't!
On that note, I'll bid you farewell. I'm going to enjoy my day off...going to see Steven Curtis Chapman and Michael W Smith in concert tonight, can't wait!

She is just so cute and I love how she has such faith in God at such a young age. Eli is starting to talk to about Jesus and singing Jesus songs and it warms my heart.

LaLa said...

Love the new bloggy look : ) So sweet enjoying her summer. I know what you mean, Annslee starts school again in a month and I am soooo sad : ( I will miss her.

the butt finger killed me!!! Love that she is so sweet in her praying.

Hope you have a fun time at the concert : )

Hi Nikki!

Lily tidbits are always sure to give me a laugh for the day...she is so funny!

Ella has such a hard time understanding me having to go to work. I have been working since she has come home to us...2 plus years...and it still upsets her a lot. On my days off she tells me with the biggest smile on her face, "Mommy, I am so proud of you for not going to work". Talk about a guilt trip!

Have a great day, Nikki....I also wish summer would last all year round!

Kim said...

Enjoy that concert tonight. I saw they were coming together, it should be fantastic!

JulieM said...

Oh I couldn't agree more ... if only summer could last forever. It looks like you are having so much fun!! Love the beach pictures!

Girlfriend, that Lily is hilarious. Love the butt finger comment. She keeps me rolling. I can't wait until Sofia can talk. I wanted to let you know I am running a little contest over at my blog, make sure you come by and enter okay? It should be a few posts down and it's called the De-Lurking contest. Give sweet little Lily-bug a kiss from me and Sofia.

Tiffany said...

I am laughing so hard about the BUTT finger! That is a riot.

Beautiful photos of beautiful Lily!

Heather said...

Nikki - these pictures are fabulous - they capture the very essence of what summer is all about. Lily's suit is entirely too cute ( I love blue and white) and she is precious gem straight from Heaven.

Relax - I remember what that was like, I think. I know it will all come around again and all too soon I'll be blogging Hannahisms:)

Thanks so much for sharing your joys with us - the party Sat looks like fun too - those kiddoes are cuties.

Have a wonderful week!

Anne Marie said...

And I am betting that that sweet girl is going to offer to give the money right back to you to help with groceries and toys!

Good day !.
You re, I guess , probably curious to know how one can collect a huge starting capital .
There is no need to invest much at first. You may start earning with as small sum of money as 20-100 dollars.

AimTrust is what you need
The firm represents an offshore structure with advanced asset management technologies in production and delivery of pipes for oil and gas.

Its head office is in Panama with structures around the world.
Do you want to become a happy investor?
That`s your chance That`s what you wish in the long run!

I feel good, I began to take up income with the help of this company,
and I invite you to do the same. If it gets down to choose a proper partner who uses your savings in a right way - that`s it!.
I earn US$2,000 per day, and my first investment was 500 dollars only!
It`s easy to start , just click this link
and go! Let`s take our chance together to feel the smell of real money

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my web site to get additional info. [url=]Online Investment Blog[/url]
