Little Men Love


I'm just home from a week with the Little Men & Co..  Oh, these two are just the bee's knees!  They delight their Noni's soul.  I miss them so very much.


And, I cherish each moment I have with my Little Men...

Even when I am exhausted from dragon making, I wouldn't trade a single millisecond.  ;)


I found this collection of quotes on one of our adventures; there are ninety of them. I think I am going to put them in a big ironstone bowl.  But for now, I'm enjoying them as a stack on my desk.  I do love a good quote.  Words hold the power to hurt or heal, inspire or defeat... May we always use them with care.


As a belated report on the fresh apple cake, it was good... just not as good as I had hoped.  I think I like a bit more spice in my fall-ish treats.  The praline icing was WONDERFUL though! 

I hope each of you have moments you will cherish this week...

Hi Tanna!
I love seeing your "Little Men"
and how they are growing. Our son surprised us by calling to let us know they are coming from CA to NC for Thanksgiving. They were just here in June and we thought it would be next year before they came back. It visit each week via I-Pad and it is amazing to see what's new each time. I also love your quotes.

"Silence" on you blog led me to believe that the "Little Men" might be involved! Cherished memories.

Best,

Oh our post go together this morning..similar hearts! I do love quotes also and yes, all you said about the power of words is so true.
I am so glad you had a wonderful visit in Boy Land!

Debbie said...

So funny...
I had a precious few minutes before leaving to go out of town, and I sat down to my blogger dashboard. The top post was from Janette, and yours was right below it.

I would say that God is directing my attention to little boys this morning.

Think I will use it as a reminder to pray for the "IS TO COME" boys in my life, and the big fellow who was someone's little boy once upon a time.

Oh you've made some more good memories. What a great photo. I wondered if you were there---wishing it was this coming week as I'll be there ... was going to check and see if our times coincided ... :-(
Looks like a fun set of quotes!

Chatty Crone said...

Oh I agree enjoy those kidlets when you can - they are so adorable. The cake looks good to!

Bonnie said...

I love your photographs. LIke the depth of field-so pretty. Your "little men" are growing so fast. Glad you had a recent visit with them.

Your cake looks delicious and I am sure your image will stay with me for a while. Hopefully I might act and make a fall cake and have some people over.

Thank you for the quote about words. How I need to remember that.

You are the best Tanna! But how it works with dragon?

TexWisGirl said...

love that trio of faces in your shot. :)

Christine said...

Oh I know your feelings about Delights and Missing them!
Being exhausted but enjoying every moment.

(I will have those same feelings next for for a whole week.)

Mereknits said...

Your happy face speaks a thousand words, you can feel the love you all have for each other in that picture. Sorry you are home missing your boys, but glad you are home safe and sound.
Hugs to you,
Meredith

The little men are really growing. I see the maturity in their faces. Sweet...sweet

Stitchy Mc Floss said...

Awww that is such a sweet picture! So much love in those happy faces!

OH I am so happy for you. Time with little men and dragons too!!

I want some praline frosting ..oh my

Wanda said...

Your little men are so adorable. Loving on them would be the highlight of any day.

I love quotes too, and have a blessing box that a friend gave me that holds daily blessings. She made it especially for me, so some of the blessing are very personal.

The cake...what can I say..Texas is to far away..my finger just can't quite reach that frosting!!!

Jill from Killeny Glen said...

WONDERFUL photo of you and the sweet little guys!!!! So glad you could have a nice visit!

The quote cards are CHARMING!

Donna said...

Oh, Tanna, there is so much love and happy in that first picture! Seems like they get as much joy out of the visits as you...but, of course they would.
Love the quotes....wouldn't it be fun to just leave them around in random places for people to find? But, you would have to have 2 sets because who can get rid of a good quote if they don't have a back up? :-)
See? Now, I need a set or two. I think it would make a good Birthday Project.....hmmm.
Love, d.
So, so, so happy that you like my little quilt.
Really.

a whole week!!!

our son and family have been visiting this weekend....about 48 hours of fun and frolicking....and hearing---every other minute---Grandma!!! It was wonderful, too.

Pride In Photos said...

Little Men and Co...what a delight they are!!! They have such soulful brown eyes...going to be lady killers down the road. But I have to say...your praline icing looked delightful.

karen said...

I don't know what I like more, the photo of the little ones or that cake! I would love a sliver of it :)

Sandy said...

Your little guys are sooo cute and I know just as sweet. Embrace every moment with them.
The cake looks really delicious.

Tanna - you look so incredibly happy holding those handsome young little men! They are growing so fast - I know you loved your time getting and giving squeezes :) And, not matter what it tasted like, your cake is beautiful!
