FFF ~ fun times

Such fun times over the last two weeks here at A Sparrow’s Home – with so many blessings to celebrate!

1. Watching wee baby Oscar

3. Celebrating a WWW birthday girl! Happy (almost) birthday Rinda!Rinda_bday_sm4. A little visitor ~ Josie is here to stay for a few days while her Mommy and Daddy have a holiday from winter.Β Β  Songs, stories,walks, baths with bubbles, colouring, a trip to town with Auntie Sarah, kisses, hugs, cuddles – the fun is non-stop. Josie_teaparty_collage_smTea party with Nannie. (Note the pig-tails – the house might fall apart a bit while she’s here but her hair will be styled! πŸ™‚ )

5. Today is a special date. Twenty-six years ago (in a snowstorm) James Peter, our youngest son, was born. James_collage2He’s a wonderful son, brother, husband and uncle. Happy Birthday James – we love you! (James and I are March babies – and so is Oscar – and we’re going to celebrate our birthdays together next week. Looking forward to a lovely family time.)

And now . . . a bonus fave. While all you Southerners, and a few of my BC blogging buddies, are celebrating the actual arrival of spring, the rest of us are still inΒ  “waiting” mode. This video describes us – it’s funny and not very far from the truth!

Thanks so much for dropping in this week. Hope you enjoyed your visit.

Many blessings!

with love,

PS – visit Susanne for more Friday Fave fun! (Thanks for the lovely tulips on your Friday Fave badge Susanne – I’ll take spring where I can find it!)

  1. That video was hilarious. And I totally get it as we are under yet another pile of snow. How we get our hopes up for that 6th and 7th day bringing in warmer weather. LOL.

    You’re tulip are hardy brave little plants. And I’m loving Josie’s pigtails! Such fun having a tea party. Enjoy your birthday celebrations! Happy birthday to you all!

    But your little Josie is certainly sunshine enough for you.
    Happy Birthday to you this week!!

  3. Hi Kathie! Well, today’s temp here in VA was over 60, so spring may be coming. But Tuesday the forecast is calling for a couple of inches of snow! And I was ready to plant my flowers!

    Oscar is a real cutie!!! Have fun celebrating the family birthdays! And Happy Birthday to you, too!
