Changing Of the Seasons.

I'm having trouble letting go of SUMMER !!!! I love to see the changing of the Seasons I didn't get any pictures of Spring when Mother Earth starts waking up the flowers and trees because at that time we had ice all over. ( But i like this picture ) Summer. My Rose bushes didn't die on me.

Fall watching the trees change, building leaf piles ( my niece Mercedes )

Winter. Snow covering my bamboo. I only have a small patch hopefully it will spread next year.

Big # 3

When I asked her how old she was she told me 7 or 8, she finally told me 3. Sweet pea turned 3. It was fun to watch the kids running and playing, the only downfall was her dad was 2 hours late, some of her guest didn't even get cake ( SORRY GUYS ).
Her favorite Tink was on the cake.

The only 2 people she said she wanted at her party her favorite 2 cousins Sierra ( pink ) Summer ( Lil Blondie ) LeiAnna ( Birthday girl in the middle )

after LeiAnna opened Summer's gift it was time for a cousin hug.

Summer's gift. She will not let anyone touch it!!

Old Wives Tales and other Sayings

Some of the best memories I have growing up was sitting around listening to some of the old wives tales and saying that have been passed down from generation to generation. You can probably guess what the first one is. Step on a crack break your mothers back. ( as a kid this scared the daylights out of me, I remember running home crying because I thought I really hurt my mom ).

Bad luck to step over a broom.
I'm not sure if anyone knows this one. Still to this day my mom makes me step backward over a broom if i have crossed it.

Playing with fire makes you wet the bed. As a kid you couldn't get me to go near fire even a camp fire was out for me.

Step on a cricket you have bad luck. Okay how many of you out there had a vivid imagination, this was chicken in our play house. along with juniper berries, grass, dirt (for mud pies ).
Those are my favorites. Here's a few more to get you thinking of some you've heard over the years.
5.When a bell rings, An Angel gets their wings.
6. Honey and Whiskey takes a cough away
7. When you shiver, it means someone has stepped on your grave.
8.If a Lady bug lands on you it means good luck
9. If your ear itches someones talking about you.
10. If you sweep someones feet with a broom it's bad luck.
11. Bad luck for two people to mess in one persons head.
12. Bad luck for a Man to lay a hat on the bed.
13. Bad luck for two people to sweep in the same room.
14. If your palm itches, moneys coming your way.
15. Second person off the match gets pregnant
