ahhh.....feelin' much better now
got Christmas under my belt
packed up all the old toys....and old bags for the goodwill
got bags for friends with children....gotta love hand-me-downs....right.
the crafting is coming is the family room re-do.

One of my newest cuties ...... first comes love.....

First comes love
Second comes marriage
Here comes April with a baby carriage
remember that silliy-ness from grade school....oh grade school.....definitely has its own set of unique memories...
step on a crack you break your mother's back.....I can remember all the way to the lunchroom avoiding the cracks at all costs....I loved that mommy of mine....still do.
and you remember jump rope songs....and those hand clapping jive know you and your girlfriends stood facing each other and did a series of hand clapping to a little song fast .......then faster still.
Remember this one...
Say, Say, Oh Playmate Say, say, oh playmate
Come out and play with me.
Bring out your dollies three.
Climb up my apple tree.
Slide down my rainbow
Into my cellar door.
And we'll be jolly friends
Forevermore, one two three four!
Say, say, oh playmate
I cannot play today
My dollies have the flu
Boo hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo
My apple tree is dead
My rainbow's gone away
My cellar door is locked
Forevermore, one two three four
Ewww....did you do this at your school...stack up your lunch meat and cheese...and stab it with your straw...then squeeze out the meat and cheese worm.
Love notes...oh the love notes...
To: and From: we actually wrote that on the front....and the folding ...oh the art of love note folding....
....Hmmm....what was that fortue teller thing....yes...HERE it that was fun !!
what do you remember from grade school ??
have a happy day
Pin It!

Love the birdie! When I think of Valentines it makes me happy cause Spring can't be so far off. I actually took off all the ornaments on my tree and put a lighted heart I bought last year at Walgreen's in the window. I just didn't want to see Christmas anymore. What I remember from grade school recesses are dodgeball. kickball. double dutch and foursquare. Happy New Year!

OMG, my mom and Nana used to sing this song to me as a kid! I had completely forgotten about it until now. Thanks for a great memory!!!
