Joys in Life

Two of the many joys in my life.......

On Monday, I got to play with my niece Raegan and nephew Wyatt all day. We played with toys, watched 101 Dalmations, had peanut butter and jelly's, colored with chalk on the sidewalk, played at the park, and made homemade playdough. I don't think it could have been a better day. I absolutely LOVE these two kids and I had such a great day with them!

Raegan wanted to play with my phones (personal and work) all day. She kept pretending to be talking to Kayla Starr, my other niece.
I think Wyatt should win a happy baby contest.
He is never sad, he just smiles all day and laughs.

If you haven't tried homemade playdough, I think you should try it. Raegan and I had so much fun mixing it up and adding die to each pile so we could make our own colors.
Salt Play Dough
2 cups flour
2 cups water
1 cup salt
4 Tbls. oil
4 tsp. cream of tartar
Heat until blended and thickened. Take off heat. Break into sections and add food coloring.
