saturday night on the lane...

"A" is for...



("A"pple: granny smiths are my favorite;)

and...


(the "A"ngels)

and for...


(yes, he has eyes; they are just closed:b)

ALFONSO!!!
(the one and only...)

last night katherine had alfonso (aka "chico")
over for a play date...
i was lying in my bed (the one with NOTHING underneath it:)
when i looked up to see alfonso who had wandered in
and was checking out the portrait
hanging above the headboard of my bed (wth???)...


("floating heads")

"is that you and katherine???" he asked.
"yes," i replied.
"hmmm..." he hmmmm'ed. "i thought so," he continued.
"katherine calls it 'floating heads'," i added.
"oh, is that why you want a picture of us
in black turtlenecks???" he asked.
"no, my mom wants a picture of katherine
in a black turtleneck;
you don't have to wear one..." i answered and chuckled to myself.
"ah, good," he said then left my bedroom.

saturday night on the lane is usually interesting.
this week was no different:D

katherine calls alfonso a "piece of work".
i agree, lol!!!

love and blessings,
dani xx

We've got a family portrait with the floating heads also...it's one of my favorite family pictures ever. Yours is beautiful too!!

Jan said...

That is so funny Dani. I think it sort of is like floating heads.

I am still so jealous of your empty space underneath your bed. How does it feel? Are you sleeping better?

Now monsters can hide under there though. Just telling you. Monsters, floating heads? Hmm...

dani said...

yes, he is hawnz... lol!!!

dani

dani said...

hi, jan:) i hope you had a great family reunion!!!
it's funny that you mentioned monsters under the bed. in the comments on my last post, i was telling miss lucy that when i was little... to avoid the monster under my bed from grabbing my ankle, i would take a running leap and jump from the door leading into my bedroom into my bed. HA!!! i told her michael jordan had nothing on me:b
love,
dani
