a package arrives!

dad and barbara sent a birthday package to jasper about a week ago and despite some darling pleas (including one memorable “package for me” dance), i held firm!

she had to wait until the day of her party to open it and wait she did 🙂

although that picture captures a pretty pitiful waiter, doesn’t it?

but once she got the go-ahead, she went ahead with enthusiasm!!!

(notice the apron?  it will make several appearances over the next several posts – she likes to wear it it!)

dad and barbara got jasper some great school clothes!!!!  jeans, shirts and a skirt & shirt combo in her birthday colors even!  (pink and chocolate brown – you  must have read my mind, barb!)…

we tried the clothes on, she admired everything and then she played with the princess card!

thanks for some adorable birthday clothes, paw-paw and mimi!

we love you guys and wish we could have given you our hugs in person…


what is she doing?

here are a couple of random photos (just for you, jon!):

oops, looks like our jasper got in trouble about something and is now getting The Hug that comes after…  she does look like a grumpy one, doesn’t she?

pop and arnetta came in for the weekend for jasper lilith’s birthday party (turning 4?  already?  what??!!) and here she is at our favorite thai restaurant opening a pre-birthday bag…

she found a picture of a baby bird from gram’s house and a picture of two of her cousins, juliet and pierce…  but her favorite find in the bag?  an jasper-sized apron!!!

arnetta sewed a little apron from some thai cotton fabric that jasper picked out – now she has an apron like mine 🙂

she had to put it on in the restaurant and when we got home, the first thing that she did was put her apron up with mine 🙂

and i assure you, the apron has already made several appearances – whether we are cooking or not!

too cute!
