jon points out jasper home-made “charm bracelet” to pop…

it is beads and rubber bands ties around a hair band – she couldn’t get the tying down so she finally just TOLD me what to do…  exactly where she wanted that rubber band she cut in half and then exactly where she wanted that other rubber band as well 🙂

and then called it her “charm bracelet” and wears that thing everywhere.   everywhere.

even her uncle mark gets in on the hugging action!

is there such thing as too much hugging?

(well, yes…  but for this post?  no.)

did i forget to pack something?

as we start the packing for our trip to natchitoches, jasper lilith reminds me of what is most important.
