Pool Time

Everyone loves the water, my raviolis.  You, me, family, dogs and elephants!  This cute video of baby elephants enjoying their time in a baby pool is very sweet. Baylor and Tupelo look like they are having lots of fun.

Stay cool as Baylor and Tupelo and have fun in your own pools or slip and slide or hose or sprinkler or super soakers.  Love grandma-ma

Word of the Week Wednesday

It's word of the week Wednesday and today's word is a special one for Aunt Renee but also the Aurora raviolis.  As we look at the word, we will see why.


Such a sweet face!

Kitties attack.  They are playing and having fun together. 

You are probably asking, "Why is the word feline so special?"

Aunt Renee loves the Pink Panther!

Well, aside from the fact that this is Aunt Renee's favorite domestic animal, feline is a word that breaks down into a special spelling.  Let's look at it closer.

Fe Li Ne

Can you guess why the spelling of feline is so special?  I bet the Aurora raviolis can guess. They are studying the periodic table of elements and maybe they can name the three elements that make up a feline or cat.

Fe - Iron
Li - Lithium
Ne - Neon

So does that mean that a cat is made up of two solids and one gas?  Of course not, but it is fun to see how the word "feline" can be matched to the table of elements.  Can you find a word that can do that?  If you can, send it to grandma-ma and I will post it on your blog. 

Grandma-ma loves you and thinks you are all Au.  (do you know what element Au is?)

Tunes for Tuesday

Hello my raviolis.  I think we need to have a song once a week.  So we are going to do "Tunes for Tuesday".  Music and songs are so much fun because they put a smile on our faces and make our feet want to do the happy dance.

You are all amazing raviolis and you light up my life like fireworks.  So what better first tune then Firework by Katie Perry.

Be happy with all that you have around you.  Your friends, your family and pets and all the neat things the world has to offer you. I love watching you grow and learn and laugh and setting off the sparks like real fireworks that you have inside you.  Grandma-ma loves you very much.

Now, lets sing and dance!

Aunt Renee's new cookie jar

Hello my raviolis.  Guess what? Aunt Renee has a new cookie jar. Grandma-ma was on an antique hunt and she came across this really neat cookie jar that is like the I Dream of Jeannie bottle.  It is pink and purple which means I know two raviolis who will like it because those are princess colors.

What a pretty cookie jar.  Aunt Renee saw it and said, "Give it to me."  
So I did. 
Guess what we found inside when we took off the top of the
Jeannie bottle cookie jar?

Was it cookies?

Nope.  It was...did you guess?

It was "Jeannie!"

She was sitting inside the cookie jar on her pretty yellow pillow.  She will watch over any cookies Aunt Renee puts inside it.

Hugs and kisses to all my raviolis.  Love Grandma-ma

Braces update

Hello my raviolis.  Grandma-ma went to the dentist on Friday and had her braces tightened again.  The dentist said that grandma-mas teeth are straightening up very nicely.  In fact, the doctor said grandma-ma's braces may come off in about 9 weeks. 

Grandma-ma has to wear these rubber bands for the next three weeks. They feel funny at times.  I take them out when I eat and put new ones in after I have brushed my teeth.

 Look how straight they have gotten.  This picture is of grandma-ma's teeth on the first day she had her braces put on.

I can't wait to see what they look like when they come off.  When they come off, grandma-ma will have her teeth cleaned and whitened.

I will let you know when they come off.  Have a wonderful day my raviolis.

Word of the Week Wednesday

Hello my Wednesday Ravs.  Today is word of the week Wednesday and today's word is a word you all know:


Yes, moving...not like moving in your seat or moving a glass to the table. It is moving day for the Wayne family in NY.  They are moving from Washingtonville to West Point and will be living on the base. 

How wonderful to be surrounded by "America's castles."

There will be lots of boxes.

There will be lots of packing...but don't pack the dog.

There will be some moving with your own truck and perhaps some friends.

If only it could be this easy to move your house.

A big truck will be involved and it will be loaded with lots of boxes and furniture.  The truck will then drive to the new house and then the movers will unload everything in the new house.  This is tiring work but it will be worth it. Soon everyone will be settled in their new home.

Everyone is tired from the move.

Love you my raviolis and don't forget to use the word "moving" in three sentences today.   Love Grandma-ma
