Say hello to Sushi

Hello my raviolis.  When I got to work this morning, I had discovered that G-Qam, my little Siamese fighting fish, had passed on.  He was a good fishee and I had him for a few years.  

So I cleaned out his tank.

 The Foo Dogs are keeping watch over the tank.

I went to Walmart and found this little guy and brought him to his new home.  I think I will call him Sushi.

Grandma-ma...did you put the container with Sushi in the water?  I sure did.  When you bring home a fish you should place the bag or container in the water for a few hours so the temperature in the container will match the temperature of the tank. This also allows the fish to relax from all of the jostling they get when moving from one location to another.  Sushi stayed in the container for about three hours.

It is time to let Sushi out of his container and into his new tank.  He loves it.  Sushi swims up and down and hides in the little sea anemone at the bottom of the tank.  It is not a real anemone but a fake one.

Here is a little video of Sushi swimming around his new home.  I think he is very handsome with his brilliant aqua blue colors.

So welcome Sushi...I hope you will swim around a long time in the tank on Grandma-ma's work shelf.

Happy Birthday Kaitlyn and Lili

 This is a very special week for two of my raviolis...both Kaitlyn and Lili are celebrating birthdays this week.  Oh how I wish I could magically appear at your houses with hugs and kisses and cake to celebrate your special day.  Since I can't be there to shower you with love I will dedicate today's post to you with fun birthday cakes for you.

I have shared this photo of this cake before...I like the angles to it and the pretty jewels that dangle around it.  I hope you also have a topsy turvy birthday.

Kaitlyn is the original little princess and so she would be right at home with this princess birthday cake.  I can see you in a pretty princess gown and crown twirling with these Disney princesses at the top of your castle cake.

Lili is our gymnastic star. She works hard to do crazy acrobatic move on all kinds of equipment  She needs a gymnastic birthday cake, don't you agree?

 This cake is because Grandma-ma likes it.  hahahaha.  You know how much I love the sea and this pretty cake makes me want to jump into the ocean with a big slice of this cake.  Don't forget to cut me a piece with the coral on it.
 Here is another pretty gymnastic cake.  I like the way the baker put stars and confetti twirls all around it.

Another pretty princess cake with a Cinderella slipper, a magic wand and a Sleeping Beauty pillow and crown.  All in Kaitlyn's favorite

Have a wonderful birthday week my raviolis and sending you lots of love and kisses.  Grandma-ma

Happy Fourth of July

Wishing our great Country the happiest of birthday's this Fourth of July.

2012 Memorial Day Big Flag Wave on the Beach in Ocean City. We remember!

Wouldn't it be fun to be a part of this giant flag wave on the beach?  Grandma-ma wishes she was there to do this.  Look how beautiful our flag looks against the sand.  

The quote below is for your daddy's who will remember it from one of their favorite movies, " Big Trouble in Little China".  They used to watch it over and over when they were young but as silly as it could be at times, there were some good lessons about friendship and working hard and doing the right thing.  

Here's to the Army and Navy and the battles they have won - here's to America's colors, the colors that never run."..."And may the wings of liberty never lose a feather.

Have a terrific fourth of July.  Love Grandma-ma
