Potpourri Part One

Remember on Jeopardy when the category was Potpourri?  I never really understood why they would call it that - until I thought about the word.

Potpourri is a jumble of things that come together to make something really nice.  My life is like potpourri right now.  We have so much going on that singularly look dull and mundane but when "jumbled together" make something really nice - our wonderful life.

Take a look at the potpourri we have been creating:

Brody has been working on many of his legos he received over the Christmas break.  It really is great relaxing time for him.  He never ceases to amaze me with how he can build something like this - I certainly couldn't do it!!
Sis's Junior Troop took a tour of our downtown a few weekends ago.  We had lunch at this neighborhood joint.  Bubba enjoyed dancing to his favorite song, "Firework" with all the girls.
Bubba received this fantastic Radio Flyer car for Christmas and he LOVES it!!  It is perfect for indoors and he is on it all the time.  Anyone with a one year old must get this toy!!
we love happy dances in pjs!!


One of the things I look forward to each month is our neighborhood book club.  We affectionately call it Wine Club as to the amount of wine we consume in 2 hours.....

The family is giddy about the upcoming wedding of this sweet couple - my sis-in-law, Ginger and her fiance' Andy.  I took this pic when they were down and I just love it!  We are looking forward to a fun time this summer.

This is just a few of the "snapshots" that go into our potpourri - we have indoor soccer practice, Boy Scouts, Girl Scout Cookie selling, science Fair projects, PTA, and much much more that go into the mix.  I love the potpourri our humble little life can create!!

Great pix of the happy couple and your very happy kiddos. PotPourri is a great way to view the busy-ness.

We love happy dances too! Funny when they just break out into a spaz moment. I love that! I want a club that meets once a month & revolves around wine... that sounds glorious! Great picture of your sis-in-law & her finance.

Happy dances in jammies are the best! We do a lot of that around here ;)

I can't believe how big Bubba is getting!
