So Happy

 
They say that plants make people happy.  DD2 had gotten this little red bucket with dirt & seeds to plant from her friend at the end of school last year.  She was SO excited.  Me, not so much as I am so NOT a plant person.  Anyway, she watered and watched it all summer and she finally got her reward!  The darn thing actually bloomed! SO HAPPY!
Here's another thing that makes her happy - coloring.  Thank you, Aunty Kyoko for the images!  

I've got so many colored images that I was going to toss them, but, the light bulb went on and I'm going to use them to make cards for her friends' birthdays. Now, I'm SO HAPPY!

Like her bangs?   "Fountain" as she calls it.  Trying to grow out bangs are a pain, but, DD2 loves wearing her hair like that.  SO HAPPY! She wants to take her school picture like that...me not so happy!

she is just so adorable! i'm so glad that her plant grew. i'm like you, plants die when i touch them so the rule at my house is "if it grows it grows." hehehe! love her little fountain. i totally understand about growing out bangs. i don't like that stage where it's too long to be bangs, but not long enough to put behind your ear. have a good one!
