    Had to smile at the painted hands. It used to surprise me that they find the need to cover the backs of their hands with paint as well.

    I love the photo of all eight of your children on the sofa.

    Hi Cheryl… Didn’t you always want green hands? Not so much !!! I was checking my email and turned to discover nearly all of them in the same place at the same time and pretty immobilized by “just woken up fug”!!! Have a fabulous week!!!
