  1. “Naked baby booty” cracked me up! I loooove those too. Is it weird to kiss them? 😉

    I was just explaining today to my girls about crabapples. Like you, I think it’s an odd name for a lovely flower … and my grandma made the best jam from the fruit that fell on our lawn!

      Hannah . . . I sure hope it isn’t! 😉 My grandma had crabapples, too! It’s my favorite tree right now. So pretty!

    I’m here from Ann’s – just took a while to get here :)

    And because nothing gets me like a good heartfelt deep Christian song my favorite from your list this week is: *convicting songs on radio

    Thank you for this, and God Bless and Keep you and all of yours.

      Thank you, Craig. I love music, too. Sometimes pushing “play” is an act of warfare, I think! Have a wonderful week.
