Always Have A Dream

Always have a dream
Forget about the days when its been cloudy,
but don't forget your hours in the sun.
Forget about the times you've been defeated,
but don't forget the victories you've won.
Forget about mistakes that you can't change now,
but don't forget the lessons that you've learnt.
Forget about misfortunes you encounter,
but don't forget the times you luck has turned.
Forget about the days when you've been lonely,
but don't forget the friendly smiles you've seen.
Forget about the plans that didn't seem to work out right,
but don't forget to always have a dream.

Way Back When-sday

I couldn't help but think back about an incident with Cody & his Thomas Trains. At first we were upset, then couldn't help but laugh.

A Thomas the Tank Engine - $12.99
Bottle of baby powder - $3.79
A child wanting to make it snow on his trains in his room..........
A lot of cleaning up!!
A child laughing about it because he thinks it's great, and he knows he's not the one who is going to be cleaning it up.............. Priceless
Note: It took us 2 days to clean the powder off everything in his room!!!!
But it was a great memory!! And also note the sweeper in the right bottom corner??
Play along with Way Back When-sday.
Have a great day!!

OMG! How did we not ever hear about that one? TOOO funny! Did I tell you that Jacob & Sarah each have their own train now? They got them (free) from TRU a few weekends ago. Jacob played with his constantly for several days...he kept saying "Choo Choo! All Aboard!" and driving it all over the house. so cute!
