Here's Bekah, my little flutterbudgetfairydiddle. She has personality by the gallon. She also has "pinkeye." And a dirth of teeth. She has lost 6 teeth in the past month! That's what happens when you are 7 years old. Most of us call her Boo, Joe gets to call her Becky- but nobody else is allowed to do that. He dotes on her. She is always by my side, jabbering away. She loves to color and draw pictures, and play with her "dollies." Cooking is one of her favorite things to do. Boo and Eva are best friends and they do everything together. Preparing a feast without Eva wasn't easy on her- the entire time we were out shopping for her feast Boo is talking a mile a minute about what Eva would like and she even bought Eva a present with her own money. She doesn't like people to stare at her and has been known to burst into tears if they do. She is, just a touch, shy.
My stomach is still aching from her feast. It was sooo good. Perfect for 6 growing young men, but maybe a bit heavy for their old Mom. She had a Xmas theme. Her table was set with blue lights and a stem of a poinsetta with had mysteriously fallen from my plant. I suspect the boys with their Nerf guns. She bought each child a chocolate santy and even put a bow on his head. There were sugar cookies with hot "toto" for an appetizer. Boo served up mashed potatoes with gravy and grilled cheese sandwiches. Joe says, "Wow. Starch city." The guys used their sandwiches as spoons and I tried it and it was really quite tasty that way. She had bug juice to drink- blue koolaid with gummy worms. Her "zert" was strawberry shortcake- thanks to Sara Lee. All in all, it was an incredible feast.
