I'm At It Again

Hello, Dear Ones! I know I've not been very good here lately at posting.
We took a little two day trip and carried Mr. Precious' Ipad along. 
I don't like that Ipad. It doesn't do what I want it to do.
So...I'm going to try and butter you up right now and give you some carrot cake.
Looks pretty yummy, doesn't it?

 What can I say...thank you, either Duncan Hines or Betty Crocker, don't remember, and a nice little tub of cream cheese icing. 
I promise this is as good as 'made from scratch'. 
Now will you stay with me? :)

When we were visiting our little granddaughter, Carter, I learned about a little program on Net Flix called "Yo Gabba Gabba". Well, Carter loves the snot out of it and asks to see it often.
I was looking around on line and some smart one had made little finger puppets of the little characters from Yo Gabba. 
I've been having so much fun making felt ornaments for Carter's seasonal tree so I thought I would just have to copy theses little finger puppets for her. 
I can usually copy by looking and so I did.
I'm so talented like that you know! :)

 The fuzzy felt characters finger puppets. Aren't they the silliest things?
Well, I'll just do about anything for my little Carter.
I poked these in the mail for her.

 Here she sits looking at the little Yo Gabba Gabbas.
Look how her little hair is growing! :) 
Let me tell you, some of those pieces were teeny weeny. 
May have to up my eyeglass prescription! :)

 Carter loved her little finger puppets.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Cuddly Toy

You're not the only cuddly toy
that was ever enjoyed
by any boy

You're not the only choo choo train
that was left out in the rain
the day after Santa

You're not the only charity light
that was left in the night
who gave up without a
fight, yeah

You're not the only cuddly toy
that was ever enjoyed
by any boy

You're not the kind of girl to tell your mother
the kind of company you keep
I never
told you that I'd love no other
you must have dreamed it in your sleep, bop bop

You're not the only cuddly toy
that was ever enjoyed 
by any boy
