snap it 'small'

Greetings all,
Well feeling a whole lot better this Wednesday than last - just a little dry cough left - so joining in Faith Hope & a Whole Lotta Love's Snap It 'small' . . . 
i give you some of my smallest Babushka members . . . 
 my small children are learning about manners at school - my mother used to say "point with your elbow" subtle . . . 
 found this small childhood memory on my keyboard this morning, a chatterbox with messages like "you shall see a pom pom/ rainbow/ shooting star/ death" & "you shall eat a pie."  I love discovering how my children think creatively - from pom poms to death??  Anyone who thinks children are boring are crazy, they are SO entertaining, albeit black comedy!!
 I took this photo of my small family to my 10 year school reunion, hiccup, this year is my 20th!!  Luckily i've kept the same husband from the 5 year reunion, there have been a few divorces.
 This small fellow came along in 2004, he hogged most of the Italian genetics, as he's kept the jaundice olive skin & is brown ALL Winter.
 Finally, our smallest chickens - the Pekin bantams Oboe & Xylophone.
 Size comparison with a cabbage leaf & Rhode Island red adult hen . . . 
 & their same age Spangled Hamburgs friends.  They are the friendliest feathered pom poms in the chicken world.
I love small things that make my world go round, love Posie

Hi, Jennie! Thank you so much for dropping by my little blog! ;D I love your collection of babushkas, your chickens and what an adorable family you've made!

I've never been to a school reunion. I don't know, I always felt too shy and insecure, so I missed them. Now, I'm kinda curious to see some of my old classmates, but I'm thousands of kilometers away from my home country, haha.

Anyway, happy midweek! ;D And thanks again for your warm comment!

Miki.

So lovely to notice the small things around us. Right now my husband is playing his guitar - something I'm never treated to :) I'm telling you, because if I mention it outloud I'm afraid he might stop, hehee

Lovely smalls.

I missed my ten year reunion, I was a day or two off having Bug... I wish I had gone, but I would have been terribly nervous. I hope I have my same husband at my fiftieth reunion!

Don't you love the way kids think? My 2.5 year old the other day said that his baby brother had "Navy Blue eyes" - you've gotta love their application of new things that they have learned (and yes, his eyes are still that slate colour, though they are changing). Your soldier has the most gorgeous smile! No wonder you snapped him up! :) Nice work Posie.

Oh those paper answer things (do they have a name?...) I used to love them, and now you have me sitting wondering if I could remember how to make one.
