Back At Blogging- A Playhouse and A Poem!

Well, I made a promise to my friend,
that I would start blogging today or tomorrow.
I got an ultimatum from him.  
I think his words were
"You BETTER start blogging".
Whew- like he is Louisana mafia or something~

So,
Even though I have projects up the kazoo
that I am trying to catch up on
I will do a "little" post today.
A VERY little post.

This has to be the most lit up playhouse
I have ever seen.

My son wrapped it with lights and
sent CJK out to say some
"magic words".
We are BIG on magic words around here.

So, as CJK got close to the playhouse
he said, 
"ABRACADABRA"
and POOF the lights came on!

Can you see the city lights in the background?

CJK about fell over laughing.
Here is the moment of LIGHT 'EM UP.
And here he is going inside.
My son said he could NOT get him out of there.

Ummm...I am NO GENIUS...
but maybe he could have
TURNED OFF THE LIGHTS....
but then what does Nana know?

I'll be around later-
And the poem?
Here you go!.

I have a dining room update to show you
AND a mini-master bedroom redo.

I'll be back- you know I will.
Good enough, Ron?

  12. That was a wonderful idea to light the playhouse and turning the lights on only after her said the magic words was so sweet. I loved the mug, too. Have a great week... :)

  15. Welcome back, Diana! Ron was right, we "missed you and your wit"! What an adorable playhouse; I love the lights! I can't wait to see your projects! So happy to see you posting again!

  16. The magically lit play house!!! Just precious.

    She is back!!!!!!!!

    Hooray!!!!

    But she had better moderate her wild I-will-do-it-all-ness! Or I will "TAKE MY EARRINGS OFF!" -giggles-

    That's a Southern lady saying, which I just learned, in Blog Land. Never heard it before, but from the context in which it was said, it means SHE MEANS BUSINESS! -gigggles-

    So... Nana Diana must moderate her activities, or "Bossy Tessa~" with TAKE HER EARRINGS OFF!!!!!

    -chuckle- Arn't ya' skeeeeered?????? >,-)

  17. Geez Diana I think that playhouse could be seen by the nasa satellite, lol. So happy you are back!

  18. Oh! I love it, Diana! What an exciting playhouse!

  19. Technology is not my friend this morning! The laptop has let me down, and now the iPad sends my comments before I'm done! Good grief! I needed to say that the poem on that mug is about my speed this morning.:-) Have a marvelous Monday! xo Nellie

  26. Cute! Love the lights:) and the little boy! Honey today is a coffee kind of day here and I'm drinking a sprite zero. What's wrong with me! I dont' have any coffee and it's cold to go out. Have a great day.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Can't wait to see your updates and Christmas decor! ;) Hurry up! :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. The near rhyme on that poem is quite something! LOL! What a great playhouse. You may know how to get him to come home again, but his daddy isn't willing to scar his son for life.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Yes! I'm happy to see that I am not the only one shamed into updating their blog...when they have a gazillion million things they must do! I'm always happy to see you, though!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Awwww......CJK has his very own little Christmas house. That's so adorable.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Adorable and magical! xoxo My daughter had a playhouse that we use to put lights on too!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Love the lights on the little house! My boys used to have a log cabin in the backyard and we'd string lights on it at Christmas time too. Such sweet memories! Love the mug too!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Such a pretty playhouse. Wish I had had one when I was a kid. Love the poem. Did you write it yourself?

    ReplyDelete
  34. Hi Diana, love the lights on the little house. How magical for CJK. I am sure he will remember this forever.
    Love that mug too. Looking forward to your dining room update.

    Blogger is glitching again and many have word verification going on today even when not turning it on. I think it is on mine too but I've been ignoring it and comments are going through anyway.

    Have a great evening.
    Hugs

  39. Hi Diana, Firstly I love the playhouse lit up-so festive. So glad that Ron got on your case about blogging-I realize this is such a busy time, but girl you are missed along with your zany sense of humor. This week i get a root canal-oh how fun and next week I have to have blood work done and then see my GP-praying my liver numbers return to normal and then I won't have to see him every 3 mos. Hope you get everything done you need to do-miss you girl.
    Hugs, Noreen

  40. That playhouse!!! What a dream.

    What do Nana's know? Just about everything. I'm sooooooo glad to see you back. I missed you! That's my poem about 5:30 in the morning.

  43. That lit up playhouse needs to be out front through the holidays! So cute!

    ReplyDelete
  44. LOVE the enchanted little Christmas house! And so glad you're back - but still, please put yourself first - sometimes that means stepping back from what everybody ELSE is demanding from you! But then, of course, you are "Little Miss Popular" and there's lots more pressure on you than the rest of us! :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Well, that is quite the lit up cottage, I'll say! Looks like lots of fun in the near future! Take care! Blessings, Cindy

    ReplyDelete
  46. The cottage is so neat, Diana! I bet your grandson was surprised when all those lights came on! How fun:)

    ReplyDelete
  47. Everyone needs magic words. The little cottage is adorable.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Oh, dear girl!! I thought I had neglected you (and many others) with my bad hands and crazy life. But you haven't been posting so I don't feel so bad now!!

    Love the cottage! And the cup. Yes, Shut Up is something I say a lot in the morning! ;-)

  49. So thankful for Ron and his "gentle" push to get you back to blogging :) Can I just say that putting Christmas lights on the playhouse is a fabulous idea! I love it...and so does my son :)

    Hugs to you!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I'm glad you're back. That playhouse is fantastic! Wow!

    ReplyDelete
  51. What an adorable idea to light up the playhouse! So cute!

  52. Great coffee poem! Yep, I'd say shutting of the lights would have worked, but you know the younger generation is soooo much smarter than us lol!

  53. Diana, that playhouse is adorable and the little man even more so. He looked like a little elf amongst those huge trees. These are precious pictures. Merry Christmas, Hugs Ginger

  54. I was on the road yesterday and missed this. But - it's too cute. Especially the "What does Nana know?" part. LOL Too funny! It sounds like Nana has what you might call common sense. Something that there is a shortage of right now in the US. Be sure to hand some of that down to all of the grand kids. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  55. Well, that's just about the cutest thing and best surprise I've seen in a long time! Kudos to your son!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Love the little house all lit up...how precious!
