It was a half-day of
school for SweetCheek's sisters.
Her older sister, Lulu,
went home with a friend.
SweetCheeks dear little
voice on the phone
asked me if I was
working this day.
I wasn't..
Well, do youh wahnt to
cohme to Stahrbucks fohr
sum coffee er sumthin'?
I sure do!
I am on my way!
When I get there
Ria has her
Vanilla Steamer
and SweetCheeks
has her organic
chocolate milk.
SweetCheeks is shivering
because she took her
sweater off and the
milk is cold...just like the weather.
The girls are sharing
a breakfast sandwich
which is protected by
a pile of swords.
Now I know that looks like
a pile of paper shavings
to you---but those are
Trust me on this....
You can read about WHY
we need swords in Starbucks
We tell SweetCheeks
It makes a mess...
Soon, we look over and
see this~

Well, you know someday SweetCheeks is going to learn to read, so you are going to have to delete this post when that happens. Love the face on Ria. She's so wise beyond her years.

They keep you on your toes that's for sure. Sweet Cheeks always manages to dig herself out of a hole. (I think girls minds work a little quicker than boys when it comes to covering there butts on the spot)

The girls are precious. I think it's cute that she calls the squiggly grass, "swords." A girl can't have too many you know.
