Melinda Mea

I loved to memorize Shel Silverstein poems when I was a kid and this project reminds me of little Melinda Mea who ate the monstrous whale. Some days I don't even know if I am going to finish but I do little things and I keep plugging along. If you don't know the story Melinda took little bites and chewed very slow and in 89 years she ate the monsterous whale because she said she would.. I hope that it dosen't take me 89 years to finish. Every day I do something little.

As you can see things are changing

For those of you who don't know the poem.
"Melinda Mae"
Have you heard of tiny Melinda Mae,Who ate a monstrous whale?She thought she could,She said she would,So she started in right at the tail.
And everyone said,"You're much too small,"But that didn't bother Melinda at all,She took little bites and she chewed very slow,Just like a little girl should...
...and in eighty-nine years, she ate that whaleBecause she said she would!!!

We love our Daddy

Dave is an amazing dad. There aren't words to say how proud I am of him and our little family. The kids enjoyed making and giving him his presents this year.

All four of the little monsters

Willow wrote this card for her hero. I couldn't have said it any better.

Phoenix is so proud of his.... present. (I think it's a pencil holder.) We had to replace the erasers on the pencils because he ate the first ones.

We knew he had to have the "MOUNTAIN DUDE" hat and shirt when we saw them. Dave's two favorite things combined Dew and Nascar.
