Lilly has shared some deep thoughts with our friend Mary...
|Wow...I barely remember those days...when Lilly would let me dress her up in a velvet Christmas dress...|
|Finally, I said, "say it like a name, hon. Mary Mekko."And that fixed it for her...TOTALLY.|
|As we ran through the store, Lilly would spot something like this and say, HERE SHE IS, GRANDMA...|
|I FOUND MARY MEKKO..!!|
|We called Mary Mulari from Target to make sure we had the right stuff...|
|We cold never actually BE in town and not stop at a thrift store...|
|Here, things are much more reasonably priced. This big guy could be had for just $2.88...|
Lilly found him, and immediately said, "TAKE A PICTURE FOR MARY FONS, GRANDMA!!"
|During our trip to Chicago, Lilly's new friend, Mary Fons, introduced her to her sock money mascot...Pendennis...|
|OF COURSE, I took the picture!!|
Surprised by her choice of words, I said, "what do you mean?..."
Then, with a broad smile, she said, "Mary Mulari, Mary Mekko and Mary Fons..."
We both laughed...she was SO PLEASED with herself.
