The Green Bunch said...

Oh the love of sisters! You are a wonderful big sister! And the good old days in the truck with the outfield playing - unforgettable!!!!!!

Nicole said...

I ALWAYS think of you (Val) when I hear that song!! That and Marie Osmond :o)

The Green Bunch said...

So when Donny and Marie have their show in Vegas, maybe we should meet there and go to it!

Nicole said...

It's a date!

Cecily R said...

What a nice sister you are!

And you make waffles in the morning? Geez, if my kids get waffles, I don't make them, I throw them in the toaster. :)

Matt & Laura Edwards: said...

I just learned some new things about you from this post! Nicole, you rock! I hope I can be like you some day. You are so sweet, fun & talented. I would also like to take singing lesson from you someday. Maybe we could be next door neighbors in the future... that would be awesome!

Nicole said...

Ok Cecily - I confess...Yes, they were homemade waffles, BUT I am a little sneaky...I make a ginormous batch every two or three weeks, and then freeze them to re-heat for school mornings. If it weren't for that, they would probably be eating cold cereal every morning!

And Laura - you would be the best neighbor EVER! I want to be like YOU!!

~Savy* said...

YAY! You did it! Mwahahaha. I really do need to come out there, and see the freakin' ocean. Hey! I have an idea, how about you come here, I'll show you the T.V. towers. And when I come there, You show me the ocean! :)
