  3. You are so creative, Mimi!! It's so cute.

    I just read about a typhoon somewhere in the Philippines on Friday. I hope that since you posted this on Friday, that you are safe! And everyone in your family, too.

  4. Thank you Tina :)
    The typhoon is way down South, far from us. It is so unfortunate that they were not prepared for the worst, and so many died.

  5. I read that they were asleep when it happened. So sad. I looked at a map after I posted this message, and saw it was far south of you. (The news article I read started out "Manila, Philippines"... So I thought at first that it happened there... Then I read the rest of the article.)
