Gnome Hat found and Returned

Door bell rang! Zinnia was there, all out of breath and very excited. She exclaimed, "look what I found"; as she held up the little Gnome hat. Next she exclaimed, "and I found this letter by the Gnomes door". She read the "letter" to me. Zinnia reads very well. At this point I must confess that I was beginning to think that maybe Zinnia (the older sister) was "playing" me, rather than me "playing" her. But, next she stated. "I know you didn't write this letter, cause I smelled it, and it doesn't smell like your house." "It smells like under our deck".

Next she said, "come with me, I'll show you where I found the hat". We were then joined by her little sister, who was just as excited: but quite upset. Soon I found out why, as she started scolding their big gray cat. She was really worried that their cat would catch and eat the Gnomes. I assured her that any Gnome could outrun any cat, and that she had nothing to worry about. But she kept scolding the cat anyway.

Next, they were off to place the hat next to the Gnome door and write another "letter" to the Gnomes.

I love it! These girls will have such a story to tell when they get older!

I think you better find 2 tiny baskets in a craft store and some tiny easter surprise to leave out for the girls next month. This is just too cute.

Maybe carve 2 tiny bunny pins.

Love this continuing story. I think I'm as excited as the two little gals. Too much fun.

Can't wait til the next episode.

DH walked into my sewing room earlier and invited me to go with him for pizza. Certainly...but after he looks at this. I told him the story beginning in the fall up to today. He walked out smiling from ear to ear.

You've GOT to find or make a pair of teeny tiny felt shoes for the first day that it is warm enough to go barefoot!

Oh watch out that Zinnia sounds like a smart one... Who would think a 6 year old would think to smell the letter??? I love reading about the adventures.... I just read the part about the computer and it must be an Apple he cracked up... He said Kids are so smart now a days, where would this world be with out children they are so much fun... That from a Papa of 6 grandkids from 8 to 2...

This is so fun, thanks for sharing this with us, Tom. I can't wait to hear what happens next. You're giving your readers just as much fun as the girls. But you are going to have to stay on your "gnome" toes to keep up with these two little smarties.
