Splish Splash!

My mom called today and asked if I wanted to bring the boys over after naps for a little time in the swimming pool. Henry lurrrrves him some water play time, and Jack is usually game for just about anything, so I told her we'd be there. Henry was so excited when he realized he was going in his "fwimmin' pool." hehehe.

Here are a few shots from he afternoon. First we have my pale little man sporting his new trunks:

And Grandma trying to stay dry (which, by the way, totally did not work!):

Henry's big thing was filling the bucket and dumping all of the water onto the grass. Good to know he's mastered the whole concept of "bailing" just in case we're ever at sea... heh. Jack's primary interest was pulling and eating grass. It was fantastic (note the sarcastic tone to my voice):

It's a good thing he's so stinkin' cute!

Being that their Grandma (or "Vwamma" as Henry puts it) is the coolest in the whole world, the boys also had the option of this fun little sprinkler. The only thing is that the pool was filled with warm water from the house, and the sprinkler got f-f-freezing cold water straight out of the hose. Henry felt the hose water once, and that was all it took... back in the pool he went. lol. Smart kid!

Here I am foolishly lured in by an innocent, "Mum! Watch me!":

And here we are clearly able to see that Great-Grandma is the smartest woman of the family, as she remained a good ten feet away from all of the action the whole time. :)

As always you can click on any of the pics to see them larger.
I have more stuff to blog, and will hopefully get it up soon! If I don't, feel free to badger me. Oh wait, some of you already do. (*cough*Chris*cough*) hehehehe.

I'll Never Leave You

Hellooooooooo my blogger friends! Oye vey, it has been AGES since I've blogged! Yikes! Things have been a little whack-a-doodle around here, and I haven't stamped in awhile. Actually, that's not entirely true. I actually made this card a few weeks ago but didn't care for it (on kraft paper) and didn't have any Chocolate Chip paper on hand (Seriously people, how does that happen?) so it sat there for awhile until I broke down and hit the Hobby Lobby for a suitable brown stand in.

Despite my absence here in the blogosphere, I need you to know:

bwahahahahahaha!!! Ok, fess up - who gets the joke?! I *know* my girl Lorie is giggling out there somewhere... anyone else??

The main image in this card is from the Sporty Billy set that Pink Cat Studio released in June. This set is awesome! I just love it. :) I colored Billy with my copics, and printed the sentiment on the computer using Mufferaw font (love that font, btw!).

In case you're still wondering about that sentiment, here's a clue (a friend of mine has this set as his profile picture on Facebook and I think it's absolutely hilarious):

Again I say..... BWA HA HA HA HA HA!!!! :)

Ok, I'm done now. Carry on. ;)

P.S. I'm reeeally hoping less time will pass between this and my next post! Don't give up on me!
