Can't decide

I love the dandelion in the girls room so much, that I have been thinking about other places to put a cool decal!

The laundry room has a perfect space and I've found some cool sayings, but can't decide which one!

Now, all you blog followers out there - don't bombard me all at once and make my computer crash, but I would like your opinions!

From Inspire Your Walls...

From It's Written on the Wall...

Or Leen The Graphics Queen - where I got the dandelion decal.

I've seen these faces before

Ivan and Hannah played a game together at a park this weekend. Not too long into it, frustration with eachother began and these were the resulting expressions...

It reminded me so much of a series of photos I took almost exactly four years ago...

They made up though...

and this time too!

Another new design

I just finished an order for 75 of these pretty bridal shower invitations and loved the colors and design so much that I decided to create a mock card to add to my shop! Crossing my fingers that others will like it too.

Dear Cake,

Don't take this personally, because its not just you. You just happened to take the best picture in your sparkling white (and very very delicious) frosting and colorful sprinkles.

I have to leave you for a time. I've got to stop sticking my fingers in your frosting where I think no one will see. I have to stop cutting thin slices off "just this once".

But as I said, it's not just you. It's Oreo cookies and Little Debbie snack cakes. It's pistachios and sour cream potato chips. It's corn tortillas with butter. Basically anything that's very. very. bad.

But don't worry...I'll be about 40 days. Our relationship can never be what it was though - what it was becoming.

Summer is on the way dear cake and well, you understand.

So much drama!

What a treat!

Since December, Ivan and Hannah have been participating in a school drama club. In January, they found out their roles for the play...both got great parts...whew!

Last night was the world premiere of The Tainted Twinkie!

Ivan played Chrysler VanHoosen - a jewelry shop owner who kept being robbed. Hannah played Goober the Great - the bad guy who tainted twinkies so that Mr. VanHoosen's shop assistant would steal jewels for her.

It was awesome - seriously funny! Trust me - there is no stage fright between these two!

Where are the jewels?

Goober the Great - a close up

"Biscuits and Gravy!!! I've been robbed!"

Red eyes left in at Hannah's request (insert evil laugh here)

Something new...

...coming to my shop soon!

Meet Buddy

This is Buddy.
He will turn 8 this year in July.
Given by Meema and Papa for Ivan's first birthday.
Appropriately named by Hannah.
Loved to bits by Ivan.

Well, he's not been loved to bits yet, but I noticed yesterday, as his neck hung limply over the back of the chair, that he is well on his way. When at home, Ivan is not often without Buddy. He's big enough to be an extra pillow while watching a movie, but small enough to be carted around without much effort. As you can see, it was love at first bite...I mean sight.

A New Hobby

Hannah is getting interested in photography. I think that's awesome and I hope we can cultivate her interest. I'm going to look at some photography sites for kids on the internet and watch for any local classes. The pictures that she took of Jenelle turned out great! She's out right now taking pictures in our yard. Sadly, there's not a lot of scenery at this time of year and the cat's in hiding!

Blowin' in the wind

The girls have been patient when it comes to room decor.

Hannah and I saw this cute dandelion vinyl design in this awesome Etsy shop called Leen the Graphics Queen months ago and I finally ordered it. The dandelion seeds float off around their mirror and even over their window trim. So cute!!

I can't wait for them to come home from school!

13 years

All because two people fell in love...

Let's get started!

Thought this would be a great way to share with family and friends. I'd like to see if blogging will get me to put my thoughts and some pictures down, as pen and paper haven't been working out to well for me lately.

So to start us all off, let's look at some crazy teeth!

Scary huh? Well, they came from here!

And she was brave. And she is proud. And she is $2 richer. I know, I would have demanded a lot more too...
