"That's not a mouse...."
Template change again. Just because I've moved away from the pink doesn't mean that I'm backing down on my support of breast cancer awareness. It just means that I really REALLY don't like coming to my blog and seeing that color every day. How lame am I?? Besides, I still have 4 Halloween banners that I haven't used yet ;)
Baby Girl loves her mini magna doodle. She is always bringing it to us and asking us to draw things. The other day she took it to hubby and asked him to draw a mouse. He drew a very realistic looking mouse (I wish I had been quick enough with the camera...). Baby Girl looked at it and said, "That's not a mouse! That's a poodle!" I laughed and laughed and then drew her a mouse. Big ears, tiny nose, plump round body. She grabbed the magna doodle, found Hubby and said, "THAT'S a mouse Dad!"
I'm so glad I have kids... they keep me on my toes, fill my life with unexpected giggles, and who doesn't love those rare moments where they think you're the best thing in the world?

Hmm. I could use more of those moments.

And I LIKE this banner! Where did you find the graphic for the headstone? That's one I'd like to snag...

Your husband sounds like he's as artistic as me. You don't want me on your team for Pictionary (except I'm a pretty good guesser!!!)

I always love your banners!

Jessica said...

HAHAHA! Too funny, sometimes I get into compitition with hubby about who the kids think is better at something. I love it when I win!!!

I like the new template and your new profile picture, too cute!

Holly said...

They're so funny sometimes, aren't they?

Mandy & Ken Abbott said...

Those moments are definately the best! Kids seem to "know it all!" I know when I was younger I did... not I know for a fact i don't know it all... my girls remind me when I am wrong!

Great template!

Guess what? Your Goodmail is actually IN THE MAIL...

no just packaged up and on my counter sitting there for the last three week......

But.......IN THE MAIL!

The whole trach thing has just really kicked my butt. But I'm working on getting my groove back.

Amber said...

SOOOOOOOO SWEET! Your cute moment. Not pink. :-)

Kimberly said...

Looooove the background! And I really hope I get to meet both you AND your kids some day. What a doll!

diana said...

you both must be artistic. my drawing of a mouse would look like an alien or something. actually, i would just draw a computer mouse =]

Tonya said...

I love the spooky new look! Someone needs to teach me how to do that one of these days.

Baby girl sounds like my kind of gal!! LOL

I love those little moments where your child makes you feel like a hero because you can tie your own shoes or something silly like that.

Love the template! I wish I were as talented as you . But I'm getting lots of practice right now, so maybe someday I will be!
Where do you find your banners? Do you make them?

Hi Melissa, this is my first time on your blog and I saw you said my name.
I'm like those creepy urban legends that once you say the weirdo's name you make them appear before you so here I am.
I came with a little ditty... not dedicated to anyone cuz if I were to dedicate it, it would have to say "my boy".

♪ ♫ ♥I've got sunshine ☼ on a cloudy day... something something month of May♥...♪ ♫

♫♪♥ What can make me feel this way? MY GIRL, my girl, MY GIRL! Talking 'bout my giiiiirl!! ♥♫♪

[taking a bow] Thank you!

Mine are still at the age that buying them a dollar hamburger and Frosty at Wendy's buys eternal gratitude and love.
