A few random shots....

I went with my sister to buy a new camera today. This is one of the photos I took while I was helping her figure out how it worked.

Lil' V asleep in the car.

The cute boy insists on doing his doody with the lid up. I dunno why. But anyway, while he was doing his bizniz, I went to the other room to get something, and when I came back he had dozed off. It had been a long day for him. I'm surprised he didn't fall in.

The boy child and the man child made newspaper hats one night. How crafty my little men are.

This kid is addicted to his Spongebob sippy cup.

Some cute drawings by our little artist.

He told me this is a cow.

And this is a bee.

The Ballad of El Goodo

by Big Star

Years ago, my heart was set to live
But I've been trying hard against unbelievable odds
It gets so hard in times like now to hold on
But guns they wait to be stuck by, at my side is God
And there ain't no one goin' to turn me 'round
Ain't no one goin' to turn me 'round
There’s people round who’ll tell you that they know
And places where to send you, and it's easy to go
They'll zip you up and dress you down and stand you in a row
But you know you don't have to, you can just say no
I've been built up and trusted, broke down and busted
But they'll get theirs and we’ll get ours

if you can just hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on
Years ago my heart was set to live
and I've been trying hard against strong odds
It gets so hard in times like now to hold on
Well, I'll fall if I don't fight, and at my side is God

Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on

Drawings and Funny Faces

Vessel got this magnetic drawing board 2 years ago as an Easter gift. It has seen it's better days, but Vessel still loves playing with it and taking it with him on big trips or to church. Here are some recent drawings from the boy child.

This person complete with arms, legs, ginormous ears, and a belly button.

I'm not sure exactly what these are supposed to be (my guess is elephants) but whatever they are, my kid did an awesome job drawing them.

Vessel said this guy had "spider hair."

"Triangle man, triangle man, triangle man hates person man, they have a fight, triangle wins, triangle man"

Some shots Mike took of Vessel's funny faces on our drive home from Canada.


A couple of weeks ago we went bowling with some friends of ours. It was Vessel's first time and he was pretty excited. Those little bowling shoes were so friggin' adorable, I just had to get a picture!

I thought it was a hoot watching lil' V attempt to get the ball down the lane. First try the ball went so slow that I think it barely nicked one of the side pins, but none of them fell down. Eventually we had to get the bumpers up and a ramp for the kids to get the ball going at a decent speed.

In case you were wondering, I'm the crazy mom with the double chin laughing her head off.

Daddy helped Vessel get the ball onto the ramp and all lined up to hit the pins!

So, if you ever want to have a really fun/funny time, just take your kids bowling! Whoooo!
