I Adore You

This is a photo I came across of Noah when he was about 9 months old.  Look at that toothy smile! I absolutely adore you!

This is another layout made with Studio Calico's November Kit - Handmade and Add On - Thimble.  I hand painted the leaves using 2 different Mister Hueys Spray Inks.

Night Fishing

So, anyone who has been to northern Ontario knows, that come dusk in the summer, watch out for the mosquitoes! They come out in droves!  Unfortunately Clay & Noah came back from fishing in the middle of this!  I got called down to the dock, to take a photo of Noah and his fish, but the mosquitoes were biting so bad, I was jumping and swatting every which way that I was having a heck of a time taking the photo.  Basically, I just started clicking, and hoped for the best!

This layout was made using Studio Calico's November kit - Handmade and Add On - Thimble.  I used Mister Hueys in White to spray the background.  And I used Prima Chalk Ink in Farmers Jeans on the Maya Road Chipboard Banner, then stamped it with may Smash Date Stamp, and covered it in Glossy Accents.

Once again here is another layout using Studio Calico's November Kit - Handmade and Add On Kit - Thimble.  I painted the border with Mister Hueys Bonney Blue and around the Heart with Piglet

Wild & Free

This was such a fun evening....It was June and about 114F with the humidex and our central air died!  Murphy's Law.  So thankfully we had the trailer parked out at the hanger where Clay works.  I packed up the boys and off we went.  The hanger is in the middle of nowhere, so it was nice that the boys could just run  wild & free in the fields!

Summer Days

Noah & I out on the fishing boat this summer........I love summer days!  We were on vacation in Temagami Ontario, approx 10hrs from home.  We had so much fun.  It was so exciting for Noah because daddy taught him how to fish! Noah caught so many fish, he had a blast, and he was so proud to show me that he could do it all on his own! Liam on the other hand was still to small, but he still had lots of fun just going for boat rides!  In this photo we are on the boat heading back from a picnic we had on a remote part Rabbit Lake.  Aunt Sue & Uncle Ken took their boat with Lizzie (the puppy) and we took ours.  I remember this day clearly because Aunt Sue and I were floating out in the lake on our pool noodles while the guys were BBQ lunch, when I kicked my feet up and noticed I had a bunch on tiny leaches between my toes...Eek!!! Enough said!

Good Times

This was a fun afternoon....My dad (aka Papa) showed up with cookies for Noah and 2 slices of pumpkin pie, one for me and one for him.  Those of you who know my youngest son Liam, know that he only eats anyway, back to the story.  The boys were super excited to see Papa, and there was a big "digger truck" (aka toddler talk for excavator) across the street from us working on a busted sewer line, so we sat out in the driveway on the tailgate of our truck so the boys could watch.  Noah sat there eating his cookies, and Papa was getting ready to eat his pumpkin pie, when Liam started to eye it, so Papa gave him a taste....Well that was it, he was hooked.  He sat there and ate 2 pieces of the pie while watching the digger.  This was pure heaven for the boys!  What a fun afternoon.

I used Studio Calico's November Kit - Handmade and Add on - Thimble.  I painted the JBS Font stickers "times" with my Mister Huey's Bonney Blue.

Just 1 Photo Please?

I laugh everytime I see this photo!  Clay took (or should I say "tried" to take) this photo of us while we were out on the boat on during our summer vacation to Temagami Ontario.  All I wanted was 1 nice photo of the boys and I, but do you think they would let that happen? this is what I end up with!

For this layout I used Studio Calico's November kit - Handmade and the Add on Thimble.  I absolutely adore this kit! I killed it in one weekend. 16 layouts and 5 cards!

Liam & Noah @ the Barber Shop

We took the boys for their hair cuts at our local family owned Barber Shop in Kingsville a few weeks ago.  This was Liams 1st haircut!  As you can tell by the photos, he was not to sure about this! Noah was in desperate need of a cut because his mop of curls were just ridiculous, lol! Noah is a pro, he just hopped up in Jim's chair without any hesitation (only because he knew Jim would give him a lollipop and bubble gum!) Tony on the other hand, had a bit of a challenge with Liam!  But when it was all said and done, he did a great job getting his hair cut!
