When I Grow Up

"I hope when I grow up I'm not a man"... my four year old daughter said as she lay in bed last night. We of course assured her that this was one thing we could assure her she need not fret over.
The same night at dinner my six year old announced that she wanted an indoor pet.... a Venus fly trap! Are my girls great or what. They keep life interesting for sure.

My Hubby and Me

We joked when we were dating that he robbed the cradle and I robbed the grave! My hubby is a hoot.
And he's sweet enough to not say anything when he sees a new ding on my car these days.... or he's just used to it. Who knew that curb was there anyway!!

Me at 5

In response to my buddy Sunnynole at, a picture of me at the age of five. 1980 to be exact. Check out that hair. It was so long it actually almost pulled it strait. Maybe I should try that again. Anyway. There it is Sunnynole.
If anyone has advice, we're intending on setting up a website and having the Turkish Cook Book be a download purchase. Any tips on that setup is welcome from my readers.

A Turkish Cook Book

My mother-in-law and I are in the process of creating a Turkish Cook Book. It will feature food that her family has been making for generations. This is just a teaser of what will be in it. Yummy......

an old toy

We spent a night drawing. Thinking of Amy's drawings of lego figures, I picked up a toy from way back and started painting.

the view on my way in has changed

This is a lovely pond that I pass most mornings. There are still bits of the old south that have not been overdeveloped. There will be a Home Depot there next week knowing our community. Anyway, couldn't you just picture some prehistoric something grazing in that fog?

Holly Hobby and a little dust

This past weekend we picked up some of my childhood toys from my mother's house. My girls were thrilled with the Strawberry Shortcake dolls, Cabbage Patch Dolls, and well, a lot of other junk. What a trip down memory lane. Too bad they can't listen to the 45 record books from Disney. I'm going to find a picture of me in 1985 to share with my cmp buddies, most of all to share with sunnynole after seeing hers. I wonder what Amy looked like in 1985? Creativemom, if you're reading, care to share?

a baby and a purse from scrap jeans

We created an oh so cool purse for my six year old. It's too cute. I'll post so. And I got to see my beautiful new niece. Perfection!!! Here's to a long awaited fall. Bring on the beautiful leaves and temps that drop below 80 at least a few times.

Milktoast Intolerant

My six year old announced this morning that her friend at school was not milktoast intolerant after all! How fun to see the world and our language through her eyes.

Fall visits our home and inspires a sketch

Excited about the change in season I quickly decked the house in a bouquet of autumn colors. My girls can feel the tingle of the coming festivities, and have started to plan in their minds what we will do at the local pumpkin patch. #1 on their list... the hay ride, #2 hot chocolate. Hopefully it will actually be cool outside on that day.
The freshly decorated fireplace inspired a sketch last night.
