Let's Hear it For the Boys!

Well since it's been a FOREVER since I blogged...I miss my Mommy terribly and hadn't seen or talked to her since last Monday. Until she did call finally today and I chatted with her for a minute. Sounds like she is on her way to recovering, but is suffering a few side effects that will pass. She sounds a little blue and I'm thinking of taking a quick day trip in the next couple days to hopefully brighten her day (and mine!) One question I remembered to ask was about her blood levels, and they have taken a big jump UP! I can't wait to see her and give her a big squeezy hug!

Plenty happened last week that is all totally not on the top of my mind right now. I've mostly been brooding about not being able to check in on Mom all the time. Work was fine. I got all the month-end stuff done and got the supply order (my favourite part of month-end...geek!)

I wanted this post to be a bit about Carter and Cooper. To tell a little of what they're up to lately. Carter is becoming quite the wordsmith and can read many words. He's getting a little less shy with singing songs too, and is learning quite a few nursery rhymes. Cooper is his own kind of wordsmith...he can seriously say ANYTHING. And in full, very coherent sentences...even multi-syllable words! So I'm trying to watch my mouth around him because he's a little parrot! And he remembers things from day to day...up to days later! My boys are really growing up! So damn smart.

I've done a little scrapping lately; here are a couple new layouts:

Here is Cooper enjoying an orange *his* way!

Stapled Tag from Foxy Lady kit (Peppermint Creative) - darkened a bit
Stars overlay from Flergs newsletter freebie
Background papers (blended) from Amanda Stevens'
Celebrate 2008 kit and Theresa Hernandez' Halloween Eerie kit

So tomorrow Carter has another swim birthday party to attend. This time I'm going to shave my legs and join him in the pool. I hope everyone wears sunglasses so they won't be blinded by my pasty white skin.

Edited to add:
I must mention some very blog-worthy food...we had Chris's Dad and Grandpa over for supper today. Chris actually brought home some fish from his fishing trip yesterday, so we had fresh pan-fried walleye, homemade (deep-fried of course) French-fries, fresh coleslaw, peaches'n'cream corn, and a veggie/pasta mix. Totally delish! I cut up some fresh strawberries for dessert and served them with some yummy cream cheese fruit dip (that I didn't make). We had a good visit. Dad stopped by later (he had a previous dinner invitation or I'm sure he'd have joined us too!) Carter and Cooper really chowed down; I guess Chris has to bring fish home more often! :)

Ahhhhhh! This is the kind of blog post we've been missing all these weeks/months!!!

I love the layouts. The one of Cooper & the orange is hilarious!

We've been doing some serious maintenance on the laptop--which is why I have gone underground for so long. When it's done, we'll catch up on HELLO!

Miss you!!!

These are awesome pages, Melly! But, dude! Where did you get the Eerie paper? I haven't had that up anywhere for AGES!
