Can't help but smile...



when you see these two acting silly the way they do! This poor ball house was a gift for Kyle a couple of years ago and that thing and been through the ringer and is getting a little sad looking since the kids not only play in it, but on it as well. They've decided that it's fun to get one of them in it and then one on the outside to fall on top of the kid in it. Fine when it's Kyle inside, but worrying when it's Nathan!

I did do a layout last night, but it's part of another game of layout tag at Scrapshotz, so I'll have to wait until everyone is finished to post mine!

I'll post more about my wonderful visit with my friends from Australia when I get the pictures uploaded!

Today's 2Peas Blogger Challenge: Describe a childhood Christmas/holiday.
I'll never forget the Christmas that Tracy and I got a 3 story Barbie dollhouse/apartment thing. Our rooms were upstairs and we had to wait up there until mum and dad were ready to go down. Tracy and I were more than ready and when we were told it was OK, we went shooting down the stairs and that Barbie house was the first thing we saw - elevator and all! I was in Barbie heaven! Now I think my dad was glad we liked it because I can only imagine how long it took him to put that thing together!!

Better be off for now since my niece will be here any minute! Have a great day!
Cheers,
Colleen

Colleen, I had a chuckle picturing your boys playing one in the ball pit and one falling on it. Kids are too funny. Hope you are having a great day! :)
