Engineer it

It's Sunday and I've wasted most of the morning looking on the internet between Google Reader, email, Pinterest and Facebook.  The sun is shining in that bright Texas way that it does.  Yesterday morning was big storms and a vet visit for this boy.  Poor guy got misunderstood by the vet who thought he was going to bite and put a stronghold on him and made him SCREAM and cry for mercy.  We all know Killer doesn't bite. or hump. Yikes - it makes me cringe just thinking about it.  But he's all healthy at twelve years old and won't be back for another year. 

Last week I found this or this blog and loved the idea of a THREE FOOT by FOUR FOOT photograph on the wall.  I also saw it at another home where it was a child's photo in a den and just stunning.  Oh, and its only $5 at Staples - in B&W only.  So I ordered three!

This is my niece's daughter, Ray-Lynn.  She turned one on New Years and will have fireworks on her birthday for the rest of her life!  Her Mommy went on a Navy amphibious ship in east Africa for six months and both are being very very brave, including her daddy.

These are my sister, Judi's kids - I took this at my house last year when they spent the night.  They are the nicest kids ever, but of course, I'm prejudiced!

And then there's my crew:  Gracie, Killer and Junior.  It took 2 billion outtakes to get 2 good photos but we did,  so they're going to grace the wall at 3' x 4'.  I can't wait to pick them up tomorrow.  I'll probably pick up some styrofoam from Home Depot.

Getting ready for my big trip:  Cairo, London and Aberdeen!  Thanks goodness my brother will watch the pups, although my next door neighbor, Kathy is a champ at it.  Also going to scrap next weekend with some peeps - awesome times ahead.  I can't wait!

I LOVE the picture of your pups! So sweet! It will be stunning as a 3x4' print.
Have a great time on your travels... maybe we'll see each other in an airport somewhere!

Gorgeous baby and I love that photo of your pups. I totally understand the million out-takes. I don't think I EVER have gotten a good photo of both mine together. Enjoy your scrap weekend. We need to get together soon.
