New painting

I just finished my painting I've been working on. I obviously need practice (and training), but it's a good start. I used 3 canvases for one painting.

They will be on display in my living room. Admission is free.

WHY HAVING A TODDLER IS LIKE BEING AT A FRAT PARTY*

I read the funniest blog post recently (http://www.suburbansnapshots.com/2010/06/10-reasons-having-toddler-is-like-being.html):

WHY HAVING A TODDLER IS
LIKE BEING AT A FRAT PARTY*

THURSDAY, JUNE 10, 2010

*That one frat party I've ever been to, having gone to a Very Serious Arts College.

10. There are half-full, brightly-colored plastic cups on the floor in every room. Three are in the bathtub.

9. There's always that one girl, bawling her eyes out in a corner.

8. It's best not to assume that the person closest to you has any control over their digestive function.

7. You sneak off to the bathroom knowing that as soon as you sit down, someone's going to start banging on the door.

6. Probably 80% of the stains on the furniture contain DNA.

5. You've got someone in your face at 3 a.m. looking for a drink.

4. There's definitely going to be a fight.

3. You're not sure whether anything you're doing is right, you just hope it won't get you arrested.

2. There are crumpled-up underpants
everywhere.

1. You wake up wondering exactly how and when the person in bed with you got there.

Rain, rain, go away...it's June for crying out loud!

We had a lazy day today because it rained all afternoon! We had a dance party and wrestled and then I broke out the camera to attempt to get a shot of the boys together. It is quite a challenge to get one where they both look good. (they aren't the Califf or Lakatos children -hehe) This was the best I could do.
Love him!

Love
Nice one of Beck - Here's the caption - "DUH!?"
I think I told them NOT to laugh. :)
Typical - one smiling one with his eyes closed refusing to participate
Riis was trying hard to make the straightest face possible. Success!
This is the perfect example of trying to take a good picture of them together! HA!
Sweet Beck!
World Cup Football was on
