Black Goo & Other Spiderman Stories...

Ok, so things were pretty quiet this morning so I should have known something was amiss. I am actually getting some sewing done, and my house looks neat & tidy & I'm feeling pretty good. Then I walk into the den & look down at our shi tzu's bed & it is covered in this black goo. What the h*ll! I recognize this substance as something Reilly & his daddy created in their "science experiments". Genghis (the shi tzu) is sitting at the door looking pretty forlorn & is also covered in the "substance". Again, what the h*ll! A sheepish looking Reilly Quinn rounds the corner. I almost again say "what the h*ll" but keep my composure & simply ask, "Why is Genghis covered in goo?". The answer is simple. Genghis was being attacked by a simbiote (sp?) just like Spiderman. Ok again, older cousins are just a plethora of knowledge. What games will he come up with when he is actually watching these movies himself! Almost blew a gasket until I remembered the story on Ambrosia Couture's blog about her sister's run in with a boy who liked to wipe poop on his toys. Ok, counting my small blessings. I also could be this mom:

Yes, counting my blessings.

Lazy Days of Summer - it's officially here!

Although, it has felt like summer for weeks with this HOT weather!

Wanted to share some pics of the kids from our Father's Day BBQ. We had such a great time roasting doggies & marshmellows. The kids loved it.

Here's one of the man of the day himself!

That day Reilly found a toad that became his new "pet" for the day. I actually have a secret pride that my little guy is not afraid of anything. I myself am terrified at the thought of a toad touching me. I hope his fearlessness carries over into the way he will lead his life as an adult....although let's hope recklessness won't come into that. Thinking on it, I better guide him on the difference between the two....... :).

And, yes, you'll notice he's traded Superman in for Spiderman. I have to ensure each night that I have the costume washed and dried for the next morning. He wears it everywhere. Playdates, grocery store, to grandma's. My thinking is that he starts JK in September and will have 20 more years in school conforming so let a 3-yr old have fun. BTW, he is no longer my little Reilly. We must address him as "Spidey" when he is in costume or "Peter Parker" when he is in his jammies at night. Who knows how he knows so much about Spiderman - he's never even seen the movie. Older cousins are a plethora of knowledge! Have a great one!

Two New Sets & A Busy Week!

Was able to get my listing up for the JM Refashion launch along with a new set using some LaZagala I have had for a bit but just couldn't decide what to do with it.

I am very happy with how both sets turned out. Now for a bit of a breather...listed some sample sets...before MiaGrace's debut launch next week. Now to finish some customs in time for us to take Reilly to the Zoo this week.

Peonies in Bloom

My peonies have finally bloomed! They are my absolute favourite flower. I love their delicate, floaty petals not to mention their beautiful fragance. We have about 8 bushes planted around the property so that everywhere you walk you can get a little hint of their fragance while they're in bloom. This bouquet has been picked to place beside my bed....sweet dreams :).
