Fun Stuff With Preston and Triston

Last weekend when Preston and Triston were here, I was working on a lesson for my online class Letter Love 201 with Joanne Sharpe.  They did Lesson four with me.

This is Triston's page.
(Triston's middle name is Gage.  He goes by that name in school because several children in his class are named Triston.)

Preston's page.

Preston decided he wanted to play some more so he did the journal page below.
Good job Preston!

These were all done with Zig and Copic markers, Sharpies, and watercolors.  I love making art with my granddudes!

Have a Happy and Smiley Day,

Ryan and Chique's Wedding

I've had so much going on that I forgot to post pictures of Ryan and Chique's wedding which took place December 28th!  Ryan is my sister Linda's step son, and a mighty fine young man!  He is in the Navy and Chique is from the Philippines.  They came to Texas to get married.

Cake time!
It was good too!

I love, love, love Chique's dress.
It's the most gorgeous wedding dress I've ever seen.
Remember the episode of Friends when Monica, Rachel, and Phoebe are sitting around in wedding dresses--just because?  Well, I so want to do that with this dress.  Mostly because that's really all I could do with it!    

Unless.. Unless...  

Perhaps I could go to the movies in it?  

Or Shopping at the mall? 
Oh, how lovely would I look wandering the mall? 

How about getting groceries at Walmart? 
(It would certainly spice up that task!) 

I could visit Mom at the nursing home! 

If I put an apron over it, 
I could wear it while I'm making art? 

How about sporting it
when we travel in our RV?  

I guess the possibilities are endless after all!

Now--where can I get a dress like that?

Smile On,
