So I don't often talk about Chris here but let's face it, he's a teenager and he's boring. Haha. He spends most of his time in his room and we only see him when there's food involved, so there's not much 'blog worthy' things that he does.
But occassionally he surfaces and provides entertainment:
I was watering my flower beds one day b/c we'd had a nasty dry spell and the kids had followed me outside. They're running back and forth in the front yard, playing hide and seek, when an evil moment hit me.
I wait until McKayla is within reach and spray her with the hose and then turn to Chris and get him too. Of course, they loved it and kept coming back and were eventually soaked.
At one point, Chris came up right next to me, taunting me and so I sprayed him full force. But then he reaches out, quickly grabs the water hose and overpowers me and proceeds to drench me.
Zoe (who hasn't been introduced properly yet*) has many sleeping positions. Mostly ON or at the very least touching one of us. If there's a lap, you better believe she'll be in it. If a lap isn't available, then she makes due with wherever she can but still has to be in close proximity of you.
Dog down! Head down to be exact. LOL
Doesn't look comfy to me but I guess being nosey trumps comfort LOL
Sacked out cold like she had a rough night haha
Pouting b/c she can't be in my lap while I'm eating.
"Look at how cute I am?! You know you love me!"
Best seat in the house
(* Working on a proper introductory post for Ms. Zoe, which will be found at the top under "My Critters Past and present".)
Occasionally, I get the urge to 'create' something. Actually, that urge hits quite often but I generally ignore it b/c A) what I want to create and what I actually make are never the same and/or B) materials cost more than I want to spend.
But sometimes I'll run across a DIY tutorial on FB or Pinterest and think 'Hey, that's something even *I* can do!'
One such tutorial was making wipes using a paper towel roll cut in half, vinegar, rubbing alcohol, water and essential oils and then placing the whole thing in a coffee can. Suh-weet! (That's the purple one on the left saying "You Make It? You Clean It."
Next in the pic is a Lysol Wipes container that now stores those annoying plastic bags that take up so much room and finally the black on the right is my own "creation" (meaning I didn't steal this idea from FB or Pinterest but thought of it on my own) that stores the coffee filters.
