LO #3

My third LO using the Junkitz kit has gone up on A Spoonful of Sprinkles today. When doing DT work, I try to vary the themes of my LOs a bit... not everyone wants to see my kids on every LO do they.... LOL!!! So this one is about Rob and my Dad trying to fly a huge Nemo kite on a day when there was no wind!!! The chipboard tags were all patterned, and autumnal themed, which didn't really go with the photos. I stuck them to the LO and painted over them, which I think works quite well. I may stamp or doodle some more over the tags... I haven't decided yet, one of those LOs that needs putting away for a while and looking at again with fresh eyes iykwim.
HS:MS
The prompt for today is 'snooze'. I could go upstairs and take a piccie of Harry or Freya who are both having their mid morning nap, but I don't want to run the risk of waking them just yet... so the only other option is J Bear... our fluffy puff westie who is desperate for a haircut. He spends most of his day on the sofa snoozing... oh to have a dog's life eh? Tonight I am going to do my A & B pages for the A-Z journal... already behind, how bad am I!!! It's not that I have lost interest before we even started, I just could not think what to do for a. After a conversation with Oliver last week, inspiration struck so I will get it done tonight and be back with piccies.
Today's smile came tonight at tea time. I cooked garlic chicken on skewers (often the only way to get Oliver to eat meat is to stick it on a stick). When I put his plate in front of him he asked what it was, so I said chicken on a stick. When Rob sat down Oliver told him that he had chick dick on a stick. Obviously this was a totally innocent comment... I think!!! At school they have been talking about rhyming words, so he was just putting his knowledge into practice.... but as adults this made us giggle, the more we giggled the more Oliver repeated it... I just hope he doesn't tell them at school tomorrow what he had for his tea... LOL!!!
As promised I have updated yesterday's post with my smile piccie :)

Awww he's a cutie and a lot whiter than my white dog who is cow pooh stained at the moment! Beautiful LO, the colours are yummy. Like the smile a day idea too. I'm sure you would love geocaching we only started this year and we are hooked already it's great fun and anything that gets them outside has got to be good. x
