The kids like their new scarves!

And of course I had to have them model for me and my camera :) I tried to pick colors that would go with their winter coats. Cutler, of course, has a MN Vikings jacket!

Derek & Jeni in Aruba! Aren't they adorable?
They brought me a beautiful tote bag from Aruba and a very funny little desk accessory (flip book)! Here's what it says on the back cover:

'This bold and defiant book of affirmations is for mommies on the edge, self-styled divas, and domestic goddesses everywhere. It features full-color advertising images from the 40's, 50's and 60's paired with sly, laugh-out-loud sayings. This sassy little gift book tackles issues of womanhood with daring humor and a healthy dose of bitchiness.'

Here's the page I chose for today :)

There are SO many very funny, but somewhat naughty pages! I'd love to share them all in time ...but be warned. Like I said, some are naughty ;)

Have a great day!

Oh, I just love those sassy ladies! And your family? Works of art, all of have every right to be totally smitten :-)

Tara said...

Classic. My mum gave me a magnet in that style that says 'I don't cook, clean or put icky things near my mouth.' I laughed so much when she gave it to me.

Aren't your grandkids lucky. I'd love one of those scarves! :) x

Your grandchildren are so adorable.

Well gypsy number 12 you will have to leave them for a week to come on our adventure.

I was thinking you could paint us ACEOs as you paint the most beautiful ones.

I have a notepad in my kitchen similar to that at the moment it says " make yourself at home, clean my kitchen" love it lol!!

Hi Darla, Those children are beautiful! I was just catching up with your blog and I saw Nora's comment > LMAO!! What's even cuter is how she thought about it and corrected herself!
I love Sharon and wish I had time to take her class...she is such a calm, wise Lady. I love her accent and her attitude. I can't wait to see pictures from class :)
