Playing around with some pics when we took Ava to Vala's Pumpkin Patch. They had these cut-outs, and I think we've found her calling! She was so tickled when Daddy held her up to look out the peep hole at the rest of us other poor souls who were on the other side!!
Just a simple collage from last weekend, which we (we, being Lindsey and me) spent up in MN with my beautiful little grandbaby, Ava. Omigosh, is she really 14 months old already???
We never really have any "plans," so to speak, when we go a'visitin'. Heck, I'd be happy just to sit and watch her sleep, eat, and play all day! Which, come to think of it, is pretty much exactly what we do! :-)
But we did take our Elmo coloring book and crayons with, and Grammie and Ava joined forces and colored a page together, the results of which are now adorning my refrigerator door. And we pulled out the little yellow rubber ducky out of my purse when it was bath time. And, we took a couple hundred more pictures! LOL! What can I say...when you have such appealing subject matter to photograph...:-)

"Use the everyday reality around you as fuel for the inner world of your imagination and you'll find yourself a general inspiration to all. When hope and belief are applied hands-on to the real world, the inner self can make its mark on the outer and the stuff of dreams coming true becomes your instrument to play. Manifest what you believe and watch what happens!" ~ This was actually my Horoscope for July 13th, 2008, but thought it rather profound, and I'm a big fan of profundity so thought I'd post it in my Quotes! :-)
