You Make Me Smile


I have to say I love that the weather has cooled off a bit over the last week.  Normally this crew of four...Marcel, Collin and two of their good friends from down the street are riding bikes, playing house, hanging from the swing set or using their imagination!  On Sunday, they asked if they could bring their DS's outside.  That usually would be a big fat no, but sometimes they need to unwind.  When I looked outside, they were all "connected" playing each other.  I was cracking up at how they lined up the chairs on our rock wall.  Can you tell they are intense trying to win the game?!

And here's another quick one layer card...inspired by the bright, cheery colors at this week's Play Date Cafe!
