Thanks a Latte {and my guys!}

 

Hello my friends...popping in to share some pictures of my boys from this weekend before I get to my card.  I took advantage of the nice fall weather to head down to the Loveland Bike Trail.  My goal was to get a picture of at least the boys for our Christmas card.  We got extra lucky that a friend and his son were going for a bike ride and I got them to get a picture of the whole family.  I'll be sharing the family picture on Christmas day!  

So here goes...
{Ryan 16}

{Jonathon...almost 13...I think he has grown about 6 inches in the last year!}

{Collin...10 years old...my shy guy}


 {There's that adorable smile!}


{Marcel...8...Mr. Outgoing}


{His reaction when I asked him if his friend Chloe is his girlfriend!}

Yes...I know I'm biased, but I think they are pretty darn handsome!

And if you've hung with me this long, here's a card for the current CASE this Sketch challenge.  I pulled out my new Verve to make this card from Erin. Erin is always so generous and has sent me goodies in the past.  I'm popping a few PTI dies to her and of course, I had to indulge her coffee habit!  She's a coffee girl...I'm a diet coke girl...she likes red wine...I like white.  One of these days here's hoping we get to share any of these types of drinks together!

Such beautiful photos, Lynn! Great job! LOVE how you've captured their personalities! And your card is too cute! Loving those little to-go cups to bits! I'm a diet coke, white wine girl myself; although, this pregnant mommy is missing my loves deeply.

Lynn, what a handsome bunch! I particularly loved the "shy" picture and Marcel's reaction to your question...priceless. And of course your card is wonderful!
