D was taking a nap Sunday afternoon...and the littlest pets decided to take one with him.

More Photobooth Fun.

I had my computer out, and Gus Gus decided it was time to play "take pictures" again.  So we did.  And Cormac joined in on the fun, as well.

Beer and Chicken Nuggets

Playing "car" with Gus, and we're apparently going to "Old McDonald's" (McDonald's) to get "drinks and stuff."  

He asked me, "Do you want apple juice with your food?"  
Me: "No, I want beer."  
Gus: "They don't have beer at Old McDonald's."  
Me: "But that's what I want to drink."  
Gus:  "With your chicken nuggets?"  
Me: "Yes, with my chicken nuggets." 
Gus: "Then we'll have to go to the beer and chicken nugget store instead."

South Carolina Visit: Day 1

So I'm currently in South Carolina visiting Becky and her family, and the last time I came, Gus said so many funny things, I couldn't remember them all, so I decided to blog while I was here instead of waiting until I got home (I mean, my computer is here...for thesis work, but whatever...).

On the car ride from the airport to their house, I told Gus I was going to need his opinion on which he then told us that he didn't have a penny.

An audible belch came from Gus while at the dinner table, and Becky reminded him to say "excuse me."  A few minutes later, he said, "Excuse me."  Becky: "Did you burp?"  Gus:  "No.  I tooted!"

Gus and I were taking pictures using Photobooth on my computer:
There were probably around 47 pictures taken (he hand picked the above 3 to "give to mommy, daddy...and Cormac!"), so eventually I had to tell him that the battery was running low on the computer, and we'd have to quit taking pictures.  To which I was then told, "Oh okay, but we're going to play this game in the morning, Aunt Kelsey."  So I'd expect more of these in the coming days if I were you.

Something to keep me busy.

A friend of mine recently let me know about  It's a website that allows individuals and companies to post their graphic design needs, and then the designers submit their work to them, allowing even for feedback to the designers, and then a design is chosen...and PAID for.

I cannot believe I am just now finding this site.  But I found it, and so far, I love it.

Right now, there's a contest for sippy cup designs.  And with all the clients' restrictions and requests, I came up with this for a little girl's cup:
Thought it was worth a try to maybe get some extra cash out of doing something I am absolutely in love with doing...

And now on to work on a little boy's cup!

A Day at the Omniplex

While Becky and her family were in town, visiting the most awesomest science museum ever was definitely on the agenda.  So with her two boys, Gus and Cormac, additional college friend and former sorority house roommate Laura and her two boys, Carson and Cooper, my nephew Austin and Becky's mom, Cindy, we embarked on the formerly known as Omniplex in Oklahoma City.
That's right...5 little boys.  Two 3 year olds, and three one year olds.  But they were all great, and I think they all had a fun time.

One of the fun new additions to the Omniplex is a super fast and twisty, 3 story slide.  Gus did tell me, "Aunt Kelsey, you need me to go down the slide with you since you're scared of it."  Okay, sure thing.  Thankfully though, that picture of me coming down the slide with him has yet to surface...

Cindy and Becky found the water guns...

All the stroller-bound babies.

Austin really wanted to hold Cormac's hand.

And of course, notice Austin's super cool shirt his mom dressed him that morning :)
And my two cute ring bearers, Carson and Gus, all big now!

Husband of the Year

David deserves the Husband of the Year award for these small acts, all in the last 24 hours...

• Leaving the toilet seat up...and yep, I fell in at some point in the middle of the night.

• Forgot to lock Nova up in the kitchen when he went to bed.  The little pup has a habit of peeing at the edge of the couch, and while he's too tiny to really get the couch at all, he does get little dribbles of urine on the floor.  That I get to clean up.

• Didn't take the trash out this morning, so as I was hurrying to get to work, I set it out by the curb.  And got some non-descriptive smelly liquid on my slacks.

• Actually forgot to flush the toilet.  Yes, you read that right.  When I told him what he'd done, he actually said, "What?  That's gross!"  So he's aware that it is in fact, nasty to do that.
