Can you believe he's nearly two?
Thought I'd better pull my finger out and get organised. He LOVES diggers, and has taken an interest in Bob the Builder lately, so we are going with a bob theme. I'm going to get a new (clean) Scoop to put on top of his cake. Anyway I sat down early this morning before the kiddos were awake and whipped this together. Thank to the Bob the Builder website for the pic of Scoop. It was supposed to be a screen saver, but I cropped Dizzy out. Used the Celebration digi kit from www.shabbyprincess.com which is supposed to be 4th july themed... but it worked for me ;) The two was from one of the other kits... I think the vintage one?
Back soon with an update. Brett has just called to say he's on his way home with a new pet for Liam - EEEEEEEK and bugger!
Back to update...
We now have our very first furbaby... Benson. A very cute rabbit. My DH is one cheaky bugger though. Gee he know how to work around me something shocking! Had he come home and said, "I want to get Liam a rabbit" I would have said no way. No. NO! As a kid I grew up with pets. Mainly a black lab. He was gorgous. But a bit big for the cuddling on the couch thing. In later years we got a cat... but she was not nice. So not nice, I didn't let me boys go anywhere near her. She's gone now though. So I haven't really been the cuddling pet kind of girl. B and I always said we'd get a dog when we got married, but when we did, we were both working full time, and didn't want to get a dog and leave it on it's own at home all day. Then we had Liam... and that was enough to look after. Half the time I can't even be bothered to feed my family at the end of the day. (I do of course!) But worrying about feeding and walking a pet. Ugh, too tired.
So, as I was typing away on my blog, they pulled up, and went straight out into the back garden. Then called me out. My very first reaction was UGH! But Liam had seen it, so I couldn't just say take it back. So I picked him up and gave him a cuddle. Despite him being a little nervous he snuggled in to me... and I think I melted. He was cute! Laying on his back in my arms, with his huge feet sticking up, and his sweet little nose peeping out from between. Then tonight after the boys had had their baths, he came back in for a cuddle. He was a little wet, so B wrapped him in a towel. He lay on Liam's lap for ages, while Liam just watched telly. He has a beautiful temperment. He's three years old. He belonged to one of the guys who works with B, but he needed a new home now. Bummed I don't have a camera! B took a photo on his phone, so I'll get him to down load it later.
