Grand kids and a Twin card...

So what do these have in common? Well, nothing really, it's just high time I posted some pictures of the kids and I have made a card with a twin image on the front. I will post the card first and then get to the "grands".

I found the little "Two Peas In a Pod" charm at Hobby Lobby and I guess that was my jumping off place. Since the little twins we have in our care (who will be 3 next week! OMG!!) are bi-racial I thought I would do their skin darker (but I'm afraid I got it toooooo dark) They are really very light skinned.

Here is a close up of the little charm that was my inspiration...

and here is my card...

a side view of the card...

And a close up...

The inside - very simple and plain...

Now onto the grandchildren...

My daughter and her youngest, Kyle, came up on Memorial Day so that I could go and spend some time with hubby while he was lounging away at the hospital. When I got back we took the kids to Mickey D's for lunch and then dropped by Walmart to by a pool and slip'n'slide! It was a huge hit. My neighbor came over and blew up the pool for me with his handy little pump, but it was the slip'n'slide that was the big hit!

Here are a few pictures of the 'grand' day!

This is Kyle in the foreground, Jordan lying down and one of the twins (don't ask me which one, who can tell from this angle?)

Here is Kyle having a 'grand' slide!

Kyle and Brielle (I can tell who is who from this angle)

This is Josslyn - they love the gentle flow of water...

And finally - everyone in the pool. The ham is Kyle!

I so appreciate you coming by my blog to see the latest happenings in our household...
