random thought weekend

January 24, 2011

i can’t think of anything clever to write tonight. but i do have lots of images to share from our weekend, so i’m hoping once the pictures start flowing, so do the words…if not, my apologies, but here we go : random thought weekend.

trying to inject more creativity into our household. lately i’ve been feeling lacking, in a desperate sort of way, like must. be. creative. must rearrange living room and present project idea after project idea to my unsuspecting lover. heeheee, he’s teetering. random. so i snapped these shots of ownee finger painting away, i love the look of concentration he has in this image…

and this bird’s-eye view almost makes me feel like i’m right there painting with him…ps this was the runniest finger paint of ALL TIME. by the time he was done we had puddles underneath the easel. thank goodness for cheap sheets from a thrift store.

i wanna be a baller, shock collar, 20″ blades on the impala…for some reason these images of emmi make me want to step back in time and sing that old rap song. random. he SO wants to be like his big brother and so is forever mimicking him this time teeball style. plus, i just can’t ever, EVER get enough of his big, BIG, BIG blue eyes.

and this image. i love everything about this image. the vintage looking tee, his little hand gripping the ball, him hugging his bat, the color, blurred toes, green grass…ahhhhh…

every time we play outside, my frost eaten plants stare me in the face like what the heck?! this is the southwest…how did we end up like nature’s popsicles. sad.

i’m pretty sure i’ve decided everyone should got to target at least once in their lives dressed like this…

super ownee and his stripey side kick bust through the red target doors to save unsuspecting customers from poor purchasing decisions…bahahahahahahah! i’ve also decided capes have a magical way of making you feel empowered and wouldn’t it be awesome if cape’s were part of our normal, everyday wardrobe. random. i warned you. reeeeeeeally random.

for some reason, i love jet trails streaking across the sky. they make me happy.

so does this chalk.

i think chalk drawing could become some sort of therapy. depressed? here’s some colorful chalk…go knock yourself out on that sidewalk there and then hit up that cinderblock wall. come back when you either run out of chalk or feel happier. what do you think? :)

and then there’s this guy. he started real, true, honest-to-goodness teeball this weekend, and he loves it. but i’m not sure he loves it as much as i love watching him.

they learned to throw by showing off their muscles.

i love his intensity in this next image, but my favorite part of the whole teeball lesson was when he would flash me the ‘i love you’ sign and his brilliant smile every few minutes or so. i love you too little buddy.

ownee’s biggest fan, and much more patient than anticipated. it’s REALLY hard to sit still and watch someone play something you love too.

ps…remember i’m trying to inject more creativity into our world? i made emmi’s shirt this weekend. oh, yeah! and he will gladly point out his airplane for you…

my three favorite fellas…

i’m going to wrap up my random thoughts for the night and possibly think about going to bed…possibly. but i do need to say that the next blog post will be the one you are waiting for. and you know who you are. and my apologies for how LONG it has taken me.

and good night!

    I have done posts this this before…it’s a great way to gather all that randomness into one post…I love it…I love the painted fingers of the apron doned artist…love the airplane wearing, intense little brother with just a hint of drool… love the cape wearing super hero and his striped shirt side kick ( I can only hope my hero would like that that as I am saved inside Target!)…love it. Thanks for giving us a glimpse into your randomness! ♥
