Pics of my kids and other stuff...  
Good news. My What to do when you're doing hard time Orlibean standalone was well received. I was a bit afraid it wouldn't.

Someone asked how I was able to make people, sociopaths specifically, likable.

I think back to my making the Queer as Folk gang cannibals and all I can say is:

It's a gift.

*winks*

It's just that I'm not sure being the criminally insane's spokesperson is a good idea. :P

So I'm not sure, but it's been a looooong time since I've posted some pics of the kids. Under the cut are a few of Donovan and Rowan (my two youngest).

Just in case you've ever wondered where someone like me lives, I can assure you it's not in a white, padded room.

LOL!



So here is the waterfall that's in the forest behind our property:

I don't know but they look awfully guilty:

Playing hide and seek in the forest:

And here's Donovan disrupting the badminton game at the annual 4th of July bonanza:

You will also note Rowan and Griffon's butt in the background, getting ready to set off some minor fireworks.

"Aw sweet success! I have acquired a racket and a birdie! Victory is mine!"





Photobucket

"Too little to play, huh? Well I'll show them. I've got all the birdies!" *Mwhahahaha


"No Rowan! You swing from the bars!!!"

Photobucket





I wish I had gotten some better pics of Griffon on the 4th. Next to Christmas, it's his favorite holiday.

Seriously.

He loves the big mortars and the splashy stuff that hubby brings out at night, but he adores the minor ones that he can set off for fun.

Just so you know, I'm sticking to my resolve to write an hour each day.

So, go me!!!!!

It's good to know that somewhere clear, fresh water is splashing down, unfettered and unspoiled. I love my city, and it holds all kinds of joys, but I grew up on a mountain top in the Ozarks, so I love wildness, too.

You know your kids are gorgeous, right? FanSee

Re: Pics
Yep, the water's here! LOL!

See? We're the opposite. I grew up in the San Fernando Valley (yeah, I'm one of the original Valley girls) so when we moved to here, I was suffering from a bit of culture shock.

Now? I could never go back! :)

Yeah, they are pretty darn cute (and know it too)!

Thanks FanSee!

Re: Pics
For years I felt I couldn't go back, but now I think I could, what with TV and especially the internet...provided Fayetteville, Arkansas, has reliable, high speed internet. Of course I won't, because my kids and grandkids are here, and I love 'em to pieces.

That Valley Girl upbringing accounts for your warped mind, I reckon. FanSee
