 Carlie Jane folders her hands like this and sits perfectly still some times and she looks so perfect angelic I have to take pictures of her.

 This Sunday John made up a water balloon contest where the kids use a huge sling shot he made and tried to hit him with water balloons. It was a lot of fun but they never hit John, though some got very close. There was a first, second, and third place winner. It was judged by who got nearest to hitting him. This picture is John filling up water balloons. If you ever find yourself needing to fill up about a hundred water balloons there is this very nice tap attachment that makes it much easier and keeps your fingers from getting all rubbed raw. Jimmy Jackson did most of the balloons for us and it was a huge help. Thanks!

 Here is the progress of the balloon filling. If you put water in the chest you can toss the balloons in and they wont burst.

 You can kind of see how it works. The sling shot was made out of surgical tubing and a funnel.

Can your baby do this?!? 😀
(I didn’t really let her near when I was sewing)

 I don’t know if that’s enough diapers but they should last at least a few weeks.

Who needs expensive toys? Boxes are so much more fun.

    She was so fascinated with it and all the shiny nobs. I decided to pick her up and let her investigate it a little but looking quickly turned into touching and grabbing the thread and unthreading the machine…so the first sewing lesson was short lived.

    Just you wait….in a few years Carlie and her cousins will be begging to slingshot water balloons at John when they all get together! 🙂
