HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY 100! Sweet hub, cute kids. My five year old never stops! Either the mouth is going or the feet are going! lol Have a Great Tuesday!

Diane Duda said...

Such "friendly" little treats!

Those boys are so funny! When mine were little we would just turn on the stereo every night and they would be content to dance/jump on the couch playing their air guitars and singing away.

Happy 100th!

LuLu said...

JOYEUX ANNIVERSAIRE, Jenn! Congrats on your 100th post! Would love to win that little painting of yours! Ohh! A husband that bakes cupcakes, you must take good care of him! My son used to break dance all the time, he would put the same tune over and over again. I am so thankful I took a video of him shaking his booty! Now, we watch it and at 11-years old, he CAN NOT believe he did that! Your little surprise parcel will be shipped tomorrow if all goes well! Take care, Jen, and thanks for the tea and cakes! LuLu

Jenn... what a wonderful gift you've been to all of us!

This is so exciting... 100 posts! I really don't know how you do it all, and do it all so well.

Here's to another 100 posts and a long, artful life for noodle and lou! It's what all of us artists want, yk? Just to create. When they say it's cheaper than therapy, it really is true! :)
