I discovered this application on the Mac called Comic Life and made this real quick just to get the hang of it. Click to see it bigger. I can't wait to show the kids how to use it, I know they will have a blast with it. Oldest girl already says she wants to make one about her bunny, the cute and adorable Speckles. I am so proud of how well my girl takes care of her pet, she pays her tons of attention, is always feeding her when she's supposed to and cleans the litter box on a regular basis. I can tell she just adores Speckles, she is so gentle and sweet with her. That's a side we don't see too often these days. To us, she can be kind of stand offish and sarcastic, not in a mean way but in a teenager way, if you know what I mean. It does make me kinda sad that I have to remind her to give me a hug when she goes to bed and she doesn't say anything back when I tell her I love her. Ok, that breaks my heart a little, but I try to remember that this is part of her growing up and she is supposed to be pulling away from us. I am thankful that she still seems to want to hang out with me and tell me what's going on at school and with her friends, I'll take any crumbs at this point, I guess.

Well, this turned into a different post entirely. I was going to complain about my total lack of ability at Photoshop Elements and my cute new BambooFun tablet that would be even more enjoyable if I could figure out that damn Photoshop, but I'll save that for another day.

Dalton does the SAME thing suddenly with the I love you's! What's up with that?!?! Would it kill them to say it?! Sheesh. I actually feel tons better reading that Lydia is the same way. Also Dalton is that standoffish sarcastic and it makes me sad too. It could be soooo much worse, I try to remember. I think standoffish sarcastic is as good as it gets! haha.

CUTE comic! Incidentally I only went out of town, I did not quit. I am so taking your ass down in word madness or whatever its called!
