old family re-hyoonion drawings

For a while there we thought our computer might have died. but it is still alive.

But I am tired of writing about my computer.  Instead, here are some unpublished scribblings from last summer's family re-hyune (that is how ppl in my family inexplicably pronounce it). These didn't make the cut at the time because, frankly, they're not that in'neresting.  But I am desperate at the moment, what with all the hullaballoo with my computer lately.  So take it and enjoy it!  You got that?

Here we have Amy, Laura and myself snuggled under a thin blanket on the hard cold ground looking at stars.  side note: When Laura farts she calls it 'popping a bubbly'.  She shouldn't call it that. But she delights in it.

Oh.  And campfire singing. 'Hey Lottie' is a classic that usually turns into ingenious hilarity.



And this is Sarah patiently torturing my thick bush of hair into two neat french braids.  She braided everyone's hair.  Thanks Stott!

Looking at these makes me miss summer.  Especially last summer--so fun.  But a new summer is coming up fast! All day yesterday I had the windows open in the living room.  LOVE fresh breezes.  Nothing lifts a fub's spirits more.

Anyways, chew on these old illustrations while I work on a real post!

Hipster Baby vs Trucker Baby

I decided to just go ahead and write a post today, despite my GIMP woes and slow comp.  GIMP still runs, only with small files though.  It is liable to shut down without warning.  But I was able to pop out these two illustrations of my two chubbies:

The theme of today's drawings is: why do I yearn to dress Owen like a trendy hipster, but with Angus I only feel right dressing him in sweats like a trucker on his day off?

Why?


Isn't it interesting?  Aren't you riveted? I know.

This is a special day.  It is the anniversary of my birth (and other fub's), as well as that of my very first Chubby, Owen.  I didn't really do much, since Ben's working.  we plan on celebrating with family on Sunday.

Speaking of 'fub, she came and visited me the first week of April.  I want to--no, I AM going to write a post about it!!  So stay tuned.

Have a good week!
