Sketchy Thursdays...

Yesterday I had the chance to play with my friend Lynne.  We had such a fun afternoon, scrapping, chatting and being entertained by Charli, her 4 year old daughter.  I had about 3 thoughts on the Sketchy Thursdays challenge and finally settled on these pictures of Aden and a baby mouse.

One afternoon the boys came running up to the house asking me to come outside and see what they had. a mother of 3 boys, I was suspicious as to what was in Aden's cupped hands.  I did stop and ask if it was something that was going to jump out at me.  I've learned from past experience that anything from frogs to bugs could be in those hands!!  :)  This time is was a baby mouse.  I thought " cute".  And got the camera to take some pictures.  After just a few minutes, those "awww....." thoughts turned to "ewww....its still a MOUSE."  That would be the time I told them to let it go.   That was a few weeks ago and they still talk about that day.   I still shudder at the thought of it crawling all over their hands!!  Ewww......

Oh, and just for fun...this is my favorite snack right now.  Mmmmm....carrots and hummus!  And to think, if Lynne hadn't brought some over once, I might not have ever tried hummus.  I was only trying it to be polite and now its a favorite!!  LOL...thanks Lynne!!  :)
