Mom and Baby Eleanor

It's Funny Friday

Hello, My Preety's.
I went to felting class with Mom last week and the ladies created elephants.
 Here is Mom's creations, Mom and Baby Eleanor.  Mom Ellie is 5 way jointed (head and limbs).
We had lots of fun together, although Mom did get frustrated a few times, but in the end we are in love with these two Ellie's.

Hugs, until next time................
Love, Vlad

Birthday Surprises

It's Funny Friday
by Prudence
Well, the first picture was photo bombed
 This is me studying the program from Phantom.  Dad and I took M to The Peace Center in SC to see the performance on her b-day, February 1.  We had a wonderful time, Dad had our seats in the 6th row, almost center.   I had a fun time and loved every minute of Phantom.
See you next time.....

Then we had some fun with the little kids.
"FLORA, you Stupid Head, get up.
It's Vlad, just Vlad!
Mom is trying to scare us."

The Beast

It's Funny Friday
by Prudence

This is the conversion between Mom and Dad a few weeks ago (AFTER our first big snowstorm).

M - are you going to finally look for a snowblower?
D - yes, I've been looking and I think I've found what I want.
M - okay, are you going to order it?
D - I did yesterday.
M - how long before it gets here?
D - it's coming freight from Ohio.
M - freight?
D - yes, it's 250 lbs.
M - huh (thinking, what the heck did he buy)
 Four days later......
D - the snowblower is being delivered today.
M - yippee.
D - I will take your SUV down the driveway and meet the driver.
M - why?
D - I told you, it weighs 250 lbs. and I am going to have to tow the crate up with the trailer hitch.
M - crate?
D - yes, it's 250 lbs.
M thinking "so how big can a snowblower be, maybe the size of our lawnmower?"
and so, The Beast is now a member of the family, I give you

(and yes it has headlights and HEATED handles, I asked about a CD player and cup warmer for hot chocolate - I just got "the look", hey they were honest questions (o:

Finally, I am back.....

It's Funny Friday
by Prudence

Yes, it's really me - in the mohair.
It was a busy fall with the publishing of our book, "Three Bears And A Vulture", and then our online craft show, Thanksgiving, Christmas and now...................we are back to normal.  Well, normal for us that is, normal for normal folks - I don't think so.

I have missed writing and now I am refreshed and ready to begin a new year, new writings, maybe a recipe or two.... and of course funny stories about my family.

Mom has a needle felting class coming up - elephants (one of our favorite animals) and she was nervous about how she was going to make hers so she went ahead and made Baby Eleanor.  Oh, she is a wee baby girl, but I must say Mom didn't disappoint - whimsical.  Always whimsical, I think that is the only animal she can create.  But, I have to admit, I smile when I look at Baby Ellie (that's her nickname).  Here, you be the judge.................
So, what do you think?  Whimsical?

Well, that's a wrap for this week.  Mom and Dad are going to see Phantom Of The Opera at the Peace Center in Greenville next week.  Mom has been playing the CD forever, but thankfully she isn't singing.

Taking A Break

It's Funny Friday
by Prudence

We are taking a little break from posting.  We will be back in a few weeks.

All of Us

Hen-Ray-Etta and The Snowman will be available as a pair in the fall.  They will be made of fabric, not needle felted.
