When Papa Was Away at Sea, And Mama in the Arbor, Ida Played Her Wonder Horn to Rock the Baby Still.





The title is the first few lines in Outside Over There by Maurice Sendak, which I prefer 10 times over to Where The Wild Things Are.

Captured on film: Cute Hubby soothes the baby with a little Rock & Roll Swindle.

At first glance, it looked like he was playing 'Guitar Hero' and Babyzilla wants his attention for something in the first two photos then ends up settling for the time being in the latter two haha.....

Cait: Probably no where near as creative as yours. I have to work today.

JFK Jean: That's funny. It's a little hard to see what's really going on, unless you already know. I'm going to look up Guitar Hero now.

Happy Sunday, Diane!

That is so cool!

Vic: Once you find that book, you'll be hooked. The illustrations are beautiful.

Joanna: Thanks honey.

Raigan: You are most welcome. I like the idea of simple hair for a dance. It always looks better when you look at photos years down the road.

Chris: Cute Hubby plays rock, I play folk. Guess who's playing Babyzilla likes the best? Not mine, it lacks a beat.

I gave my Hubby guitar lessons for his 40th birthday. He sounded good but he's given it up because it used to drive me crazy when he practiced. This is way before I started reading blogs and blogging. Maybe I'll have him take lessons again. I have something to do now besides sit and listen to him practice! Your Cute Hubby looks like he can ROCK the house!

Hugs!!

Tracey: He's been playing since he was a kid. Yeah, it's kind of sexy. Anyways, that's so cool about giving your hubby lessons. Maybe he could play guitar while your daughter plays the drums. xo

I love your home, it always looks so cool yet cosy.

Great pics of Cute Hubby and Babyzilla, you can see her being charmed each step of the way.

He could probably make a fortune if he offered that skill out for hire.
