11 of 30 Days of Freebies

Today I was reminded of why hubby and I had kids. It's for the entertainment. If you ever forget the fun of raising kids, just go to a T-ball game.

This is our 4-yr old's first year to play ball, and today was her first practice. She has 2 coaches, a man and a woman. Ally got to meet the woman first because she was the 'bat coach'. She helped to show them how to stand when they went up to bat, and how to swing the bat without giving the coach a serious skullache. Anyway, when it was Ally's turn to bat, I could hear her chattering all the way to the plate, telling her coach where she got her shoes, and her helmet, her bat, her glove, etc. etc. She's like her mom ::QQn innocent:: and is never quiet. Anyway, that coach worked with her a little while on batting, and then she sent her to get her glove and go out into the field with the other coach, who was showing them how to stand and how to catch the ball.

Let me say here that I noticed right off the bat that Ally has only 2 fielding positions. In Position One she's leaning over with her glove all the way on the ground, waiting patiently for a ball to be hit her way and roll neatly into her glove, and in Position Two she's standing with her glove hand in the air as far as she can reach, waiting patiently for a ball to be hit in the air and land neatly in her glove. All during practice she alternated between these 2 positions, changing only when her arm or back became tired. Well, the coach noticed that she only had 2 positions, and he went to help her. I couldn't hear their conversation from the sidelines, but I saw him lean down to talk to her, stand back up, walk around to the other side of her, bent down, and talked some more.
After a few minutes, he yelled to the sidelines, "Hey, what's this one's name? She won't tell me!" So of course the other coach and all the parents got a good laugh out of that. She's 4, and let me tell ya, she has the biggest attitude of all my girls, and may even put ME to shame. She has one of those looks that will insure that no boys will get close to her without her permission. And she will tempt them too, with those big blue eyes and those platinum blonde curls.

I scrapped some pics of them this evening, using papers and elements from a new kit I've been working on called Cherry Vanilla Ice Cream. The first one is our oldest, Brooke, the second one is our 7 yr. old Carlee, and the last one is our youngest, Ally.

Today's freebies are the doodads to go with the 2nd alpha in Peachy Fantasy. You can snag them Here on Rapidshare or Here on 4Shared. Please leave a comment, and send your friends here to grab them. Hope you enjoy playing with them, and if you make any layouts from them please link me to them so I can see how you've used them!
