Good Morning! Good Morning! It's a Happy Day today! :)
Declan loves his VHS tapes. ALWAYS has. Barney (blech! do you know how many years of Barney I have been listening to?!) , Blues Clues, & Disney Sing Alongs are the favorites. Sometimes he likes full length movies like Disney-Pixar movies (Toy Story and such), or even some of the old Muppets movies (like The Great Muppet Caper) or he even likes Annie at times. (Annie is the easiest on my ears) With all of them he goes in cycles. He may only be interested in Blues Clues for 2 months. Then not touch a Blues movie for 6 months or more. Sometimes it is one particular Blues Clues...sometimes it just might be Blue in general. It gets really irritating though when he focuses on the same line over and over. "Blue Skidooed...so can you...."(Declan giggles and rewinds)..."Blue Skidooed...so can you...."(Declan giggles and rewinds)... "Blue Skidooed...so can you...."(Declan giggles and rewinds)..."Blue Skidooed...so can you...."(Declan giggles and rewinds)...
This is why he prefers his VHS tapes over DVD's. So that he can have this control. DVD's usually go back a whole scene. As you can imagine, some tapes fall victim to the constant rewinding. Many a VCR have come and gone. And now we can't even buy them...I am not looking forward to the day that we come to the bottom of the VCR stash because Declan will not be happy. Actually, I think we are on our last VCR. (we collect them from anyone who doesn't want theirs anymore.) I, however, will be glad to say good bye to many of those incredibly annoying videos. Why am I sharing this with you? Not sure, really! LOL! oh yeah....because today I started off this blog entry with my little "good morning" song. I have started off entries like this several times, then deleted it realizing that you would have no idea that this is from one of Declan's videos and ingrained in my head. And that just because it says "It's a happy day today" doesn't mean anything special...it just is the little song. But what started out as a joke of me singing this silly song, has now become a habit. LOL. Am I making any sense? [For those of you that have not read my previous entries about Declan: Declan has Down Syndrome and Autism. (yep-it is officially Autism now...no longer the PDD-NOS) Declan turned 12 last November.]
Anyhoooooooo-onto the card. Have I mentioned how much I love this Tilda holding her puppy?! You can get it at the KL Stampin N Scrappin store for 10% off every day! ;) I made this card about a week ago. It was my original card for this weeks challenge here on Three Clovers Designs. Yep, this is more of that "old" paper from that "stack" that I got at Michaels several years ago. So where's your card?! As of the time I am typing this post (Sunday night) there are only six (6!!!) participants. Wow...I guess there aren't that many of us with oodles of paper that we bought years ago. I guess the rest of you use up your paper as soon as you buy it. Good for you!
I have no inside of the card to show you for this one...I badly cut my finger while making this card, so I haven't gotten around to doing the inside yet.
Have a Delightful Monday!
