Chip Off the Ol' Block


The older my boys get the more I hear from my husband's mother: "He's just a chip off the ol' block. I remember the time Brian did..." Oh dear, I have a feeling that there are many, many more stories to follow.

And the ultimate prize is up for grabs, sponsored by Simon Says Stamp-you've got to stop by the blog to check out the details, freshen up on the rules and see some great inspiration from the Girl Fridays!
