My Mr. Smiley Eyes

Dave got a new driver's license yesterday.

He really hates those kind of chores, so he was not looking forward to it.

When I asked him how it went, he told me that he had to have his picture taken 3 times because the woman working the camera kept thinking his eyes were closed.

"I was like, 'This is just how my eyes are, lady!'" Dave said... to me. I know he wouldn't have actually said that to her.

I like his little smiley eyes.

One of my favorite games is to ask him to open his eyes as big as he can. I can guarantee myself a laugh as he tries his hardest to open them beyond capacity.

But if you're ever lucky enough to get a close look, you will see that his eyes are the prettiest ocean-blue you've ever seen.

I think he's really cute.

In other news...

As I was coloring a blue elephant today, I was thinking about how jealous I was of my sister Hillary's coloring skills when I was a kid. She's only 8 years older than me, but her coloring skills were always highly superior to mine.

So I'd like to challenge her (and you, if you'd like to participate) to a coloring contest.

My first entry:
I know cranes aren't yellow and elephants aren't blue, but it's abstract. And it only took me, like, 15 minutes.

I had a comment in my head. I really did. And now it's gone. I need to go to bed. . .

It sounds like you still play that "open your eyes wider" game even though you guys have been together a while. That just makes me laugh thinking about it!

Oh coloring! I was coloring tonight with my daughter and I really really needed it. It's so wonderfully therapeutic isn't it? I'll have to pull out a page and send it to you. :)

One of my closest guy friends has smile eyes. We used to call him China Man. (I know -- that's so wrong!)

The storm kept me awake, too! That was some serious wind. I was honestly worried about out roof. We had lightening, but it was too far away for the thunder to be scary.

WW- When we were first married one of my friends asked me, honestly, if Dave was Chinese.
