Tattoos & Cute Kids... (but not in the same sentence)

Guess who got a new tattoo today......
Nope. Not me. This was our birthday present to my sister. My mom, my brother and I all chipped in for a tattoo. Sounds kind of trailer park, doesn't it? Well, Carla did have a double wide when she lived in Texas.... so I guess it's appropriate. LOL!
Look familiar? Well it should.
She was a little surprised when I got this one which represented HER children. Because she'd been wanting one for the same reason. So I told her she could copy mine. They're slightly different but basically the same concept. Except she put it right above her ankle. She didn't think putting it on her arm would look professional. Apparently, the Catholic hospital she works in has some kind of rule about visible piercings and tattoos. Imagine that! But as you can see... I don't care about that issue. LOL! Mine's probably covered 90% of the time when I'm working anyway. Not intentionally but just because of the jackets I usually wear to conceal my gun. Woo hoo.... tattoos, guns and double wide trailers. This IS a good post.
While I was uploading the tattoo stuff, I found some cute kid pics that I'd left on my camera. So for your viewing pleasure I give you....
sweet baby Tess looking very serious.
Travis and Tanner putting together the Indiana*Jones*Legos set I got Travis for Christmas.
And Teagan just being his mischievous cute dimpled-smile little self.
Tatum was at ballet class that night but we couldn't do a T's photo spread without a pic of her, too. So I grabbed this one I took a few weeks ago. She adores her baby sister. For now. LOL! Jump over to my sister's blog for some majorly adorable pics of the girls she posted today.
Peace out, y'all. Enjoy your weekend!

Such a beautiful and meaningful tattoo!! I desperately want one, but have no idea what to get. K2 has one on his shoulder and it is awesome!

You crack me up. I wanted a tattoo once, but I wimped out at the last minute. (Huge surprise... I know.) And I love her sisterly show of support.

LOL, I think you've got a good start to a country song there. :)

Love the tattoo and I think it's neat that y'all have the same design. Cute pics of the kids, Tess is getting SO big!

Have a good weekend!

I love the tattoo as well!

I've been wanting one now for 2 years. I think I'm going to wait until we finally get our referral as a celebratory thing! Mine will have Ladybugs.....

I agree with Marla, you have the start of a country song with tattoos, guns and double wide trailers. Too funny. Wish I was brave enough to get a Tattoo.
Kids are beautiful.

The tattoo is cool....Glad your sis follwed through with it!! I almost did it once, and then backed out at the last minute and settled for a belly button ring instead....then I got pregnant with Nick....around my 7th month I couldn't take it anymore and I took it out.....besides, after giving birth, I was in no condition to prance around showing off a belly button ring!! Okay, more than you wanted to know, I'm sure!!

Your nieces and nephews are as cute as can be....adorable photos...those dimples are precious!!

Enjoy your weekend:)

Go Carla! I was sooo close to having my tatto above my ankle too! But put it on my back, so it was even "less" visible!!! I get to show it if I want to!
