Capturing Joy Yo.

Top of the mornin' to ya little pumps.
Two things with that first sentence we need to discuss-
Little pumps stands for Little Pumpkins.
I'm a huge fan of abbreviating anything...especially if it involves anything Fall related.
Secondly, I apologize if you read this and it is not the morning.
I should've thought about the fact that if somebody reads this in the afternoon or evening, it will really throw a wrench into things.
Thankfully, I will not change it but spend ten minutes discussing why I shouldn't have written it in the first place.
Aren't you glad I don't waste any of your precious time rambling on and on?

So anyhow, hopefully if you are here today-you know what time it is.
Time to share our joyous pictures.

I hope your stomach dances around like mine does when I think about today.
And if it doesn't dance-Inhale an order of french fries on your lunch like yours truly.
That baby will be bouncin' in no time.
K, now that I have you all thinking about my dancing stomach...
Lets start showin' off our goods.
And by that I totally mean our joyous pictures ya goof balls.
Without further ado, Smiley McNiley pictures..take it away :)

Cartwheels and I get along real well.

Check out the baby blues on this boy. Cutest Nephew Ever.

My lunchtime hangout spot.

Love. Love. Love.

Friendships equal Joy. And Kissy Faces.

Well that was fun.
Ya know what is funner? Yes. Funner.
Looking through your joyous pictures...that's what.
So, in order for me and the other ten million readers to do so, you must link up below.

Next week I am going to showcase my favorite pictures from the past two weeks that I have found from all you picture lovin' fanatics.
If that doesn't tickle your fancy I don't know what does.

So link up below-include this picture with a link back here on your blog-
and party on party people.

PS. Just because I host a party, doesn't mean I can't attend another.
You can bet you bottom dollar I'm partyin' over here today too:

Have a wonderful weekend peeps :)
