Daughter and Daughter-in-law Toons! Yayy!!

This is normally where there would be a witty comment from Ty that makes people laugh and laugh.

I had all sorts of things I was going to say to sound just like Ty–but I forgot what they were. I’m tired, I’m busy, I have deadlines–it takes sleep and time to be funny! Can’t do it.

So here’s the part where I say something mildly salacious and just a wee bit naughty…here’s the part where I realise I’m about to introduce the idea that today’s Toons are done by the daughter, Katherine Templeton-Smith, and the daughter-in-law, Jessica Costley, so I have to get out of that faint whiff of blue.

Phew! Past that!

So, Ty’s too busy signing and sketching and generally telling hilarious stories (I’m guessing, since I’m stuck here in Toronto and he’s swaggering around Calgary having just a great time!) and he couldn’t get a Bun Toon ready for today. He begged each of the children to do a Toon for him…the daughter, who is the youngest child, and pretty determined to show that she can outdo anything her brothers do, had it almost completed before he left yesterday morning. As her father’s daughter, she distills for you the essence of an Archie Comic.

Our daughter-in-law Jessica was the other person to get her “assignment” completed. Jessica distills for you the essence of living with a son of Ty:

It’s funny because it’s completely TRUE!! (Which reminds me, guys–there’s still several more boxes of Kellam’s stuff by the front door).

Tomorrow, will be the boys’ turn to show off their Toons. I chose not to post them today because…well, because they’re not done, actually. Like all good freelancers, they’re trying to ‘push’ their deadlines.

Not-Ty the Guy OUT!!

Now here’s where Ty says something funny and introduces his

Bonus Girl-Accomplishment Moment!!

Don’t have a cartoon for this but, hey Ty–After taking part in the Fibonacci Contest, your daughter is representing her school for the Math Olympics!! Yayyy!! (If you’re at Calgary Expo, and you read this–can you tell Ty, because he probably won’t have a chance to read this for a day or two?)

And from our daughter-in-law Jessica Costley who is a baker, an Avengers’ birthday cake she did a year or so ago:

I know this will be a shock to you--but Ty can be JUST as opinionated as all the other guys. Here, he tells you what HE thinks.

  1. That cake’s pretty legit.

  2. Nicely done by both ladies! Katie’s distillation of Riverdale is pretty bang-on, really, though I confess I lament the absence of Betty. In four captions, you completely recreated the tone of each character, and the facial expressions are terrific! I especially like the look of complete shock and horror on Veronica’s dad’s (name escapes me) face. That should be the basis of an Internet meme.

    Regarding the origin of all those boxes, I can only tell Jessica that after you grow up immersed in a world capable of defying the laws of physics, you soon become capable of actually having multiple objects occupy the same space at the same time. Sir Isaac Newton has never approved, which is why he was portrayed as so stuffy in an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation – which reminds me: I can’t seem to find my DC Trek comics….

  3. Hi there :) Just wanted to leave a comment to say how much I love the cake! So cute and crazy detailing! I recently made some Avengers cake pops and thought it would be fun to share! :) I’d love it if you checked ‘em out!
