happy thanksgiving!

Published by under photography

Well, with the temptation of all that sugar on one plate, it didn’t make it to today. After we got home he was able to restrain himself for about 1 1/2 hours then he and Owen […]

just a bit of silliness, really

Published by under Family,photography

What movie?? Hehehe! No Crap Shoot Tuesday from me, today. Instead I thought I’d share a funny picture from an experiment a few weeks ago. The boys and I were waiting in the van after a hike while Don ran in to Best Buy to pick up Rock Band 2. Since we had been hiking, […]

Published by under Family,sewing

Gettin’ colder around these parts! Which really isn’t cold compared to the rest of the US. LOL!! But we’re going to be having some rain and it looks like we’ll be in the mid 60s to mid 70s for a while. I’m hoping for no more 80s! Seriously, I like the colder weather. Wearing shorts […]

twilight *Spoilers*

Published by under me

Last night I went with my Mom to the midnight showing of Twilight, thought I’d share some of my thoughts on the movie. I may share some spoilers to those who haven’t read the books, so don’t read on if you want to be surprised. The film didn’t have the biggest of budgets and, unfortunately, […]

Published by under photography,puppies

This adorable dalmatian puppy is my brother’s new puppy, Houdini. He surprised us all last week when he went out and got her. The boys were very excited to go over and see the new puppy and they both love her to pieces. My brother spent a lot of time thinking of a name for […]

crap shoot tuesday – and a gr8 tag!

I almost wasn’t going to worry about Crap Shoot Tuesday today, until I went to my Sister-in-Law Jenna’s blog and spied that I have been tagged! So I decided to share a recent praying mantis picture that *almost* turned out. I was bummed to see that the camera focused on Owen’s hand, not including the […]

cowboy apron

Published by under sewing

I went to my Mom’s and forgot to bring this along to show her. This is the first of four aprons that I cut out this week. I’m calling this one the “cowboy apron” for obvious reasons. 😉 My Mom had this fabric and it worked out perfectly for this apron style. I really like […]
