My Friend

This LO has pictures I happened to catch of my daughter and her friend while on a field trip. It was too sweet to not take the pictures.

Go your own way...

Katie has no trouble at all with taking pictures of the rest of us, but point a camera at her and you have a scuffle. I usually bribe her to get good pictures, but this time I decided to harass her and see just how far she would go... bad mommy, fun page...LOL

Which Positive Quality Are You?
Your Result: Love

You are Love. Love is the glue that binds us all together. The love of family, the love of friends, the love between husbands and their wives--these things form the foundation of our happiness, our security, and our comfort. "All you need is love."

Which Positive Quality Are You?

photo temporarily missing...

is the cutest little boy in the world hugging you on mother's day. This is one of those weird challenge layouts where someone sends you a bunch of random items and you have to put them together for a LO...took me a bit, but I think I pulled it off...if not, just look at that cute little boy instead! LOL

Tuesday Thoughts

"Relying on God has to begin all over again every day as if nothing yet had been done."
~ C.S. Lewis ~

I don't know about anyone else, but I find my faith needs super charging every day. If I don't start my day trusting in HIM I end up sinking fast. It's a lot like building our house. When they first poured the concrete it was wet and messy. You couldn't walk on it or you sunk right in. After it hardened we put a whole hose on top of it! That's a BIG difference in the strength.

1 Unless the LORD builds the house,
its builders labor in vain.
Unless the LORD watches over the city,
the watchmen stand guard in vain.

I was Tagged....

I was tagged by Ginny...

The Rules:So this is how it works. I must post the rules, 7 random things about me and then tag others to do the same. Sound fair enough, right? These are the rules…. each player starts with 7 random facts about themselves on their Blog. People who are tagged need to blog 7 facts about themselves and post the rules as well. At the end of their blog list 7 people you are tagging. Let them know that they are tagged by leaving them a comment.

1. I homeschool my kids.
2. I join more swap than I will ever need pages for.
3. I'm afraid of crickets.
4. Fajitas are next to cheesecake on my list of the best things about being alive.
5. I live in a silver house.
6. Although I'm accident prone, I have never broken a bone (the toe my child broke for me doesn't count)
7. I have never painted daisies on a big red rubber ball :)

I am tagging (I only know 3 people who blog)

Three New Layouts

Wednesday, July 04, 2007

Here are pictures of the parade we did this morning. The float was designed and painted by the kids in the 4H Drama group my kiddos belong to. They did a play on the steps of a founder of the city's home that has been truned into a museum, but they all moved so much the pictures didn't turn out to well...

the infamous boy cheese sandwich

proud of my girls...

My girls belong to a 4H drama club. As part of their community service the agreed to help the heritage society out by participating in the "Making History Come Alive" tour they do as a fundraiser. Basically what they had to do was dress up in period cothing, memorize a speech about the person and participate in a live "interview" in front of strangers who ride a chartered bus through the cemetery where all the founders of our city are buried. They ended up having to do this a total of 7 times. The two news channels came out and filmed the group and then a reporter from the paper came out and took pictures and talked to the kids a bit. It was absolutely beautiful and finally not raining!

Your personality type is optimistic, curious, enthusiastic, and open.

Only about 4% of all people have your personality, including 3% of all women and 5% of all men.

You are Extroverted, Intuitive, Thinking, and Perceiving.

This is a kit I made for a friend...its hard to see the little details, but I'm too lazy to take close ups...and its already in the envelope so I'm not going

Alterd purse

This is a purse I altered for a friend. I used one from Hobby Lobby and covered with navy paint and Everyday Tango papers. Then used white paint around the edges, added chipboard and rubons and a big flower. The oval in the center is where there is a cut out to add her favorite photo.

I just have to brag on the kids today. The girls worked all week on their History fair project. They researched and took notes and put together a display and then had to answer questions at the fair. They did an excellent job!
