Day at the Beach

Family Vacation:

Family Vacation

Just got back from " vacation" . We visited Ocean City Maryland and Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. The Atlantic Seashore is so different from our beaches along the Gulf of Mexico...

( Alabama & Florida). It was fun though.... Boardwalk, Salt Water Taffy, Amusement Parks,

and Mini Golf , then of course the beach ( uh, I mean the " shore" ) . Hear are a few pictures.

Me Time!

This never ever ever happens... My husband takes the boys fishing this evening, I guess they left around 6:30 ish. Madelyn is tired, because of no nap today and she goes to sleep around 7 :30 ( woo hoo!) So I get crazy in my scrap room...set with 3 or 4 things going on at once!

( cause this NEVER happens!) Fish must have been biting, they didn't get back untill 9:30!

I love it! I am not a social cropper... well, because that is what I mainly do at them ( crops)...

"socialize" and get nothing accomplished! I always enjoy the company though! So, this was great! My own private, uninterrupted crop on a Friday night!

These are pics of my boys fishin' ( taken last weekend).

Teacher Gifts

The mini lunch box is a gift for Jackson's teacher. I found this lunch box at Jo Ann's for only $1

It happened to be her favorite colors.. blue and red, and I happened to have the perfect coordinating paper ( Daisy D) to alter it with. I made 16 notecards to place on the inside.

For Grant's Preschool teachers, I cut circle foam pieces ( craft foam) and just made a little book

and let him decorate it with stickers & write his name! Next project on my list.... Annette's birthday! Can't wait!

Untill August...

School's out for Summer! I took a photo like this last year... " BUS STOP".

Father's Day Project

Father's Day

Just finished the Father's Day gift I had in mind. The girls at my local scrapbook store have been creating altered canvas wall hangings! They have some great ideas! Thanks! I want to put a slide show up of all the stuff I created or learned in class
"inspired" by them! I should do that soon! So, I finished the Father's Day gift and now I can move on to one last teacher's gift for end of the year! I have learned that Jackson's teacher,

Mrs. James' favorite colors are blue & red, her favorite beverage is Diet Pepsi and her favorite treat is chocolate chip cookies! This will be easy! Based on the colors, will probably be a 4th of July / Enjoy your Summer theme! Annette... I love the flip flop page at the end of your teacher album! Gotta get with you on the how to! Stay Tuned.. I'll post it when I finish!

Holy Cow !!!

My Girl , Annette sent the " traveling box back to me & I got it today!!! I LOVE getting the box back and I LOVE filling the box and sending on it's way to Alabama to find Annette once again!

Gosh, how long have we done this for now? Quiet a few trips for that little box! The "little" box has become worn from being handled so much, that it must now travel inside of another larger box to protect it! Funny, I know! I LOVE all of my goodies! I especially love the stuff Annette makes for me! OMG... She made me a sea shell album like hers! I am so excited! So, I just had to take the photos today to post! Thanks Girl, I love ya lots & miss you so much! Hope to see you soon though!

My "Boys of Summer"

Isn't that what baseball players are called? Well, our ball season has ended. My husband did a super job of (assistant) coaching both of our boy's teams! Grant was so excited to receive his first trophy ! Jackson was most excited about the pool party at coaches house after the last game, I don't think he even looked at his trophy until later that night! I am happy they both had a fun time playing ball!
