Free Craft Giveaway!!!

Thanks Courtney! What a great idea!
Here's how you play:
The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me!
My choice. For you.

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:


1. I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!


2. What I create will be just for you.


3. It'll be done this year. {might be a little while}


4. You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be a story. It may be poetry or maybe even some creation I haven't even invented yet. I may draw or paint something. I may bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure!


5. I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.


The catch? Oh, the catch is that you must re post this on your blog and offer the same to the first 5 people who do the same on your blog. The first 5 people to do so and leave a comment telling me they did win a FAB-U-LOUS homemade gift by me!

* * *Oh, and be sure to post a picture of what you win when you get it!* * *

If you don't want to post this on your blog and do the same for 5 others that's okay.

Camp Out...


We are sleeping in Lauren's room until Wednesday.  I noticed the floor in the corner of our room last week was wet.  So I called maintenance and they put a blower in our room on Saturday and cleaned it up.  Well, it rained again on Sunday.  So we have water again in our room.  So now we have a blower going up to the ceiling, one pointing on the floor and a huge humidifier in our room and it is too loud to sleep through.  At least Lauren likes it.  She loves having us sleep in her room.  Luckily she has a day bed so we have an extra mattress and my sweet husband is letting me sleep on it :o)

New Glasses!! **


Well, I got new glasses. What'ya think? Not too bad. At least I can see better. I haven't worn glasses since...wow, I can't remember when. I had lasik done in '03. That helped a lot until the end of last year. My right eye is the bad one. I am nearsighted. The doctor told me that in about 5 years I would be needing reading glasses also. Talk about feeling old!!!
**update--No new glasses. They got returned for now. Dental work needs to be done and that comes first. I can wait for the glasses. The doctor said my eyes were good enough to pass DMV, so Mikey can have his crowns and possible root canal. Thank goodness it isn't me.

Twin Day!!


Today was twin day at Lauren's school.  So her and her best friend Makenna dressed alike.  We went shopping last week and they picked out the outfit they wanted to wear.

Snow Day!!

We went to the snow with the Owens gang, Dave-Jeslin-Casey-Tiffany, and had a blast. Dave brought his knee board that you use behind a boat, but it worked great for going down the hill.
Lauren all decked out!


She's got her tube and heading for the hill!
(it's for the pool, but it worked for a bit)



Carrying up the knee board


Having fun with Tif



Kicking it!
