Just A Few Random Things

I made this B. Well, I covered it with bookpages. I like how it turned out!
Then there's Boo in the car. What a silly girl. Notice the barbies in their "sleeping bags" on her lap.
Next, a fun evening with Nana and Poppops!

I'm dying over Pinterest. Seriously don't know why I didn't join long ago when I first heard of it...oh, prob something to do with feeling like I was being pulled in five different directions and not wanting to take the time to learn something new. But, oh! The wonderful works of Pinterest! I am so ecstatic to have a place to organize all those lovely images I come across on the WWW but never can remember where or what exactly. It took Jon leaving and going to Alaska for a week and me being bored enough to paint the stairwell, weed the yard (almost the whole 1/2 acre), make a bazillion cookies, watch four movies (2 of which were with Tonya--what a pal), and run out of books to read before I remembered! PINTEREST! and I'm never looking back.

Who wants to go?!?!

I Wear My Sunglasses at Night

This is the progress on my folks' house! Lookin' good, Dad!
(BTW-this photo was taken at 10pm)

Alaska Fun

Looks like some yummy dungeonous crab, some beautiful property, and some vegging boys.

Off to Alaska!!

Joe flew by himself last week for the first time! He met his two boy cousins (Jayden and Micah) in Seattle and they flew to Alaska to spend two weeks with Papa Mel and Gammie at their property. The house isn't livable yet, so they are all in the fifth wheel for now. So far he's caught a fish, seen a moose, explored an airplane wreckage (from the '50s) and gotten reacquainted with his cousins.


We took off for the beach for a couple nights last week--love that beach camping! It was beautiful but windy the first two days down at the shore. We had a lot of fun!

Abram's New Look

He would walk around with these goggles on forever (if I let him) and cries when I take them off. What a Goo!
