Happy Birthday to...
My sister Deana! (A big one!!!)
My wonderful husband Dustin! (Another big one!!!)
My brother Mike!
My mother in law Marie!

All of whom are very special, important people in my life! I hope you each have a wonderful birthday! I love you all so much!

To bow or not to bow? That is the question.

Well, one of them anyway! I have been thinking about making and selling bows. There are not a lot around here, so I think I could do good. But should I? I may make up an outline with pictures and take it around and see if I get any interest, we shall see.
ALSO, I have been thinking about making beaded watch bands and selling them?!?! I have been making a bunch and think it would be fun, but no one here has any, so would they be a hit??? I may do the same with the bows and see what happens. We shall see!
If any of you want either of these, I will do custom orders. I need to take some pictures of mine and post them! I have been having so much fun beading! And Bowing!

Turrrtle Turrrtle Turrrtle

Can any of you name the movie my title is from???
Things have been busy, when aren't they? We decided to get a few Kayaks so we had something fun do do in the water. Mainly Dustin wanted to be able to go out and fish, so for an early birthday present we got Kayaks. They are really fun. Although we have only got to go 2 times! While we where at the bay playing in the sand while Dustin fished, Bekah got tired of sitting in the kayaks, we saw this really cool bird! The kids also found a quick sand spot! They loved going in it and sinking to there mid calf's. Bekah was so funny! Getting the kayaks ready to go out in the bay, Dustin's kayak
My kayak, I get the double/triple seater so we can all go!

Playing near the bird and quick sand

The cool, huge bird that joined us at the beach

The bird

Look how big his feet are! That is my foot print next to his, I wear am 8 1/2!

Can you see the huge frog we saw in our yard when we were going out to see the turtle?

Our backyard turtle! I finally got to see him!

He came back yesterday, but as I was going out to take more pictures, I ran into our backyard snake, so I ran back inside and didn't get anymore, but I have seen him twice now! He seems to cross the yard every morning, then head back across a little later!
I have been teaching art this week. I got to teach Grace's class of first graders yesterday, they did really great. It was fun. Today I get to teach Jacob's class of 3rd graders! We shall see how that goes! I might also need to teach another 3rd grade class, none of their parents have volunteered to teach them, so sad! So, as always I am busy and off to run wild! Speaking of running, I finished one mile club card, which means I ran 5 miles in the last 2 weeks. So I got a necklace with a foot (they call them toe) token. Each time you finish a card, or 5 miles you get a token. The kids thought it was so cool that their mom got one already! (What they didn't think about is that I go to mile club twice every Thursday, so I do a lot more running than most parents!) I still haven't figured out why they want me there, they don't run with me, just wave as they pass. But oh well, it is helping to get my butt in shape!!!
Anyway, off to run...crazy that is...

Rain Rain Go Away! Come Again Another Day!

When it rains it pours!!!

It didn't let up for a while!
Froggy Froggy Where are You!!!

Every time it rains, out come the Frogs!

Whats around the corner? Is there a camera freak?! HELP!!!

Love this one! I almost missed him hanging under the branch!

They love our windows for some reason!

Somehow this little guy got between the screen and the window in my kitchen!

He found his way out though!

As you can see we have a lot of Froggy friends! We also have a turtle, or so Dustin says, I have yet to see him! He says he crosses our backyard every morning, but it must be early! And we also have a snake;( I didn't enjoy finding him!!! I was walking around the back yard and thought I got tangled in a branch, it had stormed the night before, well I kind of hopped out and looked down as the snake went on his way! It was not pleasant, and I had the hebbie gebbies all day, and still do when I think about him on my feet! Bekah heard the story and wanted to go see him! She was excited, at least one of us was!!!

To Boring???

I know my life is boring, but is anyone out there? I have missed everyone and there comments! I know, I am asking a lot, but I like to keep in touch with you all! You don't have to have a blog to comment either! I will try to spice up my life a little! Hey I had a great time shopping with a friend, no kids, last night! So I am working on the spice a little!

Catfish anyone?!?!

The boys went fishing and came home with a couple catfish! They are really weird looking! They had a great time so it was worth it!

Catching up!

Well this week has been very uneventful, as I have been sick. So now it is catch up time! On everything! I hate falling behind! Here are the latest pictures! Enjoy!

The girls new bunk bed, all put together!

Gracie cheering at Jake's game.

Jake playing, he is #25, right in front of 11, you can see his 5

Bekah havin' fun at the game!

Jacob found a hermit crab in a great shell at the beach, we had fun watching him for a while, but we left him there so he could live! In the above picture he is covered in sand; below you can see him hiding in his shell. His legs are sticking out a little.

Dustin & the kids building a fort

The sun was starting to lower in the sky

my 'Foot prints' in the sand

If you look close you can see a black fin in the middle of this picture, when we got to the beach we saw 3 dolphins swimming around, this was the best picture I could get from the beach. They stuck around and every now and then would swim by, it was cool.

I took Bekah to a really fun little park/ Splash park in town. She had lots of fun, and it was really nice.

We had a great time, and she keeps asking if we can go to the water park! So we will try to go again soon, when we are healthy!
I also added a new slide show with more pictures! Check it out! And leave a note, I love seeing who 'stops' by!
