I love it when a vision in my noggin FINALLY makes an appearance in the real world! I've been wanting to make a chore chart for the girls for a while now and I LOVE how they turned out! The frames were from a yard sale, the sheet metal are shingles from Home Depot, the magnets are clip art printed on cardstock, attached to clear flat marble thing-a-ma-jigs, that are glued to magnets! There will be a line down the middle and TO DO and DONE on the top, as soon as i go get my cricut out! I've also got a few pics of the fun hair do-dads im makin for favors at Kennedy's 4th birthday....Four. Really?! Already?!?! How did that happen?!

As i was putting away our Christmas decorations (that actually never made it out to the shed and are now crammed in my bedroom...) I wanted to take pictures of some of our homemade and special decorations....

A special Angel made for me by a close friend in the 7th grade!

Jeff's nutcracker collection, it all started with the guy in the tan top!

Our new tradition of the girls making us decorations at Color Me Mine! These were last years, guess which one is Kennedy's....

My Angel. Our first Christmas together we were very broke, and i found the pattern for this angel in an old craft book. We've used her ever since!

2011...the year of ME

Oh how i long to be one of those beautiful blogger women who seem to have it all together and the time to blog! How do they do it? I want to work on some projects, i have a long list. I figured that if i post it here, i will feel more accomplished when i do them?! Who knows! After having a stiff and extremely sore neck all day, i spent a lot of time on the computer surfing some awesome blogs. I want mine to be awesome too. I want to inspire people and give them tools to create just as these women have helped me. So here's to 2011 being the year of me....and figuring out just who that is!

10 months is too long

for a new daddy to be away from his son, and a hubby to be away from his wife...but at last they made it! I am so glad that my cousin Kelly has made it home for his 15 days of leave, the long part of his Iraqi journey is over!
Em was being shy, so instead of saying hi, she took out her gum! Kelly apparently speaks this language, he popped his out too!

Our day did not end on a sour note...

How I spent Labor day weekend...

My vacation began Wednesday....then came to an abrubt halt Thursday afternoon when Ken threw up all over the place and was running a fever. SO down the hill we went, leaving Em and her daddy to enjoy a few days to themselves. After a few days of rest, Ken was back to her goofy self again so we headed back up Saturday afternoon. And vacation went on as planned!Even Amos got to go camping for the first time!

Beer, Horseshoes, and a big rock that snuck up behind me when i wasn't looking....

That's right, we watched movies around the campfire one night!

Thanks to Melanie for bringing some princess goodies for all the girls to decorate!
Carli, Kennedy, Alexiya, Emma and Breena

Kennedy at the lake... CHEESE!

Perfect S'more!!

Perfect pants for S'more makin! :P

Em's play doh bird! Isn't he the cutest!!

Me and my silly "Ned"

Em and Lexi have been camping here every year together since they were one!

Yes, Kennedy is crying, Emma is being a cheeser and Amos is chewing on his own lip, but that's us!!!!

I'm Back. Again!

Let's see if we can try this again and be real bloggers! I even made it all pretty all by myself! But that wore me out, so now I'm going to bed and then we'll add some pictures later!
