This is Mike's Yeti. He lives in our vegetable garden. The Yeti was invited to Justus's birthday party today but declined - he is shy.

Mary Jane put on a beautiful flower for the celebration, she looked beautiful.

Root beer birthday cake.

I made this quilt and a matching pillow case for Justus. The quilt is backed with dark blue minky. He loves it. My baby is a teenager now. I might shed a tear.

Reach for the sky!

Happy 13th Birthday Justus! Look at this sweet angel on his 3rd birthday holding his Woody birthday cake. Funny thing is we went to see Toy Story Three for his 13th birthday! Funny how Woody is sprinkled throughout Justus' birthdays. I love my Justus. He is a great kid.
He will be going to Timberline Scout training camp tomorrow for the week and I will miss him. Happy Birthday Fitzy!

I beg your pardon

My parents are in the process of moving from the home they have lived in since 1978. This has been a huge project.
Today Justus and I went to help my parents move boxes from their old home to their new home. After loading the trailer my mom suggested that I cut some roses to take home and enjoy. I noticed right away that I was humming a song to myself and totally loving the opportunity of gathering these beautiful blooms. My dad was given a Veteran's rose bush when his father passed away, I cut the last bloom from this bush, closed my eyes, and smelled the red rose. Tears immediately came to my eyes because I have such sweet memories of my 'Papa'.
Sing along with me! " I BEG YOUR PARDON, I NEVER PROMISED YOU A ROSE GARDEN. ALONG WITH THE SUNSHINE, THERE'S GOTTA BE A LITTLE RAIN SOMETIMES." Lynn Anderson knew exactly what she was talking about.

My dear husband Mike has been paiting our home. It is hard to see the color in these pics but, it is a nice, warm tan. These pics are for you Lori.

Summer is here.

Summer is here! This is my first beehive Amy's son Bronson. Mike and I watched Bronson and his 5 month old brother Hunter last week while Amy went out. He had so much fun outside playing with MaryJane and with my piggy watering can. So cute!, and so busy! How did I do it with my boys?

Here is our vegetable garden, doesn't look like much now but soon we will have fresh tomatoes, anaheim chilis, jalepenos, garlic, onions and green beans - can't wait!

Remember this little project I finished last week? I decided to...

...make curtains to go with it for my bathroom. I love the pink in there, makes me so happy! Everything is Hunky Dory!
Love having my boys home. Yesterday they helped me clean blinds that are down while my husband is painting our home. Thanks for everything guys.

Happy Wednesday.
