Fall Already?

So much for trying to be on the ball and on top of things-- failing miserably!!  My niece who's birthday is today (Happy Birthday Mandy!!!!)  Will get her gifts late as I have only had them here and bought for a month now-- finally wrapped and mailed them Not on Monday like I was planning but Tuesday when I remembered.  Ooooops!
So we have finally gotten the remodeling bug and it bit big time!  We have almost finished our bedroom.  Just need to place crown molding, and lamp, hang pictures and I believe it is done!!!  Finally after 2 years of trying.  Our front yard is a dirt pit until start of October when we will have sprinklers placed, sod and river rock laid, and a new flower garden designed.  Hopefully will work out well.  I have to prime and paint the bathroom and then I believe the remodeling stint will go away for the year or two!!!!
Gavin is busy with boyscouts-- earning achievements and selling popcorn.  Homework everynight that has Mom searching what the stuff means as it has been at least 30 years since I did anything of the sort and it is all different than what and how I learned to do it!
We got a new 2 drawer stove for a really really good price and I can't wait to start using it!!!!
Hoping the family will come visit for the holidays!  Hint Hint!!!!!

I am starting with Halloween/Fall decorations and setting up my village in a new spot!  Should be cool!  Can't wait!

Summer 2011

So it is already July!  Wow time flies when you are busy! 
Happy Birthday Dad and Misty!
Gavin is enjoying spending a month with his grandparents in Montana!  From the looks of the pictures-- I think he is having a great time.  Rob and I have been busy with work and trying to find some time to ourselves.
Love Green Lantern, Thor!!!!  The movies ROCK!!
We did go to  Elitch Gardens with friends before Gavins vacation-- there I dumped my camera twice in the Lazy river and now it is not working too good! 
Gavin did spend a week at cubscout camp and really had a great time!

Wow school is out for Gavin already and now on to a very busy summer!  Boys have plans to catch a lot of movies.  So far have see Thor (awesome!!), Fast 5, Pirates of Carribean (too long-- but I can enjoy Johnny Depp!).  So not sure what we all have planned but  hopefully an enjoyable one before we lose him to MT for a month!

February 2011

So this year is really moving!  Right now am working on my son's birthday party.  He wants a pirate theme so I have the invites done (Thanks Mom!), cupakes started for school, made chocolate suckers for the party and chocolate pirate markers for cupcakes, ordered a Pirate themed wall, filled gift bags and have been given detailed instructions on how to make the cake!  So now I have plans for how that will work-- wish me luck that it turns out the way he wants it!!!

I am still staying on track with my Reading the Bible in 90 days, I have a hard time on the weekends but play catch up during the week.  I am finding out interesting things and for sure will have to try this again in the future and actually use the guide that I bought to really focus on the reading.  I believe that now that I have gotten out of the family tree section of the bible it will go eaiser-- I am into the Psalms and enjoying it much more!

I read "Eat, Pray, Love" and really enjoyed it, so I bought the movie and am very glad I read the book first or I don't think I would have know what was going on in the movie.  But I did enjoy them both!!!  I am looking forward to the summer movies-- especially the Thor and Captain America!

So I am trying a little more with blogging-- so check out the upcoming pages!
Have a great rest of the month!

January 2010

So I have been on a strange kick lately...
I am presently reading "Eat, Pray, Love" and enjoying it and I have joined an online group to read the Bible in 90 days and so far am on day 9.  Finding it hard to get thru the start of the Old Testament, but plugging along.  I think my incident has tested me to take a look at myself, my faith and my wants.  I have lots of goals for this year and am hoping against hope that I can complete them! 
Oh, anyone reading this-- can you tell me how to get more pictures to add-- apparently it won't let me and I don't truly want to delete any.  So any ideas or clue ... let me know!
