    green apple…

    thinking of getting this for the kids bathroom…

    love that you can have two sinks in such a small bath and the green apple color makes you want to go brush your teeth and smile at yourself, both good things for the kiddos in my book!

    may you be blessed

    drive you bananas…

    I am so mad at myself for not taking a picture of these first-day-of-school teacher gifts.

    Imagine the eyes on the monkeys done, tied with a Starbucks card and a cute red  ribbon with the note that says…

    “Hope my little monkey doesn’t drive you bananas this year!”

    (Gummy bananas are from William Sonoma and are as delicious as they are cute!)

    Hope you can imagine it, they were cute, honest!

    may you be blessed

    hidden love…

    I’m baaaaack! Whhile I wasn’t really “gone” on some fancy vacation but rather gone from my computer, the best vacation there is, to be honest! I was busy enjoying the last minutes of summer with my kiddos and busy making/updating their scrapbooks with them…

    and busy washing, ironing and sewing “love” into their school uniforms…

    yes sewing love, hidden love…

    I started it when misterN went to kinder, never thinking that I would still be doing it 5 years later but alas I am, happily. When both kiddos looked at me with wide innocent eyes and hollered “yes” to my question of should I still sew in love? I willingly obliged and hid some other smiles among their uniforms as well. Wonder if they will have hidden love in their college cap and gown? I am thinking yes!

    and busy making space for homework projects, good work boards, backpacks, Spanish bags, piano bags and positive notes…

    and the accessory area for missE, not to be confused with her many jewelry boxes!

    and much much more…this was just in between the fun!

     may you be blessed

    on vacation…

    until further notice! enjoying the last moments with my family before school overtakes our home and lives again…

    bright ideas..

    Talk about a bright idea, I am wanting this but debating on whether it would give my kids the wrong idea ~ knowing my kids it would trigger so many experiments and trips to ER that I do believe I will hold off until they are older.

    This makes me smile.

    may you be blessed

    sew good…

    Golly, I wish I knew how to solve my computer problems without simply buyinga new one! I have had people over to try and fix it’s slooooowness and it’s wacky settings that seem to set themselves every other week, to no avail…my computer has a mind of it’s own. We (me and the computer) are trying to work it out but well, it isn’t looking so good for one of us!

    In the meantime we are sewing…making baby blankets and prayer quilts for our little friend missR who is still in Children’s Hospital and baffling the doctors. Prayers for her and her family are appreciated, she is just a few weeks old and is in proving to be a fighter.

    Yup, that’s the Monopoly game still going on in the background, and the wood for the stairs that I’m debating on leaning against the wall and their great-grandma’s suitcase filled with treasures peeking out. I think the backgrounds always tell more of a story than the subject!

    may you be blessed

    I adore this table, you may not “see” why yet but squint and imagine it painted white in between my soon to be newly recovered chairs!

    may you be blessed

    young one…

    misterN capture this the other day at the ranch ~

    I must admit I’m impressed, for a 10 yr old he’s got quite an eye.

     may you be blessed

    second home has wheels…

    There is nothing fancy about my life…as a matter of fact our “second home” is a trailer that we park at a ranch for the summer.

    I honestly don’t think the kids realize just how much “better” it could be. So, taking a cue from the smart young ones, I will simply say…

    it doesn’t get “better” than this.

    may you be blessed

    road trip basket…

    I made a little road trip basket for my nephewN’s upcoming…wait for it

    …road trip. Complete with his own epic road trip liquid and call ur mom band-aids! Be safe N and take lots of pics!

    my you be blessed

    before and after…

    I have always wanted my kids to have a garden, be one with nature and see where food comes from because I never did. As a matter of fact, when I took my first plane ride (age13) to South Dakota in order to stay with my AuntR and UncleH on there bazillion-acre farm I was beyond speechless.

    The story of me running to get my purse and proper sandals because my AuntR said she was going out to get potatoes and would I like to come? continues to haunt me today.

    “YES, wait for me,” I hollered as I bolted into the house, not believing my luck that we were going “into town” today! “I’m comiiiiiiing, don’t leave, don’t leave, don’t leave,” I continued to shout as I quickly ran a brush through my hair while dashing back downstairs only to find my AuntR standing there with a grin. “Let’s go” she said and led me out the door and INTO THE GARDEN.

    “What?!?! Aren’t we going to get potatoes?” I asked completely confused. “Of course we are, where do you think potatoes come?” from she questioned me like I was 3 instead of 13. “Vons, they come from Vons.” I replied proud to answer her silly question and quite ready to get into town. She responded by laughing and pointing to the dirt which we were now standing in, ” No, honey, they come from the ground.”   

    Stunned into bewildered silence I simply stood staring and waiting for the punchline. It never came.

    I can still feel the disappointment today. No car ride to “town” no new lip gloss from Dell Rapids, just more dirt and now I had to actually dig in it so we could eat dinner tonight. I was not dressed for digging, I was dressed for shopping.

    That was how I learned where potatoes come from and why I needed my kids to have a garden, some sort of a garden so they too could learn that potatoes do not actually come from Vons.

    So, we made raised planter beds (and by we I mean “the mister”) and we cleared out the neglected rose garden (and by we I mean the kids) and we relocated a zillion rosebushes (and by “we” I mean… well you know)

    and eventually we (and by we I mean me too!) finally got our garden! 

    our garden “before”

    and “after”

    “We” also learned that some plants give you one thing, like ONE ear of corn, seriously, one ear?!? who knew?? 

    While others give you an abundance, hope everyone likes watermelon, cantaloupe and pumpkins.

    may you be blessed
