A Bella Card :)

This is a card I made a few weeks ago, The Stamped Image is is from Stampin Bella and it's called superbella. I do not have this stamp yet, some very nice ladies from my bella group shared it with me. I figure this card will go to Ashley's teacher sometime this year :)

Our First Camp Fire Camp :)

Ashley and I had our very first camp with Camp Fire. We all camped at Lake Murray group camp one, Each group was assigned a cabin for the weekend. since Ashley and I were the only ones from our group to attend we got a small cabin all to ourselves.We had a great weekend, We had so much fun and met so many great people and made so many new friends.

We got there on friday at 5:30pm. got settled into our cabins and we had our little carnival at 8pm then we sang some songs and returned to our cabins for the night.

saturday we had flag raising, breakfast, craft class (turkey), nature class (tracks book), fitness (zumba which was sooooo fun), BB gun shooting class, then we had dinner, lowering the flag, some free time which Ashley I joined some other girls in their cabin and they danced, jumped rope, painted fingernails. Then that night we had campfire council, a traditional even for camp fire, everyone walked in silence to the water front and we circled the camp fire and even sat around for lots of fun camp fire songs.

Sunday was flag raising, breakfast, then canoeing, I had to say Ashley really surprised me, She's always so scared of trying new things, I thought for sure she wouldn't canoe but she did and she LOVED it :) then we did our flag lowering and it was time for home :) We were sad to leave, We had such a great time :)

Here are some photo's from our awesome weekend!

Whew! Just sitting down from some morning cleaning. It never really ends, just the basic cleaning, so when you do that on top of some deep cleaning it can wipe you out :)

Jake and Abbey came home Saturday from their trip to Washington. They went to visit with Grandpa and Family, Jake's Grandpa has lung cancer, her's been going thru chemo and radiation so Jake wanted to go up to see him and since Abbey can still take a seat in his lap on the plane she went along. They had a nice visit, I missed them terribly & am glad to have them back home.

This next weekend we go to our very first camp fire camp out, Ashley and I. We are really looking forward to it, I think we're going to have a fantastic time :) I'm sure I'll have lots of photo's to share from that.

I finished another of solmama's dishclothes....The Dash Cloth

and I also finished Ashley's lopi tote for her to carry her leapster in :)

Not a lot else going on I don't guess :)
Until next time :)

Pumpkin Time :)

I never remember carving a pumpkin. Mom said Dad mostly did it when we were little but that there was one time they let us do our own :) We have never carved Pumkins as a family. This year Jake bought pumpkins he wanted us to carve together as a family. So yesterday evening that's just what we did. It was a lot of fun, They turned out so cute, This will be a family tradition each year I think :) here are the photo's from our pumpkin carving fun :)

Camp Fire!

Awhile back I'd signed Ashley up for Camp Fire, I thought it would be something fun she could do to learn and make more friends, I also thought it would be fun things I could do with her as well. I bought a family membership. I was in camp fire for a short time growing up and I have fond memories of camping and the craft activities.

We started our meetings last week... here are a few photo's from this week and last week, She really enjoys it already :) She's looking forward to camping :)

I'll admit it, I'm 33 years old and I've never voted. It's terrible that I've never exercised this right that my country men and women fought so hard to give me. I've never followed politics much or been involved in learning about the candidates... but this year I'm informing myself and I'm voting. I'm stepping up because the possible future of our country scares me and I want to use my voice, and to give them my opinion so if you don't vote... you should, go here and register to vote deadlines to register are approaching and some have already passed . . . .

Scrap Pink

On September 26th I headed down to Arlington, TX to my friend Susan's house, We had a great evening of Joann's shopping and Panda Express for dinner. It's always great to meet up with Susan, we always have so much fun, She's just an upbeat and funny person to be around. The next day we were to join the Scrap Pink event. A crop from 10am to 10pm. Part of the proceeds going to the Susan G Komen foundation.

Dusan and I had a fantastic time and met and made some wonderful new friends! Everyone was so nice! Danette was supposed to be there with us but she had a bit of an accident and couldn't come. We sure missed her being there though.

Here are some of our pictures from Scrap Pink.
This is the contents of our goodie bag, minus the t-shirt :)
