When no one is looking this sweet faced boy goes from this:
That's right folks after spending the better part of the afternoon tidying his bedroom I went downstairs to make dinner. When I came back up to let them know it was ready this is what I found. That little stinker dumped almost and entire bottle of powder all over his train table and body! He walked over to his dresser and grabbed a wipe from the container and said "here mommy, here's a wipe". I then made him stand in the crime scene so I could take a photo........
I have been a busy little elf trying my darnedest to get my crafts finished. I'm not doing bad.
I decided to also try and crochet a tree skirt in the midst of everything else. I am not going to kill myself though, if it gets finished this year great, otherwise there is always next year!
And finally here is a shot of the "Cismas" tree, as Tripp calls it, after he had his hand at decorating it. Thank goodness for shatter proof ornaments. Hmmmm bet you would never guess how tall he is....
I hope you and your family are having a great holiday season!
A fun little scarf for the cold weather I just listed in the shop.
Man I have really been enjoying crocheting lately. Quick little projects at night are so satisfying!
** In other news school has been going good here and the kids are still enjoying it. We have been doing school while listening to Christmas music. I am hoping to have "Christmas" (as Tripp calls anything decorated for Christmas) up around the house by the end of the weekend. Now if only we could get a week of snow the week before Christmas, that would be AWESOME!!
Yes all you blog followers the day has finally arrived..........
The lil' Lemondrop
has arrived home, slide show to follow in a day! Props to me for driving it the whole way home, 8hrs, 3 kids, 1 scruffy dog, and an awesome Dad for moral support. She is resting happily in my driveway tonight and I can't wait to doll her up finally.
I wanted to post a photo of the giveaway item. So here it is right before it was delivered to the lucky winner: And here she is in her winnings...I "worked my magic" very little she is just that darn pretty......

I needed a few more photos taken for a new listing I am putting in my shop. My girlfriend LeAnne took the ones of my cuff bracelets and today I called on Sonya. Making her debut on my blog.....Sonya!! They turned out great, thanks for helping me out :) **"friend" photo by Avery
It was his birthday and he had a blast!! The question who ate who? Things moved quickly from this To this.....The smoke from the campfire was unyielding and the wind was relentless. This made for a not so fun campfire experience. This girl had soccer on Sat morning and she made a goal(well she always makes a goal) and she loves camping Please notice the boy in the green shirt in the tree....why yes that is Keegan in a tree again. I swear he should have been a monkey. The kid without the shirt is not mine, but a friend. Piper had to be embarrassed and wear those booties that you see lying there in the photo. The sand spurs were TERRIBLE they alone have made me never want to camp at this state park again. After a HOT Friday night and Saturday afternoon we woke up to a windy cold Sunday. These are the friends we went with, and Avery.
Lesson 1: Never camp at fIrst LanDing state park again, unless we have no kids or animals along. Lesson 2: Never camp again with out the Lil' Lemondrop, does this really need an explanation?????? Lesson 3: Refer back to 1 and 2. Lesson 4: Make sure everyone is on the same page as you when it comes to cooking and being prepared......
Other than that there were memories made and some fun times had. Oh yeah one thing on the plus side, the shower rooms were nice so I give them an A+
***Delena Thank you so much for my lovely surprise in the mail. Your kind words were much needed and appreciated more than you will ever know!!!
For the last month or so things haven't been the greatest for me. I have had a lot to deal with internally. I am still prayerfully dealing with these private matters, but in the mean time I have finally caught my second wind. I have allowed school to slack just getting by doing math and spelling most days, but no more. Tomorrow I will be going at it head first. I need to start putting the pieces back together so my life is something that I recognize. The rest I am leaving to the Lord to get back on track. I thank Him daily for the great friends(who have become my family)that I have to lean on and listen and care so big it makes me emotional to think about. I am so glad I serve and awesome God whom I can run to in all the peaks and valleys of my life. It is truly humbling to know His love and understanding never ceases!!!
A side by side of me and my mom. Although my dad would like nothing more than for one of us to look like him, we all seem to resemble my mom. With the exception of my freckles....those I get from my Daddy!!!
I love the Lord!I am a proud wife and mom of three beautiful blessings. I love to crochet, sew and do all things crafty. I am a budding photographer. I have dreams of a photography business one day. I am a hairstylist by trade. I love my vintage 1965 Shasta Compact, lovingly named Lil Lemondrop.
