Last day of July!

Last weekend was nice..we went to The Shack to eat...oh so yummy!!! I had plans of getting a picture of the place but that didn't happen. In the parking spot we were too close and well when we left DH just kept driving so as close as I have is FT enjoying his burger.
I also finally got my etsy shop opened! Wish me luck!! My latest is a matching set for a girl and her doll.

A couple of pictures from this week first we have pillow buddy! He stuffed his pillow into his shirt, you can't really tell it here but it looks like it has cute stubby arms.
Then we have FT napping with his favorite little prize from his trip to the dentist..a pair of slippers from the dollar store! We went for a car and he made out with a little truck (the wheels won't stay on it) a cool book, and this pair of shabby slippers with pictures of cars on them! It was hard to find a pair that didn't have a gaping hole so I don't expect them to stay together long but as you can see he just loves them!
The trip to the dentist could not have went smoother!! Before we left I told his dad we are off to get his tooth fixed then to buy a car..he tells me, "I don't think it is going to be THAT easy." Umm I do!! And it was. True he didn't want to open his mouth for the doctor but he has been in pain for over a week so I kept reminding him we was going to go get it fixed so I felt like it would go smoothly and it did! They were so impressed with him!

Wow mid-week already!?

Last weekend was perfect!!! I scrapped and read the new Harry Potter book! Here is my favorite LO from the weekend and a picture from today..a Luna moth!! So perfect!! It was flopping around on the ground before it crawled up the tree so I suspect it just emerged from the pupa plus it was so perfect! I have never seen one without some sort of battle wound. Sadly FT kicked at it!!?? I think it will be OK I didn't notice any wing damage and it's body wasn't smashed. I told him it was a good bug so he said sorry. The picture of me was taken by him! No flash and lots of movement but it is still pretty cool!

Looking forward to the weekend and reading Harry Potter!! At least that is the plan! I guess we will pick it up first thing in the morning since one of the boys is already out....just 50 more minutes until mid-night!!!?? FT could go all night long..I wish he was the one asleep!!
Early this month ScrapLovers ask me to be a "special sweetheart" so I HAD to scrap yesterday. It felt so good and made me so happy. I really need to find more time to do it. I also need to find more time to upload my photo a day. Sorry Valerie!! I have been snapping away but I don't feel like resizing right now so I am uploading what I made for SL.
This week has been interesting...last Sunday night poor FT got hit by David...not sure what happened but big brother was in the room, David had a BIG bottle of lotion and a "noise" was heard and FT screamed. I really didn't know even where he was hurting but then the next evening his cap feel off of his tooth!??? Poor babe!! I thought maybe it was the apple he just had but he told me that David threw lotion at him so that would explain the pop Michael heard. I called the dentist...DR and staff are NOT in this week!!?? My poor babe has to wait until next Thursday to have it looked at and it hurts!! He keeps chewing on his arm.

What a fun day!

It was the 4th Annual ACP Pajama Party today! It was a blast!!! The guys are so very VERY funny! One of those things you would just have had to been there to understand....I am still laughing at some of the things that were said. Man I love that place! I spent waaaaaaaaaaaay too much time online but hey I did feed the family and I shared my toys nicely...see my pretty "blocks" and the snips of paper? I gave him an old invoice and he told me he wanted "pretty paper" and picked out his own from an old scrap pad. I scrapped too! Just one little card but it was a cool fun technique..check it out...http://www.acharmingplace.net/forums/showthread.php?t=9703

It's OK kitty cat

Another storm, seems like we have had one every day this week! Here you see a little scared boy trying to be brave. First he went and told big brother it was OK, then he got the cat and was patting it and saying, "it's ok kitty cat" over and over.

Have you ever done this? http://www.freecycle.org/ We have used it to give things away and today I went to pick up a "frog" hat box purse. It sounded so cute..Frog, wiggly eyes, big lips, in the grass. Ummmmmm that isn't a frog and that bamboo handle and the bamboo on the side was just begging for a panda picture so I found an image online as soon as I got home with it and went to work. I think I will put buttons in it.

Fresh from the vine!

The way it should always be. DH will not even try one...he doesn't know what he is missing. They are soooooo much better. This was from the early girl plant. I am afraid my big boy and beef steak aren't doing too well. I still have hope for them but they look really sad. Since my dad brought them to me I am really hoping they do something!

Fourth of July!

We did smoke bombs and snap n pops before dark. FT was worried about the smoke bombs but had a blast with the snap n pops! I guess it is different when you have control over it. When night time rolled around he watched the first fountain and was ready to go back in. Poor dude was so afraid! If you look closely you will see his refection in the window looking out. After it was all over he was so cute throwing his arms up and making the noise he thought they made. Mutt slept through it all..I woke him up and he even said he was sure he didn't want to watch them..well, he wasn't really awake!? Oh well he said he didn't care that he missed them. I do feel bad about it though. The other two enjoyed them!

The prize after the shots....

Poor little dude had to have two shots today. We were there for almost 2 hours...he wanted toleave and when I told him we couldn't he cried real tears. So sad!! He did get calmed down before the nurse came back. He wouldn't take off his shoes..it is hard prying shoes off of someone who wants to keep them on.... he weighs 28 pounds and is 3 feet tall! He wouldn't open his mouth for the DR but he let him look in his ears. He was a real big boy when he got his shots and didn't even cry!! The nurse was so impressed that she let him pick out a toy plus she gave him three! Bubbles, a parachute man, and a slinky..when she was pulling on the slinky she said "bubbles" so he is convinced that he should call it bubbles! He had fun blowing bubbles until he spilled the jar..then it was off to the club house to try out the parachute. That was fun watching him do that..I remember big brothers doing it all the time.

Look at all those charms!

Ugh they were all OVER the floor. Talk about mad!!! I am working away on a LO (with my door CLOSED) following this cool sketch http://www.scrap-a-latte.net/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=6717&cat=582 when my 12yo comes into the room and shuts the door behind him like a good lad, I told him on his way out to put his foot out first to make sure Panther does not come in, Well, guess what!!!??? He made it out and shut the door BUT he loves to break any and every rule so he had to pop the door back open to tell me..."I didn't put my foot out..I used my hand!" and of course the cat darts in. I have my cool bug paper all over my bed, I was looking for a bug charm, so I quickly put the container down to grab the cat...well, I put it too close to the edge and off it went. What a mess!! They were in a container all nice and neat...all my animals/bugs together, corner, sea/garden...all over and mixed together. I was so not happy. He wouldn't pick it up either. Sweet FT got my little basket and picked them all up for me. Now I just need to find the time to put them back in the right sections. Anyway, I finished the LO and manged to keep the cat off the paper!!!

July 1st

Where does the time go? I can't believe it has been over a week since I updated. I am not going to upload all thoses photos so here are a few of my favorites:

My tomatoes are growing! They have aphids now so I need to do something about those.
FT making mud puddles for dad! Isn't that sweet!!! I don't think dad believed they were really for him but he smiled real big when he told me what he was doing so I believe it.
And Panther! It is so hard to take a picture of a black cat.
