family fun

 We haven't traveled this summer but we have had fun just being home.  Lots of family fun, gardening and creativity.  Along with a few water balloon fights.  Here is Kaitlyn doing her victory dance after getting her daddy.
 Brenton took this one without the help of my camera skills, but I like it.
 We like to sneak up on Brenton when he gets home from work with whatever ammo we can find.
He is always a good sport....he is a great dad.

i LOVE junkin....its the only "green" way I know!

 I have filled my summer with junkin' and I love every minute!  
 Great find from my latest junkin time.

 But the BEST junkin is when you find a BARGAIN!  I got all this stuff below for a whopping $3.25
 I turned the two frames into this chalkboard and "memo" board to go int my craft room.  LOVE IT SO FUN and EASY.  Watch  for the rest of my junkin reveal...coming soon....:)

Week 1 of summer blessings

We have had a great first week of summer...lots of laziness, games, ice cream, gardening, craftiness and meeting some new friends.  I am very blesssed to be home with my girlies this summer.
 We started off this week by feeding the homeless...Kenz has a heart for "hobes" as she calls them.  We always saw homeless people on the street on the way to school and she talks of growing up and buying houses for them.  I love her heart.
 oF course we can't end the first week of summer without some library time.  Kaitlyn found lots of books by her favorite author right now, Mo Willems...and Kenz has Diary of Anne Frank as soon as she finishes "Out of My Mind" by Sharon Draper.  I can not wait for our second week of summer bliss.

christmas blessings

 We had a very blessed Christmas.  We enjoyed our 1st Christmas in our new house.
 Lots of decorating and getting ready for the holidays.  Pictures, cards, food, and gifts.

 My dad came to town and our family had a Christmas brunch and enjoyed a white Christmas.
 Santa brought Kaitlyn a bike & Kenzie got a bunch of new video games.

We got the girls i-pod touches and they were so excited.  It was a great Christmas.
