I seriously almost peed myself when I saw this pic on my sisters myspace!
My sister looks like a evil leprechaun, ( and kinda like Reese Witherspoon??)
Aunt Lisa looks so much like Grandma its scary.....
and my cousin James looks like a drunk smiley face
Man, I wish I could have been there
Love these pics of my Cousins and there families

James, Sam and Kiya, not sure where Chloe was

I tried out to be a Très Chic Girl at Scrapperie
Now for the wait.... thats the hardest part of DT calls

The gauntlet... woohooo

Yippie!!! I am still in the running!!
I am really surprised that I made it to the next round!
Its not that I didn't like my entry, I just like the one I did first (in the below post) better :)
I will have to upload my actual entry later....
so on to the next round
this time we have to do a LO inspired by a work of art
I'm using
Almond Branches in Bloom, San Remy 1890 by Van Gogh

well, I must have been really tired last night when I read the challenge for the next round of the gauntlet......
HELLO! non-living means no plants either!!
what a dork I am!
So this was supposed to be my entry for round 3.... I had to do another one
but I still really like this one!
I really wanted the photos to be the center of attention, so there is very little embellishment
and I had lots of fun stamping/painting the title

green thumb

Well I am not really sure yet if I have a green thumb, we will see soon....

got up early this morning and helped Morning get her garden planted. We got started on mine, but only got a row of sunflowers and a row of pole beans planted before it got to hot. Hopefully we can get back out there later when it cools down.

go green

Just finish the 2nd week project for the go green challenge at
this week we had to re-use something plastic, the pic below is the grunge board container that I used

The see through section is from the container
It always makes me happy to get out my paints while scrapping

farm life

This week we got some real farm experince!
took care of our neighbors animals
which means we got to learn how to milk the goat
and then bottle feed the lambs, kid, and calfs
this is Opal, our poor milking vitim..... Morning milks her in about 3mins, it took us 45mins
the kids all lined up to watch the show
Frank putting Opal in the milking stand
Morning showed Frank how to milk the night before, so he goes first
Lizzie gives it a try
Poor Opal was getting really tired of us
so I did the bulk of the milking, trying to get done quickly
(can't take pics of myself >:o) )
Hungry babies

the big girls fed the calfs

More please!!!!
