This is It

If you are a Michael Jackson fan at all,
let me encourage you to go see the film, This is It.
Josh and I went to see it last night on my birthday date
and it was really interesting and entertaining.

Our Little Lance Armstrong~

So Zachary has had a busy weekend! He's been doing a great job on his "no-training-wheels" bike lessons.
(Josh has had a lot of exercise this weekend too!)

Daddy's hand steadying the bike~

A pep talk~

Pay no attention to little brother who just like to tootle around on his big wheel chewing gum and singing Love Shack ~

And in the end....success!

One of the joys of living in The Woodlands, is all the critters we get to experience.
We've had raccoons, every bug you can possibly imagine, a possum (dead; trapped in the fence), snakes and mosquitos the size of trucks.

Our newest find:

This dear little widow was found on the back of Lucas' tricycle in the garage.


And please remember.... do not stand up on the back of a tricycle.

Check it out, but be sure and use the potty before you do, lest you laugh too hard.
It is a site to view funny family photos and letters/emails, and some of them are hysterical!

I'm thinking of submitting this little doosie taken on our honeymoon 10 yrs ago.

What are your awkward photos/stories?

Breakfast Suits

"Mommy, Why are you wearing your breakfast suit?"
That's what Lucas asked me a few nights ago when I had put my nightgown on early in the evening. He's accustomed to only seeing me in my "breakfast suit" early in the morning when I slump into the kitchen and toss a granola bar and some fruit his way.

I'll spare you the horror show that is me in said nightgown and move on to this cute little picture:

This is Zachary and Lucas at Grammy and Paw-Paw's house making cookies. Not sure what Lucas is adding to that cookie dough, but those may or may not be chocolate chips. Just saying.

For all of you cookie dough addicts....

Yes, those are cupcakes iced with cookie dough!

If you prefer the raw cookie dough to the baked cookies, then this recipe may be for you.

You can find the recipe here (one of my fav. food blogs!)

I made cupcakes instead of brownies, and WOW, were they delicious!

Refrigerate the iced cupcakes/brownies to let the dough stiffen a little.

Sharing my good news....

I am honored to announce that I was chosen as the July 19 guest designer for Digital Delights! I am already brainstorming on what exactly I want to make with the adorable images that Wendy sent my way this morning! Thanks to Wendy and the Design Team for this privilege!

I finished a new card tonight that is in honor of my sister, Jennifer.
I am entering it in a card contest at a local paper/scrapbook store called That Absolutely Fabulous Paper Emporium (on Hwy 2920 in Spring, TX)
Public voting on all the entries is July 28-Aug 8. If you happen to live in Spring, I would love for you to hop into the store and take a look (and would love your vote as well! )

I am also entering this card in 2 online challenges: : 3 different embellishments (in this case: ribbon, mini frame, and beads) Favorite things (in this case~ my new favorite digital stamp)

The stamp is "Innocence 004" purchased here.
I have hand beaded the center of the flowers as well as the circles on the little girl's dress.
