Pop Art

I have always loved Andy Warhol's work. He is awesome. So we had an assignment to take pictures of our world so I took this picture of me behind the camera (because that is where I am always at). We were told to take one of our pictures and alter it anyway. We have to print and turn in the before and after photos. Naturally I turned mine into Pop Art (I learned how in my class) What do you think???

What a weekend!

I made 4 cakes this weekend. I am ready to have a little cake makin' time off. I bought a bike trailer this weekend. I am so excited because I have been wanting one forever. Nate loves it. He just sets back there and looks all around while we are riding. But let me tell ya'...pulling that extra 35 pounds is kickin' my butt. Man I am out of shape. I finally got Nates big wheel put together yesterday too. He got it for his birthday this week. Talk about the Playground PIMP! I think this is absolutely hilarious. I can't wait to scrap this picture!! Here's to a good week...I hope. Maybe it won't be raining every minute!!

Somebody Please Tell Me

Please tell me, "When did this happen?" When did my innocent precious baby boy turn into a ornery, precious beautiful little man?? I can't hardly believe that he is 3 today!! It doesn't seem possible. Plus the fact that this is my LAST baby doesn't help. We celebrated his birthday on Saturday. I rented a huge blow up jump thing for 4 hours and the kids had a BLAST. I couldn't hardly get them out of it to open presents and eat cake. There were 8 kids there. Nate got some new toys and has really been occupied the last couple of days with them. That has been great. Especially since we haven't had any WATER over here in our big town. Now that the water is back I am having to boil it just to do ANYTHING with it! I am tired of it. Just lets you know how much we take things for granted in life. Oh well...here's to a busy week. Talk to you peeps later!!

Rainy Days

Is anybody else ready for fall? I love the fall weather. I have to say I believe it is my favorite time of the year. It could stay 55-75 all the time and I would be fine! I do know that I am tired of this weather constantly changing because it is messing with my allergies SSOOOOO bad. I had to go to the doctor yesterday and get an allergy shot. My butt is still feelin' it too! Nothing else much going on. You can tell we are back into the swing of things with school. Last night we were practicing Tori's spelling words and man are they big words for the 3rd grade! Like adventerous, presentation, and some other big ones I can't remember right now. She is a really good speller though and she was doing great. I can't wait to see how her test is today. Anyways...don't melt out their today!!! Lator Gators!!!
