Caught Melia watching cartoons early one morning....gotta love summer time!

Here we are at home depot getting started on the deck. Melia loves the orange carts. I missed the picture, but she was hanging upside down for a while

Day 207

I gotta love a clean pantry!

Day 206

Here we go...getting started on these invitations. Waiting on ribbon...grr

Day 205

Melia loves playing in this dirt totally ruins her clothes, so it's not off limits. (notice the snow boots)

Day 204

This is what I use to do my stomach cruches....I hate this ball...;)

Day 203

We went to the Sand Dunes for the first time this year. I wasn't sure I was going to be able to go very far. Not much energy these days, with being an old pregnant woman. The water was still flowing a little bit (which is unheard of this time of year). We had a picnic, hiked to the visitor's center (then Todd came and picked me up) and we played in the water just a little. It was a fun afternoon!

Day 202

Silly little kitty...

Day 201

Today is my 43rd birthday. Melia and Todd went through and got me a really cool electronic picture frame. It is small and fits in my purse and runs on a battery. A very cool "brag book"

Day 200

Just snap shots of my life...this is my very old bedside dresser...messy as usual! There is a bank Melia made me (the cardboard), a box of Premiere Jewlery, one of my favorite pictures of Melia and of course Bath and Body Works lotion!

Day 199

The actual invitation they to get them all made!

Day 198

Another look at the flower garden...have to take many pictures as it doesn't last very long here in the valley.

Day 197

We met a high school friend at the Chyenne Mountain Zoo for the day! Angie has the most adorable little was a great day!

Day 196

Harry Potter opened tonight! We drove to a little town about 20 miles away that never has lines...and had to wait in line! Liked the movie...not my favorite, but I do like the Potter movies!

Day 195

Melia started swimming lessons. She is taking private lessons with the PE teacher from Evans. Brett Hinkhouse....he is really good with her.

Day 194

The New Life Campus.....

Day 193

Todd and I went to a Walmart get together and stayed in the Springs over night so we could go to church at New Life...this is the view from our hotel room.

Another sweet award

This award comes from Denise...I love reading her blog! She has sure kept up with P365 this year, and puts my blog to shame with her updated posts! Thanks so much my MB friend!

I also want to leave this for some sweet people in my life....




I know there are more....I have to think and contiue to add names. I'm trying to do this from memory....such a dangerous thing to do while I'm in a prenatal state!

Blog Awards....

I've received a couple of blog awards from some really great friends! This one comes from Bridget from P365. What a great friend she has become in the last 8 months...have we really been taking pictures that long? I also want to send this on to some of my other wonderful friends....

day 191...really

The invitation creation process begins. This is the first idea I came up with. The wedding colors are black and white with a touch of pink here and there.

Day 190...not

This is actually a picture of the 4th of July, but there were so many pictures from vacation I wanted to put in my P365 album, I off a little bit. This would acutally be taken on day185, but is ending up here the ability to make this album what I want it to be

We went to the city fireworks display with full intentions of sitting in the bed of the pickup and watching....then it started to rain, so the blankets went over our heads instead of under us...then it started to pour and Todd and Melia (the smart ones) got into the front of the truck and Taylor and I stayed in the bed...until the water started to run down at us from the tailgate...boy were we wet! It was great fun and I was laughing so hard nearly couldn't climb into the pickup cab...great memories! Melia took this picture.

Day 189

We got home and unpacked...looks as though Petri doesn't want to get left behind next time. It's so good to be home!

Day 188

On our way home we ate at the Outback. Todd is famous for using at least 1/2 the bottle of Heinze 57 at all I guess his reputation preceeded him...this is all he got for his steak! Melia about rolled on the floor and demanded I take this for the PTOD.

Day 187

On our way home we saw something you can only see in Arkansas! A live bait vending machine...had to get a picture of this one. This was on our way home at a gas station.

Day 186

These are the beautiful houses we lived in for the time we were at the lake. The first picture is of the living area at the main house. The 2nd picture is of the guest house, where the girl stayed.

Day 185

Today the boys all went on a guided fishing trip. The were fishing for strippers. It was a long day, and according to the guides not a great day of fishing, but we were pleased with 40lbs of fish.

Day 184

My scuba boys. We try to get scuba gear each time we come to Beaver Lake. Those of us who are certified, like to play now and again. Someday we'll go on a real scuba trip, but need to get the other kids certified. Todd, Tatum and Kerry are getting ready to go.

Day 183

This is a picture of the whole crew. All our kids and their friends and our grandson! The photo is blurry, but the only one I have.

Day 182

We went and had "huge" ice cream cones....that was really an understatement! A little gas station sells these. Then it was off to see Transformers!
