A Cross for Mya


My friend Deb from Proper Prim
has a new member to her family named Mya...she is so small and precious..I wanted to send her a gift...since Mya is an angel from above I had to add this little baby angel to the center of my horse shoe cross. I sent it off to Deb for her baby room


Mya was born pre-mature so please keep prayers for her continued health and growth...she has a wonderful grandma to love on her...

Congrats Grandma Deb...

A Day to Shop....

I always go thru the thrift stores up north...they are chock full of frun stuff and the prices are always great...way better than where I am from.

I needed some more plates, some small hangers, and what ever else I could find...look at all this fun stuff





I liked this and I think I can make this ...I love finding ideas in these places too



my trip was spent with family and friends and all kinds of people along the way not mentioned here...I head home tomorrow for the 14 hour treck...me and my puppies..
parting is always bitter sweet for me...
I cry many tears to leave , my girl , my little ones and my life long freinds.

sending one last prayer to the sky for my soldier
Sgt. Gabriel Riley

and love to may parents whom I miss dearly..

A Day of Fun with My Friend Alice

I settled in for the day to relax and have a bit of fun...this is the day when who ever wanted to see me could come to visit...and my friend Alice and I had a bit of crafting planned too...we wanted to make the wind chimes from dinner plates...  we all gathered around the kitchen table



Devin wasn't  interested after a little bit so him and mom did this



Miss Danika helped us to string some beads...she is very good at it too



we worked and talked and got our visit in..

assembling the chimes

I love to craft you all know that...but to do it with a long distant friend is a memory that will stay with me...We met many many years ago and always keep in touch..

A Day at the ZOO !!!

Yes we were off for a day at the Omaha Zoo....great idea right?...so I go in to wake up the family...they all look so comfy...lol..can you believe I was next to Danika and Bentley was at our feet...all nice and close and snuggly


then we hit the road...we run by and Picked up Hannah...remember my niece I hadn't met...well here she is ...she is adorable and looks so much like our family

heres my beautiful Girl

 

and me Driving



Hannah and Danika



Devin with his little glasses



we met up with my Cousin Lori and her girls and all her grandkids...she lives in Omaha and had free passes for the kids...always a plus...it was already starting to heat up for the day...

Hannah the Lion



and all the electric kids



onto the Desert Dome

the girls march ahead



the moms bring up the rear...already we are getting so hot...


the kids sit for a spell waiting for the rest of the group, we had about 15 of us all total


Serenity, Kegan and Hannah
cousins meeting for the first time too


then it was on to see some animals out side...HOT! outside



and we were right back inside...so hot now...almost to hot to go on....

Hannah at the Ape show


Danielle and the kids one the other window



whats next..whos idea was this...so very very HOT! outside...
so back inside to the Aquarium....this was a big hit..and so so much cooler..












ok we had enough, just  couldn't go on any longer...it is the hottest day of the summer on this day and we choose to go to the zoo..which by the way when you go in ....goes down hill so when you come out you have to go up hill....whos plan is this...actually the Omaha Zoo is a very nice zoo...we just chose the wrong day to go...so we headed to Lori's house for a visit, to get cool  and let the kids all get to play..inside in the cool ..

here are the gang of most of the kids



ok now we have to travel a hour and a half back home

this is what the kids did......

Hannah was the first to go



then there went Devin




Danika she is holding out
zoning on the DVD player



poor Devin sit him up ..so we can take his picture...
thats better



an finally Danika went for a little snooze
this means it was a very hot fun day at the zoo..



Note to self...I am not taking vacation to head north in August and expect it to be cool for fun things liks this....lol..what was I thinking!!!...REALLY!

we were together thats all that counts...
Love them all lots.
