As promised!

Yay Disneyland! I find it funny how I went three times this summer within like a month and a half and I still would love to go back again any old time soon if I could.(as in had the $$) haha

So my third trip was taken with B & C, and Dad, we had a good day other than it being very very hot, but luckily Disneyland has lots of places to hide out from the heat for a while so we made it. heh

So now its picture time!

The day was started with some yummy mickey pancakes and healthy dose of syrup!

As well as some good slapstick comedy! (No I didn't actually poke him in the eye!)


After surviving some bad jokes in the jungle, going back in time, putting our lives in the hands of Ben's crazy adventurous driving and few other fun  things...

We had some lunch!

Er..I mean we had a snack! heh

After running around the island we cooled off with a nice mint julip! Yummy!

Aww like home!

Catherine was kind enough to remove something from Emperor Zurgs teeth. 

Aww Ariel.
Big band and swing dancing at the Carnation Plaza. :]
Sea of legs. Whoo did we got fast.
And a good day was had by all!
PS Sorry for getting a little lazy towards the end...blogger wasn't being my friend...haha

Old Photo Sunday on Tuesday

This is a photo from the "unknown" photo box. We sure wish we knew who she was, but look at those beautiful flowers!

Anybody have any guesses of who she is or any good story ideas about her?

Nine-patch quilt

Today I received a card in the mail with a beautiful nine-patch quilt on it. I said to myself, I am gonna make THAT quilt. This is the first time since the flood that I have HAD that feeling. I "played" like I was making a quilt last Christmas. I was really learning how to use the machine. But this was the first time I had that full "lets get going in this" feeling. Funny how time takes you through many passages. I was really happy to go through this passage once again. Now to find that little spot in my day to pursue a pleasure.

Uh Oh I better catch up!

I'm back too I'm back TOO!
Okay...Well...I really have no excuse for not blogging these past few months other than wanting to wait until Mom was ready to start again. I had no setbacks like her...I was just lazy and uninspired. Yes how dare me. heh

So here's what I have to share with you tonight.

This here is the reason I haven't gone to bed yet. I can't stop watching her sleep! She's sooo cute. hahah
So coming soon should be a nice little blog about my last Disneyland trip. YES, get excited! Yay!

I couldn't believe that it has only been 2 months since we last posted. It seems like a lot more. First it was because of the computer not working, then the time it took to purchase a new one, then the time to relearn the whole mess. But here I am.

Today, Nora and I went shopping, something that we have not done alot of lately. Afterward we watched the sunset in our favorite spot. When we returned we found Tom in the garage. Moving things around, oh me. But it worked out.

So here it is my big return to our Blog. Hopefully you haven't given up on us. More Sunday Photos to come for sure.
