These drawings are in my stamp room. Emily drew the 1st and 3rd picture when she was about 5 years old I think. She drew them in art camp over the summer. Nicholas drew the picture in the middle at school when he was about 7. I have them hanging in my stamp room. Now the kids are 16 and 13. Aren't they cute????
Danny Goke - I know its still early in the season but I like him the best out of all of the contestants so far!!
My old dear friend Laura from Indiana made me this quilt many years ago. She recently "found" my blog and emailed me and now we are back in touch after about 15 or so years. I know its been a long, long, long time!! Anyway, I told her I still have the quilt she made me about 20 years ago and she didn't remember what quilt it was so Laura, this photo is for you to see if you remember making it for me. And yes, I think I do remember it being one of the first ones you had ever sewn and I remember being very impressed!!! I still love it and its like brand new!!

I keep my snowman plates out until Valentine's Day. They are not really "Christmasy" so I leave them out since its still winter. But I figure once Valentine's Day comes, we start warming up a bit (not alot, just a bit) so I put away my snowman plates till the holidays roll around again and bring out my everyday plates :).

Scroll down to see what looks like is on fire. LOL DH was cooking steaks on the grill and when I came outside to take a photo, he was using this water sprayer and the fire went real high, so I snapped the photo just then when the fire went up and got this cool shot.
Here is the finished product. Mmmm, they were really good too!!!

Its only January but we are having really nice weather right now so i dragged out my flip flops and decided why not take a photo? You will see my favorite brand of flip flops is called Rainbows. They are the best. I have them in green, yellow, brown and black. Next I want them in red. But they are hard to find in red so I have to keep looking.
Everyone knows we have 2 springer spaniels but no one seems to know we have 2 goldfish too. Emily won these at the county fair 2 years ago. That big one just keeps growing but we refuse to get a bigger tank. He will have to make do in this tank. lol

Charlie took this photo of Emily, Nicholas and I when it snowed. I changed it to black & white using Picasa 3 (I downloaded the program for free). This program is real easy to use and even "I" can figure out how to alter the photos when I need it to.

You can see my tulips (or are they daffodils?) poking even more way through the flowerbed. The snow has melted and these have survived. Now that we've had 1 day of snow, we can have Spring now. Its going to be near 70 degrees today and tomorrow. Time to get out the shorts and flip flops, of course!!

We do not get too much snow in Concord, NC. So when it does snow, the whole town gets excited to see the white stuff coming down. This started last night around 7 pm but it only snowed for 2 minutes. Went to bed and they were saying no accumulation was expected. Its 5 am and I woke up to WHITE SNOW EVERYWHERE. I bet we have about 3" or so. School has been cancelled for the day so out come the sleds as soon as the kids get up. I will take more photos when its light out. For now, I am going back to bed!!!

I came across this magazine that I was in and wanted to share it as my photo of the day. (That is NOT me on the cover doing the dive!!!!) ha
In September of 1994, I found out I was pregnant with Nicholas. One day on Prodigy, I started a message board topic called "Pregnant Due May 1995". 20 of us joined. One of the girls who joined worked at a large advertising firm and they did an article on us. This seems so long ago (14 years ago). After our babies were born, we became "Babies born May 1995" and we all met in Washington DC for a one year old birthday party for the babies. (Not all 20 people came but I think 10 of us did) It was fun!
This magazine went out of production shortly after this issue came out. LOL
