  • It’s been birthday central around our house this week! Izzy turned 5 on Thursday, I posted pics of her birthday here.
  • Bailey & Emelia have been spending the week riding bikes and skateboards. They are enjoying the summer … and swimming…
  • the stupid pool has had issues all Summer, from all the rain. I took the water to be analyzed and they told me to sit down. It’s a pain to deal with considering everything, but we made the choice to not ‘blame’ the pool. We had a fence put around it and now the kids swim daily. Anyway, it is back to normal and was ready for Amanda and her friends to take a late night swim after our outing.
  • Amanda’s birthday was Saturday! Matt & I took her and her friends to see “Hairspray” and then to eat at Olive Garden. It was a fun outing for all of us! The movie was so fun and the food was great too. Here are some pics … I’ll try to post more tomorrow when I have time to sort through them all…
Amanda’s hair (I fixed it for her birthday outing)

  • I tried two new recipes this week… the first one was cheesy chicken empanadas and I learned that refrigerated pie crust is not the same as frozen… I made a batch that was disastrous and then used little pillsbury biscuits rolled out thin for the rest which were wonderful.
  • Barb posted the other recipe for a chicken spinach pasta, it was a hit! We had it a couple of times this weekend because it made a ton!!!


  • I’ve been up to my ears in siggies. It’s fun though and I just hope everyone is happy with what they get.
  • My buddy Judi send birthday presents for me, amanda, and izzy! She sent the cutest bookmark (I am going to take a pic, I just wanted to get this written but it looks like a necklace almost, beaded on both ends) and Izzy a little angel that says her name, and Amanda a cute notebook with an “A” on it. So sweet, thanks Judi!
  • I also got a goodmail postcard all the way from Arizona. Thanks Lauren!
  • I got good mail! Kayelyn sent me a sweet pack of birthday goodness! I love goodmail!
  • I won some things… something knitted and something cellophanish… I’ll post pics and links when I get them.
  • Got some fun awards from Kim & K.C.!
  • Happy birthday Jenny (on Tuesday)!!!!
  • I feel like I’m forgetting something, but I have to wrap this post up to get ready for church… oh church… I’ll post about that later.


  • finding a new church home!
  • birthday girls.
  • Matt
  • sunshine
  • fun mail
  • God’s love
  • good friends
  • YOU!

Thanks Judi for hosting WR, love wrapping up the week this way!

I saw you were over at Michelle’s “Big Blueberry Eyes”, her birthday is August 1st. Let’s bless her with lots of love and greetings. I must get your address if that is OK with you, I want to send a wee package over to you…will be a bit late for your birthday as I will be away later this week, but the wishes will be the same!

Wow busy week! I just wanted to drop by and let you know that someone from our local homeschool group posted info about near drownings and linked to Izzy’s blog. I knew that you would be happy that the info was put out there so other’s would know!

Have a good week!!

The pasta is good enough to fix again, love winners like that.

I can’t wait to see Hairspray. Gotta wait til it’s on DVD since Levi’s too young for Libby to watch.

Glad Amanda had a nice birrthday!
