Hello again

I want to be blogging again! I want to write but am considering doin it anonymously... Is that weird? I may keep this as a public family blog and start something else here or switch to Wordpress. I am not sure what the difference is and I see they both have apps to help post from your phone which seems to be in y hand all the time anyway. I find myself writing a lot lately on my notepad app that is on my phone so it made me think of blogging again. More for myself his time than anything else.

Just an update to say I am making progress on my apron. I am making 2 (one for the littlest sis and one for me). I'm am using my apron as the guinea pig to see if I can make sense of it all. I have gathered the ruffle and started sewing the ties.... have to figure out how to attach them to the waist band. This is going to  be interesting without a directions, but I think I am getting a handle on how it is possible to put it together. NOW that doesn't mean that it's the way the directions would have had me do it! I will be tackling a little more tomorrow.Crossing my fingers I don't screw it up!

file this in: Want to.....but will i?

Want to make this old school apron pattern i have had laying around with the fabric leftover from the bag my mom made for Beka. The problem is I have the pattern pieces but no instructions... seems like a no brainer but i know whenever i think that its harder than it looks! haha ...i will have to find some time when the family isn't in need so my a.d.d. brain can focus on it !

Summer Vacation

Well, this is the backwards version of our summer which only makes sense since its fall and I am finally posting this. Just wanted to try out my new look my sister made on my blog.anyway we stopped at in n out on our way out of california after missing almost every exit for the place we finally found one to stop at and enjoy.
so if this was in the proper order you would know why these people(dan with his girls and brothers nevan and dillon and dan sr.) have that crazed look in their eyes.... it was one of the main reasons we went to california (besides to see all you other wonderful friends and family)......
now you know,,,it was the sugar rushin through their veins. We went to celebrate the Dan sr.'s birthday.
We packed up our mp3 players and headed down to california to enjoy some

time relaxin by the pool and enjoying the sunshine. Thanks to all our host families for the kindness and food, lots of food!!!
Have you ever tried this? Mary made it for me one day. Now I know it sounds weird but instead of a lemon or a lime in your water you put a cucumber. I have found that 1 slice is plenty and boyyyyy is it refreshing. It was one of my favorite things this summer to beat the heat.(also good for the digestion)

Tulip Festival

These pics are a little late but I lost the CD they were on. We went to the Tulip Festival this year with some homeschool friends! It was amazingly beautiful! My friend Ellen took her kids and us on this fun field trip.
Great picture captured by Beka! She loves to get interesting photos!

Here are a couple of me and the girls. Sorry they are sidways but I was taking them off the disc and can't turn them cuz they arent in my photo program yet. So get your neck stretch on for a couple minutes. You'll feel so relaxed after!!! heehee *8)
