Sorry about the dark pics. I thought this thing would be such a cool piece once refinished. The bench seat opens up and there is storage underneath. I didn't like the color so I am sanding everything down. I'm not too sure on what the new color will be yet, so you will have to wait to see what I decide to do with it! I'm sure you're just as excited as I am. :)

Dean's face is hilarious here. He can't decide if he should cry or laugh. :)

I think I could take pics of those big, brown eyes of hers all day long.
Oh, she is such a character. These are pretty much the only good pics I have gotten of her in the last year. Such a stubborn one!! Hopefully I can persuade her to sit for me later. Although knowing her, I'll probably have to bribe her. Stinker! :)

Paint chips from paint store
1 piece of paper
1 glue stick
Draw a rainbow on the piece of paper. Label where the colors go. Take the paint chips and cut them into little squares. Grab a glue stick. Start with the color red, glue the paint chips in place, and move onto orange. Once done, take pic of happy child with her beautiful rainbow. Free craft makes mom happy and fun craft makes child happy. :)

I couldn't resist taking pics of this cute little guy and those big eyes. I got a new camera (temporarily) that I am having a blast using and thought he would make a fun subject to take pics of. I am lucky that I get to have him at my house 1 day a week. He is so much fun!

And doesn't he look so excited about it? Since we try to eat somewhat healthy over here, the Dean got a blueberry muffin for his birthday. No pics of birthday presents, because, seriously, he is one. Ambry did choose to spend some of her own money on a gigantic ball for him. She is such a sweetheart. I will have to try to remember later to take a pic of the two of them and his birthday gift.

I need to come up with a better idea for keeping the ribbon tied so the dress will actually stay up. Any ideas are welcome! I think once I can get that fixed then it will be much cuter. Or at least I think it will be much cuter. :)

Here is our bean teepee and some of our herbs. There is lemon balm, lavender, mint, and chamomille planted along the outskirts of the teepee. We shall have to wait and see how the beans do. Some naughty rabbits got in there and managed to eat quite a few of the leaves before we put up our fence. I started the herbs in baggies before I planted them and they were doing great...until I transplanted them to the ground. So we will have to wait and see how much we actually get. The only herb that is doing good in this planter is the chamomille.
Here are some more of our herbs. In these pots are chives, cilantro, oregano, and basil. In the other big pots are jalapenos and banana peppers.
The girls and me picking strawberries. Please no comments about how I look in a bathing suit. I know it is scary. :)

Look at that happy face! He was loving having his own water to play in and being able to watch the girls too.
Check out that tongue! Hilarious! This was the easiest solution that I could come up with for him. I didn't want him getting into the girls soapy (and icky) bucket for washing the car. And I really didn't want him getting all dirty from crawling in the grass--or muddy grass once the girls were done washing the car. :) This definitely worked for me!
