my hydrangea

we have spent a lot of time and energy with landscaping this summer and it is really turning out beautiful. i have always loved hydrangeas and i just adore this one. it is still in its pot since i just can't decide on a location for it yet. but it did not disappoint me, the blooms are amazing!

busy summer

i am a slacker...i know it. one of these days i hope to be back and blogging regularly.

lots going on right now with job hunting, town hunting, kids home for the summer and projects that never end. but it will all work out and slow down at some point:)

one of my projects this summer was to make the girls dresses. i have never made a dress before in my life. but i was gonna figure it out by golly! and i did! and i even managed to make both of their dolls matching ones too!

they both got haircuts and look just darling!

(sorry the pics aren't the greatest, i rely on my camera phone way too much lately:)

end of school madness

well sorry i have been a little MIA...its the end of school and its pure madness. everyone that can schedule something in its only going to get worse before it gets better.

we have also made the decision to search for a new job. in the civilian world. and couldn't be happier. after many years of being screwed by the army, we are done. our children aren't aware of any of this yet, so if you happen to be around them, please don't mention it. we want to get a few more things planned out before we tell them. i don't know where we will be in 6 months, but i know matt won't be deploying. and thats the best part. until all the ducks fall into place, we will continue enjoying the gorgeous weather up here, watch our garden and flowers grow, and work on getting rid of stuff we no longer need.

i probably won't be around for the next few weeks...we have family arriving, end of school and all the events in between:) i will be back eventually:)

growing up

tonight was abby's class musical, ironically titled get up and grow. i must be feeding my kids too well cause they have been doing a lot of growing lately. (brace yourself mom and dad)

it had been awhile since i got the girls together for pics...and of course there is no better time than when you have a new camera:) so i had to break that baby in right!

can you tell my kids were born and raised with a camera in their face. they are not shy. i actually had to stop shooting them cause they had used up my entire memory card.
take another mommy...just one more....

ok i promise this is the last one mommy...

bwhaaa...boy do we really have her fooled!!

this would be the money shot. thanks kiddos. thanks for growing up on me when i was busy washing dishes and tucking you in at night. thanks for making me wonder where all these past years have gone. thanks for making me feel that much older. thanks for being simply amazing.

a little of this and a little of that

see how bad i am about taking pictures? i couldn't even finish my own challenge! ugh! frustrating. i need a clone!

here is a pic from last week when ella and i took a walk in the woods:

then i decided to ride this sewing roller coaster, so i made some cafe style curtains for my scrapbook area. even lined them...they came out awesome if i do say so myself :)

thats all for today:)

i challanged a friend to take a picture a day for the entire week. mainly so it would force me to take pictures.

dog sledding

at the beginning of february the girls brought home flyers from school advertising the chance to win a ride on a dog sled. you could enter everyday that month if you wanted to, you just had to go to the library. well abby had it in her mind that she was riding that dog sled. so most days in february you could find us at the library. she prayed about, talked about it...but it wasn't until we got the call that she was selected that she truly went nuts!

the day came and it turned out ella was an alternate cause someone didn't show. so hey both got to ride the dog sled. a truly once in a lifetime experience. this is at a park within view from my house, so very close. the library just puts on such wonderful programs for the kids. here are some pics. enjoy!
