Baby Picture Sundays ~ Flower Power

Found another one...This one I found over at Who says 8 is Enough? When I came across this one I knew exactly the picture I wanted to share. This is my beautiful lil girl back in the sumer 2001 in my mom's flower garden. I didn'thave digital back then so I just took a picture of the picture so I could share. I love it.

Show and Tell Tuesday...Week 1...

I love doing these these things called "meme"...I happen to stumble across this one over at Through Jenny's Lens a few days late but the link was still up so I thought I'd join. This is my boy learning how to jump his 4-wheeler. I need to get back down to the track and take another one...so I hear he can clear the the entire dirt pile now. This was his first day jumping here just a few days ago...

My older boy however has been jumping for quite a bit longer and as you can see in this picture...the entire dirt pile and he is FLYING HIGH! They love it. This track is at our shop on the edge of town...so far...no neighbors have complained...Keep your fingers crossed. Got to love small town for that.

I <3 Faces...Week 13...My Friend & I

I always look forward to the I ♥ Faces entries each week. I can learn so much in one place!
This week I choose a picture of my daughter and her best friend at camp in 2007. There are some weeks she lives at the friends house more then at home. But we love them both as if they were both mine.

With this photo I just added frames using PhotoImpact. I'm sure I could do alot more with this program but adding a frame was all I got figured out today. :)

And for the adult entry I love this pictue of my Best Friend...My Hubby...

Memories Express is Featured...

That is correct. I was so excited when I received an email from Tracey Clark over at http://www.traceyclark.com/ and http://www.shuttersisters.com/ informing me that my blog is named in the blog roll. Click HERE to see me and others on this weeks list.

This week topic is "authentic". There is nothing more authentic then the town I live in. It is the only one in the world. Primghar was settled in the fall of 1872. Its name is an acronym derived from the names of eight early settlers who laid out the town.

The only Primghar in the World

Pumphrey, the treasurer, drives the first nail

Roberts, the donor, is quick on the trail

Inman dips slightly, the first letter in,

McCormack adds M, which makes a full PRIM

Green, thinking of groceries, gives the G

Hayes drops the H without asking a fee,

Albright, the joker, with his jokes all at par

Rerick brings up the rear and crowns all


Author unknown.

So I also choose to feature a picture of a tree in my backyard. The sky is such a pretty blue today but the wind is FIERCE. It is cold out there. So with it being Spring I wanted to show the sky and dream of 60-70 degree weather.

I edited the picture below with Corel and just added a border/frame and the date.

Random Picture Challenge...

February 2008


17th folder

33rd picture

I choose to do the 17th Folder and 33rd picture and this is it. This is one of my Great-Nephews. It actually is at Christmas of 2007 and I had edited it to high light his face and blacken out the garage background, He is sooooo Cute. It's been a while since I've seen him so I bet he is getting BIG.
