This is a teapot...Yup...a tea pot R.J found on the Internet being sold for $3,500.00 so in Pottery class he decided to make his own. Turned out pretty neat. R.J definitely has an artistic talent.
Daffodil Days. For $10.00 this is what you get. Pretty yellow flowers. However when they come they look like green onions and last year someone in my family thought they were green onions so put them in the fridge and they died... Nope not an onion...A Daffodil.
Primghar was have an Chili Contest and raising money for the the Quasi coming up in 2013. So on the spur of a moment after going out for supper with friends we stopped by Fareway and grabbed $80.00 worth of items and ended up with the winning Chili. It was delish.... My favorite that Randy has ever made. He haded a secrect ingredient...Whiskey...Shhhhh!!!!
Malissa needed a wind row on a farm. So she baked a cake, planted corn and a few tree to block the wind. Good idea.
Our Family pictures are now hanging up at the lake house. These are rather cool. They are 12x12 METAL pictures. They look awesome on my living room wall.

R.J got a new toy...Yes Toy...A laser that will shone up to four miles. This is one end he can add to it and gives a disco effect.
My silly fingernails...I had pretty fake ones on for a bit and then when they came off. YUCK so I bought some cute decals and put on. And Yes I wear this many rings every DAY!
A hydropontic tomato. These tomatos are grown localy and were planted on Christmas Eve. Boy did a fresh tomato taste soooo good.
Sammy Dog...getting greyer every day. He can no longer hear but sure can bark to get his point across.
My AZULI SKYE package....
The display...I know maynot look like much BUT the bracelet has five charms and that is an awesome item. My favorite. Called Mimzi...So excited to order more...
Time to clean the fishy tank...oooo gross.
Dad admiring the NEW, Clean, 60 gallon fish tank. Shreck is so happy. He's the big fish on the right side. He's bigger then your hand and now that he went from a 28 gallon tank to a 60 gallon tank he prolly will be growing again.
I was so excited on Wednesday morning that we had hired some company to come clean my house. With the basement remodel and new windows we had dust everywhere and I have no item to remove it.
However when Randy came home he found this...
The clock my late Father had made me over six years ago on the counter in pieces with a note. They dropped it. However Randy called the company up and their responce was..."Well your wife should of told the girls not to dust it if it was that important to you." This clock has hung on the wall in the same spot for six years and has never fallen off the wall. so who would of thought?
Through loosing my parents I have come to realize that this is just a material item and it can be fixed someway by my Father-in-law, That I do have my Memories that NO-ONE will ever be able to SHATTER!!
This clock will be fixed and hung back up!
This is my thoughts on cleaning...
"Cleaning your house while your kids are still growing is like shoveling the sidewalk before it stops snowing."
This lil mutt cracks me up...I think sometimes he really thinks he's a cat. He loves sleeping on the back of the couch. Tho he is getting older it is a lil harder for him to get up there...But he must have been feeling good tonight for this is where he laid for the majority of the evening.

This is a picture I had made for me while in Cancun.
They made it in about 15 minutes or less, using Spraypaint, cardboard and heat.
my kids where so intrigued with the entire process.
This is actually my picture being painted for me. Malissa and R.J watching every move.
The guy had just gotten done with the one in the left corner and I wanted the same thing in the black and greys. No Problem. Wahlla...it was done.
But can you imagine that is how they make their living...going from resort to resort every evening and painting in hopes you will buy one from the. In fact we bought 2 for $25.00...The other one we purchased is the top left with the pyramid...reminded Zach of the El Ray ruins we saw on our Hummer Tour.
The Resort we stayed at on our trip to Cancun, Mexico. I would highly recommend this resort to anyone with kids. We traveled with a group of 20 and ages ranged from the youngest of 12 to 23 for kids. We all had amazing time. Wonderful beach, view, weather and SUN!!

My friend insisted on taking our picture...then after she told us why...Speedo in the background...
Picture 48 - Sushi
Malissa was trying to figure out how to use chopsticks one night while eating at a Japanese restaurant. I was very proud of the kids on this vacation, they tried allot of different things. May not have liked them all but at least they would try.
Picture 49 - Parents
If it wasn't for the parents the kids wouldn't have gotten to go...
Picture 50 - Para sailing
This is Malissa and R.J...They had fun doing this, however, they ended up having a half an hour boat ride prior to going in the sir and Malissa got a lil sea sick. But she admitting the ride was fun.
Picture 51 - Tequila Volley Ball
All the men on the trip played Tequila Volleyball with entertainment worker Kendra...Kendra was a hit with all the "Guys". From Tequila Volley ball, sand volleyball to water polo. As one from our group said, "darn, we have to go play Volleyball with Kendra. See ya!"
Picture 52- Hummer
We went on the Hummer Jungle Tour. We had four Hummers and four Seniors so the Seniors got to drive the Hummer on the main streets in Cancun. The tour also included visiting the Mayan ruins called El Rey, zip-lining in an under ground cenote and jumping from a 17 and 30 ft into a cenote and we were lucky to have EZ as our guide. He knew alot about Cancun history and was allot of fun. This is a all day event but well worth the time and money!
Picture 53 - Souveniours
This was the biggest hit...Hand made personalized barclets.
Picture 54 - Margarita ville
Of course you cant go to Cancun with out visiting Margarita Ville. Here the girls relaxing in the chair outside.
I decided to Just say picture instead of Day since in Mexico the Days get all mixed up and everyday felt like a Saturday.
