Just a bit of Unique-ness!

I couldn't resist NOT putting these pictures in.

Shaylee is the only one of our kids that has her father's "unique" tongue. We have a picture of her as a baby with it and now as an adult.

I bought this "unique" skirt/dress/pants thing at Goodwill... I thought of using it as a swimsuit cover up but since my kids laughed at me... I figured I wouldn't wear it in public. Tylon tried it on and his M.C. Hammer moves came out. He kept us laughing for a while!

Girls Camp 2010

Girls Camp Theme 2010: CIA
Courage In Action

The morning of Girls Camp.

This year of Girls Camp I was asked to do Capers. My first thought wasn't to excited... "how fun is it to make sure the girls do their camp chores?" My assistant was Bonny Solheim and Stacey Farr. Bonny was not able to go to camp do to work, so it was Stacey and me up at Girls Camp.

Can I say... WE HAD THE BEST TIME EVER!! This was my favorite and best year
We had the "Golden Plunger Award" and along with it came the Hershey Golden Nuggets with Almonds (and if the girls need to be properly taught in Chocolate eating, I taught and certified them.)
The Girls all worked very hard to win the award... even going as far as washing baseboards in the bathrooms. Stacey and I were known as the "Golden Girls". I was so amazed at the great attitude and hard work the girls put into their chores up at camp.
Skit night consisted of a rap about the word of wisdom. My part was to not "overindulge". I had chocolate all over my face as I was licking my fingers. I look like the joker with the chocolate on my face.
I EAT my words... Capers are AWESOME! Thank you so much to may assistants: Bonny and Stacey, they made it so much fun and easier for me! CAPERS ROCK!

Pedicure and Manicure

For my birthday present from Krissa she treated me to a pedicure and manicure. We went and got it right before Girls Camp so that we had pretty nails and toes! Camp colors were pink and black. Krissa, Kaylee and I all went and got them done together. I had a wonderful sea salt and hot rock massage... it was the best! Here are our pretty toes and nails!

Krissa's cute toes... OUR cute toes!

Thanks Krissa!

Happy Birthday to ME!

Yep, I turned another year older. Those dog-gone birthdays just keep happening! I had a great, relaxing day of being spoiled!

Krissa made a wonderful, rich cheesecake from scratch! Thank you for making my birthday a GREAT one!

Earring and Necklace Holder

After a fun shopping trip and finding lots of fun matching necklaces and earrings, I needed a place to keep them together. I am all about organization. I thought up and designed this holder and had Larry make it. He was great in just jumping right in and carrying the design out. I am so pleased with how it turned out and it is a great help to me. (Before my earrings were just all kept in one long box... mixed up and necklaces just on one hook.) Thanks, Larry, for making this for me!
Yes.... notice the color grouping... I am a little OCD about things.

Happy Father's Day, Lar!

Happy Father's Day! You have always been a great father and parental partner to me and the family. Thank you for all your sacrifices and help that you give to us.

I love you!
