It's happening-we are becoming country folk.  Shooting guns off the deck.  Beebee  and pellet guns mind you.  I shot two for two at a can by the pond below...just sayin!
Also we enjoy the happenings.  A tree being cut down had the last word.  That truck was stuck a while.  I watched all the attempts at getting him out from the deck.

Lastly, I insisted on everyone at dinner on the same night and even bought rib-eye at safeway. (it's on sale right now and it was amazing) 
I took a few plant pics!
Rib-eye  and broccoli with cheese sauce. mmmmmmmmmmm good

Long time friends and scary gang in an alley!

Grr sometimes computers can really anger me. I wanted to scan a picture in of Levi and Dakota as babies but I could not get the thing to work. MAYBE I will keep trying. Back to the story...while Wendi and I were on a shoot in the dark scary alley of our little town. This gang rolled up. So I left Wendi holding the baby (literally) and grabbed a few shoots of Levi, Dakota and Max. Levi and Dakota have been friends since the beginning. I babysat Dakota for my friend Dar and that is how the bond began. I think they are blood at one time they made cuts and put their blood together. SICK! The amazing thing is they go to different schools but manage to get together for some movie making, movie watching biking and longboarding.
They are alway scheming something. When Bill gets home I will have the baby picture scanned. He loves it when he walks in the door and has to solve a computer glitch.

Thank's for stopping by!
Update******* I needed to select-so simple.
Anyway here they are as babies..

What are my plans for the weekend?

Rest and relaxation. Here is where I will be and if you want to stop in for a coffee, feel free. The picture of the geese is shot from our patio. Watching the geese family is fascinating. The goslings are so obedient, they listen to the commands of their parents. It's all about survival of course. The mom goose might say "sit ,freeze, walk or relax" When she does they all do it at the same time. Isn't God's creation amazing?
Also I picked up a magazine at Costco. It's got a lot of good basic info about taking a good picture and using your digital camera. We all want to take great pictures for our scrapbooks or you can always call theSNAPsisters for a session!

Happy Memorial Day! Enjoy the weekend of sunshine!

Peoples, places and food...

First Hana got her hair colored-she loves that and I figure there are worst things. I think she is beautiful(pic taken with my iphone)

First trip to sonic. Every time we are out getting a bite. Some one will text..."get me something" UGH! Diet Cherry Limeade is refreshing and burger patties are small get a double...just my thoughts!

Aunt Shirley and Mom. A beautiful sunday at Mom and Dad's. A visit from cousin Landon. Dad resting on the porch...his favorite spot.

Another busy weekend. But I feel so blessed!

California girls on a rainy day..

I must have driven my parents crazy! 23 odd years ago myself and these two high school friends decided it would be cool to live on a beach in cali. The good news is we decided today -we all turned out fine. WHEW! Thank the Lord-He was watching over us.
It took a four hour lunch, lots of laughter, creme' brule and a few serious discussions to decide that. I thought I'd pull out a picture of us in our tiny apartment in Long Beach. I don't think we've changed abit...well maybe we have?

Good to see you Sam and Roz! It's us again...

Mom's day Brunch...

Our Mom!

It was my turn to host and I had fun this year with the MOM"S TABLE. Bill helped out by serving us..thank-you Bill! My theme was nature and country. The china is our pattern we registered for 20 odd years ago and I still love it. The table belonged to my mom's parents. The brunch included Biscuits and gravy, cinnamon rolls, egg dishes, potatoes and fruit. Oh!! and a little champagne cocktail.

Sorry - not many words about our day-it was great . Having blogger issues:(
The last pictures is the family across the street. Just enjoying God's creatures up here on the hill. Hopefully Tami's blog will fill you in better. Also the pottery with the fern in it is what Levi made me for Mom's day, I got a card from Hana and a hug from Alex-it's ALL good!

Fun with photos...

Hey this is fun. We down loaded GIMP Hana is a whiz at these things. She loves taking pictures (like her Mama) and then playing with them. You can download textures from many FREE sites. We doctored up this two pictures a bit. It was good mother/daughter bonding time:)
I need to get off this computer and get to work...Mother's day brunch is at my house this year. I am having fun planning it, just not looking forward to the big clean in the next few days. Stay tuned for some pictures of the brunch.
Happy Mother's day! Celebrate MOM!
Thanks for stopping by!
