Levi's pottery....

So I ask Levi "Can I have 5 to 7 more place setting of this?"
Levi "MOM I can only make original items"
Me "bummer!"
But really isn't it all beautiful? Limited editions only here. What will happen when Levi isn't in Art with Mr. S anymore?
I am so thankful for teachers like him! Finding a kids hidden talent. We are closing in a graduation. Today I mailed the invites. WHEW! Now I just need to plan a party....

Doggie field trip!

It's true...I am a dog lady. I've been called that. At least I am not crazy dog lady! But this was crazy. I love the work of Jamie at Cowbelly Pet Photography. Well through Facebook I volunteered Eddie and Charlie for her Graffiti dog project. We met up in Seattle at this wearhouse with a "free wall". Meaning anyone can tag the wall and its legal. Because as you know vandalism to some one elses property is wrong. That is my disclaimer:) It was fun and she is an amazing photographer. What a treat! I cannot wait to see the pictures! I was like the mom of a two year old at one of our photoshoots. I wanted them to behave so bad and I think they did! I hope you enjoy these pictures I took of the graffiti. I have no idea what the words say and thats a good thing.

On the way home a few stops. The Anemas lovely Seattle home and a check on Wendi. And the answer is "no baby":)
Thanks for stopping by!

Crazy times....

I have been a little busy lately and some things are suffering. I don't think I ever blogged about Prom-Levi and Meagan-so cute! I can't find my memory card from Mother's day and that's making me crazy! I will have to get pictures from my sistas. I went to Seattle for the weekend and spent time with Wendi and baby to be. Hana came along and built a stroller and caught bugs with Jackjack. We did a senior shoot at the EMP which you see pictured. Everything in my mind just keeps going back to this family. Please continue to pray for strength for Wendi. She is amazing and her faith is unshaken. This is a season of struggle for them but they belong to God and they know he is perfect.
So I am back to Seattle today for a fun surprise which is not a far as I know:)
Thank-you for stopping by!

Fishing with a view...

AHHHHHHmazing view! I have said it a million times. The pond at the top of the hill is loaded up with trout. A perfect fishing hole:) The boys were up there fishing so we thought we'd check it out. The fish were jumpin and the bugs were aplenty! Oh and another Killdeer nest. She did not appreciate us on her island! What do you think those clouds look like?
Thanks for stopping by!

Cinco de Mayo!

Spontaneous 5th of May celebration! LOve It! Becky texted.. I said YES! While Bill enjoyed his daily dose of Glen Beck. The ladies(me, Becky and Hana) sat at the table and caught up. Pico from El Ranchito and chips from food pavilion. I whipped up some chicken quesadillas for any one who was hungry. The dogs where sad because we never did get to that walk. Sorry Charlie!

Protective mama!

If she just had kept quiet I would not have noticed her and her nest. But instead I heard a loud peep! I looked down and there she sat staring at me. The dogs were obliviously running ahead of me. Thanks-goodness! I took a step toward her and she charged me. There was no way to explain I only intended to take a picture or two of her nest. So she ran aside pretending to be injured. I love all the natural instincts God gave all his creatures for survival. It's just amazing. How can people not see God in creation and just go on believing every thing just evolved? If you know God then you see and that in its self is a gift from God. Also the Canadian Geese trio is back and the goslings just hatched. I stare out my window at them all the time. All day long I hear the Killdeer and Geese peeping and honking at predators. Mom's protecting their young. It's a beautiful thing.

Thanks for stopping by!
