We are so blessed to know each and every person at The River....the food was delicious, the weather beautiful....and of course, our Baptism...well, the pictures tell it all. Till next time, yinz crazy guys.....God Bless!

You Would Be a Pet Bird
You're intelligent and witty, yet surprisingly low maintenance.
You charm people easily, and they usually love you a lot more than you love them.
You resent anyone who tries to own or control you. You refuse to be fenced in.
Why you would make a great pet: You're very smart and entertaining
Why you would make a bad pet: You're not interested in being anyone's pet!
What you would love about being a bird: Flying, obviously
What you would hate about being a bird: Being caged

....The BABIES!!! I have had a few requests to show the BABIES who arent' babies anymore. Eros and Chloe are a year old now and Katie is probably hitting nine years now. They aren't the easiest to take pics of as they want to play and look and explore, but I did manage to get a few closeups of my Cuties.
So without further delay.....presenting my Four-Legged Family....
First off is Chloe Nicole, my crazy terrier/mix, aka "howler", teaser, instigator, activities director, picky eater, toy hoarder, protector and all round loveable sweetie pie....
Then there's big 'ol cuddly Eros Caliente, my Mastif/Lab mix, aka slobber-slinger (say that 3 times fast), eater of all food and non-food items, shoe designer (chews them up well enough so they don't look the same way ever again), Chloe-lover, and 120+ pound big sweet bear of a dog....
Yes, his head really is THAT BIG!!!!
Last, but not least my own Katie Sue....the real sweetie of the bunch. Katie probably gets the most disrespect from the human males of the household. She's a Brittany Spaniel mix and has some issues (which the males of the household cannot deal with) some of which include, chasing imaginary lights, licking the carpet and walls, barking at spots. I, on the other hand, see her as my protector as she always lets me know of anyone near the house as well as being EXTREMELY obedient when told to do anything....I just love her to bits...she is very very good and is the Alpha dog of the bunch...and she lets everyone know it too.....
She wanted to bite the camera due to the flashing light which is the reason for the weird angle of the picture...I definately have no worries should I mysteriously be attacked by a hugh ball of light....
Anyway that's the babies (still got to take pics of Echo the cat and Cujo the turtle...but hope this holds yinz guys for awhile as they are not the easiest ones to take pictures of at any given time.
And just so you know that I'm not giving up on my crafts....I'm still working on the wedding cross stitch...every day...no kidding. I did manage to squeeze in a small cross stitch for my son's lady for her birthday but I forgot to take a pic of it. It was a flatfold with the words "Work Hard, Pray Long, and Trust God". Hopefully it will be an incentive for her as she heads off to college. I do have to tell you though that I got a wonderful tutorial for a flat fold from Vonna at the Twisted Stitcher....turned out excellent....thanks, Vonna.
Okay, that's it for now....we'll be taking the kid to college on Friday (whoo-hoo!...sorry didn't mean to sound excited there!). Oh, don't worry, I'll miss him...I promise...sorta! With that all said, till next time, yinz crazy guys.....

OMG...HOW CUTE ARE THESE! Found it over at Kari's Blog and I just had to do one!! Even did one of the Sweetie Man....
Go get yourself Simpsonized at http://www.simpsonizeme.com/!
Now much going on here except on Sunday I did have a slight battle with some "evil" forces who were trying to ruin my day....they lost!! Listen to this...Sweetie Man and I were having this fabulous weekend...son is away...we're all alone for a few days...get the pic! Lots of fun...right? Wrong (at least part of Sunday)! We get up Sunday morning getting ready to relax and get ready for church. Our Pastor calls and needs the Sweetie Man's help with something down at church...no problemo, he would go down as soon as he finished shaving...his head! (don't ask!) Anyway, I told him I would drive him the block down and then use the car to pick up the pastries for church and deliver them. So far so good! Except, on my way back home, I locked myself out..sorta. I knew I could get in the back door except I locked the back fence for some strange reason and would have to climb over a 6 ft. fence. I found a small table in my neighbor's yard that I figured I could stand on to help me...didn't work...ground near fence door was not level...not good. Then I figured if I drove the front of the car to the fence door, (without denting the car, of course) I could stand on the hood and hoist myself over or at least try to finagle (is that a scrabble word?) the lock. Got the car in position....went to get a finagle tool. Saw my nice neighbor, who is younger and stronger than me, and asked him if he could jump my fence. He did...ah, I got in!!! Nice guy that neighbor. Anyway, I still had time to get the pastries. Got in the house once the dogs stopped jumping on me in the yard (I really should teach them how to undo the fence lock)only to find the tea I brewed in the iced tea maker leaked all over the counter....someone was definately out to ruin my day! Well, I cleaned that up only to knock over the dog food on the floor as I was putting it in the bowls (luckily Eros was there to help clean that)....still not getting at me you evil guys! Sweetie Man managed to come home in time to get the pastries for me giving me enough time to get ready for us to get to church. The funny part of this is that the sermon for the day was how evil will do anything it can to get to you....to make you lose it and yell and swear and do all sorts of mean and nasty things....Sweetie Man and I just looked at each other and smiled....this time...we won!!! (I have a feeling it's gonna be a little tougher when the son comes back from vacation tho.....oye!) Wish me luck!
With that said.....till next time, yinz crazy guys....

Okay....I'm gonna wimp out here.....I honestly cannot pick a number of blogs I enjoy......I truly enjoy all 125 blogs that are on my own bloglines....(and a few that aren't yet)
YOU ALL ARE ROCKIN' GIRL BLOGGERS!
Check out my list of blogs on my sidebar...if you are on there...YOU ARE MY FAVORITE! I picked those blogs because I got something from each and every one...whether it be something as simple as the design of your blog that makes me smile to your honesty on life to your particular craft, to where you live and even what you read....I love you all! My 20 year old son asked me yesterday which of the dogs was my least favorite (updated pics coming soon by the way, per request!) and I said I love them all ...I get something different from each of them....Katey my oldest, tho a bit paranoid, let's me know about strangers near the house as well as being the only one who truly listens to me. Eros, my 120 lb mastif/lab is just so darn loveable and cuddly to me, yet intimidating to those who don't know him for my protection. And Chloe, dear dear terrier mix crazy Chloe, is just so happy to be alive and full of life and inquisitiveness that you can't help but love her to bits with all of her insane energy as well as keeping Eros active. (mostly by harrassing him!) I wouldn't have them in my life if I didn't get a little something to add to my life from them.
It's that way with people you meet....you take away a little something from everyone. I learned that from the Sweetie Man...it truly makes a difference in your life and greatly enhances it.
So, with that said, no matter what blog you have....you're GREAT in my book...thanks for being the best darn Girl Bloggers anywhere!!! Till next time, yinz crazy guys.......
