OFF to Grandmas we will go!

 So we set off this morning at 6am to drive 9 hours to MIMI and PAPA's house.  Me, my two boys, a friend and her 2 boys...all piled in her car and headed EAST!  The 4 boys did great during the drive.  Two napped and 2 watched movies.  A little pit stop to pee on the side of the Road and lunch at Cracker Barrel and we were set.

Once getting to Mimi's house...we set off on an adventure with the cousin!  The three have splished, splashed, and ran and screamed for several hours!  They should sleep great!

Start off with a little Sooner Pride!
In the country we like to put things in Mason Jars, Plant flowers in misc. things, and tend to our livestock.
Waggin Tails = Happy Baby Goats!

On the Road to the barn to see the livestock :)

Stopped by the garden on the way back to check on the baby watermelons, and pick a few squash!! YUM!

Got a bicycle??? Why not plant something in it!

Yup im back in Oklahoma...who complained about the roads in England??? NOT ME!! :)

A Lego we will go...

Today Toys R Us had a 2 hour Lego Event.  We got to go and build whatever we wanted and take the creations home.  They also had a table where they would show the kids a picture, they had to re-create it using Lego's and then we would have to guess what they were building.  It was great fun.  And we got some more Lego Mystery Figures!! WOO HOO

Special Thanks to Everyone who popped into my Lawn Boutique!

Last night there was a Spouse Appreciation Night at the Club/Pool here on Kirtland AFB!  It was a lot of fun.  They invited spouses to set up their Home Based Business Tables too.  Here are a few pics of my set up.  IT WAS OVER 100 DEGREES!!! I was burning up! But I met some really FAB people...and had a GREAT time!  Thanks for stopping in my Boutique and all of your WONDERFUL comments!

Don't have a Green Thumb...well you can fake it and look cute doing it!

We spent 3 years in the UK and LOVED it.  However, they have stinking neddle that will set you on fire!!  So as a necessity I decided to alter regular garden gloves.  These are perfect for protecting your forearms during all your gardening time.  No more scratches from Rose Thorns or from rock or edging.
I use decorator heavy weight fabrics.  All seams are Serged and then top stitched.  I even carry smaller sized gloves for your tween-age kids! (the green gloved set pictured at the top)  I also make garden aprons to match.

RELEASE the Hounds...or Butterflies in our Case

About a month ago, I purchased a Butterfly kit for the boys.  A few days later we received a pop up laundry hamper looking thing, and two buckets of TEENY TINY "worms".  Well these little baby caterpillars spent the next 2 weeks eating the bottom of their buckets and turning into HUGE FAT DISGUSTING caterpillars.  They then crawled up to the lid of the bucket and hung themselves upside down and formed their Chrysalis.   About 10 days later...we had BUTTERFLIES!!!  Out of the 10 Chrysalis, all hatched fine except for one..and he was born with only 1/2 the amount of wings.  So he was laid to rest in the front yard.  Garrett wanted to have a funeral...but i talked him out of it.  We lost two more eventually in the last 2 days, but i think it was just their time.  So before we lost anymore we did a ceremonial RELEASE of the last surviving 7 this morning right at our butterfly bush in the front yard.  Here are some pictures!

Garrett to Wyatt "shhh if you be really still we can get it again" Garrett to the butterfly " come here stinky...hey i raised you come back"
