Family Friday

Oh Ella! She is into EVERYTHING...ALL the time!! I know it is an ages/stages kind of thing, and she is just curious, but between the toothpaste, the tupperware, the crayons and the dishtowel drawer there is just no reprieve!! After a rather loud CRASH-BANG-CLANG sound I ran downstairs to see who did what and there she was bringing me a pot, and there were several others waiting for me on the floor! But boy oh boy, she is cute while she does it!

Her bangs drive me crazy, getting ready to trim them, but when I did it for Haley the first time, she ended up looking like Jim Carrey in the movie Dumb and Dumber with short bangs from temple to temple. So I am a little apprehensive this time!

Last weekend Michael was off for the 4th of July and we celebrated first with some friends from church. I made these super easy firework cupcakes to take. Afterwards we headed to the Giles house for swimming. And the night before Michael and I went to a tea party...no, not that kind...Michael wouldn't be caught dead at a real tea party, but an anti-gov't-spend-our-way-into-oblivion-kind. It was fun if you are into this kind of thing, we made signs. Mine said "Ask me about the FairTax." Michael's had a picture of a tea bag and some kool-aid and said "Which one are your drinking?" There were loads of funny signs, good speakers, a comedian, booths, food and it was good to see a bunch of like minded people gathering together.

Ignore my ridiculously large sunglasses. They are all I've got right now, and I can't go buy a new pair until these are gone or broken, which probably means they will last forever!! But my sister-in-law was kind enough to give them to me when I didn't have a pair at the park. Otherwise the Houston sun will bore large holes into your face where your eyeballs used to be!

Hope your week was as wonderful as ours!

Yep, I know EXACTLY what you mean about into everything. *sigh* I'm exhausted....

I went to a tea party on the 15th of April. It was a blast and so much fun to see other people who felt like me!

The way the media portrays it, I sometimes feel like I'm the only person in the world who is disgusted with the endless spending and ever-expanding government!

Hooray for peaceful dissent!

p.s. Your shades are mini compared to my massive Jackie O's! I like yours!

I forgot you were in Houston...my parents are there right now... probably for about 6 weeks more. Dad is having more radiation. They get so tired of being there, but they have made a few friends that they try to visit while they are in.
