Ninja mask...

The other day we were quite busy, but Eli wanted a Ninja mask so bad!!  So I searched on the internet and found a way to make a mask with a t-shirt... it did the trick and was pretty cool!:

We will have to perfect it later, but I really like the idea.

Eli-ism Friday

As we were driving Dow the road today, Eli asked me this most intelligent question out of the blue:

"Mom, how did you know Dirk was a good man when you were going to marry him?"

I LOVE Summer!!

Summer is almost over and I"m a little sad about this :(.  Don't get me wrong, I love fall and winter and spring, but I LOVE sitting on the front porch eating watermelon with my kiddos enjoying the sunshine!!  I LOVE fresh flower bouquets and I LOVE sitting in the grass talking and playing and I LOVE having a garden and I LOVE sunshine.  There is so much of God everywhere in the summer time and I LOVE that!!

Fresh flowers from my in-laws garden
Kale from our garden
Dahlia's that are just starting to blossom
One humungo carrot from our garden!

Ivy swinging at grandma and grandpa's house

The many flowers in my in-laws garden

Bottled Apple Juice and Apple sauce

Delicious Fiesta Salsa all cozy and  bottled up for the winter...
Summer, I will miss you until next year!!!
