Welcome to our new little friend, Marla.  She is a new puppy in our house.  She is an Olde English Bulldog.  Coco doesn't like her one bit!

Just a couple of friends getting their hair done!

Day 109, Sunday, April 19, 2015

Jim replaced the outside light on our front porch.  This one is all rusty and it is hard to find one that mounts like this one.  It is white and shiny now! 

Day 108, Saturday, April 18, 2015

Coco likes to sit at the front door and watch the world go by.  Mostly, birds, squirrels, cats...but he does get excited when he sees someone pull into our drive!

Day 107, Friday, April 17, 2015

This little cutie is my great niece.  She got her face painted over the weekend and is just as sweet as she can be.

Day 106, Thursday, April 16, 2015

Mrs. Dietrich hit the bunny sale after Easter.  She bought them for our AR store for the students who have reached their goal.  (The brown one smells like chocolate!)

Day 105, Wednesday, April 15, 2015

My tulips are open and looking good!  We lost some of them last year, to moles or the weather!

Day 104, Tuesday, April 14, 2015

I went to watch Peyton at his track meet.  He is doing the long jump and 100 meter race.  This jump was good and measured over 11 feet.

Day 103, Monday, April 13, 2015

Kellee and Amy came to my house to work on the project for National Scrapbook Day.  We created 9 tags and a cover for a mini album.  We cut all the parts and Kellee will assemble the kits before May 2.

Day 102, Sunday, April 12, 2015

Cindy couldn't wait for me to wake up this morning.  JoAnn's had paper on sale!  So off we went to buy paper for our Kiwi Designs templates and well, a few other things, too!

Day 101, Saturday, April 11, 2015

We had a class at 8:30 this morning.  Pocket Pages, which is a new concept in scrapbooking.  We shopped for a while and went to JoAnn's and bought some paper to try out our new Kiwi Designs templates!  Ate dinner at the kickback at Drury Inn.  We worked on our scrapbook supplies until 1:30 am.

Day 100, Friday, April 10, 2015

Cindy and I left for Collinsville for our annual Creating Keepsakes Scrapbook Convention.  We have one class today and lots of shopping to do!  We ate at Lotta Watta Creek for dinner.

Day 99, Thursday, April 9, 2015

We stopped at the "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas" sign before we went to the airport for our flight home.  The landing was the worst ever.  We flew through thunder clouds.  When the plane touched down, the passengers applauded the pilot!

Day 98, Wednesday, April 8, 2015

We drove back to Vegas this morning.  We took this photo last night when we walked "below the rim".  The trail was narrow is some places going down, but climbing back up where we had just walked down was a little more difficult.  We were glad we walked about 1/4 mile on the trail near sunset.

Day 97, Tuesday, April 7, 2015

We went to Navajo Point in a Pink Jeep!  The guide drove us from the South Rim to the East Rim and we stopped several points along the way.  There is a big 4 story watch tower at this location.  You can see the Colorado River and some of the rapids from here.

Day 96, Monday, April 6, 2015

Jim is so happy to be viewing the Grand Canyon.  We drove from Vegas this morning.  It took longer than we thought it would to get there, but it was worth the wait!

Day 95, Sunday, April 5, 2015

This is really a bad photo, however it is the only one from the air that isn't totally blurry.  We flew to Las Vegas to drive to the Grand Canyon.  We landed around 10:30, got to our hotel an hour later.  We didn't get our key to our room until 2:30, which was 4:30 a.m. our time.  Very short night, but excited to get to the Grand Canyon tomorrow!

Day 94, Saturday, April 4, 2015

I fixed my seahorse page.  The pink seahorse was a very light pink.  It needed to be quinacridone magenta.  Much better!

Day 93, Friday, April 3, 2015

I should be doing about 1000 things today, however, I am working on this art journal page between loads of laundry, paying the bills and getting ready for our trip next week!

Day 92, Thursday, April 2, 2015

Today is our last day of school before Spring Break.  Jennifer brought Cindy and I some candy!

Day 91, Wednesday, April 1, 2015

I finished the current Inspiration Wednesday, just in time for the new video, tomorrow!

Day 89, Monday, March 30, 2015

I found these markers in my Zentangle stuff.  I bought them almost two years ago and didn't like them for Zentangle.  Fortunately, I found out that they work awesome for my art journal, though!  (Gotta get a brown one!)

Day 88, Sunday, March 29, 2015

Brutis was born on tuesday, this week.  He weighed in at 112 pounds.  Usually, calves only weigh about 60-70 pounds.  I walked out to the second pasture to get this picture.  He was standing in the middle of the field and when he saw me, he went running to his momma!

Day 87, Saturday, March 28, 2015

We went to Dick Blick to get a few supplies for our art journals.  Kellee, Lisa, Amy and I are doing art journals at The Barn this weekend.

We wore our favorite sports team to school today.

Day 83, Tuesday, March 24, 2105

So, I am not a hat person, but this is what we were supposed to wear for spirit week.

Day 82, Monday, March 23, 2015

We are participating in the Autism Awareness Week at school.  We are having a spirit week to raise awareness to the children who are affected by Autism.  We each colored a person and linked their hands around the world in our hallway.

I ordered a bunch of stuff from Joann's on line.  All of the scrapbooking supplies were on sale 50% off, plus I had another coupon for 25% off the total purchase!

Day 80, Saturday, March 21, 2015

We celebrated Peyton's 13th birthday at Whitey's.  He says, "Whitey's rocks!"  That boy can put away some chicken wings!

Coco and I have started our walking after school!  He loves to check out every tree, light pole and blade of grass on our route!

Grandma Smith's Hibiscus has a big yellow flower.  She brought it in from outside last fall and it has started to bloom.

Some of our flowers are beginning to pop through the soil!  Can't wait for all the color to start showing!

Day 70, Wednesday, March 11, 2015

It was really foggy this morning.  I tried several times to get a photo of the sun, moon and fog.  I finally got it when I got to school.  Plus the shadows of the kids walking across the playground.

Day 69, Tuesday, March 10, 2015

Nate's puppy was born today!

Day 68, Monday, March 9, 2015

I keep working on my Project 365 for 2014.  Again, I am keeping it simple.  I want to focus on the pictures and journaling, not the embellishments in this album.

Day 67, Sunday, March 8, 2015

I have been working on my Project 2014.  I have been adding washi tape to the journal cards.  Just to add some interest and keeping it simple.
