HAPPY BIRTHDAY JIM!!!!

Today is my hubby's birthday & my birthday!!! To celebrate, we are going out to eat at a restaurant called "Charlestons". The food is great there.

We also got to talk with my daughter & her met her dorm roommate last night. She said it was cold there in Korea.

Today I have scrapbooking! I made a Thomas The Train layout for my grandson. And then I cheated a little and used a premade layout by "Just Jinger" on a layout for my niece and added some of my own embellishments. I had her empty her purse last September and then I documented it and took pictures, so when she has kids, she can show them how goofy she is!!!

Well, it's 6:18 am and I'm finally getting tired. Didn't do alot today. Went to Wally World, the bank, and to the pharmacy to get some prescriptions refilled.

My hubby cooked tonight! He heated up some homemade spagetti sauce that he had made earlier and boiled the noodles, and then he fixed the bread, so we would have garlic bread. It was pretty good!

Got to speak to my daughter again using Skype. Isin't technology wonderful???? Also been decorating some mini mailboxes with scrapbook paper.


Well, that's it for now. Have a great day!!!!

Happy Birthday Mark M!!! Happy Birthday Tony B.!!!! I know, I'm 1 day late! Sorry!

My daughter & her boyfriend called us from Korea using Skype. It was great to see her and to meet him. I went to a scrapbooking class today. Had lots of fun! Hubby on the other hand, got to fix our bathtub faucets. They were leaking, so he had to rip tile!!! He got the job done though (with a few choice words!!!)

Not much happening tonight. This is a little basket I made from a kit from www.just4keeps.com. Got to speak to my daughter today. I think she likes Korea, but I think she's a tad bit homesick! I am going to try to start a little project for my grandson. Just a bunch of pictures of him, in laminate, so he can have his own book!


Well, I'll sign off for now! Have a great day!

Happy Birthday Mom!!!




It's been a couple days since I blogged. We drove home Sunday night. We arrived back in Oklahoma around midnight. Thank God, because Fort Leonard Wood got ice on Monday!

Here's a picture of the street signs heading to my daughter's barricks.


Here's a Welcome sign close to her barricks!
This is one of places we ate. Pretty good!
Gave the pups a haircut. It's ugly, but it does the job! This is Gizmo.
This is Kee


So far today, I went grocery shopping, did the dishes, made eggrolls, did the dishes again, and gave the dogs their hair cuts. So now I'm just playing on the internet. Well, that's it for now. Have a great day!!!!

Happy Birthday Janie!!!!

My hubby & I took a little road trip today to see our daughter at Fort Leonard Wood, Mo. She ships out to Korea on the 15th of Feb. (boo hoo) & we decided that this would be the perfect weekend to go see her. So here are some pics of our trip.


Kinda of freaks you out if you're not paying attention eh? Actually, the semi facing us was being towed by another semi going the right way!
Our exit to Fort Leonard Wood.

It is cold outside & it is starting to sleet/snow. Glad I'm inside & don't have to go anywhere!!! I did not blog yesterday. I was busy making a "Memory House". This was inspired by watching Karen Thomas on the Carol Duvall Show. I didn't have the video, so I tried to follow the directions on the website. Anyway, this is for my granddaughter. Kind of a "Welcome To The World!" I will be making my Grandson's next!

My daughter is still at Fort Leonard Wood, Mo. Don't think she's really thrilled about it, but at least she knows some people. A couple of her Battle Buddies got stationed there, so she gets to see them. She should probably be leaving for Korea in a couple of weeks! Well, that's it for now. Have a great day!!!!
