Some Reading for Christine

As Christine noted, I'm way behind, but she needed some reading, so here's a fun story!  This is actually pretty cool as it is a 600 year old bra they found in Germany - older than corsets!  Some fun fashion history!

Knitting Projects

Finished scarf...a little shorter than I planned (I think I made it too wide), but really soft and pretty!

Just started on this one....the one novelty yarn wasn't cutting it so I'm doubling up with with regular yarn and it is looking nice!

Remember those parfaits I made with sugar free Jell-O - they fit perfectly in these disposable clear cups!

Fun at PaPa's

Having fun at PaPa's!


Watching Brave at the drive-in. I have to admit that movie was a little scary for Adam (at 4).  It is good, but not really for 4 year olds.  Andrew ended up asleep in his carseat! Just couldn't make it!


So why is it so much  more fun to water the concrete than my garden? This is Adam's sprinkler inator....and yes, I did move it after taking this.

New pool!

Adam's Table

Adam really wanted to build a table with Ray - this is their product!
