Two of my Dreams Came True!!!

One of my dreams in life is to teach my Mother something. She has taught me many things in life, it was my dream to teach her how to knit. She basically knows how to do everything else. Look at her go. She is ambidextrous. I think she is going to be a Continental knitter. You go Mom!!!! You always amaze me. Another dream of mine was to teach my twin sister how to knit. She picked it up faster than I did. I was very impressed. Go Cindy, Go Cindy. Now I'll have to tell her about Ravelry. She will never leave her house now. Oh no what have I started. I am sorry Cindy for the new addiction, but I think you are going to love it.
On this same day I went to my daughter's soccer game. It was raining a little before the game. She ran hard, and had some good blocks. In the end it was a tie. Both teams gave it their all. I was entertained.

This is her kicking the ball. Here we are after the game. We are dry now. If you look closely you can see Ashley's doll in the seat to the left.



On this same day, we also got the cousins together for some bowling. Even Aidan the 3 yr. old played. (with bumpers) They had a ball :)


Austin played with his right and his left. He is left handed and enjoyed playing using both. Mathew got a strike and several spares, as did Ashley, actually they all got a spare or two. Thank God for the bumpers!!!!!!!!!!! well, this was a long day, Did I mention I had yummy taco salad for Dinner.
Tonight, I played softball with the Universal Studios softball league. Barry showed up with the kids to watch me. That was so sweet. Everyone was jealous, because I had the best cheering section. My kids can scream. Thank you Barry for going it sure means so much!!!!!!!!!!! I don't have pictures of this, because I left the camera at home. I will bring it to the next game.

What I am Up To

This week I did a couple of things. First, I went to my niece Krystin's 18th Birthday Party. I can't believe she is 18. She got her hair cut. It is so pretty. She had so much fun around her family and friends. Happy Birthday Krystin.
You are probably wondering what in the world is this. Well I did some research and You can sew these together to make things with them. This is going to be a laptop bag. It will be done soon. I am waiting on my boys to finish drinking some more of these so that I can finish this bag. I am looking around my house at things I can reuse to try to sell on my etsy shop. Next I will be reusing my kids tshirts. It is fun to make and easy. There are tutorials on you tube.


She is almost finished. She needs eyes, and some more hair in the back. I also have to tuck in the yarn strings. She needs eyes fast. I creep everyone out at work with her. Help Mom. I need you to show me how to paint her eyes. I am still working 2 days a week. I am still trying to find other work. I will find out this week if I can get a job at Disney cutting hair. I am not in a hurry just yet, because Austin still has school work that he needs to get done. By the end of April I will need a job where I will get more hours. We will see.

Important !!! Info on Locking Your Car

My mom sent this to me. I hope you find this useful.

How to Lock Your Car and WhyI locked my car --- as I walked away I heard my car door unlock I went backand locked my car again three times. I looked around and there were two guyssitting in a car in the fire lane next to the store. When I looked straightat them they did not unlock my car again.How to lock your car safely -While traveling, my son stopped at a roadside park. He came out to his carless than 4-5 minutes later and found someone had gotten into his car, andstolen his cell phone, laptop computer, GPS navigator briefcase.....you nameit...He called the police and since there were no signs of his car being
brokeninto - the police told him that there is a device that robbers are using nowto clone your security code when you lock your doors on your car using yourkey-chain locking device.. They sit a distance away and watch for their next victim. They know you aregoing inside of the store, restaurant, or bathroom and have a few minutes tosteal and run. The police officer said to manually lock your car door-byhitting the l ock button inside the car, that way if there is someonesiting in aparking lot watching for their next victim it will not be you.When you hit the lock button on your car upon exiting...it does not send thesecurity code, but if
you walk away and use the door lock on your key chain- it sends the code through the airwaves where it can be stolen. Somethingtotally new to us...and real.Be aware of this and please pass this note on...look how many times we alllock our doors with our remote...just to be sure we remembered to lockthem....and bingo someone
has our code...and whatever was in the car...can be stolen.Snopes Approved.Please share with everyone you know... Good information!!! LIGHT TRAVELS FASTER THAN SOUND. THIS IS WHY SOME PEOPLE APPEAR BRIGHT UNTILYOU HEAR THEM SPEAK.

Catch Up Time

Well I will try and catch everyone up on what I've been doing. First of all my son has been blogging for about maybe 2 months if that and he already has half the number of visitors as me. He is seven. I can't believe it.
Barry, Barry and Carrie went golfing for Barry's Dad Barry's birthday. Yes my husbands name is Barry and so is his fathers name. The weather was beautiful and so was the company. I had so much fun on the golf course with Barry. It was nice to get out and relax in the Florida sunshine.

Next

We went to St. Augustine. Aidan wanted to check out what was in front of the cannon. He stepped on the ledge and Barry grabbed him. There was at least a 20' drop. I don't get where he gets his adventurous side from.


Yes these shoes are still comfortable. I could walk all over the Earth in these.



Here is an Outfit I made for Ashley's doll. This is the other doll I've been working on. I don't know which color to use. Purple or blue for the sleeves. what do you think?


I have to admit, I sure was tired after picking up this golf ball. Austin just got up and ran around some more. I don't know where he gets his energy.


We've been getting up early every morning to go to swim lessons at South West Aquatics. I have enjoyed watching my kids swim. Here is a video of them.

So, I've been a little busy. The doll has taken up most of my time. I am trying to get it done so that I can enter it in the Orange County fair. My hands are getting tired. I miss knitting. My hands don't get as tired. My first sock is still going. I knit on it on the way to Disney. I hope to finish it soon. Sorry for the collage, I will try harder to keep up my posts.
