************One of the cards for class Saturday

I have been teaching stamping classes at my mom's scrapbook store for a while now. This is one of the cards we will be making this weekend. Looks hard, but it really isn't. And they are super fun to make!

A little something for Charlee's Room

I cut the letters and the crown on my Cricut. I glittered the crown and added some buttons. I wrapped the canvas in matching ribbon. It matches her bedding. I think it turned out cute, what do you think?

Oh, and Courtney as decided that he would like Charlee to call him Papa Coconut. Cute, huh?

Where in the world is Tico the Tom Cat

As most of you know, we are a haven for stray cats. It seems if there is a family in town who doesn't want their cats, they bring them to our neighborhood and drop them off. Well, Tico is among those that have "found" us. He has been sickly lately, so we took him to the vet where we learned he has an abcess. He just finished is $45 bottle of tuna flavored anitibiotic! He is feeling better, but probably will need one more round!

Anyway, Ari hollered for him yesterday morning and he didn't come. She thought he was out roaming and didn't worry about it. When she got ready to leave for cross country, she found him sound asleep in Brittni's planter on the side of the house. She came and got me and we took a picture because it was so darn cute! Tonight when we got home he was sitting in the same box watching everyone. He just looked at me when I took his picture. I don't think he could figure out what all the fuss was about!

A view of the 4th from my phone

Our 4th of July celebration was a little different this year. We started the day with friends at Foss Lake. We had a blast. The weather was overcast and cool for July, but somehow I still managed to burn like a candy cane. I apparently missed 2 places on my back. Now I have 2 huge red burns and the rest of me is white as a ghost. My back literally looks like a candy cane. Anyway, we then came home and went to the city fireworks display in the park. They had a new band and we were excited. However, we were meet by rain and cool weather. My kids and I had SWEATSHIRTS on in July. And honestly, I was still chilly by the time the rain cleared and the fireworks started. The girls spent the time dancing with friends. They even taught Ari the Electric Slide. Wish I had got that on my phone.
