Bear Lake Pictures

Melanie showing off her moves. She is a killer on the VB court. Don't mess with her!

We made a hot tub (see more pics later) and by the last day the kids decided to just fill it with billions of shells.

I think Jordan was worried Sammie would take Elijah swimming. But what I wonder is what would he have done? Would he sacrifice the shoes and run in? And 1/4 mile of shallow water later would he have arrived in time to have done any good? Just thinking out loud here. I find it amusing.

Every year I think Brynja will have out grown her need to bring home a bag of shells that mom will eventually chuck while she is at school. I will hope this is the last year.

And this was looking a little bit like trouble waiting to happen. Nothing but fun came of it, but I always get nervous when kids on bikes are chasing people on foot.

So Jordan, your son NEEDS a dog. Look at him, so happy. And finally in charge of something.

Elijah is so cute. I want to adopt him.

Brynja and Isaac in the hot tub. It got pretty big. And I was secretly thinking how funny it would be to move away to a different spot and watch a 4 wheeler land in it. :)

Look ma, no leash! Sammie and Aliyah playing in the water. At like 9 in the morning.

Yes, she really did ride her bike out into the lake. It was pretty funny.

Finally, I know. However if you are on Facebook you could have seen them sooner. hee hee

I am Esmerelda!

I saw this on Melanie's blog and had to try it. I was a little worried, I am so much like so many of the princesses. bwahahahaa Funny though, I think I agree with this made up nonsense. hee hee

Mysterious and passionate. You are a survivor. Even though life has swung you some difficult situations you have a strong intuition that gets you through. Also, you have the capacity to sympathize and relate to a variety of different people.

Which Disney Princess Are You?

Oh you want pictures???

Well, today is not your day.

hee hee

Ok, so I just pulled them off the camera but I haven't changed them over yet so they are share-able. So you will just have to sit tight, won't you?

See, I got the flu from Hollie's little boy. Thanks for that Damon. And my kids did just start school, but I was busy being sick and then helping with a couple of major projects. So I haven't had time.

But no fear, things are looking up! The kids go back to school, so everyone keep your fingers crossed that the sickos are gone. And if I can stay focused I may have pics for you. Maaaaayyyy.

I have to get a few little things squared away first, like actually setting times for the drawing classes I am supposed to teach. ha Sort of important to schedule that. And a bunch of other little things I may or may not have procrastinated on.

So all I am really saying, is give me a couple more days and then there will be pictures. If you are lucky.
