Metolius River

Picture of the Metolius River just West of Sisters Oregon. One of my families favorite stops when we head over to Eastern Oregon.

View of the river from the Fish hatchery. The Head of the Metolius is just about a mile from the fish hatchery. The water is extremely cold no matter what time of year.

My itchy youngest child!

Here is a picture of my youngest daughter showing me how she was itching her back while she had the chicken poxs. I can't believe she can wrap her arms all the way around her and touch her fingers! Ooh to be that limber!!

More Cupcake purses!!!!

The first one was so fun I had to make more! I got 2 more done on Sunday! These ones have a bright rainbow effect.

The pink cupcake purse I gave to my cousins little girl for her birthday, she thought it was cute, but loved the gift inside more! lol. It was pickles! Yes Pickles, she loves pickles! I found little pickle cups and gave some to her.

Cupcake purse

Here is my newest creation, a crochet cupcake purse. I purchased the pattern off Etsy. It is so easy and so cute! It is actually larger than I was expecting it to be. This is a project that can be done in less than 1 hour! Of course it took me longer than that, I am not a skilled at crocheting, but it was fun!

I am actually looking forward to making more! There are several little girls I know that would think this purse it neat!

Chicken Pox!!!!!!! UGH!!!!!!!!!

My 3 teenage children have gotten Chicken Pox! Yes Chicken Pox! My younger 2 had the vaccination so their duration was small and really not to bad, My oldest though, poor thing, had them younger, but a very mild case. Well she is miserable! She has a really bad case of chicken pox.

Seems like there for a few years we didn't hear of it going around, now several people (kids) in our community have it, well hopefully none will get it again!

Church Auction, my donation

Each year our church does a "Penny Crusade" to raise money for missions. We are a very small church with attendance being between 25 to 60 on any given Sunday. We though are very generous when it comes to missions! This year I donated a "Gardner's tote" inspired by one I had seen on etsy from a fellow soaper (twinbirchbathandbody) . I loved the idea and thought it would be a great auction item, and it was. Along with the Gardner's tote I did 2 bags of 10 soaps each, this is a common donation of mine, usually has lots of bids. Which is great with all moneys going to missions.

My nieces 4th birthday party

The quilt made for my niece by her grandma: The white squares have little girls embroidered on them, all done by hand. My mom does a great job with that!
