Fun While it Lasted...

Usually I help out with VBS at our church, but this year I opted out. Now, I wasn't exactly playing hooky from helping, I just had something else to do. You see, Chris and Melodie were doing all the technical stuff at VBS and couldn't take the baby, so guess who got to babysit all week.
I must say, we have had an exciting week and I am getting pretty darn good at bathing and feeding cereal. At the start of the week she would have her cereal all over her and everything close to her. Last night when I fed her she did so good we didn't even have any on her clothes.
Tonight is family night at VBS so Anna will get to go with the rest of the was fun while it lasted!!!

My Sisters Family...

Well, I did it again. This time I made "stick people" for my sisters car. This is her family as it stands today. The old folks and their two dogs, Sugar & Spice.
I love being creative!!

Relay for Life...Remembering Sandie

Sandie's parents, two sisters, niece Kristen, David and I, Chris and Melodie and the three kids, Crissy and her two children, and Aunt Wanda all went to Shelbyville for the Relay for Life in honor of Sandie. It was a great night being able to do something for Sandie and remebering her laughter and smiles and the joy she brought to all of us. It was a sad night because she is no longer here to share the laughter, smiles and joy with us

I'm not sure how much walking we actually did...some walked more than others but it was nice to be walking for something that was for a great cause. There was a really nice service at 9:00 pm when they turned off all the lights and lit all the candles in remebrance of the loved ones lost to cancer. There was a moment of silence for all to reflect on their individual loved ones and then several people spoke. After that several others spoke of the importance of regular checkups for all types of cancer and melanoma was mentioned specifically as the deadliest of all. They warned everyone to be cautious in the sun and to use sunscreen protection.

I was extremely proud of Cassidy as she got on the computer and created the banners she and Jacob were wearing. Both of them hold a special place in their hearts for their Aunt Sandie.

Just Married...

As most of you know, I love, love my Silhouette cutting machine. I made this little car and lettering for Greg and Leslie's car while they were gone on their honeymoon.
Since I am not the most creative person, I thought it turned out really cute.

Now mind you, I had NO part in the decorating. The culprits for that were the three pictured below...Jacob, Drew and Cassidy. They did have a little help from Pop and Chris while us girls looked on.
