Why do little boys have to grow up?

My oldest daughter Emily is currently taking a photography class at school.  She often has projects that need certain perspectives so one saturday as we  ( me and the children I was forcing ) were cleaning the backyard I noticed all of Adam's tractors lined up behind the sandbox rusty with weeds growing up through them. I thought how sad it was, he used to spend hours playing with those tractors in the sandbox and now they needed to be gotten rid of. But before we moved them I made the comment that they looked like they were in a tractor graveyard so Em grabbed the camera and shot these great pictures of the Adam's tractor graveyard and I mourned just a little bit for the little boy who played with them.

Super Superbowl Decorating

It's that time of year again so I thought I would re-post my superbowl spread from last year. This was seriously the easiest decorating with the biggest punch!

Here's what's on the menu for SuperBowl around here
Chips and homemade Guacamole-Of course!
Slow cooked fall apart Baby Back Ribs- My Favorite!
Spinich Dip and Crusty on the outside, Soft on the inside bread-YUM!
Chocolate Chip cookie Bars- for a sweet treat :)

Hope you have a great day and that your team wins :)

So it's been a while...

Thought I would join the blogging world once again (new years resolution thing). So i thought I would share these Ribbon Smoothies I made for our card swap Christmas get together over the holidays. I saw a smaller version of these at a scrapbook show and kept the idea tucked away in my brain waiting for the perfect time.
It took 2 trips to in & out to get the drink holders and the rest of the supplies I purchased at our local Smart and Final store that sells restaurant supplies. I ordered the ribbon from this amazing (cheap) site I found called Always Underpay. These could have been made way cuter if I had not been in the middle of my big craft show for December but they are still worthy of a post.

Glad to be back
Hope to see here again soon...I have more to share already :)
