I was on Pintrest a while ago, and noticed the recipe for Slime. I thought that because Tucker loves play dough so much that he might like this. I got all the stuff for it, and we decided to do it today. I don't know if you can tell by the pictures but is yellow. it was  way easy and fun to make. I think we will be doing some more.

Table Runner!

A month or two ago I got this runner at DI. It was just a plain tan runner I new that if I just put the plain tan runner down it would fad into my table, and then what is the point?  I decided I would ad some felt flower and leaves, and ether glue them on or sew them on I tried a few different styles and didn't like any of them. I also didn't want to spend a hole lot of time on it. As I thought about it for a while this is what I came up with. I really like it.
To tell the truth. This is the second attempt. If I was to flip it over you would see my first attempt. I missed a letter (N). Who wants something miss spelled? I don't!  I am already know for my spelling. I didn't want to give any one ammunition.
Thanks to Randan he caught my mistake.
The frustrating part is I wrote the word down on a piece of paper so I wouldn't make a mistake. It didn't look right, so  I typed it on word perfect, so its not like I didn't do my home work, and try to avoid catastrophe.


The other night when I was getting Tucker ready for bed Randand hollered at me wanting to see if I wanted to see his owl. I did, and this is what he came up with. If I do say so he did a awesome job in the amount of time he did it in. Tucker got this etch-a-sketch a while ago.  Everyone has had fun with it. When Tucker found out I was taking a picture of it he wanted in.


Randan and I have only been married for six years. March 3, 2012 was are six year anniversary. Compared to some not a very long time, and others we are veterans. Sometimes it feels like forever, and other times like it has gone by in a flash.
We went to a club/ bar. Yes, I know. "Avoid even the appearance of evil," and I am going to make an excuse another big no no, but if you could just try these stakes you would understand.They melt in your mouth.  Well all their food for that matter. They grill their veggies, and a loaded mashed garlic potato. Yum!  I am salivating just typing about it. Maybe I should eat some breakfast before I write about food.
After we ate dinner we went to a movie. We saw "The Vow." I was a little nervous to see it, because I had some friends say it was sad. I hate when a movie has a sad ending. I don't watch a movie to see what can happen in real life. I watch one to have the happy ending. I didn't want to cry. I have to say it was better then I thought.
I really enjoyed our date.
I bet you are wondering why the picture of the third volume of  "The work and the glory." Well I will tell you. He made the comment once on how he would like to read these books, but he would never have the time to do it. I came up with a solution. about two to three years ago I stared getting the books in CD for a Christmas hear a birthday there, so he could  lesson while he was driving truck, or driving somewhere long distance. He has really enjoyed it, so when I need a idea on what to get him for a re anniversary a light bulb went on. I wish I could have recorded his reaction, because in all the years I have been giving him gifts he has never responded that well. For the first split second I thought he was teasing me, but no he really was excited. That was as good as a gift for me I have always wanted him to react that way so I knew if I did a good job or not. I sometimes have a hard time reading him.
All in all it was a very fun evening.

Piggy Bank!

I had to jot this one down, because it made me laugh so hard.
Yesterday Tucker was playing with something he shouldn't, and I told him to quit playing with it. Being his typical three year old self he keep in playing with it. A second time I said "Please don't play with that Tucker ,we don't have the  money to replace it," and this time (with a little smile) I got this response :" I have money in my piggy bank you can have." I was quite taken back, so I just sat there for a split second. You know how fast your thoughts go. I thought " man I am in big trouble if I have a three year old that smart." They need to send expecting parents to school, because I think that kids are getting smarter and smarter.
