Beautiful Sunset

Last night my hubby (Daddio) and I drove into the big city for a birthday dinner, Daddio's. There is a major road construction project between our little suburb and the city. It has been bad lately with delays and bridges falling apart, seriously. So, the drive is somewhat stressfull these days...then i looked up to the horizon and saw this. Through the traffic and ugly telephone poles and billboards was the most stunning sunset. This pic really doesn't do it justice. Just wanted to share.

Thoughtful Gift Idea

Okay, I'm always telling my husband that he should pick out a "thoughtful gift" for me.

Not a package of sticky notes and pens from the drugstore.

These pics are a present i gave to him for his birthday today. Ithink it is "thoughtful".

He loves his guitar, so i took some interesting photos of it. (This is the back of my leopard print blanket on the bed and pics from different angles. i was also in some different angles trying to get the shots.) I think they turned out pretty cool, hip even.

So after i took several shots i developed the pics and bought a frame and picked the ones i thought looked the best and most artsy. I am by no means a photographer, but i like to play around with my camera. this is what happened.

Notice the shadow shots (I especially like those) and the most important thing is...Daddio liked them, too. Did i mention, he loves this guitar? He is more hip than me.
Happy Birthday, Daddio. Rock on!

Monday Monday

I had to go to a training course today. Why does that exhaust me more than running around working all day like i normally do? Anyway, i needed a pick-me-up, so here are some pictures of my baby (she's really almost 5 years old, but she will always be my baby) from our last snow storm. We've had more snow than normal around here it seems, but she doesn't mind.

I love you Rhubarb!
I love her butt!

Talk about up to your ears! You can't even see her little stubby legs.

Check out

I would love the snow too if i had a permanent fur coat. Lucky girl.

Family Art Class

This is the view from the Thomas Gilcrease home's front door.
This is the Thomas Gilcrease home where we go for our Family Art class.

These are really cool cow skulls my artsy fartsy son made.

I love my owl!

Going to art class with my son (he's artsy fartsy) at Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa, OK. Check'em out
we have already attending one Family art class and going back for more. Last time was relief it was sculptures, fun! First we sketched what we wanted to sculpt, then created some interesting things...trying something new!

Down Home Ranch

My family (husband, son, dog didn't get to go...she's still ticked) went on a trip down by Austin, TX (sometimes i'm scared of Texans, but i went anyway). We visited Down Home Ranch...check'em out ...and we had the best time. We did some projects to benefit those amazingly adorable residents.

Projects included:
new awnings
new curtains
faux painting in two room (boys bathroom and director's office) i was in on this one.
Kids projects:
fence building for miniature horses, what!
pulling weeds and clearing brush

my boys love a good project, so they were in project heaven.


Hey chicks,

Just a few more weeks until our chicks arrive, we are just like expecting excited. Next we have to purchase a brooder...whatever that is. we will learn. i have to say that we are definitely getting these chicks as pets...eating those eggs only. Don't eat your pets! i beg you.
