Day 55

I suppose I'll have to put this little guy away before I know it.  Going to miss his little smiling face.

Day 54

Spent a lot of time today listening to my book on my iPod (A Breath of Snow and Ashes by Diana Gabaldon).  Couldn't help but post a pic of the coaster that sits beside my chair.  "The Big CD thing" as my kids call it.  LOL

Day 53

Today was World Thinking Day for the Girl Guides.  It's the birthday of Scouting and Guiding founder Robert Baden-Powell and of Olave Baden-Powell, his wife and World Chief Guide.  It's also a time to think about all the other children in the world, the meaning of Guiding, and it's global impact.

Haley and her Grandma have been working hard to finish Haley's Journey Girl Brownie outfit so that she could bring it to school with her when she wore her own uniform.  It think it turned out amazing!  Haley can't wait to take it to Brownies with her next week!

This evening we went to the Western Fairgrounds to watch the live horse races with Mike's family.  We had a lot of fun, even though we didn't win much.

Day 51

Kind of an odd pic today.  It's the corner of one of our door frames.  I love the detail on them and it reminds me of the house I grew up in as well.  I don't think I could ever live in a house that isn't at least 80 years old!

Day 49

Today is Family Day here.  We decided to spend the day at home.  We mostly played games as a family but took some time to do some baking.  Paige wanted to make the cake using the kit she got for her birthday.  I think it turned out GREAT and they sure had fun in the process!
