My Mom, Dad, Brother Mike and Me.

Can you tell it was the "Disco" era??

We're so.....shiny!

Those red velvet pants were my favorite.

I wore them until they fell apart!

My suntan came from being outside from

Sunup to Sundown everyday. We lived in the country. (Breckenridge)

I would ride my bike 7 miles into town (and back!) every day

to spend the day at the swimming pool with my friends.

I didn't come home until supper time.

Funny, I don't think I would ever allow Landon to do that these days....

Landon had the garden hose running in the back yard.
When I asked him what he was doing, he replied:
"I'm lookin' for worms in case dad wants to take me fishin'!"
Rest up Tim....

Bye Bye Blackbird!

One piece of bread and we've got a party!!

(Picture taken through the window/screen)

I've never noticed it before, but blackbirds

have dark indigo blue feathers around their heads!

All God's creatures are beautiful.

The "Bug Guy" came to Landon's school.
He had no problems holding the scorpion!!!

Landon and his cousin Grace, decided to sell pine cones
behind their Grandpa and Grandma Siegel's house.
They actually made a few sales!
When asked what they were going to do with the money
from the sales, they said : "We are going to give it to the poor people."
Photography by "TIM!" Thanks Tim! :)

Landon and his cousin Jack
went to the shed to look for a rake.
They didn't find the rake,
but boy did they have fun with Tim's toys!!

Tim and Laurel donated their old work van to the fire dept.
so they could practice using their jaws of life.

Hula Hoops!
Landon is quite the hula hoop master.
He makes us laugh so hard with his
crazy moves and facial expressions.
Go baby! Go!

Today Tim, Landon and I took a little road trip to Sissiton.
One of our favorite car games is to search for wildlife.
We spotted Swans, Ducks, Eagles, Seagulls, Geese and a Hawk.
God's creatures are everywhere!
All the water shots were taken in flooded fields and ditches!

I'm back..... :)

This is my ad from the Wheaton Gazette.

My original plan was to go to the end of the year with my purse parties. (Four years!) But, I lost so many parties this winter due to the snow, and now the flooding. (The majority of my parties are in the Fargo/MH area) So, I took that as my sign to get back into Day Care now! I will still keep my purse business and do parties on the weekends and shows. I can't give it up completely.

I put my ad in the paper on Tuesday, and by Thursday I had every spot filled. I feel sooooo blessed!! I have super great families and kids, and I am so excited to get started.

Don't you love the faded words and the spelling in my ad?

"Call now to reserve YOU spot!!!" would think one of the dc kids wrote

They're back.........
Whoever comes up with a system
to eliminate these buggers
will be one super rich dude!

Thursday, April 2, 2009

Remember these guys?
Beanie Babies!
They have brought hours and hours of joy,
to many, many girls and boys.....
