Mystery Envelope

Sisterhood of scrap a few weeks ago asked if any one wanted to join a Mystery Envelope? Well I thought sure I could handle this. Wrong!!!! I guess I am just not very creative when it come to putting things together that someone else says you need to use. Well any way I gave it the good ol college try, and this is my results. The color paper, the red behind the tag, the tag, the envelope, and the flowers is what was sent in the mystery envelope. When I first saw them I thought these are cool and I could whip some thing up with them. It has taken me about four hours to do this. I think I made it harder than what it really was. Well you ready to see my master piece?

Went for a drive

Today Eric had the day off so last night we had talked about going to Des Monies today but we changed our tiny little minds and went to Omaha instead. We can change our minds if we want to we are adults right! Well any way we went along the Loss Hills here in Iowa from Missouri Valley to Council Bluffs and guess what I found? yeap you guessed it I found some barns that I just had to take a few pictures of cause I am going to make them into 8 1/2 X11 black and white pictures and make a boarder with them. So here are my pictures for today!!!

Now this one I just had to show you the color in it cause I think it is such a pretty barn.Now for the last picture is of this horse at the white barn that just watched me like a hawk so I took it's picture too and she or he stoped watching me. It was like she or he wanted it's picture taken too. Kinda funny if you think about it.Well it is my bed time hopefully I will have some more barns for you tomorrow! Night all have a good night's rest!

Photo's of the day

This morning as normal and as a good girl I went to Church and while I was walking on the sidewalk I seen these poinsettia's that Leanna had put in our flower box in front of the Church. They look so pretty with the freshly fallen snow on them I just had to stop and take a couple of pictures. We had gotten this snow Friday night, it is our first snow fall of the 2009 year. We had gotten about 2-3 inches.

Now we are at what I did today

I really didn't do much but site in Woodhouse from 8:00 am till 11:30 am so we could get our little Red car all fixed up. It needed a doctor really bad. We ended up getting new breaks and new shoes for her which ended up costing us $775.00 smackers. I just praise God that we had that in savings so we didn't have to charge it. Thank you Jesus!! Now she runs like a top. I finally had to put the cruse on cause I was finding my self speeding which I never do. That is how good it felt not having to hang on for dear life I guess. Came home and had some lunch and watched some soaps then I did get some of my Christmas stuff down. Just mainly my snowmen. Well that is all for now I have got you all caught up on what is happening here in my little ol world. Thanks for stopping by!

Bowl Day for Iowa fans!!!

Lets get up and get a move on gotta get to Jeff and Kim's for the bowl game it starts at 10:00 am. is what heard before we went to bed last night. Eric didn't want us to miss the kick off. Well we made it in pleanty of time. The Even WON the bowl game which was even more exciting for all. Here are some clips from our day. 31-10 final score!!

New Years Eve!

Well New Years Eve was spend with our Church family. We decided to have a New Years Eve party and open it to any one who wanted to come. Well it just ended up being just about 12 of us there but we still had a great time. We played the Wii and most of them played that once or twice. Some played board games while other just sat around and shoot the breeze. It was really nice had loads of food so no one should of not of gone hungry. Of course I took some pictures so here are some that I took.

Lets get caught up on my life?

Okay I know, I know, I have very much neglected my blog but I am here now so lets get started!!! Stephanie & I took a road trip again the 28th to Minneapolis Minnesota to get mom from the train. Douglas called about 9:30 am Sunday, Dec. 28th to say mom finally was on the train. And in great style the trains were late again leaving! So I got Stephanie going and me packed and off we left about 10:30 that morning. We had to stop in CB so they could fix my glasses cause one of the arms was really digging into my ear and was starting to really hurt. I think we left CB about 12:30 or so. We finally got to our motel room about 7:30 that night, we would of been there sooner but we kinda got lost. Stephanie & I watched Wall-E. Then I called to see how late the train was coming in and they said it should be in by 9:00 am the 29th Yeah I will be home before dark. Well when I woke up I called again and now it is 1:15 pm when it will be here. I have to drive home in the dark. :0(

Well Stephanie and I went to breakfast and came back to the motel and watched another movie until check out time, which was 11:00am. So Stephanie looked up on the Internet to see if there was a Target or Wal Mart close by. And yes just about a mile or two away so went and did some clearance shoppen at both. Got some more wrapping paper and a few other things like my John Deere Tree skirt and ornaments for my kitchen. We finally went and got mom from the train and took her to eat, then we were on our way home. We had to make one main stop at the awesome Micky D's that we had found last time on our way home so we could show mom it. She really enjoyed it. Well here are some of the pictures we took while we were on this trip. We got home about 8:45 pm the 29th.

I forgot to add the sunset picture that Stephanie took for me while we were coming home.
