This is for Nat who asked for pictures of the kids' bdays. We have a LOT of birthdays in the summer in our family. Four within 4 weeks, so it's always quite a whirlwind! So this big guy turned 16! Here you actually have to be 16&1/2 to drive, so he's not driving yet, but it won't be long (scary!). He is also technically old enough to date according to church standards, but I think that may not happen until the driving thing too. Because, who wants to take a date on the bus? Or worse yet, have your dorky parents drive you?!

This is the stuffed animal (if you can even call it that) that I made for my now 6 year old's birthday present. It's kind of freaky looking, I know, but it is based on this picture, and I aim to please:
It's a beaver that is old- hence the name (I didn't come up with that myself)
When I first did this kind of project a couple of years ago, I didn't necessarily mean for it to become a tradition, but now they are starting to expect it! It's ok, I guess I should be excited that they want me to make them stuff. Next on the adgenda- I'd really like to make each of the boys a quilt.
Well, I got Picasa figured out finally so it's time to catch up a little (I had to uninstall it and then reinstall it. Kind of annoying). I thought I'd do that first with a few random pictures!
Ride 'em cowboy! (or cowgirl)
Sometimes it's nice to have a little blogging break, but it's always fun to start up again!
