Summer Squash

Crissie is growing some squash in her back yard and gave me a couple to eat. Rebecca liked it.

I am not a bad mommy, she had just woken up and yes her longhorn outfit is a little small, but it is so cute and I don't take her out in public in it because of the smallness. She does look a little....white trash?

This is a card and a recipe card I made for grammie. I haven't sent it yet though b/c I'm a slacker. Love my new Unity Stamp though (the meditate one)!
Oh and I got published for the first time this month by Scrapbook News & Review an online publication. And if you feel like becoming a member, you will see me in it again in the August issue!!! yay!!
Can someone follow this link and tell me if it works for you?

Popsicles and more

Tons of blogging to do, but lots of packing I need to do too! Lots of cute pics I want on the blog, and who knows when I'm going to have my computer back up b/c I'm going to be a vagabond for at least a few weeks to a few months.
So on to pics.

So here we are eating popsicles on the kitchen floor.
So tasty!
Here is the book Bebe made of the Van Leeuwen family and RJ, so that she has pictures and names and will remember them in between visits. I have a video of this too, but I need to edit it and I don't know if it will get done this week.

Get ready for a hike. No not actually. But she liked have this on. But was also fussing about something, hence the face.

I love buffets. I think they are heavenly. But maybe it is because I like a bite of everything. Variety is wonderful! So while Matt and Allison were here, we went to brunch up in Sacramento at this really yummy place, Oasis. Rebecca ate like a crazy woman. She had cantaloupe, watermelon, french toast, sausage, bacon and more! It was DELICOUS!

Here is a picture of us on the bench. You can see Steve, Matt, Allison and her dad.

I miss snowboarding. My freshman year of college I was in a snowboarding class. Lots of fun! Here is the page I made this week. I made little snowboarding girls from my Unity stamps.

Rebecca's hair is now long enough to put in a ponytail! So that's just what I did yesterday. Here are some pics of the look and of her eating pringles. Yum!

Here's a pic of RJ on our friends springless trampoline from back in May. She really likes trampolines. I barely took any pictures in June. How pitiful! Anyways, I had my oral surgery and Dr. said today that everything looks good. Steve had a sinus infection and Rebecca had a double ear infection, so we were all on antibiotics, but everyone is doing much better now.
