Dirt Magnet


I imagine you are expecting to see a picture of one of our young grandsons. But no. I'm here to tell you that my husband loves dirt as much as the next kid. And the problem with a sewer pipe gave him the chance to dig a hole. (I teased him about digging my grave since it looked about the right size.)


While he is digging and dragging dirt around everywhere, I am trying to clear it out of the house. As hard as I try, it seems it is never all gone. But then it isn't anywhere as bad as Washington D.C.  Wow. We might save our country if we were able to clear all the offices there of dirt.

Off the subject...it was the final show in the 14th season of American Idol tonight. I could hardly wait to see it, since we knew Clark Beckham. We've been watching and voting for him each week. It was a  bit disappointing to see him come in second.  But we do believe he will go on and do well.

Next season will be the last for the show. It has had a nice long run, but there are other similar shows now in the limelight. I will miss it, since it is practically all I watch, but I'm sure I'll like one of the other shows of its kind when this one is over.

123 Look at Me


More often than not these days, I'm wearing out before I can accomplish all I want to get done and I just give it up and go to bed, granted it is still seldom before midnight. The thing is, I am not getting done in a days time all I want to do! I have to trim items from my list, or the list gets longer and longer day by day.

I was only able to do one page today and this is it. Oliver was at the park and climbed up on a turtle to ride. I love his pleasant look.  He seems pretty happy up there.

We already have a train wreck in Washington, DC; and now there has been one in Philadelphia. I pray for all those who are affected by this latest train wreck.  May God bless this country and may we try to serve Him in a way that produces good.

Bed Head



This is our little Ava, sweet as can be.  I've never seen anyone so cute with a bed head.

Easter Colors




This year, I acquired a new Easter kit with really pretty pastel colors. I was anxious to use it; but the pictures I got were all boys and they were boy colors as well.  I was disappointed that I couldn't use that collection, but so glad to get these pictures. I just sat down with love in mind. There is no continuity, but I am happy with each one, individually.

I doubt if anyone could describe my style, unless it would be with the word, RANDOM.  That is me. I choose what pictures  I want to use and just start to work without any plan at all, in most cases. I am as surprised as anyone else is with how it turns out. That is creativity for you.

Love these boys and enjoy seeing their little adventures.

I will be off line for a few days, but should be back to my random ways next week.

Just One Question


Ava just has one question for us, but it is a good one. Of course when you answer, remember to whom you are talking. She is our great granddaughter; so watch your step.

This has been a special week, and a very special day at our house. And on top of that, it has been a special day for our country. I truly believe that God has sent  us our Moses. He is just the man who can hold this country together, fix our economy and health system. He is a godly man who is a great achiever in many ways. His name is Ben Carson.  Dr. Ben Carson announced today that he is contending for the head of the Republican ticket...because it is the common sense party. If you can possibly get hold of his speech today, read it. He is an amazing man who is willing to step up to the bat, not as a politician, but as a problem solver, not for the glory...but to save our great country.

God bless America.

Mario/ Apple


I'm not in the know about this. I did try to read up on it, but got lost. It seems there was some type of disagreement between Mario, the app and Apple, the Computer.  Somehow, Apple was making it hard on the little guy. Did they not want him on their iMachines? I really don't know. Even after reading. I'm not sure if it has been resolved.  However, I do know that whenever Mason goes to the Apple store, he makes a statement about the whole thing, by wearing Marion  pants.

I'm looking forward to seeing the triplets and their mom and dad soon. It's been way too long since we've been together.

First Hair Cut



Oliver got his hair cut for the first time. It was good to have Caleb get one as well. He was a good role model for how Oliver should act. They both did well. The hairdresser/barber praised Caleb for being so good in her chair. I am proud of them both. And look how good they look with those new haircuts.

Please pray for the Supreme Court and it's decision on gay marriage. Pray that God will lead the decision and keep  our churches free from governmental control.
