And I am right smack in the middle of it! My cousin Lori and her daughter came to visit us last Saturday. We have been just REALLY having a great time! Laughing, eating, shopping, eating, swimming, eating, playing games, eating. You get the picture, LOL!
Oh and I learned something. When your putting your camera card in your computer to save the pictures, double, triple and QUADRUPLE check the file! Because POOF, all the pictures are gone! :( All the house pictures, Madi's birthday and too many more things that is really making me sad. However I am choosing to look at the positive and be THANKFUL that I have this blog and post pictures on here of our life. Because now I can save the ones I posted here and still make a nice summer photo book. How is that for making lemonade out of lemons?
Anyway, I digress.........
The kids are having blast and I plan to post some more pictures soon. But I had to show you some really fun things I have found at Sally's and Goodwill this week!
First is this red tole tray I got for 2.99, I was SO excited when I saw it sitting there!
Then I got this black one for 1.99 the next day! In case you don't know, I LOVE red and black tole ware!
Then I picked up this pretty magazine rack for 9.99. A little more than I usually spend, but it's in really good shape and I love this kind because it keeps the magazines straight and from curling. Yes, I know I'm nuts! :)
I couldn't resist this vintage Kodak camera with the case for $1.59!
Then I found this vintage 1950's Kodak Brownie movie camera with the case and all! $12! This will go in basement movie room in the new house. My husband already has a collection of movie posters he is going to put down there so I have been looking for some other goodies!
I have been a little reluctant to post because two of my blog friends have been heavy on my mind. Kristen passed away over a week ago and I was just shocked to read she had passed and my heart is aching for this beautiful family. And then I read about my good friend Jen and was really in a state of shock. It is such a tragedy and my heart just goes out to Jen, I wish I could drive there and comfort her. These situations make it hard to understand why bad things happen to such good people. I know it is all part of His plan, but still it is hard for us as humans to understand. So please keep these families in your prayers!
