Okay, how about some good things...

I thought I would put a couple things on here that help others. Here they are...

This literally just takes seconds to do........

Please tell ten friends to tell ten today! The Breast Cancer site is having trouble getting enough people to click on their site daily to meet their quota of donating at least one free mammogram a day to an underprivileged woman. It takes less than a minute to go to their site and click on 'donating a mammogram' for free (pink window in the middle). This doesn't cost you a thing. Their corporate sponsors /advertisers use the number of daily visits to donate mammogram in exchange for advertising. Here's the web site! Pass it along to people you know. . This is real and not a scam. I check it out myself.

My mom is a breast cancer survivor and I know how important early detection is. That is why she is alive!!!



Inspired by an Argentine shoe with a hundred year history and the continent's poverty and health issues, TOMS was created with a singular mission: To make life more comfortable. TOMS accomplishes this through it's ultra lightweight design and the company's commitment to match every pair purchased with a donated pair to a child in need...there are no complicated formulas, it's buy a pair of TOMS and the company gives a pair to a child on your behalf. The vibrant colors and patterns in the debut collection depict Blake Mycoskie's life changing experiences in his travels to South America where he embraced the lifestyle wholeheartedly and therefore gave back by creating TOMS - shoes for Tomorrow.

Bed in A Tree???

Yes, that is right. We had a little get away last weekend and we stayed in sort of a fleabag motel - Unbeknownst to us!! We slept in "Sherwood's Forrest" -- In a tree!! It was not the get away we were hoping for needless to say!

And, my friend at work, just got a new puppy! He is such a cutie!! Puppies are cute but they use your carpet for a litterbox and they shed. I know, I know - don't hate!! I love them, I just don't love what they can do. We have an aquarium -- more my speed!! I know babies puke on your carpet BUT they wear diapers!! I just have this clean fettish. I know when the baby comes, it will end. BUT until them...

Another Slowdown

Update on the Chinafront---It seems as if family's whose paperwork was submitted up to November 23, 2005 have now been matched. Instead of doing what has been a week at a time, it has been 4 days. So, there you go... still waiting FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!!


I know, I have not blogged in over month, I've been a bad blogger, so here is what's been going on...
We had some of our college student friends come over for a pre-back to school pool party. As you can see, it was a lot of fun...

Kelly Actually thinks she can walk on water!

Matt and his Sponge Bob Swimmies!! Very Hot -- hold yourselves back ladies!!!

Football season has begun. Cannot believe this year has gone so quickly! That means I am a football widow up until Thanksgiving so, I am keeping busy scrapbooking and trying to get caught up before we go to China. At this pace, I will be caught up on all my older stuff!! Since I have just not been in the right frame of mind to work on the nursery or any of the furniture I have to paint!

This would be my pretty pretty princess - I know, he is a manly man but such a Diva!!

The fire department came out and spritzed off the players after practice. It has been around 100 degrees here and I cannot believe those kids have the strength to continue to practice. I would have cracked by now. Go Broncos!!

Little Caroline trying to fit in like Paris Hilton at football practice. She belongs to Drew and Sara, friends of ours. If you go way back here in my blog, I have a picture of her in the hospital when she was born. She is such a sweet little thing!!

Who cut the cheese?? Scott or Ed???
The Team Picture - Crestwood Broncos!!

This was at their first scrimmage.
Now this is the cutest little group ever!!! My friend Meredith has a neice who is from China and she had a princess birthday party and they went on a carriage ride in a Cinderella Carriage. They are sooo precious. She is the one on the far left and her name is Jaelyn.


And, of course I cannot leave out my friend Shannon's twin boys. They just turned two and we got them the cars they are playing with for their birthday. They are Jack and Palmer and they are so cute!!
