This and That...


Have you ever not been able to find something you know you have in your house?
i for the life of me couldnt find this basket of wool noodles that i knew i had!
so my wool closet was rearranged a few times as long as lots of areas searched..
sister Jana was over and i was telling her about this and at the same time we thought of
St. Anthony and the next morning i found the basket of wool... down the basement of all places..?



Sister Jana and I went over to mom and dads for moms home made wonderful pizza! Yum!
Thanx mom and dad!!

 i can read their minds... of course we need a picture...

Grandbabe #1 rode his bike over after school and i had him start picking apples..
of course he needed his kunfu moves...


Then we went for a walk around the neighbor hood with Koa..
our neighbor hood is surrounded by the river..

a picture in friends Dave and Sandras yard!

lots of construction unfortunately.. the land was sliding into the river.

this all use to be houses and trees but the river was always trying to flood
so dike work needed to be done...

hard to see but Dads chicken yard right across the river from my house..empty now,
the neighbor is getting the land and has been working in it all summer...

 a picture of Grandbabe #2

and Grandbabe #3 shes 6 months old already!
Grandma Jody needs to get there to see her!..
