Lit bit of this and that

We haven't been up too much. Just hanging out by the lake and enjoying what is left of the summer. This past weekend we had a going away party for a friend of the family. Who leaves for collage in 2 weeks. We had a great time cook-out and all that good stuff that goes along with the lake.

If none of you have had Sweet Corn Charlies you have to get some. Everything they have is so good and sweet. The corn is the BEST, Alyssa loves it. She doesn't want to eat anything but that. We had some corn out of the can last week cause we were out and she tasted it and was like "this isn't Sweet Corn Charlies." We also tried their Salsa and is also GREAT. It's not chucky at all and that's the only way Chad likes it. I'm going to stock up on corn and freeze it so we can eat on it all winter long. Check out their web site for all the location they have.

The girls start preschool in about 2 and half week, they both can't wait. One of them will be gone everyday which I can't wait for. It will give me some one on one time with each of them. And also I think it will make a big impact on Chastity, she's a little stubborn. Not for sure where she gets it from......CHAD.

Couple of week ago we went down to Heather for a few days. Which we had a blast!!! Kim and the girls came over one night for dinner. I love that we can all get together. Spent some time hanging out by the pool, and also got to see a friend from middle/high school Kelly, it was great to caught up with her. I hadn't seen her in such a long time.

We've been working on redoing the family room in the basement. I can't wait for it to be done. The new carpet is getting down today!!!! I think that I'm going to make new curtains.....will see. We've also been getting things around for a garage sale. It's crazy how many things you can have that you really don't need or use anymore.

I talked to my nephew on the phone today. He's in Germany, been there for a few weeks. He hurt his hand awhile back and they had but a cast on and kept him in Afghanistan, but it's not healing right so the sent him there. He had and MRI done on it and they think that something is wrong with his ligament or tendinitis so he'll be sent to the states at some point in time to get it fix right. It's been wonderful having the internet because I get to talk to him at least once a week. And so it's nice to know that he is safe.

Can't wait to enjoy the smell of new carpet for awhile.

Hey Rene! I'm glad you like Mike's pics! He doesn't really specialize in kids/babies... Just not his strong point. He has one baby folder in his portfolio, but his cohort Beth was with him that day. She's an amazing photographer! I'd love to refer her to you if you want pics for your girls!! She's on my facebook or you can visit her site If you're really interested, tell her I sent you :)
