No Excuse, Just didn't feel like it! ~ Dreams Do Come True Photography ~ Bloomington, Indiana

Absolutely no excuse, just haven't felt like working on photos and posting. Instead I've been doing a lot of dreaming and reading. Been researching some other crafts to start doing, like I need more. But I really need my creative time back!!!
Thinking about taking one of three: guitar lessons, quilting lessons or crocheting/knitting classes.
  • I've always wanted to learn to play the guitar.
  • Grandma Emma tried to teach me crocheting but it never stuck. Love some of the crocheting/knitting stuff that is popular right now.
  • Love quilts! Think this talent would come in handy. I mean seriously who couldn't use a quilt.
Anyway, on to whatever pictures I feel like editing today!

Made a practice cake for Josie's "My Little Pony" party.

Josie thought we were getting ready for her party. While I was decorating the practice cake, she was getting out all of her stuff and "decorating" for her birthday. While singing Happy Birthday to herself.

These photos were taken during VBS at our church. Michelle & I were in charge of games. Josie wanted Abbie to go with us, so she ended up going with us the whole week. As well as Maddie. Maddie had a 4-H project in photography so I handed the camera over to her for her to play. So she is responsible for these photos.

Papa & Mama Mike came to stay with Josie one Saturday while Daddy & I went to get Josie's birthday presents. We went to Hobby Lobby and Daddy found this rain gauge kit for him an Josie to put together. She absolutely loved it!

Her new trampoline!

Taco's for supper, one of Josie's favorites. Right up there with her Granny.

Who's having more fun here?

Even with the heat, Josie's party turned out to be a great time. She had a lot of friends and family come to share her special day with her, and for that I want to thank everyone!
Josie stayed the night with Papa Doug and Mama Carole the night before her party. This was the first time ever of her not being at home for bed. If I hadn't been so busy preparing for the party, I don't know that I would have liked it very much. But I kept busy with decorating the cake and cleaning the house. Daddy stayed busy putting her trampoline together that Papa Doug & Mama Carole got her.
When she came home Sunday and we walked her to the side deck, she stopped in her tracks when she saw it. Her mouth dropped open and it took a minute before any noise came out and then after that, it was all she wrote. All 3 kids jumped right in it. Josie couldn't believe it was all hers. Now I have to practice taking photos in the trampoline so that I can get some good ones.
She got alot of presents and things that she wanted. She has been telling us for some time that she wanted a guitar, like Bobbie's. So when we saw some at Toys R Us I told Sandy and Little Bobbie and Uncle Rachel got it for her. If I can ever figure out how to upload videos to this thing I have her singing with her guitar and her new radio. Really getting into it!
She got a really cool M&M container from Vegas which Uncle Nathan & Aunt Emily got her, along with a robe that has came in quite handy with swimming.
Aunt 'Chelle and the rest of that bunch got her a singing Smurf from Build A Bear. That is one stuffed animal that Gertie has not bothered.

Well that's it for now. No where caught up but I've spent most of the day now doing this and I'm ready to move on! Hopefully will be back next week to get the rest caught up.
