In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, and anything else that happens to pop into my head. Sit back, relax for five minutes of a day, and enjoy!

A few nice and proud moments!

 A friend of mine got this for me for no reason except she thought I "Needed it" to cheer me up.

 This is the oldest of the two boys I watched from the time they were babies!!!!  Teng and his Mom!  He graduated from High School!  (We had a gathering for him a couple of weeks ago, I will show you on another day!)  I am SO PROUD of him!  And I can't believe he graduated from high school already.  Just yesterday he was grabbing my leg as I would walk through the living room and let me drag him across the hardwood floor!
 Teng and his brother!
 Teng and his Dad!

 This tree frog hung around our patio for weeks.  I kept talking to him and taking pictures and such, and I can't find "him?" anymore....but there are about a dozen baby tree frogs on our patio now!
 Us "kids" got Mom some tickets for Mother's Day to see faux' "Frank Sinatra" in concert and My Shug and I went along.  It was a fantastic concert.
 After the show, you could go through the line and shake hands and say Hi with the people in the show.  I did not know that.  I was talking to someone in the hallway, and the young lady second from the left waved me over to the line. I walked right up to her not realizing until after that I was cutting through a line....it was a crowded hallway....anyway.....
 I said, "Amanda you have grown into a beautiful young lady and you have a fabulous voice."  
She said, "yeah I've come along way from Away in a Manger haven't I?" 
 I said, "you sure have!"  And she said.....
 
"I want you to know that you were the first person to ever put me on a stage to sing a solo, and I haven't stopped singing on stage since!"

I used to work at a church as the director of the Children's programs back when she was in about third grade.  We did a Christmas program and she sang a solo.  I remember her being very nervous but she did a beautiful job.  I was so proud of her then, and am very proud of her now.

Part II of Bachelorette party

So....Vickie, Ashley's Mom, still had her very own bridal veil from when she married Ashley's Dad.  We wanted Ashley to wear it into the casino, but Noooooooooooo!  I think she looks a little bit Madonna-ish in it, don't you?  Not Vogue Madonna, but Mother Mary Madonna. 
So we threw her in jail.  Ashley Bashley, you shoulda worn it!
Now, if you ever want to laugh until you cry....tie a banana to a rope,
then wrap the rope around your waist with the banana hanging close to the ground,
then see how far you can get the ball across the room by swinging the banana,
but you are not allowed to touch the rope with your hands.
I was afraid someone was gonna break a hip I tell ya! 
We also played a game where you had to guess if the name my sister was giving you was the name of nail polish, or the name of a porn movie! 
Such as
Topless and Barefoot
Peach Side Babe
Private Weekend (what color do you think that is?)
Sugar Daddy
Debbie does Dallas
My Very First Knockwurst
Don't Pretzel my Buttons
Deutsch You Want me Baby
Now Which ones are porn  movies and which ones are nail polish!

So, my sister and I were losers all the way around!
But we had a great time!

And my sister who claims to not be crafty made up these cute little goody bags for everyone.


We had a great time at the bachelorette party!  Wish you could have joined us. 
Wish my computer knew how to spell bachelorette because I don't and it keeps wanting to change it to baccalaureate, which seems graduation-ish and not pre-brideish.
