But for me growing up nothing excited me more than pink and purple, tutus, sparkles and jewelery,pretty dresses, princess stuff and tiaras! and the more ornate and fancy the better ! glitter and rhinestones and construction paper hearts and rainbows and ribbons. i loves it all!!!
so having my first two children be little girls is perfect !
So i decided that i wanted to try and put the girls in Pageants. the natural kind so far not the glitz kind.
we did our first one two months ago and i really really enjoyed it!!! getting the dress putting together her outfit. doing her hair and dressing her up. she was a little nervous but then she started to warm up. she won a crown and a sash and a few other prizes and it was really allot of fun . . . for her and I anyway . i brought Scott along and that was the biggest mistake ever !!!!!!!!!!!! he hated it. they had to have it in kinda a small room so even though there wasn't a bunch of girls it was still really hectic and he just wasn't pleased with it at all. So if we ever do any more we wont be taking Daddy!
there is another one coming up and I'm trying to decide what to put her in for the patriotic theme. shes looking forward too it to. when we asked her what her favorite part was. She was like WHEN I GOT MY CROWN !
now im off to browse Ebay and online fabric stores for dress and outfit ideas
the next one is red white and blue theme and im still trying to find somthing patriotic

late yesterday afternoon our Dog Jackson opened up our front door and ran out with with our other dog Mollie. its not unusual for that to happen cause where we live kids are constantly opening our back gate an d letting them escape but we usually leave the front door locked . normally they always come back but i would worry about them the entire time and just pray they would make it home safe.
Our Jackson was perfect ! he fit right in and was the best behaved dog i have ever owned . he could sit, stay, shake, lay down. he lie in a bed like a person and always put his hed up on the pillow and he would just walk up to me and set his sweet little face right in my lap when ever he wanted a good hug or love.. he just wanted to be with us. he never bit the kids he was right at home with the smaller ones and all he ever wanted in the whole world when we lived next to a playground was to run out and play with the kids on it. he slept in our oldest daughters bed and would wake us all up right on time in the morning and once when our house was broken into he scared scared whe ever it was that was trying to get in. he got along with every one. and he loved to play fetch. he could open doors for himself. he was just the best and most beautiful dog ever. and so so smart.
there will be a hole in our lives where he fit that we never be filled by any other pet. Jackson our love we will miss dearly.

i didn't want the thing when she gave it to me!!!! it sat under the sink in our old house from the day we moved in till the day we moved out and i never touched it!!!!!!
i even tried to give it away to a friend who sweetly kept saying " are u sure u wont use it, you might really like it " to which i responded ! " heck, what do i need that for i wont use it i have two hands and my stand mixer and an oven if i ever want to make bread !!!" she didn't try to take it with her when she went home either. so it came to the new house with us and i thought about selling it on craigslist cause i was sure i could at least maybe make 15-20 bucks on it ? or i could have turfed it back on my friend and just dropped it off at her house so she couldn't avoid accepting it.
the husband then said i should probably make sure it works before i get rid of it. i put that off for a few Weeks and then today i decided to plug it in and skim threw the manual. it seemed too simple to just add the ingredients and then press start!
so i stared with a white bread recipe that was in the book it came with. i just threw the ingredients in as directed and then i waited for about 2 and a half almost three hours and decided to check it out . i opened the lit . . . . it looked like bread ? and it smelled like bread . so i pulled it put and cut into it and then tried a piece . . . . . . IT WAS AWESOME ! lol A REVELATION !
im keeping keeping the bread machine and now I'm SO sooo glad that i didn't get rid of it!!!!!!!!!!!
in fact I'm gonna keep it out so that i can use it all the time and just use the bread from that for our samwiches ! they put SO many additives in breads that come from the store these days its kinda scary .
plus this tasted way better any way !!!!!!!!
