I Love Zinnias

I always look forward to growing zinnias around my house. They add such bright, beautiful colors and last all summer. I picked a few today and made a bouquet. They make me smile.

We were invited to spend some time on the lake with friends. It was very relaxing.

This is yet another doll I've made. My friend, Christine had a fit over the ones I posted previously and asked for one. Isn't she cute?

These are some jewelry finds I found at Hobby Lobby. I can't wait to play with these.

Riding Lessons

Aubry has been falling in love with horses for the past few years. Several months ago we noticed one of our neighbors was giving riding lessons. I kept telling Aubry I would call, but I didn't get around to it until this week. Logan agreed to be a part of this as well. So here are pictures of my 2 youngin's going on their first horse rides.

Melissa Tilley is the instructor and was very impressed with Aubry's "natural" abilities. Aubry had the horse turning right off the bat and TROTTING! Melissa said she's never had a new student do that.
But it was a fun time for the kids and we'll go back next week.

Logan and Aubry love the magazine Stuffed and we found some inspiration in the latest issue. Here's our version of a doll in the magazine that looks like Coraline.

Logan's turn

Now it's Logan's turn. He has an eye for detail, as you can see in his drawings. Here he has drawn one of his worlds, Desertex, and these are the creatures that inhabit this world.

Little Stinkers

Todd was out taking care of our chickens when along came a momma skunk and her 6 babies!  Notice the tails sticking up in the top photo.
