More of Christmas


At Mom’s Christmas we drew names and had to make the gifts again this year.

This is what my son, Nic, made for me.

Pretty clever!

I’m thinking that maybe his girlfriend, Megan, helped him out a bit.

DSC_0045I had Nic’s name and made him this duck tape billfold.

He loved it.

Mom gave us something for the new house.

Tears.

New Basketball Goal


This is what our basketball goal looked like every time that a big wind came along, seems like it was like this just as much as it was upright!

Here is what our new basketball goal looks like now.

Big Ran dug a hole and put some cement in it and now our goal is very secure.

Nevermind the tube socks and sandals thing that Big Ran is rockin’.

We had help getting this heavy backboard up.

My brother, Bill came over.

Madison even had a hand in getting it ready.

Big b-ball games ahead!

Nic’s Graduation


We have had another graduation in our family.

My son, Nic has graduated college!

Three down and one to go.

Here he is with his buddy , Colt.

I made him a pretty impressive present.

It is a lei made of $$$$$!!!

It was very simple to make.

You just take some thin ribbon, make a circle out of it like a necklace, then tie 3 or 4 dollar bills together in little bundles with more ribbon.  All you do next is attach the dollar bundles to the ribbon necklace and fluff them up.  You can use any amount of $ that you want.

I used ones!!!!

I am very proud of my baby.

He will be coaching football at the college that he just graduated from……………

and selling insurance door to door.

Be ready for the knock!

Outside with Pinterest


I have found some cool ideas for outside spaces on Pinterest.

Here are a few of them.

I think this planter/floating candle thing is awesome.

I think this is very clever.
The title of this picture is “Spilt Milk”.
I could never do this because Big Ran would weed eat this all down to nothing!

Easter Bunny Cake


Here it is!

I made mine white, because I am pretty sure the real Easter bunny is white.

 

He didn’t turn out too bad, if I do say so myself!

 Thanks Megan for taking the picture.

You never know what you can do unless you try.

My motto is,  “If I can do it, anybody can!”
