Lately, if I happen to get onto Henry for barking in the house, or pawing (scratching) at my legs because he wants me to pick him up - there's a little voice that scolds me with, "Hey! That's my Bubba!... Continue reading

so sorry for just replying to you - I used the Saw Tooth ring hangers - the nails just tap in gently to hold the saw tooth on, and then just a regular picture frame hook to hang on the wall. Here is the link: http://www.homedepot.com/p/OOK-20-lb-Steel-Sawtooth-Ring-Hangers-3-Pack-50203/100172613 Hope this helps!
Sherry, I don't. I would love to say that I could, but I just don't have the time to sew right now. The summer time is my only time to sew as a teacher during the school year :)

from the 34 list 7. Since I wrote about scrapbooking yesterday, it's fitting that number 7 today is about printing out photos. Back when Ellis turned 2, I created a number two out of photos for her party. I had... Continue reading

from the 34 List 5. I have been purposely making time to scrapbook again. The kits have been coming monthly, and sometimes they stack up (sadly). But when I finally make time to go through them and play - it... Continue reading

From the 34 List 3. There was a brief period after Ellis turned one that she didn't want to "rock-a-baby" (as we call it) before bed. She just wanted me to put her in her bed and sing a song... Continue reading

I started my list of 34 things like these past few posts, and then life stepped on the accelerator and the list got left in my laptop bag. And I'm okay with that. Because it stayed in my bag, I... Continue reading

On Wednesday, it poured rain nearly all morning and early afternoon. By the time it was time to take Henry on his evening walk around the neighborhood, the streets had puddled very nicely. We left the house with Henry on... Continue reading
