moving on

I hate to say it, but I'm moving on with my blogs. I will be merging from shelly'sbelly and barlow bits. That blog -- fromshelly'sbelly -- will be for family and more personal updates. I may cut it out entirely... that's to be determined later.

I have a NEW blog for my NEW shop(s). It's very exciting. I'm in the process of building and designing it, so be on the lookout for the grand opening!! YAY!

halloween cosutmes

Well, I made their costumes, however, I just bought new re-chargeable batteries and didn't realize you had to pre-charge them before use. They really should put that on the packaging. So, I only got a few lame pictures of their costumes. I say lame because they weren't very clear, or their costume was all helter skelter because of tugging. The rest of the night they did wonderfully with them. They were just adorable! Benji was a wolf and Jenee' a lamb. Benji totally got into trick or treating. He would hold up his bucket and then say thank you over and over again and then good-bye. He ran from car to car excited about all the candy. Now that's all he wants to eat, candy. I also made Kendall's costume - who you see in the pics with Benj.

She's half stuffed because she just got too hot - so she's not as poofy as she was designed to be. She was still the cutest little lamb I ever beheld.

just some pictures

just after Jenee' got her ears pierced. She was hysterical when they cleaned her ears and then put the dot on. She got them done and then saw a stuffed bear and didn't even remember whas was wrong! They are cute little pink flowers; love it!
Benji standing under the dining table at Nana's house. He was making faces at her for the camera! Too funny. Nick didn't want me to put this picture as our desktop wallpaper - I guess he doesn't like to laugh.
Jenee' eating one of the best cookies ever - Oreos! I think that's even the good cool mint ones! Ohhhh boy! I can eat a whole package by myself in about a half hour!

Our van is up and working!

We thought it was going to be a $2000 repair! No! It was $175 - much much less!

Hip-hip hooray for answered prayers! Everyday I wake up with a smile knowing that we don't have to worry about our van! We are so blessed by Heavenly Father to have our "purple bullet" back in action. She needs a bath big time!

Thank you for thinking and praying for us, that's one thing you can take off your list!

vote people!

I know, I know it's not that exciting for you, but it is to me! look at the poll to the right or I just may do something like post something really long and boring and whiny!

I'm going to be selling my goods (very exciting, i know!) and I'm wondering about my shop name. From Shelly's Belly - I do like Snap Dragon! I like too. I say it all the time (if you know me IRL you already know that). I don't want it to be confusing however my blog titled FSB and my shop something else.

think about it, and report back to me!

Proposition 8

Watch this video - it certainly makes you think about how else it could effect people. Another reason to homeschool, I say.
