Jack Update & July 4th

Joel and I got to spend July 4th weekend with my sister and our Uncle's family! It was tons of fun when we got stuck out on the boat during a rain storm (no lightning) and when we realized that wearing our life jackets upside down was a lot easier to float in rather than wearing them properly. Jack learned how to swim and how to sleep without a cover on his crate. We brought Joel's single-man tent for Jack to stay in and it worked out quite pleasantly. We were worried that he might start baying in the middle of the night and wake up the entire camp site but he didn't! Jack has also leveled up to riding in the car in the Moffin's lap.
Without further ado, here is our July 4th weekend:
Joel holding a shivering Jack-a-mo on his lap while sitting in the boat.

Anyone know what kind of plant this is? I thought it was interesting looking.

A very seemingly happy Jack. My Cousin Julie was holding him since he was tired of walking.

A very sunburnt Moffin and my husband Joel. <3

My goofy little sister modeling her life jacket.

One of my uncle's dogs Rocky the corgi. He's really cute when he swims. His legs are short.

After about 5 attempts, my sister got up on the wakeboard the last day we were there. Go Chiles!

My cousin Neal demonstrating how to wakeboard. Makes it look easy.

My mother sitting on the boat in this charming alcove we found to anchor the boat.

My mom and her older brother, my uncle Phillip. :)

That's all the pics for now. :)


Busy Busy

Wow, life has been very busy lately! I finished Vicki's painting (and forgot to take a photo of the painting, so I won't be able to post it, sorry sorry). I am still working on my friend Hope's baby blanket, but I'm on the cusp of getting to start finishing it (binding the squares together, etc, giving it a decorative frame...ya know crochet hubbub).

I've also been quite busy finishing up stationary for my friends Erin & Brian for their wedding!!
I've did their Ceremony Invites, Ceremony Programs, and then finally I've done the Reception Cards which are little contact/info cards for the new couple to give their guests their new address!
Here are some pictures of the contact cards, because I am quite proud of them :)
178 of them!

That frilly edge, my sweet friend Heather let me borrow her craft scissors for me to HAND CUT each of these. Let me tell you all how much these scissors AREN'T ergonomic. It's starts to hurt after about 50 cuts.

Please excuse the poor photo quality on this one, I just wanted to give ya an idea of the inside design.

This is a gratuitous picture. I need to make a lightbox if I'm gonna start taking pictures of this stuff more often!

Alright, this is all for now. I'll have a ton more photos to post tomorrow if I get a chance. We spent the fourth with my family at Lake Whitney and had ton's of fun camping out there for a few days!
