Tractors, Tractors and more Tractors!

Yesterday my husband, the kids and I had to go and pick up his antique tractors that were at a steam and gas show. The kids also got to do the kiddie tractor pull were they each got there own trophy! Little Lulu got fourth place and a pink ribbon (her favorite color) and the cool dude got second place and a red ribbon! They both did an amazing job and got really far. Great job kids!Also, here are a few more pictures of my husband and his tractors. He will really enjoy seeing this post as he is very proud of his tractors and all of the work that he has put into them.  This tractor was orange when we got it about about four years ago. My husband is "plum crazy" and painted it purple. K. was such a little dude back when we got this tractor! This is his latest tractor, below, which he bought this spring and already wants to sell it! He and his friends enjoy riding it around so I don't think he should get ride of it.  OK, enough about tractors I will adding more designs to my shop this week so be sure to check them out. Also, I have decided to start making ponytail holders to match my clothing in my shop. It was a toss up between headbands and ponytail holders and well since little lulu doesn't wear headbands for very long and she always has her hair up in a ponytail we decided on matching ponytail holders! One last thing, I will be posting my Menu Plan Monday later today after I figure out what we are having and go to the store to get some much needed food! HA!HA! (The kids keep telling me that there is "nothing" to eat.) Have a wonderful day!  Lisa

Busy summer days

Gosh it's been a while since I have posted anything! Well, we have been super busy! We just finished the 4H fair last night, my husband took his antique tractors to a steam and gas show for the weekend and I have a craft show that I am doing Saturday! This is the first time I have ever done a craft show so we will see how it goes! I still have sewing that needs to be finished and I get to pick up my business card between 2:00 and 4:00 today! I am so excited to get them also I am hoping that my clothing labels come in the mail today that I ordered from Jennifer. She was so wonderful to work with I am so grateful that I found her. If you need clothing labels check out her shop here!  
Ok, so about the fair, my cool dude was in mini 4-H this year he took three projects, a car collect, lego car model and  a wooden bird feeder. He did an absolute amazing job on all three of his projects I will post pics as soon as I can find the time to take them! Also, one last thing next week I will be posting my menu plan monday, we ate at the fair all this week so decided not to post anything. I will also begin, hopefully, a going green series with simple steps to going green! Check out my etsy shop which you can now get to by typing in I bought the domain this week for only $10.19!WOW! I purchases through Go Daddy and they helped me forward it to my etsy shop! (It was very easy to do by the way.)They Rock! I have plans to setup my own web shop hopefully in the near future. (Sept. Oct. sound good!) Well I have got to get off of the computer as I have a very busy day today! (Note to self: return library books today.) Blessing to you, Lisa

First Haircut

I have been meaning to post this since last week! Last Wednesday I finally gave the little bear a haircut! Yes, at 16 months and 11 days old I cut his hair. I really didn't intend to cut all of it, just his bangs and the top but he was being very still and doing such a good that I went for the back and sides. I would have taken pics while I was cutting his hair but, well um, he was in his birthday suit. (I was cutting his hair right before his bath.) He looks like such a little stud, I hope that nobody calls him a cute little girl anymore. I had an older lady at the store one day say "she's cute", at first I thought, who is she talking about. Then come to find out she was talking about the little bear, not lulu who was also with me! Yeah thanks lady but he is All boy, he was even wearing dark blue. Someone needs to get grandma some new glasses. Ha!Ha! 
So here he is!

One other thing to post my husband made a tire swing for the kids on Sunday! The kids love swinging on it and fighting over who's turn it is. 
Ha! Ha! It's mommy's turn so move it or loose it.

Well gotta go I have some sewing that that needs to be done. 
Have a wonderful day!!! Lisa
