Thanksgiving 2010 at Camp Bullfrog

Every year we have Thanksgiving at my Aunt Mere's and Uncle Don's place, at Camp Bullfrog. 
This year we had snow!

Freebies, Samples, Oh My it's Shutterfly

My hubby often laughs at me with all my free samples and coupons. But, he shouldn't laugh too hard because I have saved us TONS of money on trying new products and getting our usual products for free or practically nothing. Hey, I've won us a year supply of Honey Nut Cheerios, pasta, many diapers, lotions, and so much more!
This post is to help me get 50 free greeting cards from a website that I have used in printing photo books and photos. I'm grateful for websites who are willing to do these kinds of things for customers who like to save a buck or two.

Thanks Shutterfly!

Did Lily Do That?

How could this little 'angel'............

 do something like this............
 during her naptime?! She was supposed to be sleeping!
She locked herself in her room too! 2nd time this week!

I think she's doing it because she knows her daddy won't be home for the weekend and is testing her mother's patience! ;-)

Lily the Artist

I had Lily lay on the sidewalk and I traced her body. Then we took turns coloring and adding 'body parts'. (DO NOT judge my artistic skills! Lily is 2 and doesn't know the difference in terrible and awesome art.) 

All scribble markings were done by her: fingers, toes, knees, eyes, nose, mouth, hair, cheek, chin, dress, etc. We had so much fun doing this!

sorry for the poor picture quality. It was REALLY bright outside!

Our New Home

I've had a few requests for pictures of our new home. Here are a couple. 
(When the inside is completely unpacked then I'll post some pictures)

Lily and I absolute LOVE our backyard. We spend lots of time out here kicking a soccer ball, planting flowers, etc.

Halloween 2010

 Our little monkey

 Lily LOVED the bounce houses at the Ward Trunk of Treat

 2-Story slide, she would live on it if we allowed it!

 I loved the curly tail on the back and the banana in the pocket!
