Merry Christmas!

Our cutesy tree ^_^

And we made sugar cookies and the girls had a blast decorating all 6 Dz

My happy little girl :)

 and we got lots of snow (sry its sideways but blogger refuse to load it any other way)
they both got video cameras as well thx to nana! And yes they are the ones that can be dropped and not break so yay!

And i got them both there very own sewing kits full of supplies. I just love Kileys face in the above pic, priceless!

Kiley has been begging for a blond ken doll for a long time stating that her girls need a man. This guy came from the "we only send presents on bday and xmas and have no other contact with my grandkids" oma and opa in TX. Kiley promptly said she hates him as he reminds her of that little girl Justin Bieber. So I will have to see about getting her a proper ken doll lol

And this was my gift ^_^ My mom got me a gift card to Bath and Body works. I can't say enough how much i absolutely LOVE B&BW! Anyways they had there annual 75% off sale and i got to pick up 20 new items for myself ^_^

The stitching bug found me a few days ago after i browsed through a few fellow stitching blogs and saw all the pretty stitching ^_^ So for the past 2 days I've been stitching on My Lady of The Snow. See all the green highlighter? That's what i have stitched in my chances to sit. Its had to be nearly 2 years since i have worked on her so it feels good to pick her back up again ^_^

The Royal Gorge

Today my dear friend got in there bright mind that we should drive to Canon City and see the Royal Gorge and even cross the bridge! And me having a giant fear of heights said "OK" Ikr? Absolutely crazy! this thing is like 1/2 mile walk and 1,000 feet over the Arkansas River! But he grabbed my hand and dealt and i think enjoyed my fear as i squeezed his hand and winced at every creak the boards made. yes those are wood boards! You can walk or drive over the bridge. My friend took pity on me and we walked over it 3 times! we walked across once and realized the only way back was to go back across. Then we took the air tram (little red box that goes across on wires) across the gorge. I just about fainted just getting into it and since we were the only ones there we got the box and the conductor to ourselves! So we picked his brain as it went. It wasn't as bad as i thought really. Then we walked the nature path that lead to the opposite side of the bridge hence we had to go across it a 3rd time. It's worse walking across while a car is driving over as you can actually feel the bridge bouncing and moving! At that point i practically ran to the other side of the bridge. Yes i was scared even though i was assured by many that's its completely safe. They also had a zip line across it! Thankfully they were doing maintenance on it so i was spared. In the picture above you can see the wires for the zip line, i swear its longer than the bridge itself. The park also had para sailing but as that is only offered on Saturdays and we went on a Friday i was spared that treacherous fear as well. My friend was determined he could get me over my fear of heights/falling. I glared at him in disgust but truly he is the only one that could have gotten me to go to such a place and I know he would never allow any real harm to come to me ^_^
This is the view of the Arkansas River from the right side of the bridge. We took an incline train thing to the bottom so we got to be like 5 feet from the River where the fences blocked us from getting any closer. You could also see where the old train from the 1800's ran and the wall was blackened. I wish i coulda taken a picture but my phone was dying and one more picture would have made it die.

I've been crafting here and there but not enough of anything to really show. With winter coming up fast and the nights here now getting cold, my garden is now ending its growth season so i brought in many clippings from plants to try and root. This way i can easily grow them in doors and have a longer growing season next year. I never know what will root esp cause i just set them in a plastic cup of water and put them next to the window and wait. Amazingly enough 80% of them have rooted so far so i have several herb plants as well as tomato and cherry tomato plants! So excited about that! i also discovered a shop on eBay that sells seeds for flowers, veggies, and fruit for 99 cents for 100 to 1000 seeds and no matter how much you purchase the shipping is only $2.50! I went to town buying seeds for spring and am even going to try my hand at growing roses from seeds! I bought purple, blue, green, and black. I'll buy other roses from our local stores next spring so we will have a great mix of colors XD

Anyways, I'll try to post more often. Have a great weekend!

Polymer Clay creations


So this is the crafting I have been doing ^_^ I was watching polymer clay videos on YouTube and it looked like so much fun so I went to Michael's and well now i'm hooked :) I'll post the links to the ones i followed tutorials for just in case anyone wants them. The roses i had a pair of each but i think my moms kitty ran off with the other pink one so i'm still on the hunt for it. They will be turned into post earrings. The lollipops will be a necklace and dangle earrings. The chalkboard i turned into a magnet (i still gotta write on the chalkboard, oops), and the little breakfast foods i plan to put onto a charm bracelet. Also i made these cute little pumpkin earrings, the eyes and mouth are made with glow in the dark clay. The little bears became dangle earrings and the big bear on a cupcake became a necklace for Destiny. Let's see and the rest are just little charms that idk what they will become just yet. So here's the links, enjoy!

So Sorry i haven't blogged in forever. So much has been going on and i'm even crafting again! My husband is deployed for 8 months now. Oh and the girls went back to school today but i forgot to take the first day of school picture so i guess I'll take a 2nd day of school picture tomorrow morning ^_^ I had my dad living here for a few months before he moved to WA and then my mom came to stay with me. She couldn't find work so she moved to OK this past weekend. My mom and I planted a garden in April and the Acorn squash, butternut squash, pumpkins, and cucumbers have taken over the garden. But we also got planted 3 types of lettuce, 6 herbs, tomatoes, cantaloupe, pinto and soy beans, cherry tomatoes, eggplant, carrots, and zucchini. everything's been growing great too.

 These faces crack me up. They had them on all kinds of stuff.
 Had to buy the girls jingly bells ^_^ They wiggled the whole day just to jingle. So cute!

 And they got to practice there archery skills too. Destiny slayed the dragon while Kiley killed an evil cat.
 Lunchtime of smoked turkey legs and soda, yum!
 We watched Celtic Legacy while we enjoyed our lunch and after the show they autographed our CD's ^_^
 These are soy lotion candles, omg i love em!
