The Days are flying by.....so this is a whole bunch of days rolled into one!!!!
I got the job of cranking all the papers through the Big Shot for her class! I think my right arm is much more muscular now than when I arrived!!!! These are the pretty silver paper that I 'Big Shotted' for the class - they look so pretty on the cards cause they are sooooooooooo sparkly.
Here are the tables all set up and ready to go.
We took some mushrooms all chopped up out to the chickens for a little treat. They enjoyed them!!!!! Here is Fiji having a little mushroom treat! Mork was tired I think and was just chillaxin' in the coop. Diana also received her new book Fresh Eggs Daily. There is a girl, her name is Lisa and she just published this book. I think I will grab it when we decide to get our chicks! I think sometimes Toby thinks he is a chicken....here he is lapping up the chicken feed that spilled in the stones.
Jeff has a bunch of 'critters' hanging on the walls and sitting on the shelves. Here is a havelina he got mounted after he hunted it. This bear they have had for a while, he got this one up north in Canada, and this guy is a rattlesnake that was all curled up on their back step.....not cool!
Jeff is still working on Diana's new chicken house. It's going to be great when he gets it all done. I think the chickens are going to love it - they are spoiled chickens!
Jeff's brother Tim and his daughter Charlie came over for a visit. It has been years since I saw him. (I always had a bit of crush on him!) It was nice to see him. He hasn't changed much at all - maybe just a bit of gray!
Diana and I made all of the cards that she had designed for her class to make sure all the items were in the box. I kept taking pictures of Diana while she was working and she kept giving me heck that I didn't tell her so she could smile. So I let her smile a couple of times!!!!!
We went out to the grocery store the one day and we bought a pumpkin for the girls. I thought she was getting it to carve and make a cool face on....but nope......for the chickens!!!!!! They were not as thrilled about it as Diana was....but it's fun to watch her spoil her girls.
Diana decided to put a little shirt on Toby this day! I think he likes it! I think he likes me too! He will jump up and sit behind me on the chair like he does to Diana and he will curl up beside me on the couch when we are watching a movie.
We went to the Block Party this weekend. Every year the people in the neighborhood have a block party and it just so happened that I was here the day they had this years. Jeff made Calico Beans to take - I am not a big bean girl, but I made sure to grab the recipe so I can make it when I get home.
I met a bunch of very nice people. Tim came to it as well, so it was nice to know one more person!!!!!
I am having a wonderful time (all thanks to my beautiful daughter Jade) and I can't believe it's only 3 more sleeps until I will be heading home. Jeff and I are going on a road trip - so I should have some more pictures tomorrow sometime.
Chow for now,
