|In the background is the Big Blue Truck. This truck was my dad's|
work truck for years. It hauled his bulldozer to and from jobs everyday.
When my dad decided to retire he couldn't part with Ole Blue because we would clean it up
every 4th of July and throw candy off the back. It became a family tradition.
Dad took off the old dozer bed and converted it into a parade truck.
You can find us every 4th of July in the Centerburg and Sunbury parades. We can also be seen
at the Old Time Farming Festival Parade the 3rd week in September.
|I love my point and shoot. It fits right in my pocket and perfect for a|
day at the beach, snow tubing, taking short video clips, etc...
I don't even own a video camera.
I use the video setting and it takes the perfect HD quality videos.
|The PBP with the divider in. |
The PBP makes 18 perfect brownies.
|The PBP has a break away bottom.|
|Look at those perfect brownies! Perfectly cut!|
|This picture does not really do the couch justice.|
It was hard to get the lighting right and my camera set right because I was using my Nikon point and shoot.
It does not let me custom change things.
Basically I was too lazy to change the lens on my camera to the regular one.
(Scott, if you are reading this, it is a hint that I need a lens like the one Billie currently has on her camera. Hint Hint)
The couch is chocolate with lime green pillows.

|A group of friends from Centerburg rented out Snow Trails for a few hours to|
have some fun. It was a beautiful day to snow tube. The sun was shining, it was warm, and good friends laughing and having good family fun.
|Shells Olivia collected on the beach.|

|Putting sand in a bucket.|
|Olivia and Ryan building a drip sand castle.|
|Ethan digging a hole to China.|
|Don't you wish you were there right now?|
|I wish I had some really good chocolate to photograph but|
I have decided I am addicted and I currently do not have any of the GOOD stuff
in the house. I had to settle for taking a picture of chocolate chips.
I really LOVE Lindor Truffles!
***No chocolate was harmed or eaten for this photo shoot. ***
|This is literally the best toothbrush I have ever owned!|
They are totally worth the money.
My mouth has never felt so clean and my teeth have never been shinier.
Santa brought the rest of the family one for Christmas.
I collect paperweights, but not just any paperweights.
I don't like ones with flowers, fish, butterflies, sea horses,
etc... in them. I like swirls and color.
These are just a few of my collection.
|Karg is on of my favorite paperweight artist. |
I like how Karg twists the
glass to make swirls and bubbles so I gave it a try.
I own 5 Karg paperweights.
Karg did not make this one...
My sister Jill and I took a class at Glass Axis in Columbus a few years ago to learn
how to make our own paperweights. This is my design I came up with inspired by Karg.
|Dale Chihuly is another glass artist who inspires me.|
I love the movement of the glass he can accomplish.
I know what you are thinking...
Did I make this?
This is not a real Chihuly.
I can not justify spending a few thousand dollars
on a piece of glass to put in my house that there is a chance
a kid will break.
This is a vase I bought at...
Are you ready???
The price was $9.99. The sticker is still on the bottom.
It doesn't matter to me that it is not a "real" Chihuly. I still like it.
|Bellagio Casino in Vegas has an awesome Chihuly display on their|
ceiling. This is a picture I took of the ceiling in the Bellagio lobby.
If you are ever in Vegas you need to check it out!
It truly is amazing and this picture does not do it justice.
|Ethan loves being outside. |
Making a silly face because I asked him if I could take his picture and this is his "HURRY UP" face.
|Dirt bike riding with Dad. Do I see air under those tires?|
|It is not natural for a boy to have such long eyelashes.|
|I love that face!|
|Isn't he a cutie? |
Ethan loves water of any kind whether it is snow, ice or liquid
you can always find him
playing with some state of water.
I love this grin on his face.
He is such a sweet, funny boy.
I LOVE YOU, E-MAN!
|I did not take this picture but YES those are her real eyelashes. |

|Olivia was mad at me. Can you tell?|
This is her mad, irritated face.
|My silly girl. Always making funny faces.|
|Trying on hats. Olivia looks good in anything. |
I love that smile!
|My beautiful girl! |
I LOVE YOU, OLIVIA!
