On Sunday Kaleb played with his new Wii, which my mother was green with envy over. She is going to be 65 in October and has wanted a Wii for the longest time. She played and played and just had the best time. So my 71 year old Dad went out (with Kaleb of course) and bought her a Wii for her birthday and gave it to her early. I'm telling you it was the biggest crack up. She was absolutely thrilled! She is for sure a groovy Grammie.
I hope you all made fun, fun memories. I want to hear all about it.

This weekend my parents are coming into town for the long weekend and to celebrate Kaleb's 13th birthday (early). We're all going to go spend the day on Saturday at Bruneau Sand Dunes. It should be a lot of fun. If nothing else we'll just eat and throw sand at each other. I just still can't believe my sweet boy is turning 13. Now we'll have 2 teenagers and 1 preschooler in the house. UGH! Talk about complete opposites of the scale. :o)
Okay, gotta run (again today). Lunch with my girlfriend before she leaves and weekend prep. Tell my about all your Labor Day plans. I'd love to hear from you!
I'll post pictures of our fun.

So-o-o is everyone just dying to see the new Shimmerz colors? Tee-Hee-Hee, I know something you don't know. I am so excited to release them, and just can't wait to hear if they are loved as much as I love them. Just a little hint for anyone who has been in my "newly" painted house, two of the colors are based on the colors I used in my house.
I know the Shimmerz Design Team is going to produce some really awesome work. I'm telling you these ladies are super talented. Be sure to let me know what you think. I hope you all have fun with them.

I finally had an opportunity to use my new camera. LOVE IT! I was shocked at the detail it was able to capture. We went to Kathryn Albertson park on Sunday and took a ton of pictures. We needed some new, updated family pictures and just had a great time doing it. I was thrilled, I only had to growl "smile, like you mean it" a couple of times. :o) And every now and then tell Kaleb to smile like he saw a really cute girl. Yep, it worked. I love taking pictures of my kids. They're all so dang cute. Dave and I have been truly blessed. It's been a long day and I'm ready to crash. I'll add more pictures tomorrow. Wait til you see how it captured all of Gracie's curls. Oh my goodness!

I got a new toy yesterday. I got a Cannon Rebel camera and can't wait to use it. I was going to go out today to break it in, but thought otherwise because 1. it's so stinkin hot, and 2. I deemed today an "ugly" day. An "ugly" day is when you get out of bed, brush your teeth, put on really comfy clothes, put your hair up into a ponytail, and call it an "ugly" day. There is no make-up, no fussing with the hair, no carefully choosing an outfit (which is hard for me because I can't make decisions) and no going outside the house, because I don't want to scare small children. I love "ugly" days, and don't get them very often. So I take advantage of it when I can. Gracie came into my room this morning, took one look at me and said,"Mommy, are we just going to be ugly today?" I said, "You bet, and we're going to make the most of it." She just laughed said I was silly and went on her way. So soon enough I will venture out and play with my new toy.
