Karson's 1st Birthday and the Beach!

This is one of our twins Elisa with Karson who turned 1 yesterday. He sure enjoyed his cake and it was delicious!
If you look at the post below with the dogs swimming, this is the same pond but a few days ago our son had it dug out alittle and then added a beach area. The water is like bath water. Everyone has been having a blast enjoying the little area.
I cant believe only a few weeks ago it looked like my post below and now this. Unreal what a few things can do! I'm back to work tomorrow, vacation is over. I have mixed feelings, because the core of me is a homemaker and I never tire of being home.

Summer Livin

This is early Summer at our sons house. If you look close you can see Pheney and Bugsy romping in the pond. Pheny is out here all day long until night and I'm not exaggerating. This dog swims all day, barks at the fish and then just enjoys the wildlife. Its so fun to watch him. Bugsy our other sons dog comes out to visit and then swims with him.

Today for the first time I went swimming in the pond. It dosnt look anything like this picture now, and this was taken just a few weeks ago. Since this photo, our son has had a beach put in, filled the pond with some sand and then colored the water. I will take some photos tomorrow when we go back. It really looks like a beach now. He has umbrellas, chairs, sand toys, its just beautiful. The only thing that hasnt changed is Pheny! I had my grandaughters racing tonight and Pheny was swimming right next to them and of course I didnt have my camera but what a picture that would have been. I'm not much of a water baby, I dont even know how to swim. I brought a raft and enjoyed that. The fish come up and nibble at ya which is pretty strange.

Tomorrow our grandson turns 1 and they are having a party, fireworks and all. Should be nice and i will bring my camera and get some good photos!

Ready or Not, Fall will Arrive!

Dont be shocked but guess whose back? YEP,,little ole me. I'm on vacation this week and decided to stay home. No exotic vacation this summer.

To say I've been busy would be an understatement. Our daughter got married last month. That went well, but you all know how that takes time. (and money)

I'm just to pooped when I get home from work. I hope to change that soon also...but for now--I'll do my best to get back to blogging. I really really miss it and I really miss visiting so many wonderful blogs.

My little business is doing well. I'm getting great feedback and steady happy customers! This is what I've done this week. I'm like a store..I think ahead! Sooo, I"ve gotten my Fall candles DONE! I have Spiced Apple in a pretty Apple jar and then my favorite is the Pumpkin! Pumpkin Scented, with a happy pumpkin face and the tin hat. If you look at the hat it has sun, moon stars cutouts so when lit it should show a pretty pattern thru the hat. Since these candles are 100% Soy, you can wash the jars out, fill em with candy or other Fall pretties. I think these will do very well.

Something new I'm starting to work on tomorrow, I will be making candles for Christmas with the wooden wicks. They are rather new on the scene but the customers who buy them like them. I've boughten candles with the wood wicks and i like the crackle so I thought I would give it a try.

So, thats what I've been up to..just family life, work and then my business. We've been camping and thats always fun. I didnt get to plant flowers like I wanted to this season. I've just been to busy. I think this is the worst year for my flowers and I'm not happy.

I'll be around to check your blogs out!
