Gardening Birthday & Gangsta Princess VBS

Yes - it was my daddy's birthday Friday - so we all got together to celebrate. I got what I thought was the cutest cake (I've decided I'm always drawn to green - green purses, & now this green on the cake) - well, my mom doesnt appreciate ANYTHING that doesnt have blue on it - so she had blue icing in the house & she "decorated" it... I use the word "decorated" loosely - VERY loosely... the dots are supposed to be FLOWERS... my mom cracks me up!


Then the twins came over & I got to love on those girls...

And they sang Happy Birthday to their Papaw & we had some yumminess with a Shaky's Pizza (If you are around the area - its EXPENSIVE but sooo yummy! 2 large pizzas cost $68.00!!! No joke)

Then the girls got to go out in the garden with Papaw... they LOVE to find everything out there...



This is what they pulled out for the day!


All in all - a great birthday celebration!!!!!!

Then we had Vacation Bible School on Saturday & like I mentioned before - I was doing crafts.

We got to draw on umbrella's since it was centered around a Veggie Tale Movie about the search for Noah's umbrella.



There are some talented kids in there!

The most talented is my buddy Jordan - one of the youth girls that you have seen some of her drawings on here if you've followed my blog - she's drawn me some AMAZING pictures... but this is her umbrella - look how artistic it is...


Ready for my creation... ITS ME!!! yeah - my tiara is crooked... I said I'm a "gangsta Princess"...


Yeah - ok - I know... I'm sticking with knitting!!! I always say I'm "CRAFTY" - not "ARTSY"... I have no drawing skills... At least I remembered ears... along with earrings! That count for anything?

It was just great being with the kids... all except for the WASP STING I got on my hand... OUCH!!!! My hand was swollen, red & numb for a few hours... dang it! I get hurt even at VBS...

So today, I'm just exhausted... we had lunch with Ryan, ran into my brother, SIL & the twins up at the restaurant, then went shopping & I found more bargain yarn... so its really been a fantastic weekend... now, off to rest.... Hope your weekend have been full of fun...

Tomorrow- "What I learned" from my lesson from church... I loved this one - so come back now, ya'll hear?

  4. I did not Shakeys even existed any more. Stan and I used to go every friday night after a movie when we were dating. We were very poor at the time and would have NEVER spent that much on one.
    Love the cake, especially the flowers and the writing!!
    Happy birthday to Pawpaw.

  7. With the beginning of summer comes the blooming of trees, gardens and flowers, which in turn attracts bees and wasps of all kinds. But that is not the end of the worry of a sting. Many stings take place during the fall months. Reason being, bees and wasps are cold blooded insects and they linger around people in order to absorb the body heat of humans, therefore increasing the chances of getting stung.

    Last week, I witnessed a 4 year old girl with her hand and forearm swollen to her elbow, from a wasp sting that she received to her fingertip the day before. The sight of her hand and arm brought tears to my eyes because I knew that if she had had Baker's Venom Cleanser Bee Sting Cure
    www.BeeStingCure.com available when see was stung, none of her discomfort would have elevated to that extreme point of swelling and discomfort.

    Our web site has under gone some new additions worth taking a look at. 1988 investigative news video footage by George Ciccarone of Cincinnati's WKRC-TV interviews founder Ray Baker, a pharmacist and others about the effectiveness of Baker's Venom Cleanser on stings in people as the stings occur. This is a must see amazing video about how to cure bee stings with Baker's Venom Cleanser. www.YouTube.com/BeeStingCure the link is also available at our web site.
