NINE whole days ( or has it been longer?!?!) since my last post. :( Boo on me. I have been working lots.... lots of days off for the kiddoes (on my only day off....) and a field trip with Landon's kindergarten class to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. I have been busy... we are in for some snow sometime this weekend so will upload some new pics from the zoo and Easter... I just wish there were more hours in the day... or a clone of me that I could send to work. I want to be creative (and have been... a little). Made a few of those necklaces that I wanted to make and am set on doing this wall hanging for the boys' room.I have all the goodies for it and reeeeeaaaaallly want to break into this new line of boy paper by Crate.... Here is the link to make your own:

Bass Pro Trip

After Mason's ball game on Saturday, we went to the Bass Pro Shops in Denver to stock up for Mason and Trafton's turkey hunt coming up next week.... Mason learned how to call turkey at a demonstration.... he did great!! The highlight of the trip for ALL my boys...

Never too old, right?

Fun Saturday afternoon. :)

Animal lovers...look away....

Well.... Trafton has made Mason an official hunter.... his first turkey hunt and he snagged a record turkey for both the guide and the ranch they hunted on in Kansas. The boys were so ecstatic, that even though I am not a hunter/huntress in any way, shape or form, I just HAD to be happy for him. I think he called every single person he knew to tell him about his bird. Way to go Mas.... at least I know we will never starve.... LOL

Funny video of Mason...6 years ago...

I wonder if Mason will always be my little daredevil....

I mean seriously Mason... could you NOT just go down the FIRST hill? Wasn't scary enough for you? And let's hope he learns to keep his eyes on the road later on in life...

My tray/wall hanging...

Made this tray for my sis in-law while they were up visiting from Texas over spring break. We miss them so much so I wanted to send them home with a reminder of how much our family means to us. I went a little crazy buying these trays to decorate at Christmas (thinking I would actually make some gifts...ha!!) but they always turn out cute. I need to make some more!!
