seven things tag...

I have been tagged by Lisa at I was asked to post seven random or weird facts about myself... here goes. 1. I have known my husband since I was in the second grade. 2.I live in a town of only 5,000 people. 3. I am a emotional eater. 4. I am mathematically challenged. 5. I color my own hair. 6. I like to listen more than talk. ( I think that is why I am having a hard time with these seven things!) 7. I can't carry a tune! wow. I am glad that is over, that was harder than I thought it would be! now on to more fun items, I just received my necklace that I ordered online from Lisa Leonard...I love it, check out her website! this picture is horrible, my initals are punched into a sterling silver disk with a sweet pearl that dangles from it..Lisa is such a inspiration!

the boys of summer

I have been wanting a flip video camera for awhile now and I got one on ebay the other day...this is what summer is all about...spending time with family at my nephew Logan's ball game. Now remember this is my first attempt at using this camera so it is a little jumpy! but I will get the hang of the arrow and take a peek.

a little place by the lake...

We are here! I love blogging up here by the lake! I came down with a summer cold..sniff. sniff. I am getting a lot of rest. This lake place was given to me and my siblings....Our parents especially my Dad felt very strongly about passing this on to the children. They bought this little cabin in 1974. It was my parents passion to fix it up and spend family time here. Now in 2008 they are both gone and three generations are spending lazy weekends here...It hasn't been completely smooth going, it can be challenging, sharing this legacy with six other families. But we will figure it out as we go...I can now see what my parents vision was...that once they were gone there would be something to keep my siblings connected..a little place by the lake!
