Day 179 - Artist in the Making

PandaGirl's grandmother searched high and low for this bust with dark hair for her to play with after she BEGGED for it last fall.

She never touched it.

The eyes freaked her out and she was disappointed that she couldn't cut her hair and have it grow back.

Whatever. ; )

However, PandaJOY LOVES this doll and plays with it everyday!! This is her latest work...trying to put her hair in a ponytail.  Pretty good for a two year old.

Day 172 - Whopper Winds

At 3:00 AM this tree lost the battle it fought against 60-80 mile per hour winds along with pounding hail.  Thank GOD that it didn't hit our house, our vehicles or the neighbors!!

Days 167-169 PandaGirls' Road Trip

 Visited with one of my BFFs (that's her hand and one of her sons in the background) that I've know since 1997 and haven't seen in person in over five years.  So blessed to be with this family and catch up then be able to move on down the  road a ways in the deep piney woods of east Texas to see my BFF from across The Pond who was home for a quick visit.  I stayed up until midnight with the first friend and 1 AM with the second.  God MOVED in my life and heart with my precious peeps and I am so grateful.  Me and my PandaGirls had a FABULOUS time and loved our girl trip together.  PandaPop was SICK to not be with us and see our friends, too because he and the two husbands are just as good of friends.  However, he was doing his job by accompanying the middle school choir/mission tour all week long.  We HATED not having PP with us, but I am so proud of us PandaGirls making it all on our own!  PP did get to see some other BFFs of ours from a former church in which we served while on his trip so he was blessed, too while I was SAD to have missed visiting with those friends. Whew! What a start to summer! We went in different directions across our huge state of Texas and are so glad to be back home.

Day 166 - I Heart Pinterest*

I have fallen in love with Pinterest* !!! It is so fun to go back and look at the boards I've made and to do the ideas on them or just gawk at the things I like.  It does something for my soul to have so many great things to look all together in one convenient spot. I might just tie a big red bow around my computer screen to make it complete.

Day 160 - Thanks Teach!!

PandaGirl's teacher LOVES M&Ms so we filled a mason jar with the little jewels and added a gift certificate to Brilliant Sky which is a FABULOUS educational/fun toy & game store.  We are crossing our fingers that this great teacher will move to the Pre-K class in the fall and be PandaJOY's teacher, too!

Day 155 - Summer Bliss

I can't get enough of sitting outside on a summer night just feeling the breeze....if there IS a breeze.....and thinking while I stare at the simple beauty of my sweet rainbow garden lights.

Day 152 - Summer To Do List

Most of this is for PandaGirl and I to do, but some is for the whole family and of course, we'll include PandaJOY in anything we can except going to the movies.  This cute way of making the chart is an idea I got from pinning over at Pinterest! I am SOOOOOOOOOO addicted to that place!
