Shot Gun Shell Crafts!

So I have decided to abandon all my ideas about Christmas and be true to myself. This means shotgun shells and taxidermy. I love the rustic look and to honor this self discovery I will be having "Shot Gun Shell" Christmas lights. Barbwire stars and some small guns and ammo ornaments! To start this off right Tim and I began making our lights. It was very fun but I have a few more to shoot before I have enough casings.

 My kitchen is crazy.....don't judge me.

Happy...so very happy.......

These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things!

Here is something you may not know about me, I love African culture! The animals, people, art and DOGS! Yes folks I said dogs. I love animal print and I would wear those African moomooo's and head wraps. I must share with you all my most beautiful dogs. They are so spectacular. I have greyhounds! I love them, the way they move and run. Their personalities are so awesome. I wanted to share a pic of them.....

Olive is the fawn one in my lap & SweetPea is the stripped one next to me. Popeye is at the end of the bed & Sterling is the small grey one who I love as well even though he is NOT a hound......

Saturday Night Dinner

My sisters have encouraged me to blog. I realized that there is only 1 thing important to me and that's my family. So, I will subject y'all to all my wacky family antics! Starting with Dinner.......

My daughters and I began dinner with one goal in mind, FEED DADDY!!! As "Th' Man" he must be feed every 6-8 hours to avoid the transformation from this.........
To this........

Its quite scary!

So, we cooked Meatloaf. (please excuse the dirty oven)

Mashed Taters....

                                                                 and green beans.......

We set the table and started to chow down!

As you can see some of us chowed down harder than others...but in the end we were all satisfied and spent some awesome quality time together!!!!

Much Love,

Sooooo Busy

Well it's been several months since I have blogged and I thought I would let y'all know whats happin'.
..............NOTHING! I have been so busy doing nothing. Daily life is so hectic that "getting stuff done" is just a ridiculous statement. All has been well and many things have happened. First my brother in law has FINALLY married. Although I'm glad he waited. Alita is AMAZING and so perfect for him. Mike and Harmony have begun the renovation of their kitchen. I am so excited for Harmony. Mom and Dad will be going to Florida this summer for a wedding. Cici came down for a few weeks this summer. Everyone is doing well.
     As for Tim & I we have been just flowing along and trying to live through the summer. For so reason an alien invasion descended upon my house and must have switched bodies with my kids because they are not the children I dreamed of spending the summer with.....sigh. School starts soon and much to my shame I CAN"T WAIT!!!!!!!!! I will try to blog more but no promises........

The Wedding Shower.

What a good time we had. Alita being part of our family is going to be amazing!

I have no idea why I stood there at parade rest but......I did o.0
We were playing a "Get to know Alita" game.

We ate and ate until we thought we would bust!

Alita is preparing to become a "Batham Girl"

The "original Batham girl"

And plenty of blessings to end the day..........

Well, it's been awhile but I'm back. I hope that all is well with y'all and that you had a pleasant winter. Spring is here and along with that is the beginning of bluebonnets. I love our state flower. It is so beautiful. Along with Texas spring also comes the beginning of brutal hot weather and ALLERGIES! Yuck!! So in an effort to overcome discontentment I will embrace Texas with its up and downs and try not to dream of a place that is 70 degrees in the summer........sigh
