This is a pretty bowl from my grandma. I have always loved this bowl. I think so many of the things of my grandma's that I loved were from the kitchen. I spent a lot of time in the kitchen w/ my grandma.

So pretty

We've been finding a lot of glass in the yard while doing this redo. It's been interesting. I wish I'd saved all of it to make a wind chime out of it all... but I didn't think of it till just recently. We figured why back when someone had buried some garbage. That's what it looked like when they dug it up anyway. There were some bags in the mix too, and that made us really think that's what went on.
My new favorite thing:) I think I could put this on just about anything and be happy:)
Photo Collage

I am having so much fun actually understanding PSE!
It's the small things in life:)
I'm wishing now, though, that I had played w/ it more before this instead of just getting annoyed w/ it and leaving it.

"..this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus' sake, so that his life may be revealed in our mortal body."
2 Corinthians 4:7b - 11

We were reading in 2 Corinthians last night before bed and I loved this part. I had to share it with you. And it makes me think of how I need to die to my ugly, human, sinful self every day. I want to make more room for God in my life/soul/heart. I just love how this verse applies to so many different aspects of my life and all the many places I need to die and move over of there is no room for the LORD in my life.
I'm playing w/ my actions again. This was one of my favorite pictures of the day. We got rained out so had to do pictures under the car port. great, right? This is the bride's son and daughter-in-law. He was a goof ball and she was so much help w/ everything and the food all day! Fun people!

This is SOOC
Just some more fun actions. I wanted you to see the one SOOC so you can see how the actions totally change the look and feel of the picture.

Fun. I know. You're impressed. :)
Wedding Photo Shoot

I am learning there are a lot of interesting things about shooting a wedding. One, you walk in and you're just sucked right up into it and are part of the family. As if it's not odd that you're a stranger and in the house, helping, taking pictures and being introduced to different people. You're sucked right in and are an instant part of the family. And then a few hours later you leave and never really see these friendly people again. Kind of a whirlwind that leaves you with a strange feeling!

Another thing is that you're kind of expected to know who's related to who and how. And that's a trick:) I have to try hard and remember names and how someone belongs to someone else. It's so fun, though, to get to know people. And you sure to do get to know them in a situation like that!

I haven't had time to do much editing. I hope to be able to get a lot of editing done when we're on vacation next week.

I am so excited to have all these new actions! I am having fun with them... so much fun. Here are a few. I'm not good at it yet, but the more I play the more I'll learn.

Ahhhh, I am one happy girl!

Baby Addie Nona

I think this one might be my favorite. I know she's starting to get mad here.. but this face is just so cute!!! And there's a little tear on the right eye:,,( She was so patient with us for so long. What a sweetie..

Sara is such a blessing to me. I am so happy that she's finally living her dream of being very happily married and on her way to having a house full of babies. I use the term "full" lightly. but you get the picture. I feel like Sara is my sister and this little girl means to much to me because it's Sara's first, her first daughter and I know how long she's wanted this little girl. What a blessing. I am in awe of God's awesomeness in her whole life - and Him letting me share it with Sara!

Teaching myself as I go....
And rather proud of myself...

I have finally taken the time to teach myself how to get actions in to pse6 and use them! Simple if you have a class, or a teacher... but I hate just sitting around till I figure it out, and that's what I did! I sat here, till I read enough blogs and just poked around until I got it:) I know it's silly to someone who already knows pse inside and out... but I don't! This is so fun! I love knowing more and more about something and knowing I did it myself!

Are any of you into Twilight?

Some of my friends are:) And I go along with it and watch the movies because they do and it's a great excuse to get together with friends. We went and saw the movie Eclipse last Wednesday night. It was the best movie yet, of the three.

This is a picture for Raychel:)

And I liked this one cause it's kind of artsy.

I would really like to read the books because the girls say that the books are a lot better then the movies. Have you read the books? Have you seen the movies? And did you enjoy them?
