Here are some random things that have been going on around here.  I need to blog about the rest of our Florida trip, but I'm procrastinating.  :-)

We've had some strong storms lately, and there have been some very neat looking clouds.

The kids got a color stick for campfires, and we tried it out one evening.  You put the stick in the fire and the flames change colors.  I couldn't get a great picture, but you can see the blue flame in the center of the picture, near the top. 

I cast on the Three Tams pattern and have been making fairly good progress on it.  Using 2 yarns slows my knitting down a bit, but I've been able to knit several rows each night. 

Kylee is going to sew a dress to enter in our county fair, so we started working on it the other day.  I helped out with cutting out the pattern pieces.

I'll post pics of the progress on the dress.  I love the fabric, she did a great job picking it out!

I painted her nails to look like strawberries.  I used red nail polish, and the green and black are just acrylic paint.  I covered everything with a coat of clear so it'd hopefully stay around longer.

I'll end with a picture of Elmer, taken by David.

Those cloud photos are really awesome. I swear I saw Toto in the second one!! Love the fingernails you gave Kylee and that difficult looking Tam! How cool to have sewing pass along in the family! Hmmm.......who's hands and forearms do those in the photo resemble?? Pretty neat!! Elmer is so beautiful! I hate to see the gray in his muzzle... He has to stay young forever!! Love you my talented girgle! Momma
