DANCE PHOTOS 2009









Tessa's favorite pose: bent over a book!


SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW

This was the view from my front porch tonight. It was awesome, and I so enjoyed playing with my new camera! The first two are of the steeple of First Presbyterian and the second two are the steeple of First Baptist.


Tessa took this one with the birds.
She didn't know there were birds on the wire.

ROLODEX

As much as I love what the computer affords me as far as fun, function, and fulfillment, there is a part of me that really is technology-resistant. At work, I absolutely hate my Outlook calendar and contacts. I much prefer a paper calendar in which to scribble on or refer to as well as a good old fashioned Rolodex. There is nothing good old fashioned about my new Rolodex (thank you, Leslie!). I have had a blast decorating it in hopes of eventually adding all the information that will actually make it useful. I've included a section for all the quotes that I want to remember and a section for Bible verses that speak to me. I plan to add a travel section one of these days also.

PANTY HOSE CHOKER - QUICK TUTORIAL

1. Buy a charm at someplace like Hobby Lobby (half-price week, of course).

2. Cut a 1/2 inch strip of knee high panty hose.

3. Pull hose through hole in charm and loop through other side. Use tweezers or jewelry tool.

4. Wear it.5. If it stretches out, just wet it, and it will go back to original size.

TOTAL PROJECT TIME: 32 seconds

TOTAL COST: 75 cents plus an old pair of knee highs

TOTAL AMOUNT I JUST SAVED YOU: At least $7.50--and I know that because that is what I paid for the first one. And I know you will make more than one of these!

PHOTO SHOOT

Abby and Tessa tried out their photography skills this weekend. I think they captured some interesting shots!
