Greetings one and all from Springfield! We arrived safely after a very long drive! We originally were going to stop at a hotel but the kids fell asleep and we didn't want to wake them only to try and get them back to sleep. We were doing good until 4:00 a.m. with only another 2 hours to drive. We HAD to pull over and rest for awhile. We'd stopped at a few rest areas and even a McD's for a snack, however this time, we needed sleep! We were able to gain about 30 solid minutes which gave my hubby enough energy to get us to his place (I continued to doze!).

My swap from Michelle at Simple Pleasures came in. I had her send it to Illinois since I wouldn't see it in Florida for a few weeks. Go to her blog and see what I sent her!
Wonderful 'spoilage' going on here! The twins loved helping me unwrap all of the goodies! Our son thought the Beeswax ornies were cookies! LOVE my Santa Doll! Thank you so much Michelle and thank you Wendy at Ravenwood Whimzies for hostessing this wonderful "Christmas in July" Swap!
I didn't get to finish this before I left on our travels. It will be full of blue bonnets from Texas and another red flower that I can't remember the name of. A friend of mine sent me this photo so I could practice honing my skills. That's a large fence post and it will have some barbed wire coming across the photo, too.
Hope your summer is going well. I'll be home in another week or two.
Going to go to Wally World and buy the kids a small wading pool. Unfortunately, the lake here is 'chocolate' and filled with bird poo. That equals to a large amount of bacteria in my book! EWWWWWWW!!!
As always, Stay Tuned!
