Congo is such a character

Congo is in the other room saying "Let me Out!" over and over. Then she says "Want a cookie?" Like bribing me will let her out. LOL She is soooo funny. I just got home so she has to tell me all the things she couldn't say before while I was gone.
She is giving kisses and saying "Love you". Now it's "Congo is a pretty bird." She is whistling trying to get my attention. Pretty soon she will probably start crying like a baby. That is really funny. She goes "Wa, wa, wa". I think she learned that one from this commercial that has a baby crying over a baby monitor and the people just turn it off. I can't remember what the commercial was for but I didn't like it.
She loves to immitate all the irritating noises. And she is very good at it. Although, they aren't that irritating when she does it, just funny.

I am going to go and try to knit a little bit, so I will talk to you all later.
Take care.

Those are Safety glasses on Nicks head

My mom asked me why Nick had curlers in his hair in the picture with him and his bi-plane...they are not curlers; they are his safety glasses or goggles. Smile!
Boy, would Nick be mad if he thought anyone thought he had curlers in his hair!
Just wanted to clarify in case anyone thought the same thing. LOL

I've been making lots of dishclothes and scrubber/dishcloth combinations. They turned out really nice but, stupid me forgot to take a picture of any of them. I thought I better take a picture of this one before I give it away. Hopefully I will make more of the scrubber ones soon and show you how nice they turned out. There was a blue gerber daisy, an apple, and a really pretty sunshine daisy. It was white and yellow. Posted by Hello

Nick with his Bi-Plane that he built. Posted by Hello

I'm getting mad!

I have tried to post the last picture of Nick with his Bi-Plane 4 times. It wont show up after I edit the title. I don't know why. I will try it again and this time I won't edit anything. Please Work!

Busy, Busy, Busy!

We have been so busy here that last month. With having company, pets who have died, working more, and getting new pets.
Yes, Bear our 14 year old, faithful kitty that has moved with us about 10 times, has finally died. He was getting old and we think that he might have had Kitty Leukemia. He just stopped eating and taking care of himself. We brought him in the garage that last week and one morning he just didn't wake up. He looked so peaceful, like he was just sleeping. I will miss him, but we aren't getting another kitty for a long time.
Our little hamster, Chewy, died a couple of weeks before Bear. He was almost 3 years old. They don't live for very long. But, we figured that he was full grown when we got him, because he never did grow. We have a new hamster and she is a baby. Very tiny. Her name is Ella Nibbles. She thinks she needs to nibble on everyone.
Then with our new bird, Congo, who was given to us by a friend of my husbands because she is moving to Chicago, you can say that we have had a lot of new things to get used to. Congo is very funny. She is so smart. Learns everything you say very quickly. She loves to boss Tuff around. "Get over here!", "Go lay down!" "Go potty!" " Good Boy!" etc. She repeats everything, but those are her favorites.
I will be posting some pictures of all the new animals sometime today or tomorrow.

We are taking my son to Lowe's today for his monthly building class. They have some really cool things that they get to build for free and take home. They always give them the tools they need, (ie. hammer, apron, safety goggles etc.) Nick loves it. I recommend that you go if you have kids between the grades of 2nd & 5th. They even get a cirtificate when they complete the project. Today they are building a Bi-Plane. Go to and click on How-To, then on How To Clinics. There is a schedule of things that they have available for two months.

I will post some pictures of what he builds today later.
Well have to run now.
