it was... of those holidays that feels like you're in the olden days... with a hairdryer.. food tastes different, time doesn't fly and family is all you need. my holidays included these things: -ate lots of fab fruit -found 6 pieces of seaglass -Dad felt cold when it was hot= -Amanda&Me told Dad he has Manopause and he should put on his longShawns. (dad=Shawn) we fell out of chairs laughing at this. -crafted my butt off (Rachel, it's coming along! :) -watched Amelie 4 times. new favorite movie. -didn't get a tan. but didn't get a burn. -Penny tried to fly (jumped) off our 6ft high deck. Picture: dumbo w/o the feather. her blub protected her... no Penny bones broken. I think it was a suicide attempt. -amanda and i did a Grey's marathon. SeasonOne till 4am. loved it. -we got our new bedroom at the cabin. YAY! and i built up the walls (till drywall time). it's pretty much a cool fort right now. and it rocks. -went spontaneous swimming with my clothes on. so did Tys and Lola -we put Penny on the rock in the lake; she was not impressed (she hates water/swimming) -laughed my face off with Matt, Mom, Amanda -made a sweet rock picking bucket (2nd last photo) -no internet. but it was good. -did a beach photoshoot of my pretty momma -went in the kiddie pool with Amanda, Olivia and Kennedy today -didn't spend a cent -lola did her bidness on the lumber pile. what is with this?! -2 greek salads -listened to coconut records. a lot. new fav. -came home to 22 emails. love that. -took some happy pictures...
