Our Kitty Sage.

Our kitty Sage is a year old. 

This picture does not make Sage look like an easy going kitty but CMW can do just about anything with her add she tolerates it all. 
Her and our Dog Macy are the best-est of friends after CMW.  Sage even is the instigator of some brawls too so most of the time I don't worry about all the rough housing that is going on between them.

Sage looks large in this picture but really she is a dainty cat. 
And what a great picture of my CMW!

It's Big, it's Brown and it's Comfy.

So I found this re-purposed piece of furniture at Eco Chic Boutique here in Fargo and thought it was lovely. 
I went to look again and of course it was sold. It's not something I need and as you can see it isn't very functional as a dresser but in person it sure is beautiful.    

So the same day, Mr. JAW calls me about some furniture that is an incredible deal and sends me a few pictures. 
So here it is, it's Big, it's Brown large corduroy microfiber and it sure is Comfy!  
 I think we now have a little to much furniture for our living room but I won't complain, I have new furniture!  Waa-Hoo!  
I can now use my creative juices and move the small items out or just get rid of them!  
It makes a world of difference when there isn't a lot 'clutter'. 

Now the joke is, 'I asked for a dresser and came home with new living room furniture!'

Celebrating five years!

It was our five year anniversary this last Friday (9/9/11) and we had a wonderful time. I felt like the day was not going to end but it was certainly fun.

We found ourselves a sitter and the way we went. For lunch and a massage that is. It was great. Then we did some shopping since shopping with out kids is always enjoyable (at least for me.)!

Our evening plans found us at the company picnic celebrating 40 years. So while we had our afternoon to ourselves, I wanted to attend the picnic so we did. Wanzek always does a great job with their annual picnic and last year we missed it. Our girls had a blast with big blow up games, face painting and balloon characters.

Here is CMW with her 'puppy face paint' and her pink puppy balloon and EKW flower balloon.

At this link is one of my favorite wedding pictures. Take a look! :-)

Just thought i'd share how fantastic our day was and make a post for the memory books!

Paul Bunyan Land

Back in August the girls and I took a trip to visit my parents. I will have to say that it was one crazy trip with to many kid activities.
My mom wanted to take all her grand kids to Paul Bunyan. All find and dandy but when there is only 1 adult and 5 kids, 3 being younger then 4, I thought someone needed to go with. Low and behold, it was not me. Thank goodness. I needed a break, so did EKW.

CMW to this day still does not like the 'big man'. That is Paul Bunyan. She says, 'he is scary'. When you first come into Paul Bunyan Land, your name is taken and Paul is a gigantic statue that welcomes you with this jolly lumberjack voice, stating your name. My mom commented that each time they walked passed him, she hung on to her for dear life. (I would have a picture but my camera taking the pictures did not come back with a Paul picture.)

From the looks of the pictures every one had a great time. CMW went on all the rides possible. Her Mawga P even had to get off the swinging ship do to sudden sickness from riding the 2nd time. Poor Mawga, but she certainly was a good sport about riding rides. And a bonus! This Mawga P. also went on the ferris wheel for CMW, due to a fear of heights she does not like to attempt rides such as these but like I said, she was a good sport.

Here' the troop, my sister the only one not available.

The Mawga P with CMW and cousin J.

I believer this picture is next to big Paul and CMW is covering her ears cause he is loud.

Now that September is here, hopefully i'll be back to posting more.
But I assume, like usual my sewing will take over. :-)
