The next one is her "Poster" to help raise awareness of things you can do to help the environment. I love the way she labels all her drawings!

I don't really remember who's is who's, and I know they are not all here, but some of my pictures were really blurry. Sometimes my camera just doesn't cooperate.

See here how it has gotten fluffy? It's starting to thicken....
It begins to resemble cottage cheese, and you know you're getting close. Once it starts to change, it goes fast!
Suddenly, you have butter and buttermilk. All you have to do is kind of mush the butter together into a clump and pour off the milk.
After you're done rinsing, form your butter into a ball and squeeze out all the liquid you can. Now you're done!! This homemade butter is really good on some fluffly homemade buttermilk biscuits! I've also used my butter to make chocolate chip cookies. That's Sam's favorite dessert!

And the following pictures should have some sort of warning. In the true spirit of "boys will be boys," may I present two gross pictures of "my boys being boys!"
Bubba sits on a sprinkler head and says, "Take my picture!!" So I did. Then Sammy comes along and does this. So I took another picture.
And with that, I'll say goodbye.

I told her she could pick some ribbon for the neck and ties, and she chose this black grosgrain with white flowers. Then the bottom looked too plain, so we hot glued some felt flowers from Flower Fusion on there. They are stuck together with black brads.
We took this picture before we added the felt flowers. She's so proud of her apron she helped me sew! Now maybe she'll clean the kitchen if I tell her she can wear her apron! Think so? Nope, probably not. Oh well, it was worth a shot!

When he built the cabinets and shelves, he said he was going to make some nice brackets and use a dowel rod for a puch holder, but I got tired of waiting and decided my old way worked just fine. Here is the original post when he redid my room. It was back in February. I really need to paint those shelves, but stamping is much more fun.
Here's the close up of all my punches. If I get any more, I'm gonna need another towel rod! It's a good thing those rods are pretty cheap, cause I know I'm gonna need more punches from the new catty!
And here's the close up of my ribbon.. The top shelf is all Stampin' Up! and the bottom is everything else. I'm gonna need another ribbon rack soon, too!
Now I also have a computer in my stamp room. That should make it easier when I'm trying to follow a sketch or tutorial, so I don't have to print everything out. I can just follow off the screen! Right now that computer is out for repairs, but I hope to have it back this week. Well, that's all there is, talk to you later!

On the collage page I printed out the poem "How Do I Love you?"
How do I love you?
Let me count the ways.
I love you on your very best:
and very worst of days.
I love to see you laughing
And dancing in the rain;
And even when you lose your shoes,
I love you just the same.
I love to hear you singing.
I love to see you smile.
I love the way you take each day
In your own unhurried style.
I'm happy when you're happy,
And I'm sorry when you're sad.
And even though it may not show,
I love you when you're bad.
How do I love you?
Well, now let me see....
I love the way you act so brave
When you fall and hurt your knee.
I love to watch you sleeping,
Tucked away in dreams,
I love to hear you whisper
All your giant plans and schemes.
I love the way you wear your pants
With the front part in the back.
And the way you walk around sometimes
With your head inside a sack.
I love to see you deep in thought.
I love to watch you play.
And though I'm sure you'll never know it,
I love you more each day.
How do I love you?
It's impossible to say.
for if I had a million days and
Time enough for all the praise,
I couldn't tell you all the ways...
I LOVE YOU!
We just got THE CALL!! Sam is to start his new job tomorrow morning at 7:30! It is such a relief to have an answer to prayer. Praise the Lord!
