These beautiful flowers were given to my by Angela after Relay. Okay, so she didn't actually pick them out for me or anything, the garden club that had had a booth was unloading their extras and she had a whole bucket of them. But they are pretty, damnit! Nicole keeps saying they are from my boyfriend, Kyle. LOL.

This is the breaking down of the Relay for Life campsite. For those not familiar, Relay is an overnight event (18 hours total) where everyone camps out and someone walks all night long from each Relay team. I think there were 44 or so teams at our location. I did a lot of night walking. It was cool, the luminarias were burning and it was quiet. Good time for thinking and also jamming out to my iPod.

This photo is from Relay for Life over in Temple Terrace. Angela, my girlfriend who runs Henry's Angels, was nice enough to let me join their relay team and come hang with them. It was a fabulous time and we did a great job raising money in the fight against cancer!

I got this awesome painting from Dee at Wilton-Faraway and got it framed. It goes so well in our Dining Room, since we also have the French cafe scene in there, too. And Perry even liked it. In fact, he picked where to put it!

I am not even quite sure what you call these, but they are also from Southern Living. Just decorative plates or something maybe. Anyway, these are hanging in the dining room above the doorway into the kitchen.

We went to see an outdoor showing of Raiders of the Lost Ark with Ravi and fam. It was pretty cool, despite the screen blowing over (really) in the middle of the movie, and it being INSANE cold by the end. The kids had a good time. Cole feel asleep on top of my towards the end. Which kept me warmer, so win-win.

Jefferson is one of the messiest eaters on the planet. Sammy cat was like that, too. They leave behind a whole collection of food that somehow missed their mouth. I thought cats were supposed to be neat? Of course this one also has no problem with crapping on the floor, too. Which I also thought cats didn't do. Apparently he's special like that.

Alright, so maybe I'm crazy, but I joined Thirty-One and Southern Living at Home. Mostly because I wanted the starter kits. Something we in the biz call "kit-napping". I know, I'm outta control. I won't mention yet the other various companies I've joined for this lately. ANYway, I am having a great time decorating my house with all the various stuff I've gotten from these companies. In this pic is an adorable decor letter R from Thirty-One and the GIANT candle stand behind it from Southern Living. Too cute!! I'll snap more shots of other stuff in the coming days.

Sherbert doesn't so much lay down as he does drape himself over things. Usually with his head hanging over an edge. He likes to do this a lot on counters and one the top of the cat climbing thing. I need to get a shot of that, actually. It's pretty adorable.

When I took this picture I had no idea what it was. I was leaving the grocery store and saw it and thought it was so odd, I had to take a pic of it. It was all kinds of strange colors, which it's hard to see in the pic. When I got home I realized it had been the smoke and such from the shuttle launch. And here I was all ready to tell Perry we'd been invaded by aliens or something. Oh well.

I have fallen behind in my posting. I am about to try to play catch up a bit and post several days worth of pics. God help me, this is a very difficult project to keep up with!!!
This shot is a random of Nicole in the car being silly. Really pleased with how far she's come in having her picture taken! :)

I had been coveting this purse so I decided to buy it. All in all I love it, though it's quite a bit larger than I'm used to. Hopefully this will not mean that I will manage to fill it with excess stuff that I don't need. But I think we all probably know better than that!

I completed my Scrapbook Treasure Hunt yesterday, so I figured tonight I would take a pic of the things I bought along the way. It seems like it's not quite as much as last year, which would make sense, I guess, since there are fewer stores participating this year. All in all, I am a little bit glad to be done but also a little bit sad. It was so much fun seeing what all everyone had!Since you can't tell what anything is in the pic, here is a general breakdown:
- 1 12x12 album
- 79 sheets of paper
- 8 bottles of stickles
- 2 paint daubers
- 9 assorted alphabets
- 6 things of various adhesive
- 5 pens
- 41 assorted packs of embellishments
See, all in all that seems like practically nothing, huh? I might have to revisit some of these stores!

Today at work I got the sweetest thing - this beautiful basket from one of the other departments that I created a website for. It was so nice of them to do that! I was so bummed that I didn't have my camera with me today for the first time in forever, so I was determined that it would remain unopened until I could get home and take a decent picture of it. Not easy to do when you work with all guys. But it survived and I even kept Perry away from it till I got my picture!

When I picked the kids up today, Owen was carrying Nicole's backpack for her. Not sure what she did to warrant such service, but it was nice of him nonetheless. I wish he acted like that more often to her, but oh well. I guess I (and she) will take what we can get!

Another in the Nicole Artwork series. It's hard to tell, what with the awesome backdrop of a Captain Crunch box, but it's a turkey. And a damn fine one if I do say so myself. She was supposed to glue it so it stood up on the box, like the box was a base, essentially, but she glued the whole thing to the box and was so pleased with it, I didn't have the heart to tell her it was not as was intended.

Yes, this is my hand. What an exciting picture, you're thinking. Well, we took it at work because we needed a hand for a poster we're creating. And my nails looked good, so we went with mine. lol. Luckily we could photoshop out all the cat scratches and such on it.

Owen has a pretty good talent for drawing. One of the things he draws most often are creatures from the sea. Perhaps because of the SpongeBob thing, I don't know. But he's actually quite good at it. This is a photo of some of his art. He tends to draw a lot of sharks and crabs...again, don't know why. And this time since Nicole and I were playing with the craft stuff, he decided to put jiggly eyes on them, too.
