I found this a few months ago, and well I love it. I showed it to Miss Em, our own little girl with glasses and she loves it. All the girls love it. Shawn really is outnumbered in our house when it comes to choice of music. Poor guy.

We love books in our house.
One of our favorite things is going to the Library. We are really lucky that our Library has a Bookmobile. A Library on wheels.
During the School year the bookmobile would be parked outside the school every Tuesday. That day the girls and I would pick Miss Em up from school and then head over and look for some great books for the week.
The Bookmobile is celebrating 25yrs.
The Girls and some of our friends were asked if they would like their picture taken for the July and August Summer Happening (the Library Newsletter).
So here they are!

This is Becca. She is sweet, loveable, blonde and a keeper.
Here is a peek into a week with our little monkey!
Sunday: Becca decided she just wasn't clean enough after having her bath. With Sunday dress on and hair done, she needed to have another bath with Juju. Clothes and all!
Monday: She is quite the artist. Very creative. She loves to work on blank canvases. Her own arms and feet are perfect for that!
Tuesday: One of her favorite past times is working in the garden. We found the lettuce she planted under the stairs and deck.
Wednesday: When her body is covered, the next best place to express creativity is tile and carpet. Big Sisters are great clean-up crews.
Thursday: Did you know that Big Sisters make great punching bags! When your small you can hit them again and again and again and they won't hit back. Sometimes they will even just sit there! They make little noises, and say things like "ouch" "that hurt" "MOM!!!" but for the most part they just take it. And it's pretty funny!
Friday: My sewing machine is white. Kind of plain. It needed some sprucing up. Oh and hair gel is not just good for your hair, but for your sewing machine too! I think it's quite the improvement.
Saturday: Bandaids make great Stickers. Especially Scooby Doo Bandaids. The kitchen cupboards needed some sprucing up. (They were everywhere)

The girls got held a barn owl named Alex
we picked strawberries and made strawberry blueberry jam!

Carissa and Luke invited us to go to Montana with them. We had a great time. Fed Ducks, slipped n' slide, the water park, some fine dining ;) and we got some fine family shots too. Thanks Carissa.
(I should have uploaded them to flickr first. The actual colour of these shots are amazing.)
