Friday's picture 1/7/2010

This picture is of a tree that was at Justin's grave the first year Christmas he was gone. My dad brought this tree home because the cemetery was going to through it away. I don't know who put it there, but I put it out with our tree at home every year to remember Justin and his friends who loved him so much. I really miss him. This was the 4th Christmas without him and the pain is still just as bad. My heart is still broken. I love you Justin and miss you so much. The picture in the background is of his brothers and his son. We dont get to see his son Brayden any more. I really miss seeing him also. It just breaks my heart that he doesnt get to see his Dad and he doesnt get to be apart of our family.

Thursday's Picture

I am late in posting my picture of the day. I have been busy working. Well Wednesday night was the People's Choice Awards and of course I DVR'd it because I wasn't home. So I found a picture on the web to share. He of course was the winner. He has won more People's Choice Awards than any other male. He is the Top People's Choice and so that is my picture of the day. You can also go to the bottom of my blog and see a slide show I found of him. I found these pictures of him from the website; OhJohnny. The pictures are from Just Jared and Getty Images. No copy right infridgement intended, just share what is on the web.

Wednesday's photo

Today's picture is of my cat, we call him the OC. He is a really cool cat. One of the many things he likes today is swing, if you are sitting on the swing, he will jump up there and swing with you. he also loves to spin on the chair, he gets on the chair and sits on the chair and meows till you spin him. he is so funny. If is about 2 years old and has a brother Simon, who is white with a little black. We also have two other cats and he likes to be with Tigger, they take their naps today. So cool. Well here is a picture of him.

word/picture of the day

Today's picture is of my dog Skipper. Yesterday the pool guy said he is neurotic. I never really thought about it, but he is. He always has to have something in his mouth, shoe, stick, piece of the fence, someones body part, what ever he can find. He is a very happy dog. and very hyper. We have tried to train him, he never settles down. We take him for walks, we take him to the park and throw a ball, he runs and runs and is so tired when we get home. After five minutes at home he is up and ready again to go. He never stops. but he just loves us and all the people who give him dog treats when they walk by the side of our house. Something else is does, he is a great escape artist, now you would think when he gets loose he would run away, no not Skipper, he goes to the front door and knocks on it. Yup he doesn't leave, he will back away from the door if one of our cats are there (he is afraid). While he is out front his sister Xena starts barking, she is really good at tattling on him. She never gets loose and hates to leave the backyard with out a leash. she isn't as neurotic as he is.

Jan 2010

Starting a new year I want to make sure I work on my scrapbooking. I really want to get caught up. I am also trying to learn how to use my Cricut and my Gypsy.
I am also going to try and take a picture a day. I am thinking this will be hard but I am going to try. I am thinking less Facebook and more other stuff. lol. I am also going to work on using my treadmill every day, even if it is for ten minutes a day. I pretty much have a lot of stuff I need to do and am going to try and work on this.
