Below you will find some photos and story of my life in 2007,
I will add more photos to the list as I get a chance...
New photos added 8/9/07


the birthday boy turns 5, when I talk to him, I feel like I speak to someone who has been around a lot longer than
that...

us at the party...


birthday boy & family with mom and dad...

brother & his wife...


brother family with mom and dad, and the birthday boy...


Grandma & baby Layla, only 3.5 weeks old in the photo

one too...we are trying...we shall see...

Sophia has the boys wrapped around her...she is so so cute, hubby loves her....


the boys hang out at the party...


great gifts and toys


I had the piņata made for the birthday boy as a gift...Bob from Veggie Tails...


I cooked for the hat party, never got a chance to make the table pretty, I ran late...but
said the food was good...

everyone was in a hat of some kind...it was so much fun...we had 28 people in our house


Tracy on the left, Scott and Baback and then Noel on the right, you remember her from my class photos
perhaps...Tracy's ear wax candle hat was so cool, a long time ago story between her and Scott...


we had ordered some cool hats from a party company to wear, they never came in time so hubby wore
one of my hats...he looks so cute in it...Judy standing behind him, wore a ken/ken doll hat, she made in
honor of Scott & Baback...


another great hat & a good hat story, everyone had to tell us how they came up with their hat


and the overall winner of the evening was my friend Baback, with his Breakfast at Tiffany's
hat, he is the best...I am going to miss you guys, the party was for them moving to another
state so Baback can get his PHD at a pharmacy school...


Here is the ring I made for my mom from PMC .999 silver clay...the first one I made I gave to
my mom in-law, that one broke, I think it needed more heat or there was a bubble in it...this one
has not broken...so I guess I have learned how to make them better...by the way check out my
mom's hand, my hands have more damage than hers, and she 63 oops sorry mom I told everyone how
old you are again...she tells me she has been taking some kind of vitamin for ever that is good for her skin
he face even looks better...Now if I could only get the information on the vitamins she is taking...flowers
are from her yard...


Here are more photos of the day Layla was born...a few minutes after she was born

with the birth...& there there is the cute Sophia all alert in the photo...lots of gorgeous
women in this family...

Brian of the Dresden Dolls on stage at the True Colors Tour, we had such an awesome time
we could not take more photos...but here is a link to who was all there, Rosie was great,
Margaret Cho was really funny, the Dresden Dolls are as good as you think they would be
Debbie Harry a lot worse than you hope for, Erasure as good as always and of course Cyndi
Lauper was the best of the best...we had a great time...

Here we are at the concert, hate this photo of me, but it was the only one we had...we had fun


Here are the goodies I made in my very short 3 hour PMC class, I am loving it...watch for some silver charms
and such from me in the coming weeks...

the last couple of weeks have been really busy, here is just one days worth of shipping
I do take special orders as you know...I love my art/job work...

And here we are with mom and dad on Father's day...


Mom and dad on father's day, only a day before he was back in the hospital (on an emergency) to have yet another surgery
on the other side of his neck to unclog a badly clogged (95%) artery...mostly due to the side effects of his cancer
drugs and or his high blood pressure...all well now and back at home...


Here is my brother and his very pregnant wife, she is due any day now...July 3rd is the date,
my brother wants her to hold on to the 7th, then the babies birthday will be 07/07/07...he says that
would be a very lucky date to have as a birthday and easy to remember...



the study of the nose continues, want to know what I mean, go down the list and read the
photo captions...here is grandma and papa and Arthur...who perhaps is going to have
a mix nose of his dad's and our family...cute boy...


sister and son Arthur with brother's son cooper...


This photo and the one below I took from the balcony of our room at the resort in New Mexico...can you say
gorgeous...life is good...

I still have a ton of photos from New Mexico, here is a white tale bunny, I did not know
they actually have a cotton white bunny tale...learn a new thing everyday...


and this past weekend the beach looked awesome in Santa Cruz...

Here is my gorgeous, smart, sexy, fun, loving husband at the beach in Santa Cruz...

and another photo of the beach...


Sister & Summer...cool photo, check all the photos close up... this family can be identified
by its nose...lol, mine is not one of theirs, mine looks like my grand father's nose...
sorry just joking girls...don't get your noses out of joint...(as you know that is a saying
referring to when folks get upset)


And here is Grandma and Summer and there it is again the nose...lovely girls, and lovely
noses too...




and here are a couple of cuties with lovely noses...Sophia and her cousin cooper...


papa, sister and Sophia and well the nose resemblance is here too...notice, lucky girl
Sophia's nose looks like her dad's...just as my sister's looks like my dad's nose...


my sister in-laws birthday was this past weekend, my sister made a yummy fruit tart...fun
was had by most, most because after the party my sister in-law got really sick & had to go
to the hospital, we thought she was going to have the baby 3 weeks early, but she stayed the
night got a lot of fluids back in her system, and a whole lot of pain later, she was sent home
she is doing fine now, waiting out her 3 weeks till baby is due...


Sophia when she was supposed to be napping and her mom was not there, grandma could
not let her cry in the bed all alone...so we took pictures and played with her, which did
not make my sister very happy...oops we broke the rules again...


my sister in-law the one with child in the photo, baked me a yummy cake for my birthday
we had to have my birthday party much later than my birthday since hubby and I were out of
town...lots of fun was had by all...


Birthday Girl turns 9...


dad & Sophia, his new love...


moms on mom's day, I hosted them at our house for brunch...


I made everything, including the quiche from scratch...it was nice...I did pretty ok for a person who
cooks glass more than any food...

after brunch we went to an amusement park, the boys decide on the game plan...


I ride the Banana boat...by myself as the rest of my family are either wimps or pregnant...


This is Greg, he trained his Dog, Cat and the mouse to live together and be ok with it...he asked the question,
if these 3 can get along, why cant we??? oh Greg is almost blind, the dog is his seeing eye dog...can you see all 3
of them napping together? awesome...peace...perhaps that is how it is meant to be, the strong support the rest...


Sandia Mountains, the view from the spa...so gorgeous...

The only sunset we actually saw, the rest of the time it was cloudy at sunset and it rained a bit

we took nice long walk, hubby took this photo of us...we had so much fun there

Roadside photo in between Albuquerque & Santa Fe...


Melinda came out from Albuquerque, about a 25 minute ride to see me for lunch & have a bead chat, we had a great time, she is awesome

She wore the goodies she made with my beads, she is so good at it...
