This is my back raised bed garden

We just harvested a bunch of lettuce, cilantro, green peppers, 3 tomatoes from last years plant plus quite a few jalapeƱos. Oh and some Brussels sprouts. Garden looks good this year.

Hannah recieved an academic award at CBC, Costal Bend College

 There is Hannah amongst the group of award recipients and professors.
 Part of our family with Hannah and her award.
 Hannah holding her award.
     Hannah's academic award.  Outstanding student in English.  Hannah has carried a 4.0 thus far in her college career. 
     Joy and Mollie attend college in Missouri and do quite well there but for some reason the school they attend does not do this award type of thing.  Its a pity too because all of my daughter have the drive, determination and heart to achieve great things in their academic careers.  My daughter Kaleena has a masters in curriculum and has taught 5th and 6th grade math and science and has now accepted a position to teach special education.  She is now working on her certificate for that.  I am so proud of all my girls and all the things they have accomplished.  I don't want to forget my oldest Brooke who works with the elderly and is a loving and caring caregiver whose patients love her.

Fun with visiting family

 Hannah fishing.
 Mom enjoying the view.
 Hannah taught my sister Roberta the basics of kayaking.
 Roberta took off like she was born to kayak.
My brother in law Wayne had a great time fishing.
I am enjoying my family.  I live so far away that I don't get many that are able to come visit.  I think they are having a good time and will make this their destination more often.

Gift tags

Here are some gift tags I made.

I bought some embossing folders and run them through my pasta machine.  I am trying to resist buying a Cuttlebug.  I can just emboss with the pasta machine.  If I want to make die cuts I will end up buying a Cuttlebug.

Card making

I see so many people make such beautiful cards I wanted to give it a try.  I am a long way from making cards that can compare to them but its coming along I hope.  Here are two cards I made for a family in our church who had a death.
