I am making a TuTu

I took these (above) and made this (below).

I am super excited my oldest friend (that makes her sound old. it should be longest friendship but, that sounds weird) Lisa's little girl is turning 1! Lisa is also allowing me the honor of taking Claire's year old pictures. So, well I might be going over board. I am making a black n pink tutu and making her a cake to get into! I am so lucky to be apart of this. Yippee.. I am taking CarLee with me on Saturday to do the pictures. I think its going to be a very interesting morning. Oh, and I think I might make a matching #1 for her to hold if i can find some cool paper.

My sexy Husband!

My baby under water.

She looks scared to death, but she did really well.

Aint she just too cute?
So today was the first of CarLee's swimming lessons. I feel like she did really well. It was basically her getting used to the teacher, and trying to kick her legs and go under water. A few times I thought my heart was going to stop. She screamed I need to go back to the side and I was like okay lets just wait till next year. Yet, but the end of it she decided to show NO FEAR.
She was holding on to the side going towards the ladder and well she let go. She did not sink to the bottom, she did pretty good. She was not ready to let go of the side, but she tried. I love her so much. I really think she enjoyed herself too. She talked all the way home.

Who she is.....

So we were riding in the car the other day and CarLee told me why we named Sharkbait, Sharkbait. Let's everyone remember that I had Sharkbait about 3 years before I even got pregnant with her. She was like "Mommy, Sharkbait is Sharkbait because he has brown spots." This totally through me for a loop. Sharkbait is named Sharkbait, because Lee is a little off in the head. I then proceeded to ask CarLee why Sushi was called Sushi. "Because he is yellow Mommy." So today, when all 3 of us where in the car I asked CarLee why we named Sharkbait, Sharkbait and Sushi, Sushi. This was for Lee's benefit. She answered the same way she had the other day. So Lee then asked CarLee why her name was CarLee to which my four year old amazing daughter replied, "Because I have toes." (It sounded like she rolled her eyes after answering.) She then told me and her daddy that her whole name is CarLee Michelle Minyard, but to Ms "B" is CarLee Barley. I would like to have kept going but, was unable to stop laughing long enough to ask her why I was named Kim or Mommy.

Need a New Logo?...

Check out these two blogs.. and also check out --- these are awesome logos!


Okay to this picture has really nothing to do with my post, but she is cute!
So, lately I have been contemplating the future. I need to find a new job. I need to finish my to do list. Well, okay I need to make a to do list so that I can finish that to do list. I have started a few projects while i have been off, but have really yet to complete any of the projects i have started. I guess what I am trying to do is decide a course. I am not really sure what I am supposed to be doing. I feel as if I am not sure of what I am supposed to be doing.
I am really enjoy being off, and yet I am starting to get a little bored. I have worked most of my life. Well, since I was 15 years old. Before that I was babysitting and even mowing grass. So, I am enjoying being off, but really when you have worked most of your life its kind of weird being off. I really want to find a job I enjoy. A job that makes me feel as if I have a purpose.
Also, I have been thinking about my photography alot. Should i take some classes at FCCJ? What should i do? Keep trying to get a business up and running? Should i just make it a hobby? I feel as if right now I have no direction. I would love to take a class. Yet, that cost money and so on and so on.
My scrapbooking is a little out of control, but I am totally working on that right now.
Also, Lee's grandfather passed away last week, and I have yet to really deal with that on any level. Lee has yet to deal with that on any level.

For a friend

Never will I understand why you could not stay,The world is not the same since you went away.I have not seen your sweet smile,In such a long while.Will I ever know the reason,I had you for such a short season?I go on moment by moment knowing something is wrong,Yet, always doing what it takes to stay strong.Days pass, life moves on and time goes by,and sometimes that is enough to make me cry.I hold your memory in my heart, believing we are truly never apart.I can not wait for the day,When I look at you and say,"I have missed you."and you reply, "Mommy, me too."

I have a friend who suffered a great loss, many years ago. To her I am sure it seems like just yesterday and yet so long ago. I do not know how she managed to go on after such a deep loss. We were not friends when this happened. Yet, I am deeply moved that she and her family remember Jessica in such a special way. This year they went to visit her and released ballons sending her hugs, and kisses. She still states that she has 5 children. I admire her for this (along with numerous other reasons). For any mother who has lost a child my heart goes out to you.

So the little guys are still there.

there was a bird who lived in a shoe

so I raked the yard about 2 months ago. I left my shoes on the back porch. Well moved them onto the grill so they would not get wet, when it rained. Well a couple of weeks ago we noticed a bird building a nest in them. I left them there, cause well obviously she needed the shoes. Well tonight I caught here feeding the babies. I should be embarrassed, but I am not.

Changes going on around the Minyard House

this is my first dinning room table with four matching chairs. yard sale $25.00

This is the door I got for Mothers day last year. I love it and love where we put it!

We have been doing some re-arranging and changing up at the minyard House. Its alot of fun and alot of work. I am really enjoying my time off of work, but knows the time will end all too soon. I feel like for the first time I am turning my house into somthing I have always wanted!
