Cheyenne plays Belle

One of the things our new church does is have a block party and Easter Egg hunt. Cheyenne volunteered to play the character Belle and was super excited to have been chosen! She took the part very seriously and had a great time doing so! She wasn't feeling the greatest that morning (or for the past few weeks..belly issues) but she went out there and gave it her best! I was so proud of her!

Hello again

Wow it has been so long since I have posted here! It isn't because I haven't been crafting! I guess I just got lazy posting! Sometimes you just need to take a break and it is about time that my break is over!!!
So much has happened since my last post!  Pepper our dog took a while to adjust to his new home. Not that he was bad, he definitely wasn't. We aren't sure what his background was like but he is definitely untrusting of males. It took a very long time before he would tolerate either David or Cameron. But now he at least lets them touch him. He is definitely a mommy's boy though! He stays in has cage all day until I get home from work and as soon as I walk through the door I get a great big welcome from him!
I started a new job in February 2014. I was at my old school 8 years and things just had to change. It was to the point I hated going to work everyday. My boss was just a total.....shall we say witch. I LOVE my new school!  The directors are very supportive and I am so glad they gave me a Chance! I don't have a degree so I was concerned that would work against me. But being in this business for a while I realized just because someone has a degree doesn't necessarily mean they are any better and definitely not always smarter then me. No I didn't go to college.but it isn't because I am stupid!!!!
Cheyenne is still in Girl Scouts and taking Guitar lessons which she loves. Sadly she hasn't danced in a few years. Her old studio closed and the community center she goes to for guitar isn't quite at the level of instruction that she was used to. She started watching "Dance Moms" and recently told me she would like to start dancing again, so we will see for the Fall.
Cameron is now a Bear in cub scouts! We have a new Den Master (lol I always call him the wrong thing, I think that is his title.  He is the head honcho for our den) aanyway he really turned things around for the den. Cameron really enjoys scouts now. Through scouts we have met some great families. We are great friends with 3 of the families. The 4 of us go with all 9 of our combined children to church each week. It is a new church for all of us, each family wasn't really happy with their current church and we attended this church for Scouts Sunday and we have just kept going back. They have an awesome youth program there so it was perfect for all of us! Cheyenne and I are going camping for the week with some of the scouts from our den. One week in the woods with a bunch of little boys and us along with some other parents. It will be interesting!!!  Cheyenne is also going to Girl Scouts camp this summer. One week on her own away from home. She is excited and maybe a little nervous but I think she is going to love it there!!!!
David is still working at the prison. He seems to like it there. He has been there almost 12 years now but guess.
Oh in addition to selling Stampin Up! I started selling Tupperware at the end of January 2015. It has been a lot of fun! I just went to Springfest and received recognition for being #19 for consultant sales out of 300 people!!!! I was invited up onto stage and got a pin and chances for prizes. Not too exciting but it was still nice to be recognized!
Anyway I am going by to try to do better with updating my blog. I am typing all of this on my phone so hopefully it all works! I haven't quite figured out how to post a picture yet though so I will have to work on that. :-)
