Tim and I are headed to the cities this morning to see our DD, Randi and her DH Nick. The girls are going to paint Eli's room and the boys are going to hang a few light fixtures! Randi said she bought 7. Randi also called last night and asked her dad to bring the chainsaw....the guys must need a little power tool activity too. And then tomorrow I hope to do a little shopping!!! They're only about a mile from one of the 'dale's'.
AND.... below is a shot of little Eli from this past week! Notice he is giving us the thumbs-up!!!! Yep, Eli!! We're ready for you!! Thanksgiving will be here before we know it and so will you!!

TO ACCOMPLISH GREAT THINGS, WE MUST NOT ONLY ACT, BUT ALSO DREAM; NOT ONLY PLAN, BUT ALSO BELIEVE! Anatole France
IT'S OKAY to be who you are. You only need to compete with yourself to improve and become a better person.
TREAT yourself with care: You are your best friend.
THROW away resentments you hold for others and laugh more often.
TOUCH others by being a good listener and appreciating their thoughts and opinions.
SAY no to risky behavior.
FORGIVE yourself for not being perfect.
EAT well, exercise, and take your vitamins. Your body is you temple.
REALIZE how much you family loves you.
REGULARLY re-evaluate your life to keep a clear focus on where you are going.
REMEMBER to appreciate nature, look for what is new each and every day, and hold the Earth and its people close to your heart.
Life is precious, and we need to treasure it as a rare jewel. Our experiences can help polish off rough spots and make our lives shine. What you make of your life is up to you.

I didn't want to miss a chance to enjoy one of our last warm Minnesota summer days so I took the 0pportunity to give my three nieces(they are all sisters) their first paddle boat ride!
This is Heather!! The doll my sister Deanna redressed for the Hope Pregnancy fund raiser!
Note the bunny slippers and hand embroidered quilt!
And here are Randy and Megan......
My little Harley babes!!
Did a little photo shoot at the lake! (Easy subjects to work with!)
They are gorgeous dolls. I hope they bring lots of money for the fund raiser in October. My sister and I plan to go to the dinner and auction, I'll let you know how it goes. Thanks for looking....
