What a Whirlwind!!

I feel as though I've just been on an exciting vacation but I haven't left town!

Alyssa's 17th birthday was Tuesday......17.........

I'm still getting used to this age as it is too darn close to 18!

We didn't do anything major for this one, just lunch with family, but it was really special.

Backing up, on Monday she got her driver's permit.  

That's probably why this week has been so difficult for me....a birthday AND gaining the ability to get behind the wheel of a car all in 2 days!!

It is exciting, scary and fun, all rolled up!!  It's like a life burrito around here!! lol!!!

As I type she is in the middle of her first driving lesson!!

......sigh.....

But on to things that don't remind me my babies are growing up!

I've picked up some neat things to try and redo!  

I have gotten so much inspiration out there that it's time that I start to at least try!!

And I'm typing this now so that I can hold myself accountable! :)

Have a super day!!!

Ladder vs. Small Car

I saw this in a parking lot last week and how could I _not_ take a picture of this level of awesomeness?

It still makes me smile!!!  :)

Fall Sky


The sky here was so pretty yesterday evening that I wanted to share!

The first few were taken from our backyard...





And the rest were taken at a local high school football stadium.

As sunset came it got even prettier!



The kickoff!!

It rained!  Not much but the drops were big!
I really like my umbrella!

Game over and the good job line commenced.
It was "our" homecoming game and "we" won..that was nice!

So, there's a nice evening in southern California!

I'm trying out Picasa 3.  I've not liked Picasa in the past but this version seems okay.
It imported these pictures into Blogger and that was nice.
