Okay - so it's the LITTLE things in life that make me SERIOUSLY BEYOND happy. Like no longer having to listen the screeching grinding sound of hand held cheap plastic pencil sharpeners. I broke down and bought an official looking sharpener FINALLY (used my rewards bucks, lol!). And let me tell you...the silence of it is GOLDEN!

Coupons, coupons, coupons - coupons EVERYWHERE. Stop. Needing to be put into the binder BADLY! Stop. Working on that. Stop. ...will finish soon. Stop. Maybe tomorrow...

I'm in denial - serious denial. We don't discuss it here, lol...

BRANDON is officially a freshman. Here's his schedule for the year.

We've had an INCREDIBLY busy week this week, but alas - math facts STILL await for our missy Kaitlyn!

If you ever wonder in your mind what summer consists of at the Camacho house, well, this is the epitome of summer at our house. Strange rescued stuffed frogs hanging from the dining room columns with found safety goggles...for a couple of days. Yep - that's us in a nutshell - NUTS!

We have a ladies luncheon at church tomorrow. I was asked to create the menu for them yesterday, so I've spent the better part of today finishing them up...

Today was the first service of Camp Meeting. Thank goodness Tammy had her camera because I wouldn't have had a picture for today. Here was the beautiful girls after church at TGIFridays.

Started & finished putting together a scrapbook basket for a silent auction at church this weekend.

BUSY day today - to church, to lunch, home from church to drop Thomas & Zachary off, quick shot of Cooper before I left, to Marshall's for a basket, to a baby shower, to church, back home, did a load of laundry...to bed at 10:00. AND WIPED OUT FROM THE WEEKEND!

Before cleaning at the church, Brandon and I had to run to the school to get uniforms, then to Sam's for some other supplies, then to staples for a quick run on some certain school supplies before the sale went off...can't believe I'm already shopping for those stinkin' supplies!

These might have been a 'sweet' .50/each...however; if I'm not CAREFUL they'll be true to their name and add a SWEET SIXTEEN pounds to my body! LOVE me some powdered donuts.

The kids helped me sort a few months worth of coupons yesterday - this is what's left of them on the table to still put up today!

Wednesday, July 22, 2009

The kids have been 'dressing' up this week in various costumes. Today's choice - the witch and the Jamaican terrorist.

Olivia - still my pretty little lady who is the best child I have, lol! (ESPECIALLY this week...when all the others are horrid!)

Everybody's home today and the messes ABOUND - especially by the front door where it's my most MAJOR pet peeve mess area!

Zachary spent the last several days at Meme & Papas...love when he comes home and is actually agreeable - especially to photos!

Finished all the 7Gypsies projects today...whew!

Picked Kaitlyn up from Girl Scout camp today - apparently they had water only to drink all week - so after a quick stop at McDonald's (where she chose a Frappucino!!) and quick over the shoulder blurry shot we were on our way home!

Today was declared 'hair' day by Brandon - he tried several different styles...hmmmm.....all I can say about that.

Tuesday, July 14, 2009

Photo 195

Wrestling between Kaitlyn and Cooper is a frequent sight around our house...apparently she finds pleasure in torturing the poor dog....and apparently he enjoys it?

Finished up one of my 7Gypsies projects today - using heart die-cuts from the Silhouette machine.

Kaitlyn decided that Happy Valentine's Day was a little behind the times on the message board - this is her replacement...

Saturday, July 11, 2009


Okay - so summertime means not much teeth brushing for Brandon (apparently) and goofy picture requests constantly! Today's picture - kool-aid teeth and tongue

Friday, July 10, 2009

Experimented with some die-cutting last night and decided to make a few cards with the experiments today.

My absolute favorite scent of candle - love, love, love it - and it's almost gone! Gotta find some more!

Jalepenos (to my utter amazement) are growing despite the fact that they've been dug up not ONCE, not twice, but THREE TIMES by Cooper this season! UGH! BUT, yay!

Got my silhouette machine that Thomas won on eBay for a rather decent price of a steal! ANYHOO - needed it for a few upcoming projects and he agreed to get it. My first splurge purchase in QUITE SOME TIME!

Kaitlyn decided to paint an empty box she found in my office today. She made it into a 'house' for some of her dolls. TOO CUTE!

After calling around yesterday and being unsuccessful in rounding up a flag to take a photo copy of one shown in the July CK, Allison found a flag at her church. We headed that way (at least 2 kids with me) and took a few shots in front of the flag! Zachary is a goof-ball, as usual!

Spent the 4th evening with friends who so graciously invited us to their home (Thanks Allison & Jerry!) Jerry held Brandon down while he was dodging the camera for at least one shot of him for the evening (make it month!)

MOTHER OF THE YEAR AWARD (quadruplely awarded to ME several times over, lol!) goes to RENEE CAMACHO. For putting the wrong pick-up date on the calendar for her children's last day of camp. Were supposed to be picked up today by 11:00...scheduled for pick-up (per calendar) Saturday @ 11:00. FINALLY picked up Friday at around 1:30. YEAH FOR RENEE!

Thomas and I have enjoyed relaxing, being together, and playing rousing games of pool (while I LUCKILY smoke him almost every time!) :)

After spending Monday relaxing (and walking around in Gatlinburg during the late afternoon), Tuesday movie-watching (in between the little work breaks), we went up into the mountains to Cherokee and then back to Gatlinburg with a stop at a short trail in the middle. LOVE the mountain views.

Thomas had a bit of consulting work to do while we were gone...at least it was done with a view!

This was the view this morning upon waking up in our cabin in Gatlinburg for a short getaway while the kids are at camp.

Today was kids SUPER church in the big church. The Sunday School ministry went all out and had the entire sanctuary looking like an island castaway. Zachary and Brayden played (Lord, You are Good) for the offering and Kaitlyn, LeAnna, and Dawson sang a special (How Great is Our God) before the puppets performed. It was a truly wonderful service!

Cooper absolutely LOVES looking out the windows. So much so that I've had to just resort to pulling up the shades because he gets them all messed up by the end of each day. (pet peeve of mine)...

I love it when the kids make their own lunches and I don't have to grace the kitchen 3x's per day...

Coop is content and most content to be outside...and content when outside to be chewing on stuff...

Sunlight streaming through the weeds makes them look so much prettier, lol! Just experimenting a bit.

Harvested the onions (although small) from the garden yesterday.

We were outside working in the yard this evening. Zachary decided he wanted to grab the camera and take the picture of the day (since the camera was outside with me waiting to be used for that purpose already). I think he might actually make a good photographer one day. He actually went vertical AND positioned her into the semi sweet spot that I like to have my subjects in. :)

Thomas wouldn't let me get a picture of him that was decent for Father's day...especially of his OUTRAGIOUS tie that I made for him Saturday. OH, well - it's his fault that this is the only picture I had of him...unless Tammy decides to send me the one that I took with her camera!

Tammy & I had an engagement session at Sylvia's house today. They were out of town, so the kids were able to swim while we did the session (with the dad's sitting in and watching them). They thoroughly enjoyed themselves getting into the pool in a supremely humid day! Perfect weather to be in a pool...just wish I would have been able to jump in, too!

We went to Summerfest 2009 in Ashland City last night and let me tell you...it was HUMID HUMID STICKY HOT!

The boys played in the torrential downpoar while Kaitlyn joined in at some point. Braden just watched from the front porch, though...too tom-boyish for her?
