Prayers for those in Gustav's path!

Photobucket

Hi everyone. I have been following Gustav closely and have a bad feeling about it. Everyone please please say an extra prayer that this storm changes paths!! Three years after Katrina happened they are now threatened with a category 5 hit! Katrina was a 3 if anyone didn't know that!

My hubby and I have talked about what we can do if it hits the way they are predicting, and I honestly think that they are going to need all the help they can get if it leaves a trail of destruction. We talked of driving down there and volunteering or offering our spare bedroom to someone who needs it. I truthfully do not know what we can do because I am just praying that it doesn't impact them again the way Katrina did. But if it does happen I have a feeling that ALOT of people in the USA are going to need to help somehow, someway.

So either way, everyone here please just say a prayer and watch and see what happens. Everyone who is either in the Gulf Coast, or has family or friends there you are all in my thoughts and prayers and will be!

Dinner cruise pictures (LOTS of them)

Hi everyone. On Sunday hubby, the kids and I went on a dinner cruise on our tribal boat called "Spirit of the Water". It is a boat our reservation has that offers trips, dinners, or private party service to. Hubby, daughter, and I got the prime rib that was out of this world yummy! My son got walleye that also was really good. It takes about 3 and half hours to go up and down the river and threw the lock and dam. It was a perfect day to be out on the Mississippi River. Not a cloud in the sky. I took a bunch of pictures that I will share with you all.

Yesterday was my 11 year anniversary with hubby. We didn't do much at all. We hung out last night and played some games. My daughter Alexis is here right now also. My girls are constantly wanting to run, run and run some more. I get so tired somedays lol. I cannot figure out if it is stress or if it is truly a illness but I have been dragging bad for about a week now. I have to many symptoms to list. But they seem to never go away all the way. Today when I woke up I ran for about 6 hours straight without stopping once, then after switching the laundry I laid in bed and slept for 3 hours. I feel like I get no sleep. I feel like I am tired no matter what, which is what makes me believe it is stress causing it.

School starts again in 6 days. This summer seemed to fly by. It started with something life changing for myself and my family and then the rest of the summer was spent just trying to be a family and loving my kids. My daughter is so upset with my mom still because she is still drinking, sounds like worse than ever. She misses her Nana so much but knows that we will not be talking to her.

We are doing a Cars theme in my sons room and last night I went online and found the cutest images from the movie and messed with them in PSP, then today I went to the dollar store and found 4 perfect frames for the pictures and grouped them on one of his walls. So for $4.00 he has the cutest set of pictures from the movie.

It is hard to believe that Halloween, then Thanksgiving, then Christmas is right around the corner. My daughter Rayanna's 12th birthday is also 2 weeks away. We will have a sleepover party for her the Friday after her birthday. I am trying to find a stylist online through Craigslist that will come here and do updo's and nails for 6 girls. She wants it to be like a spa themed party. So the girls will get all dolled up and spoiled Friday the 12th of September ;) I hope I can find someone who will come here for a few hours for a reasonable price. I will make sure to take pictures and share them afterwards.

Well I am going to load the pictures and go make some tags. There is quite a few of them so hopefully noone has any problems with the load time of my journal. I THINK my alerts are all working again, and I am so glad! Those of you whose journals I read I consider my friends and I hate when I can't read what is happening in your life when you write.

I hope you are all having a great week so far!

Love and Hugs, Robyn

Bragging mom and beach fun ;)

Photobucket

Hi everyone I hope you are all well and having a good week! My daughter Ray and 2 of her friends went to the mall a couple days and hung out for about 4 hours. She came home and told me what happened while the 3 of them were sitting in the food court eating lunch and I had a "Wow that's my kid" moment lol! Her and her friends were sitting at the table eating lunch and the lady sitting at the table next to them walked up to them when she was done eating and said......

"This may seem strange to you three. But I would really like to just thank you for giving me hope in the future that there are still awesome kids like the 3 of you who have manners, do not swear, are not disrespectful, and your just sitting being exactly what 3 girls your age should be. Children. So again, I just want to tell you thank you."

I already knew how awesome she was, but how cool for her and two friends to be at the mall unsupervised and have a middle age woman notice and feel the need to tell them.

I took Ray and Josh to Lake Calhoun a few days ago. It is in Minneapolis in Uptown. Here are some pics......

I just snapped a bunch of pics then stuck my camera back into bag since the 3 of us were out near the bouys swimming most of the time. This is the first summer Josh has gotten into playing in sand and he still is not always sure about it but it is so cool to watch him explore new things!

You know it took him almost 7 years to even walk in grass, especially barefoot! He was scared of it and honestly just acted out right disgusted by it.

2 more weeks and school starts again. This summer has flown by! We have been painting (well I did one day with hubby) otherwise he hasbeen painting walls here for the last few days. Today he did the entrance by the garage hall. It was the same dark purple as upstairs and green. It works upstairs BUT the downstairs area has tan tones in the flooring and the dark purple was like a monster sneaking up on you when you walked in and turned around lol! So now it is a nice beige that blends well with the rest of the area.

LJ if you read this I sure hope your doing ok hun! I tried to visit you and couldn't! Ne I also got your emails and love you and will be writing you one soon ;)

Well I am off to make a couple tags before bed.

Hugs and Love,

Robyn
