So Brandy who was nice enough to make my button a few weeks ago went and sent me this adorable little scrapbook with pictures of Skye inside. Do you know how much time it took to print the pictures and do this? She is the sweetest friend and has an adorable son named Grayson who keeps her very busy. You should go over and see some pictures of him. She felt bad that it was blue and not pink since Skye is a girl. Yes she is a girl but you would never know it. She is a fearless daredevil and very much a tomboy!!!

Speaking of this little daredevil you should know what she did last weekend. Beside running outside at roadrunner speed, bumping into, knocking over and doing somersaults after hitting one of our path lights ~ she chewed a wire! So over on the side of our house she likes to chase the lizards who show up. One of them always goes over and hides behind the electrical box for the path lights. See there doesn't even have to be a lizard there, she will sit and watch this box just assuming one is behind it! She must have gotten impatient and chewed a wire. Thank God (and believe I have) that she didn't chew one of the other wires which were not low voltage. We would have found her dead for sure. So a wire box has been made around the wires.

Well we didn't have any mozzarella cheese and I forgot to use the mushrooms I had but after we decided to buy this garlic bread at Trader Joe's we thought little pizza's would be good on them. We didn't even put sauce on them. I use to make English Muffin pizza's all the time when the kids were growing up. Do you remember making those? My mom use to make us these cheese things in the broiler when I was young. She would butter a piece of bread, put on a slice of American cheese and then put cooked bacon on top of the cheese and they were so good. Anyway these little things were pretty tasty the other night.

I am kind of caught up with my reading. (well that is right now at this very moment which is 3:21 on Friday afternoon) See having my daughter here does interrupt my day with more talking but that is a good thing. We even went out to Kohl's this week for their great sale and saved $174. Well actually you have to spend money to save money ~ funny how that works. We had a great time shopping at Trader Joe's too! So being behind in reading when it means I am out of the house is a very good thing! (and in case you were wondering, everything seems to be working out pretty well with them living here with us) I am sure I couldn't have done it without your prayers and support.

Oh so true Deb. Glad you had fun shopping with your girl. My mom is going shopping with me today! Fun times!

Mommy, I'm Home said...

What fun pages of Skye, Deb! (And I'm glad she didn't electrocute herself too!)

How nice of Brandy to make you some scrap Skye pages. So cute! Your pizza bread looks good, Debby and I am glad you are enjoying hanging out with your daughter....Christine

Amy said...

what a sweet friend to do that for you. That is so nice.. I am glad Skye is okay.. She needs to stay out of trouble.. I am glad you are enjoying having your daughter around.. Have a great weekend..

Holly said...

That book is so cute and I think it's better blue b/c her name is Skye and the sky is blue! :)

Those pizza things look so yummy!! I want one now!

nancygrayce said...

Wow! I'm so glad she didn't electrocute herself! When I tell hubby how much I saved buying something, he always sighs and says, you don't save when you're spending! He just doesn't get it!

Stella said...

Glad Skye is OK and her book is lovely. What a thoughtful friend you have. Your pizza looks like a quick meal after a busy day I will have to remember that.

Thena said...

Pizza looks delicious, will have to remember about the english muffins. Great easy snack for when Makayla comes in from school. Beautiful scrapbooking oh how I wish I had the patience to do it.
Have a blessed weekend!!!

Hi, Debby~

Oh, YES, I remember English Muffin Pizza from growing up. We have graduated now to French Bread Pizza! LOL

Glad to hear that Skye is okay. How horrible that would have been if she had chewed through that wire. Love the scrapbook of your precious pooch.


Ginny Marie said...

I love making English Muffin Pizzas with the girls! I have them create their own, just like my mom did when I was little!

Glad Skye didn't get hurt!

Tonja said...

Love your book!

Yes, it's a shame that the only time you save is when you spend BIG. And, they are always sure to tell you just how much aren't they?

countrynmore said...

I am glad that everything is working out with your extra tenants in the household. And your dog story struck me as funny. Not the part when he chewed on the wires, but watching the box because he knows that is where the lizards hide.

My mom got me 6 towels that she says she only paid $2.50 each for at Kohl's after all her savings.

Technodoll said...

Ohhhhh nummers! I must try that, it looks delish and, most importantly for me these days, quick and easy :-D

The Skye photo book is precious, WHAT a good friend you have! Awe!

Laura said...

Love it! All of it! That you have a wonderful, creative talented friend- that Skye made it and chewed the RIGHT wire (if she had to chew one) and that you get to spend so much wonderful time with your daughter! My mom is my best friend and we are always together! She is a Godsend watching our kiddies too! (oh that the food looks delish too!)

LindaFaye said...

I'm so happy that things are working well for you and your new roommates/family :)

My cat chews on phone cords or any cord we have around the house. If she were an outdoor cat she'd be doing exactly what Skye was doing.
