New Treasury!

I just snagged another treasury. I have this song in my head for sometime now.

If you go out in the woods today You're sure of a big surprise. If you go out in the woods today You'd better go in disguise.

For every bear that ever there was Will gather there for certain, because Today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic.

Picnic time for teddy bears, The little teddy bears are having a lovely time today. Watch them, catch them unawares, And see them picnic on their holiday. See them gaily dance about. They love to play and shout.And never have any cares. At six o'clock their mommies and daddies Will take them home to bed Because they're tired little teddy bears.

If you go out in the woods today, You'd better not go alone. It's lovely out in the woods today, But safer to stay at home. For every bear that ever there was Will gather there for certain, because Today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic ~ Every teddy bear, that's been good Is sure of a treat today There's lots of wonderful things to eat And wonderful games to play Beneath the trees, where nobody sees They'll hide and seek as long as they please Today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic ~

Just thought you might want to sing along!

Happy Earthday!

Happy Earth Day!

Today is a day to celebrate and appreciate all things nature, but also a time to take note of our own environmental impacts and commit to minimizing our ecological footprint. Lets leave the planet better than we found it. A healthier earth, for our children and children's children!

Plant a tree, Use reusable cloth bags when shopping. Get energy efficient light bulbs,and energy efficient appliances. Eat organic, plant a garden not grass. Use recycled material. I know that Brandon and I use material that someone would of already thrown out. All the stuff in our etsy shop is made with Mama Earth in mind. We love our mother! Lets make a difference!

Rodendrum Garden

Rodendrum Garden at Hendrix Park. Such a sweet place to send some time. My Good friend and my two boys and I went to the garden for a little stroll. As we walked along smelling the wonderful fragrance and all the eye candy. You could see these little elf's, and they were all over the place. They were hanging from the Branches, peeking out from the blossoms. We really loved it! We picked up a few and relocated them around the garden for others to enjoy.

In this picture of my boys, they were standing in a giant family tree. Which had a huge bowl (were they where standing). They didn't even notice the elf next to them. Until I showed them the pictures. They just laughed. Elijah said: "they are just tricky" -Pretty cute! Yuh? I love experiencing the world threw my boys eyes. There is just so much great stuff to do in Eugene. We are blessed!

Kaleidoscope Kit!

This was super fun and a great way to show my two boys (Adan who is 10, and Elijah who is 5) how Kaleidoscopes are made. We got the kit from Kathryn of http://katrinastreasures.etsy.com/ "KALEIDOSCOPE TRI WAND KIT"

It was really simple and well explained in the instructions.
My boys loved it!!

We talked about reflection symmetry, rotational symmetry, and different symmetry combinations I'm not sure if Elijah got it, but Adan sure did.
I love watching the tube is rotate, the tumble with all the coloured objects in the viewer great colours and patterns. It was a great learning experience!
Did I mention it was fun??
I know you want one too. You can by a kit or one already put together on Kathryn's other shop:

Park Flyer

Today was a day of flight, the day my daydreams begin. I forced myself to buy a radio controlled airplane. this being my first attempt since bein a kid. It went a lot better this time though, I suppose I sort of earned my RC wings. but maybe that comes after successful takeoff and landings. consecutively. All in all it was very fun and I can keep it in the air for quite a while as long as I don't all of a sudden think I can do fancy stuff. So off to do some repairs to prepare for next time.
Cap. Brandon

Great Saturday!

What a wonderful day today!
My Goodfriend(and neighbor) Star, my boys and I. Went to Alsea Falls which was 13 miles past Monroe, Oregon. Such a beautiful drive from Eugene.
Just to set there and listen to the water, was soooo needed. All the moss everywhere was just so magical! My boys loved it! The water was cold. So refreshing had to get in at least up to my calves. Went up to the tallest fall and stuck my hands and arms in all over my face. Awwwww

(Keychain-first picture)Coinilingus Keyring by http://freckleface.etsy.com/
Just go to etsy and search "Vagina" you'll get seven whole pages of goodies.
Eve Ensler founder of V-Day, a nonprofit grass roots movement dedicated to ending violence against women around the world. In three years, V-Day has spread to over 300 colleges, where students and faculty have performed The Vagina Monologues on V-Day, February 14th, as part of a movement to stop violence against women. This year 2008 is V-Day's 10th Anniversary. They have raised over $50 Million dollars for local anti-violence groups, crisis centers, and Shelters.

I was lucky enough to see the Vagina Monologue here in Eugene this last February. I must say: WOW! I would urge everyone to see this. I believe it would make a whole world of difference if it was shown to high schools around the US and around the world!

We went fishing!

Wow its been so long. I haven't fished since I was a teenager.
It was Adan and Elijah's first time. They both got new poles for there birthdays.
We headed out to Junction City Pond. Only 20 minutes from Eugene. It was really pretty out there. It was pretty cold too.
We weren't there very long. Everyone was leaving. Just too cold they would say. No fish are biting.

We decited to leave. We get to the car and turned on the heater. We sat there for awhile warming up. We looked up and saw an Osprey. He just kept on circling up high over the pond. A moment later he dove strait down. Down into the pond. He come out with a huge fish Flapping between his beak. Our boys were just amazed. At least someone caught a fish today.

We'll attempt it again.
