This, that and the other thing.

Sorry I haven't written in a long time. I kinda feel this is a blog for the GRAMBER Bies, and not just the Amber Bies. Though if I wait for us to do something it will take a long time, because while we have great exciting lives, we don't do much.

What DO we do you ask? Well here this should eat up some time.

We've been watching a lot of netflixs lately: Princess Tutu and Mystery Science Theater 3000 get a lot of show time in our house lately.

We play with our puppies! Cloud plays with us.

Grant went to scout camp.

I've almost reached 60k words with my novel.

Our basement is ALMOST ready for sheetrock.

I bought a new expansion pack for Sims 2, and I've also actually followed through with an entire Sim from birth to death.. it was.. boring, but I'm glad I did it.

I ate a raspberry poptart and lived.

I thought I lost my hair, but realized after taking it out that it had been on my head the WHOLE time. (only 2 other people will get this but I had to make mention of it)

Grant whooped butt on Halo!!

We showed dusts bunnies whose boss in our house.

The hubby created the niftiest music books ever.

And lastly we went to Bear Lake over Raspberry Days!! (No Raspberrys where hurt in our vacation, we all got different flavored shakes NO raspberrys)

I leave this to last because I actually have pictures of this trip \o/

The chaos!! I tell you there were 20 billion Raspberry shake stands and they were all PACKED!

I thought this was a sweet picture, I think I'll make Grant photoshop it later tonight.

I also love this picture of Kim, look at the happy!!

Two sweet girlies!!

Gegs cutie girl Brooklyn
You can't be at a beach and not bury someone
And if I had to guess I'd say Nick volunteered
Apparenlty also a beach favorite: Tourture the pug.

I think this is an awesome castle, they worked hard. And got BURNT!

So I brought something that turned out NOT to be my swim bottoms. So we improvised. Got my moms handy pocket knife from her purse and went to town on my already shredded jeans.

I'm interested to know what you grabbed by mistake thinking it was your swimsuit bottom. Was it possibly something negligee like? ;) he he he

It was slinkly and black yes. *blushes furiously*

Ah the hair, yes it was a running joke for the whole night. To make a long story short, I put an extension piece in an unusual place so when I felt the part it should have been in I was very much confused.

My favorite line of the night
"I feel weird leaving the house without my hair."

I think you life is very interesting. Especially how you ate a poptart, what could be more exciting!!! Loved the picture of Nick, well, to be more exact, Nick's head! Congrats on your words. I can't tell you how much I admire that. Is the book almost finished or just getting set up? Very creative way to improvise for your swim suit. I don't know if I would have thought of it.

You really are one of the funniest people. Most of the time I have no idea what you are talking about. But that is probably due to the fact I almost never see you. I wish I had a chance to talk to you guys longer at the reunion. I spent my time chasing down my kids. My two year old is a disaster waiting to happen. What is this about a novel and Music something or another?
