Scottie items at Hobby Lobby

Large stocking holders are from left, $17.99 and 14.99 --not sure why one was more than the other two -- should've looked at the prices before I got home with them!!
These are two items I got at last year, that were still available this year -- statue was $9.99 but no price on the stocking holder
Small stocking holders and statue -- stocking holders are $12.99 each & the statue is $9.99
All of these ornaments were priced at $2.99 but one of the bagpipe ones which was marked $5.99 -- the clerk only charged me $2.99 for that one also -- but be sure to check the prices before you get to the cash register!! I got all of these items for 1/2 price on the "polyresin" sale last week.

Neighborhood Excitement

Saturday evening I saw an ambulance back into the neighbor's driveway across the street, and another neighbor was standing in my front yard. Of course, I went outside to be snoopy and find out what was going on! The house diagonally across the street was on fire!! The ambulance arrived 15 minutes before the fire trucks did!! It's scary to think that it takes that long for our fire trucks, that are 2 miles away, to arrive!! (911 was called twice!!) The house is under going extensive remodeling, fortunately, the fire was contained to the garage, but the family had just purchased new cherry cabinets for the kitchen and had stored them in the garage -- the cabinets were ruined! Half the neighborhood just stood and watched the fire - no one got a hose or anything - not even the retired fire chief next door! Another scary thought that your neighbors would just stand and watch your house burn down!! Here is a photo of the fire truck that was blocking our driveway, and the house that burned.

First try at uploading video

video

This is a video I took in early July of Rona and Maxwell "frapping". It was one of my first tries at using a video camera, and I forgot that the camera would pick up my voice too! Now that my shoulder and arm are recovering from the rotator cuff surgery, I will be trying out the camera again soon!

Scottie finds at JoAnn Fabrics






Found these new scottie items at the Super JoAnn fabric store at Castleton Square in Indianapolis today. The two styles of pink fleece are $12.99 yard, the blue flannel is $6.99 yard and the two styles of appliques are $2.99 each.

Rona too!



I think Rona is starting to see the advantages of having a 'little brother' - she has someone to play with when it suits her!

Growing Up


Little Maxwell is growing like a weed! He is just over 4 mos old now -- won't be long before he will need his first haircut!
