Derby Racing

It is that season once again...
Pine Wood Derby Racing for Royal Ambassadors or Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts.  I have to share a few shots of our weekend for Seasonal Sunday. :)
saw this at Borders and got it for my Derby Dudes...
they already had this out...

that tiny flat piece of wood in the top left corner is the car for this years race in works...

I loved being there!!  I got to go around and talk to all the guys and gals about their cars and how they designed and created their masterpieces.  This is my fav Royal Ambassador.

they were all so cute judging each other's works and talking about their own.  We had as many GAs as RAs and they rocked the competion.
That car in her lil hands is a slice of pizza and it was smokin' hot. lol

Look how sweet my guy is...he dressed to match his car.  His Momma went looking at 3 different stores to get him the flourescent orange paint color he wanted this year.  The whole family was looking at google images to help with the design.  He chose the Fleur De Lis and blue flame design.  I guess the other kids thought it was cool because not only did he win fasted car...he got best in show for boys his age.

Peace, Love & pretzels

I haven't baked much lately except I did make my boys some blueberry muffins with banana mixed in for good measure...we gobbled them right up. :D  and a few tins of biscuits and cinnamon rolls.
Here is what I did for neighbors for Happy New Year hand-outs:

I still had a few rods to use up and had gotten Hubby this tub from World Market for work.  He really wants the bigger, fatter ones but I'm not sure they are making them anymore??

Yes, I had another dunking session because I got way too many bags of melting chocolate on sale at JoAnn's fabric right before Christmas.  I underestimated the need for some things and over-estimated the chocolate.
These rods make me think of Happy New Year fire-works.  I used up my whole supply of sprinkles.  It will be fun looking for some for Valentines & Spring varieties.
Yes, I even used up our turtle sprinkle jar.
used up all my food safe cello bags too.  Ya'll remember I gotta bless our new neighbors and all our old neighbors who are putting up with our "dust" as we prep for the for Sale sign in our yard.
I'm looking forward to 2011. 
No matter what comes, happens, falls...we are fix'n our eyes on Jesus...the Author and finisher of our faith here at Beagle Run Way!! 

I'm thankful for blogging!!  I'm thankful for our home, job, children, God's grace & mercy upon my household, for the talent and gifting to prepare our previous home for sale, great neighbors there and new neighbors here.

I'm tagging in to Thankful Thursday.

British Invasion

1 of the 1st things I noticed when I started blogging was the Keep Calm & Carry on posters on some side bars.  I had never known about them or the backstory.  Love at 1st sight because I need to think like this everyday & it reminds me of the Narnia story I've read to the boys and watched the movies with them.  Here are a few of my fav new finds with twists:

this is a gorgeous cyan blue poster that I found as an image while googling recently & printed out.  Credit for this freebie goes here.  I found a purple 1 that I love too, here.   Purple makes me think of royalty & my amethyst birthstone.  Had to print this 1 too.
so, when I saw this...needed it for my kitchie pantry:

I had to copy this 1 in case I think of a great slogan to put on it:

Meme's I'm joining in:
