Camping, Birthdays, and Thrifty Pretty!

I'm back! I didn't fall off the face of the planet, I promise! But I did go and spend a weekend in the boondocks of Arkansas. VERY LITERALLY!
It was about ten minutes on a rock road to the pavement and another fifteen to town. I like the country, but there were so many trees that I felt claustrophobic the first day! Suffice it to say I was glad to get back to my home land of SW Missouri. Other than the remote area, I had a blast!
We knew we were in Arkansas when they couldn't spell  "Corner Cafe"!
A couple my Dad knows let us borrow their lake house and boat dock.
Total blessing from the Lord.
The water was nice and deep, just right for a dive competition.
I won!
Another couple took us out on the lake for the afternoon.
 They took us to a cove that had a rope swing about 15 ft above the water.
But first,
 This rock was super hard to get onto. We had to climb onto it from
20 ft deep water, and there weren't many hand or foot holds despite its appearance! 
But it was worth the effort! The rope swing was a lot of fun!
Except I got rope burned and slammed into the water chest first.
  But the best part of the trip was when we got to ride the three seater tube the rest of the way back to our dock.
SOOO much fun!!
 Dad drove us around on the the jet ski.  Once we figured out the best way to ride it, we had a really good time.
Sissies forever!

When we got back home we gave away the rest of our kittens.
( Tobias Tub) 
  And Smokey!
They now all have good homes! 

We also just celebrated Michael's and Amy's birthdays.
Amy got her ears pierced and had chocolate pudding with extra whipped cream for dessert.
 Amy and I bought Michael " The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring" for his birthday.
He was thrilled!
 But his favorite present was $20 worth of coins.
He got 5 silver dollars, $10 in half dollars, and 
$5 in pennies! He loved it!!
That's what's been going on. 
Here's another Thrifty Pretty for you! 

  I had about ten minutes to get ready, so I threw this together.

Earrings : Free
Blouse: $.50
Tank: $.50
Skirt ( made by me): $2
Boots: $1

God Bless Y'all!
