Nerf wars, a prize, and a rescue

Hello!~ I hope everyone is well and enjoying some nice weather! I hope all in Texas are safe!

Last weekend, my oldest grandson turned 8 - wow! Where have the years gone? But here are a couple pictures from the party last Sunday. Everyone brought Nerf guns and Jack had quite a few himself, so we were all running around outside like crazy people shooting each other! The yard looked like the Easter Bunny had a problem, LOL! And all of the kids had a blast, the little ones too!! Sadly, some of the pictures didn't "take" - I don't know what happened to them!

The birthday boy

his dad.....

and this is Uncle Sean having a shootout!

In this next pic, I'm related to all but one person.....

I didn't have the heart to tell him this was a family picture. Guess I just gained a new grandson, LOL!

The Counted Wishes Festival was a couple of weeks ago and I won a prize! It was from Sweetbriar Needle Design. I took a picture, but my camera has messed up. I got 2 free charts, "Stashaholic" and French Trees (you can see on their website) and a package came in the mail a few days later with a bead needle, a thread pick, a bobbin jig, and a beautiful silver "T" charm with a rhinestone! I love it all! Thanks SO much Sweetbriar!!!

Also just a week ago, my son found this dog running around out by his work, near a busy interstate. The poor baby! The vet thinks he is an American Bulldog mix, but he's really sweet! He is severely malnourished and has lost a lot of fur. His skin that was showing through was red and hot to the touch. My son and his wife are keeping him and they named him Rocky. He is doing much better while getting antibiotics and a steroid from the vet and a MUCH needed bath! He needs to gain some weight, but other than that, he checked out wonderful at the vet. No heartworm or anything!

I had other pictures of him, but they must have gone off with the other pictures I can't find. I will post more pictures of Rocky later as he improves. And, he is getting along GREAT with their little dog Lily and with my grandson. Wonderful!

Well, that's it for now. I'll be back in a few days with a new start and hopefully, I'll have my giveaway ready to go!

Eskie smiles,

Hey Terri,
It looks like your family had a fun time with the shoot out.
I especially love the family photo and I must admit I was ROFL.
That was such a nice thing of your son and wife to keep Rocky.
TFS and I hope you have a wonderful Easter.

If you are leasing a car you would like to look at all the terms and conditions
properly before signing the lease. Companies are trying out Fiat
leasing over the regular options of buying. You can lease the ideal van for you thanks to the diversity in the market.

Mucous membranes, skin, pharynx or esophagus, gastrointestinal tract, urinary bladder or genitals are the most common areas of infection.
They are cures for bacterial infections and many people do
not realize that they are using drugs with this side effect.
Once you perceive your Candida infection condition, as a disease that needs to be fixed from the root and not just put patches on, the more
serious and devoted you become as to what measures you should take to handle it.

It is important that earwax be removed before the
wax and the accumulation of dirt harden and
block the ear canal, since this is one of the most common causes of tinnitus.

Hearing damaged by noise being the biggest cause of tinnitus in
the 8% of the population who suffer from tinnitus. A regimen of vitamin therapy has been found to give some who suffer from ringing of the ears relief.
