Making Lotion and Bath Salts

These were so easy to make.

I got the lotion base at Pine Meadows: http://www.pinemeadows.net/ and added my own essential oil blends.

For the bath salts I mixed:

1 Cup Epsom Salt
1 Cup Pacific Sea Salt (also got at http://www.pinemeadows.net/)
1 tablespoon of scent or 7 drops of essential oils

So much fun to make and everyone loved them.

Be Careful Who You Road Rage -- Hilarious!!!!

So Nate is driving to work one day. The light turns yellow and Nate slows and stops.
I don't know if the guy in the truck behind him wanted run the red light or just be first in line for the next green light, but either way, he was mad.

He yells and beats on his steering wheel then jumps out of his car and starts making tough guy strides toward the driver's side of my husband's car.

My husband looks down, sees that he's ready for work and steps out of the car looking like this:

Yes, my husband is a combat fighter.

 He is hard core military and his black belt is recognized by the Shaolin Temple in China.

For his job he is a Martial Arts Instructor and teaches the military hand to hand combatants.

The road rager scrambled back into his car, locked the doors, and sat very still until the light turned green again.

Hiking Y Mount

In this picture he's saying, "Um, Darlin', why are you taking my picture when I'm all sweaty and getting a drink?"

Me: "So I can submit your modeling photos to Old Spice."

Trip to a Hidden Bookstore

Nate and I took a trip to a bookstore in our enchanted Fairy Tale Land. It was seriously like walking through Diagon Alley from Harry Potter.

Look at the cash register. They really use this as their cash register.
Notice the witch in the background (not Halloween)
The fairy card on the register
The drawer of gems and jeweled trinkets
The bell over the door.

And apparently these books are banned.

Below are the books we got. 
Nate: The Art of War 
Me: The Herb Bible
Of course.

What a sweetheart.

Nate and Kal'el vs. THE MOLE

Yep, we got a mole. He was digging up our backyard like crazy so the boys went out to kill it.

Here is Kal'el "standing guard" ready to wack the mole when it comes crawling out.

  Waiting and Waiting

Waiting, but no mole ever surfaced so Nate started a water fight.
