Douglas Lamond Chamberlain

My incredible Father in law Doug passed away on September 29, 2011. We are so saddened that he is gone and left this life. He was such an amazing man and that has left behind a legacy that is so great.
He has had a long battle with cancer and his body just became to weak. He never gave up on his fight and even til the very end he showed his family that he is a fighter. He continued to teach all of us to love this life up until his final seconds on this earth.
Clint and Ruby and I Were lucky enough to fly home and be with him and Eve and the rest of the family about a week and a half ago. We spent day and night with him and have enjoyed all of the time that we were blessed with.
Doug was the rock of The Chamberlain family. He loved having all of his family gathered together and seeing all the grandchildren play. He was so loving that these family gatherings often included non family member that Doug loved and wanted to feel apart of the family.
Doug loved and fought and I will never forget all the he taught and did for us. We are so sad that Ruby will not grow up knowing her amazing grandfather, but we will teach her about this loving man that was taken from us far too soon.
We love you Doug

He leaves behind a wonderful family that I am lucky to be a part of .
We will continue to love and strengthen one another and remember all the lessons and principles that you taught us all.

Beachin it up

We spent the weekend at the beach with our good friends The Welch's.
It was a blast!!!!!!
We had perfect weather
Lots of laughs
Tons of Sea Shell collecting
Even some Crab catching.....followed by some crab eating.
Yep Michael and Clint caught 18 crabs and they cooked em up and ate em.
We made such great memories. Especially Ruby, who just adores their kids.
She wants to copy Paige on everything and Paige is such a good sport about it. We are so Grateful that we have been able to make such wonderful friends.

Here is the crab catching, cooking and eating. Yummy

I couldn't believe Ruby wanted to hold all of these Sea creatures.
She has been having some really fun experiences and I love that she is growing and learning

Relaxing in The Ocean.
We absolutely love The Gulf beaches.
So warm and Beautiful

This was our stow away little friend.
Clint and Michael went out snorkeling to get some big shells and Sanddollars.
It just so happened that while they were searching they got stung by jellyfish.
Clint found this really cool shell that he was so excited about. They put it in the mesh bag that they carry and when they got back to the beach and opened the bag this little guy came out.
Talk about surprised.
That night when Ruby said her prayers she said
" thank you that my Daddy could be safe, but really he wasn't that safe cause he got stung by jellyfish..... and thank you that we got to see the octopus even though it was freaky, but it was awesome too"
I really almost started laughing. it was so cute.

I love adding glitter to anything I can, for any occasion!!!!
It adds so much fun to something that was otherwise plain. So if you have any glitter grab it and start glitterifying anything you see!!!
My favorite thing to add glitter to is Halloween decorations
and luckily that is just around the corner.
So run out and grab something that you can add glitter to.

I sorta went crazy with the glitter on the graveyard bones. And I couldn't stop. It really is an addiction.
There are probably a ton of ways to glitterize something ( I'm trying to see how many different ways I can butcher the word glitter)
But here is what I do.....
What you'll need
a good spray can of glue
Glitter (I like using the really fine stuff)
Lrg Ziploc bag

Put the glitter in the ziploc bag
Spray the item you want glittered with the glue
Put the item in the ziploc bag and shake it around getting the glitter in all the little crevices.
Take the item out and let it dry.

and there you have....some serious glitterfied bones baby

Now this method is easy but kinda messy.
So I was extremely giddy when I read this over at Vintage Revivals
I mean how genius is that. A spray can of glitter.
Now it will just take one easy step. Oh the possibilities.
I have a feeling I am going to go crazy with the glitter. And I can't wait.
The only problem is going to be finding it in lower Alabama. Good luck to me!!!!

So go out and try it!!!!!!!
