we celebrated!

great grandma was there. so happy she lives so close. 

she got a kick out of the dsi

so grateful
so happy

then, this morning, when i was cleaning up the crazy, messy, not sure what to call it room, 
i put these aside. 
and as i was cleaning up, out of the corner of my eye,
i saw the pile of shoes
(that i had just put aside)
i starting to tear up.
like i am right now.
really, these are too small, really?
she says, mama-these are to tight. 
you're sweet little foot has grown again
in a blink of an eye.

maybe its the country music playing in the background that has me emotional.
ya think?

ps. mama loves shoes, so i don't mind buying her a few more

A Sneak Peek At My Trash to Treasure

Dropped the kids off at school. 
Turned the corner and found what I have been looking for. 
I have seen them at flea markets, some to big, some to small, 
some just to expensive. 
So you can imagine how delighted I was when I stumbled
on to "just what I have been looking for" 
for FREE!!!

Here is a sneak peek. 
Not nearly touched yet, just in its spot. 
Not sure what color to paint her. 
For now she'll stay the way she is. 

Oh how I love her.

Making a list

I'm not a list girl. 
As I have stated before. 
But there are some days
where making a list and posting it outside for the
world to see would be fun. 
The list would look something like this:

Made kids breakfast
Made sure:
 all homework was in back pack
 lunches were made and in back pack
jacket in back pack, just in case

Kids dressed - check
Brushed teeth - check
Got everything in the car - made sure nothing was forgotten
Dropped off kids
Stopped by post office (sometimes target/grocery store)
Put clean dishes away
Did a little Laundry
Made Beds
Took shower
Packed a snack for pick up
Picked up kids
Dropped of at activity (dance/softball/violin)
Ran a few errands on the way home
Went through back packs
Dinner together
Read before bed
Say prayers 
Kiss Goodnight
Help sooth, cuddle anyone in the middle of the night who needs it.

Sound familiar. 
I am sure I missed a few (a lot)

Thats what we do. 
Take care. 
Make sure. 
And we do a good job at it. 

So, to all those HaRd WoRkInG MoMs
No Matter If You Stay Home, Work from Home, Work out of The Home
Here is Something for You.

Ok Friend, here's a sneak peak


That's what this family is. 

i love this one

Hope you like. 

Date Night

The girls were getting ready to go on a date with their Daddy.
When they were getting ready they heard a 
knock on the door. 
(I thought, who in the heck is that)
But to all of our surpise,
There he was, their Daddy.
With 2 roses cut from our garden.
Ready to take his girls out on a date. 
They were so excited. 

Yes. Good times. Wonderful Memories. Great Daddy.

**He wanted to share what they did**
Italian Dinner (nothing fancy)
Walked around
Visited an old time candy store (one had a gift certificate)
Then ended the night with a walk to a local drugstore for ice cream.
They loved every minute of it.

A List

For the first time I think I'll make a list.
I'm not a list maker.
Never have been. 
But today, I feel the need. 
I hope to not wonder to a store or a place in my home and think...
why am i here?

Fun things going on:

Invitations need to be created 
this kid is having a birthday soon
Time to CeLeBrAtE

Center Pieces, working on them this weekend

not a great picture but in real life they look pretty cool

Wrap up Auction donations
Grocery Shopping
Violin Practice 
Softball Practice

This is high up on my list.

Did you ever see this article in the magazine Real Simple?
As much as I hope to preserve my photos in scrapbooked albums, my goal is to get my photos in a safe place off my computer SOON.
This picture does not do this women justice. She had drawers full of them. 
So, yes, this on my list...high on my list!

What's on your list?
