Where does he come up with this stuff!?!?!

Conversation with my Son this morning after he told me he wanted to stay home from school and wanted me to stay home from work so we could snuggle all day:

Me: But, I have to go to work.

Son: But, why?

Me: Because people are counting on me to be there, plus I like my job.

Son: But, I like spending time with you.

Me: Well, you know what my most favorite job is, don’t you?

Son: What?

Me: Being a Momma to you and your sister. I just wish I was better at it.

Son: You are the best Momma in the whole world.

Me: Thanks, but I wish I could spend more time with you and not get mad so often.

Son: Momma, you are at the top of your game!

How can you not love that kid!!!

Project Life Tuesday: Week Seven

First, I have to mention that I somehow left out a photo from a couple weeks back, and that got me all off track with my Sunday to Saturday schedule.  So, I am going to post the missing photo and then the rest of the photos for this past week and that should get me back to 'normal' whatever that is!
This is the face of someone who doesn't want to leave the fun when it is time to go home!

At least she is smiling in this photo!  Although, all these teeth she is losing, it keeps making me have dreams of losing my teeth.  Her smile is just too cute right now!

Butterfly wing experiment.  I am trying to teach myself how to make them.  Don't you just love the carpet in my craft room?  Can you tell the kids love paint?

Concentration...what a face!

We had him bathed and shaved, I guess he is a little chilly now :)

Cookie Booth!

Project Life Tuesday: Week Five

I have decided I am going to actually print my photos one month at a time.  So I had my January photos printed last week and added them to my Project Life album.  Now I just have to go back to my Project 365 blog and write my journaling cards.  Hopefully I will be done with that task by the time next month rolls around and I have a new set of photos to print. :)

Yet another reason to love Costco...

So, Valentine's Day is coming up, and I wasn't really feeling the whole 'handmade cards' thing we did last year.  I got the idea that I should make a digital valentine and have them printed out.  So, I got to thinking, if I use Costco's 6 in. X 7.5 in. blank template I could make Valentine's for Elizabeth to take to school, and have some leftover to send out to some family members.  I made one for each of the kids, with their photos and then I will cut them in half for the ones Elizabeth has to take to school, and I will leave them whole for those I am sending in the mail.  $14.99 for 50 cards plus envelopes. Maybe more than I would have spent on the Barbie or My Little Pony Valentine's, but these are way cuter, and we don't have the hassle of signing all of them.  I only wish I had seen this post before I finished mine, they are too cute!!!  Oh well, there is always next year!

Okay family, no peeking at the finished product.  You will get yours in the mail next week!

A friend saw these and asked me to create one for her, she has three kids, but only two in school.  So I broke the 'canvas' into thirds and created two 3 in X 3.75 in valentine's for her two school aged kids to exchange at school.  And one 6 in X 3.75 in 'Family' valentine to send out to relatives.  Since they are not mine, I blurred out the faces and blacked out the names, but you can get the idea.

I know it looks really busy when it is all on one page, but it is meant to be cut apart.
