School Dayz are Over...Again!

Once again I am amazed that another school year has come to an end. Hannah finished preschool and will now be entering kindergarten (can that be possible?) and Riley is going to be in 5th grade! Unbelievable. With the end of the school year come the end of the school year gifts. I made the teachers some cards and flowers. I have done this before for other teachers and they really appreciate these hand made goodies! Well, it's off to a squirt gun fight!!!

Finally, last summer's CHA Album!!

Sicky Wicky

Don't you just hate it when kids get sick? Let's just give you the run down in case you have forgotten about what it is like to have a sick kid:

Up and out of bed in the middle of the night at least 5 times...whining, crying (and that is just mom!), thirsty, hot, cold, have to pee, etc. etc. etc.

Today the name of the game is: cough, sniff, cough, sniff, ooooh ick. I can't stand it! I just want to reach up in there and snag all of those boogers for him. He can't breathe. He hasn't figured out how to blow his nose. Yuck. When I hear him cough, I just want to gag for him. And the streams of goo dripping out of his nose. Ok, gross.

So, the good thing here is that he is QUIET. This is a great feat for Nicholas who's decibles are usually heard in the next county. He has taken a nap today too which is highly unusual at home.

So now we wait to hear from the doctor, to see if he has strep or some other mean ole' bug. Meanwhile, we will continue to take our antibiotics, sniff, cough, wipe his little nose, and maybe....just maybe...mommy won't get sick too!!!

Happy Mother's Day

I want to wish all mothers out there a very special Mother's Day. I know at times we all feel unappreciated, so I want to say I LOVE YOU! I love that you take care of your children, young and old, no matter what the problems. I love that you give all of your children, young and old, hugs and kisses. I love that you are always there to guide, to love, to cherish and to facilitate those memories! Happy Mother's Day!!!

I had to get something made for my mother. She is definitely very special to me. I made this gift bag using my Cricut Expression and the Cricut Design Studio tonight to hold my mom's gift. I tried out some new Glimmer Mist on the flower. I used an Autumn Leaves stamp and watercolored the image. Enjoy!
