Valentine's Day 2013

Happy Valentine's Day!!!
What are your plans for the day?
Get to Wal-Mart by 11:00 to pick up FIVE cookie cakes, yes one for each table in my daughter's classroom. Those Kindergartners are going to have so much fun decorating a cookie cake with icing and sprinkles. Then at 11:30 I am meeting a new girlfriend for lunch. So excited to finally be meeting some of my daughter's friends parents. Then at 2:30 the big V-Day party at school. The Homeroom Mother job is so much fun! I love it. Of course, I will have the "Bundle of Blue" with me. "Blue" is so much fun and such a good baby. Believe me though, I really am glad that my two kids are big enough to walk around, feed themselves, and partially wipe themselves now. I don't have quite the mommy muscles that I used too. This will only be our second outing together. I kind of like staying at home and not spending money. So does my husband. 

And what exactly did I do that was crafty this Valentine's Day?

This of course was Pinterest inspired. The templates included lips and moustaches, but since we are soooo girly we just went with pink and red lips. It also included labels that you could personalize and print off on stickers, but we just used a glue stick.

Pretty cute, huh?

I think the thing that got me the most while making these is seeing her growing up. The time and care she takes with each project as she gets older. Sigh.
Oh, and the teacher's Valentine gift. So much fun. I actually put together one for my MIL's birthday also.
Have you seen these plates at Dollar General? Five Bucks.
Just made some cake balls and decorated them and hello, what a fun gift that keeps giving!
Now on to what I hope to get...
Peace and lots of LOVE. That's it. 
Have a wonderful ♥ day everyone!

Welcome Home Soldier

I think it is so important to instill a sense of loyalty, respect and of course love to our soldiers in my children. 
I want them to understand what these men and women do for our country and the sacrifices made not only by them, but their families as well. After a 9 month deployment, our family is now officially all stateside. The kid's cousin Ashley, Jason's niece, married last March and her husband Anthony left for Afghanistan in April. He arrived back at Fort Riley, Kansas last night in what I have been told was the most amazing ceremony ever. We made and sent a few small signs to let him know how excited we were that he was home and how thankful we are for his continued service.

Welcome Home Hero!!!

How do you do to instill a sense of loyalty and respect in your children for our armed forces?

100th Day of Kindergarten Fun

Today is my baby girl's 100th day of Kindergarten.
I couldn't post her pictures without first pulling out the scrapbook and taking a trip down memory lane to just six short years ago when my son was also celebrating his 100th day at the same school. 
 Remember scrapbooks? 
Hard to believe six years have gone by. Time is so precious. 
One way or another, I will get images scanned into this blog of mine.
Note: I did manage to repair the scrapbook page and keep his memories archived in it forever.

He brought home a hat that we had to decorate. Being that Kaybrie was just 8 days old, Jason and Braden put the hat together. Quite an imagination. Oklahoma was turning 100 years old in 2007. 100 stars for Liberty Stars, a $100 bill, and 4 quarters!

Kaybrie had to dress up like a 100 year old lady. This proved to be a little tough. We don't know any "old" ladies to borrow anything from. We hit the local Goodwill store. 

Skirt + Brown Sweater + Had to have matching purse = $15

Baby powder for gray hair= necessity at our house.
Pearls= must have accessory.
Makeup=must have cosmetic.
Suntan knee hi's= oh geez, couldn't believe I still had those. I decided they were over 12 years old!!! That's what happens when a former bank manger/officer is such a hoarder. Their not even sandal toed knee hi's!!!

I love the 100 days of school activities. Did your children celebrate? Did you post? .
If so leave me a link or picture in the comments and I'll come visit!
