Making handcrafted items is a dying art, but they are so fun to make and get! So, here's a little game to encourage the handcrafting to live and thrive. The first 5 people to leave a comment on this post, will receive, at some point during the year, a super-duper handmade gift from me! What it will be and when it will arrive is a total surprise. The catch is that you must participate as well :) So before you leave your comment here, write up (or copy and paste) a pay it forward post on your blog to keep the fun going. Then, come back, let me know you are going to play, and anticipate the arrival of your super-duper handmade gift! Remember that only the FIRST FIVE comments will receive a gift from me, so be quick!
This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
1. I make no guarantee that you will like what I make. But, I will try my best to make sure that you do :)
2. It will be done this year (hopefully sooner than later)
3. You will have no clue what or when it will be.Please make sure to leave your e-mail address too so I can get a hold of you.
We then took the kids to the grocery store to have $4.00 dinner night. My brother and his family started this, and we have done it a couple times too...not very often though!!!.....each family member gets four dollars to buy what they want for dinner...or in our case "our family movie night"meal...can I just say... we spent over an hour in that store!! Too funny watching the kids figure out the perfect dinner!note...this is fun...not necessarily healthy!!:-)
Hunter Dan...popcorn chicken(from the deli), bag of pork rinds(gross)
Me...(sorry folks no diet tonight)...popcorn chicken, fuze peach/mango drink, almond poppyseed piece of cake.
Bug...2 Jones sodas(cream soda), lunchable, flaming hot cheetos, ice cream bars
Lexlee...lunchable, countrytime strawberry lemonade, 2 kiwis, sweet tarts, ice cream bar
Jibbity...popcorn chicken, bug juice, smarties sucker, 2 strawberry juice pops
Ashie...she ate food from home
We then had a picnic in my bedroom, and watched our movies. Where the Red Fern Grows....not the original, but so cute. I cried and cried, yes I am a baby!!!! I didn't cry for the dogs dying, but for how heart-broken "Billy" was.(ya just look at things differently when you are a mom) Freaky Friday...funny and the kids loved watching all the "oldness" from this one. They laughed really hard!
It was a FUN day...

I did mine in four colors, red, yellow, green, and black. I love how they turned out...Hunter Dan says they look like clown outfits...that's o.k., clowns make me smile, and so do these pots!
It really is sad how something so silly can make you giddy!!:-)
This is my front door with all the daisy and happy(so glad winter is over...we hope) decor. Can't wait to plant some beauties in the pots.
We locked Ashie in the exersaucer...she is too wild to be let loose outside while we are trying to weed! She is too big for this, but it is the only thing she can't escape from!!!!
Have a WONDERFUL Thursday!!!

My fridge seems to pull me in too! Shoot I don't have metal fillings though! BUT...the yummy,and healthy fruit will soon be coming in season, and I love me some cantaloupe!!!! I cut it all up into chunks, and put in the fridge. If I get a craving and it's not cut already...chances are....I won't take the time to cut it...and I'll eat ice cream instead.:-)

Another HUGE dress...loved this one too, and also created by my mom!!
"R" came home from school...(Ricks College)to take me...this was just a little before he left on his mission and this date was very emotional...It was just before graduation(big class of around 68!!!) Just before R was leaving(we'd been together for quite a while by then), and life was just seeming a little more "real", if that makes any sense. Funny how these pictures can take me back to a certain time, bring back all the memories and make me realize how quickly life can change. I loved High School... I really did.. but being a wife and mother is the most amazing experience ever. I am grateful everyday that I have this "job" that I love more than anything!!!Who would have guessed that one year after graduation I would be married, and a year after that I would have my amazing little baby boy!!!

Jibbity wants this one!!!
That's just weird...but kind of cool?
Maybe someday I'll share the story of how on the very same evening Jibbity dropped my nice CTR ring in the toilet while she was wiping her buns...it fell in with the poo. That was fun....I probably won't gross anyone out with that one though....
*Took Ashie into kidscare last night she has Thrush...always something going on!!!
Have a great Sunday...I will be staying home from church.. again! Maybe someday everyone will be healthy!!!:-)
