Girls night out?

Hey local ladies. Deborah and I are wanting a girls night out. We are planning this Friday night. Any one want to join us? We are wanting to go out to dinner some where down town but I am not sure where yet. I would think we would meet at the restaurant at about 7:00 or so. Any how let us know. Any suggestions of where to go too?

Just a minute....

Man I have not clue how people do it. I have been on the go for the entire last week. I did thank goodness get a day at home yesterday to just do nothing. well sort of. I have not had the time to even really tidy or well who am I kidding, clean my house. So I asked the kids to help me get the house clean. they did sort of help but it did get most of the way done. I need to finish my kitchen but not a big deal. I am just so tired form running every where do everything. I do not know how I will keep it all up but I will some how manage. I bring it all on myself. But man I have just not had time for anything. Well I just needed to vent a little frustration of how my life is. Gotta love not having your husband at home when life is always going.

So for the last week and a half Bethannie has had to be at school 30 minutes early so they could have drama practice. The 2ND grade was putting on a play " How does your garden grow". It was a really cute play and Bethannie had a ton of fun doing it.

Here Bethannie is with 2 of her friends from school that were also in the play.

Here is a picture of almost all the kids. It was so cute.

Bethannie was a lawn ornament. She was a cute one at that. The pic was not so great but it was the best I got of the girls.
Here is the last song the kids sang. Just thought I would share the joy.

No more diapers

So I just have to post about how happy I am with Mackenzie. She is finally potty trained. We are still putting on a diaper at night just to be safe because she is not so great at night while she is sleeping but no more diapers during the day. She started last Sunday and really has been doing a good job. She had a few accidents while learning and she is working hard to earn her reward. I am just so happy and proud of her. Any how Just thought I would share that with every one.

Crafting moments

So the last three days or so I can say I have done a whole lot of nothing but crafting. I tried my hand at sewing a skirt for Bethannie. She has not modeled it long enough for me to snap a picture of it but I will. I went to a birthday breakfast this morning and every one was saying how they love hair bows but can not make them. Well several people said they wanted some so those who asked here is what I made today. You have to let me know what you want. I had a lot of fun making them because well I am still trying to learn how and so I thought they turned out really well.

My other project was this skirt for both the girls.
Thanks Charlotte for the idea. I have been wanting to make them for a long time. So I finally got around to it.

Here is a close up of it.

And I made a matching hair bow for both the girls to wear with it.

Any how well I just thought I would post some pics because I had been telling people who do not live near by what I was trying to do. Easier to explain with pics.

Two weeks down

Well it is hard to believe that 2 weeks have already passed since James left. I can not believe in some ways how slow it feels like time is going but I know it will be over before I know it. Especially because I am such a crazy mom. Well the past 2 weeks have been a blure for me because well I have has sick kids, a ton of girl scout cookies to get rid of, literally, and sign ups for kids. James has been asking to play T-ball since he was like 3. So he is finally old enough and there are a few people from church who all have boys the same age as James and we all had talked about signing them up together. i do feel sorry for the coach because these boys love to play together and I bet it will be a handful but they are going to have so much fun. Well Bethannie said she wanted to play too and so it was a lot cheaper to sign up the next child so I went ahead and signed her up too. The thing is she has never played and she is going to coach pitch so we shall see. The same thing I hope with her team is she will be on the team with a bunch of the boys from her church class. She loves the idea of playing though so I am glad she is going to.

Mackenzie woke up last Friday throwing up. She was sick till Tuesday. Let me tell you no fun. I am not good with knowing what to do with sick kids. James always tells me what to do. But we survived. James got it a little bit too so he stayed home from school on Monday. What a day that was because we saw a whole inch of snow fall and we were on a 2 hour delay, 20 + accidents on the highways, and LOTs of schools through out the area with no school at all. Oh well.

As far as girl scout cookies well our little troop is about to have their last booth sale on Saturday. I am hoping to get rid of everything we have left. I will be great to not see another cookie box for a long time after this. I have had CASES in my living room for almost a month now.

Well I got a phone call from James last night and I was so excited to hear from him. He is doing good and is about to pull into France. So jealous. One day I will go there too. Any how well that is our weeks summed up.
