what a miracle!!! I have an actual POTD!!! I have been posting a couple of pictures after the day is looooong gone :( I sit here cutting with both my cricuts and i figured I needed to document why I do the crazy things I do,lol. Nicholas' teacher needed paper cut to make little books with laminate samples. Its arts and dessert night on thursday and I'm in charge of that craft. I'm doing things tonight I definitely want to remember!! first, my potd on the actual day, putting both my cricuts to use AND finally, cutting out the needed craft items way before the event. ok, maybe not WAY before, but I've known about this since beginning of Feb. and I'm famous for waiting until the night before and not finishing until right before the event,ugh!!!!
I ran by family dollar last night and I sure left there one happy shopper :).
the store is maybe 3 minutes from my house and for some reason I never ever think about stopping. well, a friend of mine showed me clothes she bought and the great prices she paid. of course i can't pass up a good deal so off I went. wow, I bought 10 complete outfits for 30 bucks!!!! joey made out the best and was very happy with his new clothes :) they ranged in price from $2-$3.... can you believe that???!!!!! my family thought i was ridiculous for taking pictures of the clothes but I was just too proud of myself not to..... ;)
I hope you all are doing well and having a wonderful start to your week. now i'm off to sneak in some time to visit your blogs :)
I was suppose to be working on other projects BUT my tree was sitting there with "old" valentine decorations. of course that took priority over everything else ;) I know my priorities at times can be a little wacky!!!! thank you again Bridget for the idea :) my kids and the kids i babysit are loving it.

Thanks to Bridget L. for the idea of keeping my christmas tree out year round. After reading her blog and seeing her pretty valentine tree I dug out my tree and decorated :) thought i would post a picture of it before I start decorating for st.pattys day. I love my pink tree and always hate putting it away after christmas but now it will stay in my craft room until...........
It was early release day for the kids so I figured we would burn all that extra energy playing outside. My nephew joined us at the park and I couldn't figure out who had more fun. He said they wore him out and he doesnt know how I can take all those kids to the park without help ;) My usual answer to something like that- "when you have five kids does it really matter how many extras you add?" lol.
Besides, I only had four extra at the time :).... I'm so happy spring is around the corner because this year it couldnt come fast enough.

I love valentines day and probably not for the reasons people think :) I love all the cute pink stuff ;)..... every year we have a valentine lunch and I try to stick with heart shaped food or red food.. i know i can be ridiculous. My kids seem to enjoy it or maybe they just enjoy receiving their special valentine. the giant cookie cake was delish!!! joey for some reason decided it was better to smash it on his face and sunnie had to copy. just a couple extra pictures of sunnie to show she was in the holiday spirit :) I hope you all had a wonderful day with your valentine.
It seems like for every holiday the kids class parties are at the same time and that leaves me running like a crazy lady. By the time I hit joeys class all is well and I can relax a bit. Joey has always been a hard one to handle. ugh, i remember when he was a baby and he would cry non stop and never ever sleep longer then 20 minutes at a time. Nobody ever believes my joey stories because he is so darn cute and innocent looking. The thing i always say, "he's darn lucky he's so cute!!!" ;)
After seeing these on the cricut mb I knew I had to make a few. sock cupcakes??? who woulda thunk it? lol.
