todays post!!!!

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!!!!

shopping trip :)

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 :)

March tree

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.

the tree

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...........

wed 2/17/10

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.

happy valentines day :)

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.

friday 2/12

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.

thursday 2/11

I always have the best of intentions to get everything finished ahead of time. well, as usual it never works out that way and i'm scrambling around at the last minute. the night before their valentine party my boys sit in my craft room and fill out their cards. I had so much to finish that night but i decided to sit back and watch them.

Here i go again.....

thought i would let you all know why I havent been posting. the sickness continued in my house :( I finished with my antibiotics on a sunday by that wednesday i had strep throat AGAIN!!!! that makes 3 times since Jan.1st.... now i'm taking another antibiotic and i'm so afraid to finish it... positive thoughts :) this time it took the dr. until the following wednesday to notify me that my strep test came back positive, ugh!!!!
I do have a few pictures to post but really havent been in the mood... i'm trying to tell myself starting monday I will "start over". last week I received a very sad phone call. A dear friend of mine lost her son tragically :(
My heart is broken for her family and I cant even begin to imagine the pain they all are feeling. So, I have been praying and thinking and praying some more. very sad :(.....
I will keep telling myself this project 365 is something i really really want to do and just maybe that will get me moving again.
I hope all is well with all of you :)

wow!!! it has been a very long 2 weeks......

It seems like we have been in and out of the dr's office and the pharmacy. my husband and I have been sick for what seems like forever but thankfully its on its way out. I have filled so many prescriptions that it would be ok if i didnt walk into target for awhile (jason would be so happy to hear that lol). Now i just have to finish my drops for pink eye and I will be done :) of course, I'm keeping fingers crossed and knocking on wood every chance I get ;).

While my husband was watching the superbowl I was able to work on some valentine crafts. I needed to make mailboxes for Joeys pre-school class and nicholas' teacher a card. I never got around to ordering the sweet treat cups from stampin up so after reading a post on the cricut mb I got an idea. I'm not sure what the lady used as her "sweet treat cup" (I was too tired to click on the post to read the entire thing) but it did give me an idea of what i could use :).
I bought several different candy molds hoping they would work. for the most part I think it turned out ok. Really it doesnt hold a lot of candy but thats ok, its still kinda cute ;)

I guess my brain still isnt working to its fullest :o..... I posted the pictures in the wrong order...

sunday 1/31

wow, i cant believe i haven't posted since wed. of last week. i keep saying life is so busy and crazy right now and i don't have much time for anything but "life". then i think, well, that's ok because if i didn't have a busy crazy life what would my project 365 be about ;)
I've always disliked sundays because that is the end of our weekend and back to routine, rushing and work..... The kids school got 2 new play structures last week so we took them over to play. Nicholas didn't get to play on them at school because the line of kids was ridiculous. We had the entire playground to ourselves so they were able to play as much as they wanted :) I hope everyone is doing well and now i'm off to blog surf and see what i've been missing..

saturday 1/30

nicholas said sunnie looked like a rockstar, i think joey said she looked like a monster,lol. I think she looked adorable :) it doesnt matter how i comb her hair because a few minutes later she always ends up looking like she's been through the dryer.

friday 1/29

what a long week so glad to have friday roll around :).... My husband usually plays with the band both friday and saturday night but he had tonight off. That makes it a little easier around here when i have his help. He got the 2 little kids ready for bed and it wasnt long before we found them asleep on the couch. I guess they must have had a hard long week too :)

thur 1/28

Joey's class had a field trip to see Frank Leto in concert at the national hispanic cultural center. He sings the cutest childrens songs like coconut soap, back seat driver.. if are in need of "new" kids music check him out on myspace :)

the picture is part of the hispanic center and the other is a house.. back when the center was being built they offered the residents so much money to buy their property and well most agreed. as you can see there is one lone house that the owner wasn't gonna give in. She was an elderly lady and refused to sell so she didnt and they built around her. If i'm not mistaken their final offer was a million dollars and she still said no. Well, since then she has passed away and her family took possession of her house and wanted to sell but it was too late. Now there is this little green house right smack dab in the middle of the center :)
