All mushy and fuzzy inside
Yesterday we took the kids to our family doctor for their follow up appiontment...from when Ethan had the ear infection a few weeks ago.
Notice in the photo above how Kaitlyns knees cave in a bit...this has concerned me and we had both kids feet looked at. They are both flat footed and are now to see a pediatrist. Whoo-hoo, what fun! (not really)
Now for a change of subject ( I will do this a few times this post) I got Caught Being Good by CC. I think she is the one who deserves this award more than anyone...she is an amazing wife and mother and plugs through whatever life slings at her. She is real and honest and has a beautiful loving and passionate spirit.
Here are the rules that come with this sticker:
1. Choose 3 people you want to reward for their good bloggy behavior. (I say if you don’t have three that’s ok. Pick one person.)
2. Link them in a post along with the “Caught Being Good” sticker.
3. Let them know they’ve been “Caught Being Good” and encourage them to pay it forward (if they feel like it).
That’s it! Go spread some linky love. You don’t have to be nominated to nominate someone but these writers are my picks:
a)Chatty housewife, becuase she is always consistent and upbeat. Her passion show through in every post and her photography is awesome! She is also a demestic diva and I think we are due for another one of her domestic tips post (wink, wink)
b)Second up is Kami. She is a relativly new blogging friend and one who has crossed over into my real life. She is funny and her posts always make me either smile or laugh. I need this!
c)My old friend Sandy. She is an amazing homemaker and mommy and is expecting her second child. She also works from home, chases around a two year old, cooks fantastic food, looks hot and still keeps it all together. I really don't know how she does it!!!
Now I will get back to my little life. As you all must know by now I looooove me some non-bill mail! Packages make my day, I smile and smile and feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
It is like getting a little love or a hug, it just adds a big bright hue to the day.
This week has been great for this!
On Monday we got a package from Nicole. She was so sweet to send me a tote (she is the queen of totes) and it has a design by one of her talented sister's on it, cute heh?!!
The other thing she included in the package was dish soap, amazing earth friendly dish soap with no SLS!
My hands are no longer bleeding from one load of dishes! This stuff is fantastic and it smells good too! My eczema is under control for the first time in months, I cannot thank you enough Nicole!!
Oops, I am goin to change the subject again....not smooth here today!
First craft of the day was making hand shaped Valentines...for each other.
After that little break the door bell rang and we were delivered a party in a box, Thank you Aunty Kathy!!!
The kids had a blast opening and playing with everything...and they still are, this box will keep us going for weeks!
The second craft of the day came from the party box and ended up being a pretty little necklace for Kaitlyn.
Now for what I have been up to. The kids went down early last night (8 and 9) so I tackled my computer chair. I had Dave haul it out of the trash behind our old appartment down town Edmonton...when we were first married. He didn't want it because it was only adding to the stash of stuff we had crammed in the tiny space.
I had a vision for it though and since we were moving into our first house right away he let me keep it....on the balcony.
It then spent a few years kicking around in the garage at our first house, endured the move with us here and then hung out in the basement.
Last night I finally got to work on it!
Like the new fabric? I have quite a collection of samples like this one. I save them for more projects in my head that haven't happened yet.
It is almost done, still needs a few more coats but I am sooo happy, finally a project that I had in my head years ago is coming to fruition...this is why I have such a hard time purging, I always want to rescue and refurbish everything!
