About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

The Pharoah made us Pancakes!

We got off to a slow start this morning, but things are HOPPING now! I got another BIG frame! $3!!!

What's this?? I do believe that the Pharoah made us pancakes!:)

I got this comforter at TJ Maxx- on clearance.:) I think it looks great with the table cloth that my Nana embroidered for us.

Katie is having a lot of fun working on her 9 patch quilt square. The girls started making one as part of our Prairie Primer/ On the Banks of Plum Creek studies. Hand sewing is not my specialty, in fact all sewing scares me, but it is fun to watch them.

Look at those tiny little fingers.:)

I bought a box of these for me- I mean my girls!:) What is with the sharpener on the back, though? Why do they even bother?

This is another fun thing you might like to do with your cutie pies! I bought this book while we were at the beach...

Oh, and these! Did you know they were called Cootie Catchers? Sweet Heather sent these to my girls. I love how it can tell your future.:)

Back to the art book... It's so fun to see what you can make with your fingerprints! Check out this dragon!

And the birdie and butterfly!

How about the mouse with the balloons and the bunny?? My little one cannot get enough of this book!

Hope you are all having a wonderful Saturday!

You have the greatest ideas! It's refreshing to see the things you do with your children. What an awesome thing to see those little hands sewing.

Wow, you got a great deal on that frame! Amanda is getting more and more beautiful each day (if that's possible!)
I LOVE the comforter and the table cloth...
Katie's quilt looks like it's going to be fabulous!

If you have a Pharoah in your home does that make you the Queen of the Nile? (I'm the Queen of DENIAL!)
Looks like you are having a wonderful weekend!

Ha! I've always wondered why they bother wrapping crayons in paper? I guess it gives the kids something to peel off and leave on the floor.

Hi Lori
I love the picture of your Pharoah making breakfast. Pancakes sound wonderful. I can't wait to see what you have in mind for the frame. $3 was a bargain. Your Nana's tablecloth is beautiful. It looks perfect with the comforter. Katie looks quite the little seamstress. Her quilt is looking great. You ARE wonderful at stitching too. Those napkins you embroidered for me are perfect. I love the art book too. It looks full of such super ideas.
Hope you are having a lovely weekend. Speak to you soon.

I love all of the artsy activities Lori! I never got the sharpener on the crayon box either, tee hee. How nice of the Pharoh to make you all pancakes too, what a sweetie ;-) Can't wait to see your little ones finished quilt, what a fun thing to do. Sewing scares me too, hahahahaha.

I love seeing Katie sew...look at her concentration! The art photos are terrific.
My kids have made 'fortune tellers' for years....I never have heard them called 'cootie catchers' before...too funny!

Elise said...

Great frame and the price...can't be beat!!
Lilly wants to help sew sometimes. Like when I am making yo-yo's. I think its a great thing to know how to do.
Can't wait to see what you do with that frame. Oh, your husband is precious for letting you take that photo AND for cooking pancakes!! Love the quilt, too!!

Amy said...

I can't wait to see your girls' blocks! What great activities you guys have been up to!
