HEY...for anyone who MIGHT actually be reading this.......well, I never though I would say this. But, Cayden has SCARLET FEVER!!! Ominous sounding, huh? And sort of rare to get these days. The doctor told me that he probaby started out with strep, then it turned into Scarlet fever. He had this sand papery red rash over him. EW! Poor little dude. He was miserable for a few days. So, crossing my fingers that no one else in the house gets it.

HEY, and for all of you wanting some free moola to spend at Happy Scrappin', enter their card of the month & Lay-out of the month contests!! You can only enter once a month/per contest & this month's almost over!!!! So you better get to crackin!!! Good luck to all who enter this month!


Sorry about your little guy! Hope he gets feeling better soon.

Happy Birthday to my dear sweetie. My dearest Brinley.

I had no clue what having a daughter would mean to me. You are completely amazing. Stubborn & independence emerging...which has completely numbed me with shock sometimes. You AMAZE me. The whole package. The girlish looks & diva-seeking ways. Your flare for the dramatic. Where did you get all this? Your persistence is always there. You have to try to do things yourself. And even if you fail, you keep trying. We're working on getting you to ask for help.

And then, there's all your quirks. I love that you pronounce things wrong sometimes. You still say nackman instead of napkin, even though I've corrected you lots of times. These days, I've tried to cut back on my corrections for the small, cute things you do. Because they are so innocent. Today, you opened a birthday card & had a 10 dollar bill in it. You called it "order." You've made that association between ordering from a drive-through or restaurant that you have to pay for it in the end. So funny and innocent. Tonight, whenever the birthday song was sung to you in the restaurant, your brother was eyeing your cake like a hawk. You spooned him out some first before taking a bite of it yourself. So thoughtful and kind. Maybe all the schpeels about sharing are paying off. You woke up in a great mood at the start of today, like you always do whenever you get plenty of rest. That's one of the many things that I just LOVE about you. I love your sassy flair that you bring with you when you reach your level of comfort around someone. I love your silly laugh. I love your need to keep things clean. You're constantly wiping off the table or dusting around the house or me. I love your need to take care of others. It's the little mommy in you. Someday you're gonna make a great wife and mommy. I love our night time routine of songs & snuggles & nose-rubs. I love the fact that you learn through song. You can remember so many songs or pick up any song you want to set your mind to. And I adore the songs you make up yourself as you go about your day. I love that you are finding 'you.' And for the most part, you're doing it all by yourself. And I love getting to know you better day by day & sharing in all of this self-searching. I love you for you. Even the part of you that tosses fits of stubborness my way lately. I love it all. We'll get through this year if we're blessed with it. And undoubtedly it will be another year filled with dress-up and tears and princesses and frills and more of your signature songs. And just those moments of you, my dearest Brinley. Here's to some of the most joyous & memorable three years of our lives.


Your photos and your daughter are beautiful!

Another Tuesday challenge a day LATE!!! I'll see if I can post before my internet cuts out on me!

This fine Thursday brings you challenge to tell me about WhAT's hiding in your fridge? I'm talking about the good, the bad, & the ugly.

-Sippy cup filled with something that I don't know how long it's been in there. I'm afraid to check it out though!
-Last night's leftover meatloaf & mashed potatoes
-Cottage cheese, one of the kiddos faves
-REAL butter
-NO fresh veggies right now
-NO fresh fruit either unless fruit cocktail from a can counts
-2 percent milk
-tortilla shells
-a gallon jar of dill pickles almost empty (cuz they're my fave)
-11 eggs
-And last but not least, some concoction that my husband whipped up from left-over spaghetti. He likes baked spaghetti, which is what he attempted. However, he put bbq sauce in it. I could barely eat it. Shhhhhh! Don't tell him!!!


LOL!! Girl that BBQ sauce dinner um dont worry I wont tell him!! EEK!!!

Fun challenge I will work on this later today!!!

My Tuesday blog challenge is short & sweet!!!

Share a SUMMER goal that you never got around to accomplishing.

For me? Cleaning out & organizing my closet. I cleaned it out half-way, got depressed that I couldn't fit into most of my clothes, & haven't been back since to finish the job.

FALL goal? Lose some weight.

Check out Joni's post here.


Cleaning... yuck!
I never seem to get around to that either! LOL!
