Don't you love good news!!!

I was at church and a good friend came up to me and asked me if I would make her invitations I looked at her my Eyes were misty I realised I was holding my breath just watering to hear what she was going to say "why Jenifer my weeding invitations". I just wanted to cry I was so happy for her!!! My hart was just so full at that moment. It is amazing how much joy you can feel for some one else.



I thought this was cute kinda Random and has nothing to do with my post. I just love the thought you scratch my back I will scratch yours.

So Glad the white stuff has melted.. It was hard to see it all when the weather had been so nice.

Aprons Aprons Aprons....


Well Mrs Karen Here is your apron Hope you like it!!!!
This what Dale thought of the Apron.. LOL Shelly took the pic so i thought I would added it and show you all what a goofball Dale can be.



I have been busy sewing up a Storm this week end I cut out 4 Aprons and have only completed one..
Thats ok cutting them out takes the longest amount of time for me . Once they are cut out I can sew them in no time flat. I am in 3 apron swaps that are all due around and on June first so I thought I would get them out of the way. Plus May 12th is Apron appreciation day.. Thats when you where your apron out all day long so i thought I would make a special one for that.. Plus mothers day is coming up and you guessed it My Mothers are getting aprons and some of my suedo moms too. I just love aprons.. LOL

Visit to the ER

Here is a funny short video as I was taking it an Er tech came in you can hear him knocking.
video

Friday night Dale started to feel sick which did not surprise me since our whole family has had the flu and chest colds. He started getting worse today with a high fever and he was very dehydrated so I drove the 40 Min's to the base and took him to the ER. They immediately gave him an IV took a chest X ray. The X ray showed sings of pneumonia so they gave him an inhaler and antibiotics and some more time off of work..


We are home and he is resting and I am getting ready to take a bubble bath..

I could not believe how much I laughed.. WE then went shopping At Joann's I got some fun Lace and trims for scrap booking we then went to old Navy I did not find any thing cute for me I wasent digging the new styles... But I found these cute Jammie's for Ben... The best part is the price on the tag was 4.99 which I thought was a good deal then we got up yo pay for them and they rung up to a whopping 1.99 plus 20% off which made the final cost 1.60... I was a very happy girl..

Scary Hands..






I made this LO of Ben one day he was hiding behind the couch and he had these gloves on and I asked why he had them on and he said because I have scary hands. I was so sadden by what he said,. I love Ben's hands they are so chubby and cute. I asked him why they were scary he said" because the have owies all over them."

It is snowy again here I am about as tired of all the snow as I cane be.. So what is the weather like in your neck of the woods?

Happy Birthday Mylissa

Today is Mylissas 14th birthday. I can hardly believe she is that old..

Best friends

I did this LO for the OWL challenge The word Was Best.. I chose to do the LO of Berni Jo and I . We have been BFF for about 7 years since Madeline was a baby. We have gone threw some of our hardest times together. She always knows the right thing to say to me. With out ether of us saying anything we will know there is stress or something wrong in each others life. Thats when we pick up the phone and say whats wrong.. I have always felt like she should have been my earthly sister I know that we new each other and were good friends before we came to earth, but I am satisfied that we found each other on this big earth.

Dyslexia


I made this LO for Creative art Therapy The topic was a child hood memories.

Well the fist thing that popped my head was the struggles of Being dyslexic in a time that it really wasn't recognised. I was always told that I was dumb and lazy I was also told I never tried hard enough. The education part of school sucked for me. I had a great second grade teacher that told me Jenny your smart in fact your very smart we just need to find away to make all your knowledge come out in a way that works for you. That was all I need to hear That I wasn't dumb I was unique in the way my mind works.
