Here are some old photos of the girls helping out neighbor garden, and making fun crafts. Lots of cuteness going on!

OK, this is about a month old, but too cute not to share. It was a morning when the weather was a bit too chilly to go for a walk, but we were in an “outing” kind of mood. So I packed up the girls and we drove over to AC Moore to find some fun $1 crafts. They each got two ~ more on those later.

When we got home, the weather was a bit nicer. Vera and Vincent, the lovely Italian couple who live next door, were in their back yard. The girls spotted them, so we HAD to go and visit. Vera was working on her flower gardens. The girls decided to help.

Once all the flowers were planted ~ at which point Mommy finally realized she had her camera with her and should start taking pictures ~ it was time for some watering. So Vada helped Vera fill the water.

Then it was time to water away! (more…)

In mid-May Jenn had a wonderful idea to take the girls on a great little outing for one of our Wednesday Play/Craft Days.

We got all dolled up and the girls put on their shoes. Look at those cute little pink toenails! One day they noticed mine and just begged for pretty pink toes, too. So now we have fun mommy and girls mani/pedi days about once a week. They love it. I love the hair drier with the cool setting I use to dry them so they don’t get nail polish on everything! (more…)

Many moons ago I bought some fun flannel froggie fabric, but it has sat in a box ever since. Last month I put a bit of it to use, but as some of the creations were gifts, I had to wait to share.

See the fabric? Isn’t it just Froggie Fabulous?

Can you guess what I made? I made a couple to give away, and a couple for my girls. Here is one all pinny. Any guesses yet? (more…)

Have I told you all how much I LOVE CafeMom?¬† It’s a great site for mommies of all ages, from those just thinking about becoming moms, to those with great~grandkids. There are some amazing groups with wonderful ladies who have helped me through all sorts of things, and many who have become my friends. If you ever have a single mommy~related question, just go there to get some great advise. There is even an amazing group full of crock~pot recipes. How cool is that?

Anyway, back to the topic. A few weeks ago I got a message from CafeMom. It turns out in my use of their lovely site, I was entered in a drawing to win a Roomba, and I won! It was actually the day before my birthday. Again, very cool.

So, today, this showed up.

I had some technical difficulties with my laptop just after my last post. Everything is working fine now, but I sure have a lot of reading to catch up on with all the blogs I love to read!

The girls and I have been taking lots of morning walks. We spend a long time walking through the park, and sometimes end with a while playing in the playground. (more…)
