This is my favorite current layout: every now and then i come across a product that i know i can't wait to get in my hands! this k & co sentiment is one of them. it reminds me of KI lace paper. and die cut machines that i wish i had :) sometimes i get a photo back and i just know which product i'm gonna use it with. and very rarely, i make a layout without any of my own personal handwritten journaling on it. and i'm okay with it. the product, photo and vibe just flow and i am so happy with it :)
The other day at E's school, they hosted a Japan day, which also fell on Very Special Person day. I was thrilled to be her special guest:) It's neat to see her in her own element. Socializing, listening, participating. I just melt when I see her little face light up! Udon for snack!
One of the many reasons I love preschool for my children. One, they have a way with kids that I just don't :) They can take the simplest objects and turn it into the funnest activity. Especially when it comes to paint or anything messy. That's why I pay them the big bucks! :)
One of my favorite parts of preschool, the playgrounds. They always make it so fun for the kids- putting out themed activities. Over winter, they even trucked in some snow from the local mountains!
The lovely necklace she made me for coming to her 'very special person' day. She was so proud to have me there with her, as I was proud to be there. We love school days :) ;)
Sorry for the delay, here's the two lovely winners from the ella drawing:
this is what she woke up to when she came downstairs. wall o' elsie and goodies :) we do the pics like this for every kid on their birthday night and keep it up all week. night of real birthday. she saw this outfit on a mannequin at jcrew and wanted it so bad. glad i held out till her birthday! i love that little yellow necklace/belt thing! those jcrew people, so creative! next day, party day! a few little friends at the nearby indoor playground. sportin her yellow belt again :) happy as can be!
BFF and els! at the party place, everytime i took my camera out, els would say, no pictures! :) finally at the end, she gave in and at least i got thiiiiis. :) i love it! the night before she turned four, she asked, "why are you sad that i'm turning four? i'm excited!!" :) i am excited too... just means she's growing up and of course that makes me sad. :) a few days passed and she said, "why are my pictures still up? (the picture wall) oh yeah, it's my birthday, i just LOOOOVE birthdays!" :) little party animal :)
he's been traveling but is now home. i can't explain how out of whack my head and heart gets when he's gone. i'm so thankful for all my munchkins that keep me on my toes, not too much time to really feel sorry for myself! he's my partner that gets to tackle our day to day life with moi- working, parenting. parenting especially. last week was incredibly emotional for me. as soon as i picked him up from the airport till the minute we fell asleep, i don't think i stopped talking. :) i love him. (i'm super thankful for my 2 girls (sil and conster) who babysat me on text/fb/phone while i talked their ears off everrrryday) :)
