spending time with dad...

I love dad time..spending time with dad is so important to my girls...well it really is good for all of us..Of course they get away with murder most of the time... My girls do have their dad wrapped around thier baby fingers...but I think he wouldn't have it any other way!! Spending time with dad usually gets them ice cream as well!

our parents

So today my parents have been married for 40 years....holy moly ...I don't think many people can say that they want to be just like their parents but I do. They not only were super parents but they have shown me how they are a great couple. I think that is what the secret have to take care of each other and trust that the rest will follow ....I hope I will have the same effect on my girls and their relationships as my parents have had and still have on mine. Thanks Mom and Dad you deserve the best and luckily you have had it for 40 years. Thanks for looking! Have a great day!

from a thankful me...

I love love love Sarah Kay stamps...I haven't used this one for a while and thought I would get some of my lonely sets out and start to use them... so glad I did! The girls have had friends over after school most of this week so we are slowly getting things ready for the garage sale...(at Michelle's) it is hard to let go of their kid toys but it is better to pass them on to those who need them! Thanks for stopping by!

So I happen to have a soft spot for most things Japanese .... and so Michelle was right on the mark with this card she made me for my Birthday! Cool right!! The ribbon slides off so you can write in the inside and not worry about messing up the kimono. Good one Michelle! P.S. if you have seen the sun send it back to me please!! Thanks for looking and have a great day!!
