We drug out the water slide.....you can't tell it from this shot....but Chloe has completely outgrown this bathing suit....and simply refuses to wear her bikini...wonder if she will refuse to wear a bikini when she is 16 ??We rode scooters and big wheels.

I love this baby......look for all kinds of new goodies !!
Big Shot = easy and fun !!
My vintage cotton ribbon arrived today.....ooh ooh ooh I love this stuff !!

Chloe wanted to have these to add to her bug collection....I just could not let her have them... I was afraid she would destroy them and I wanted to put them up and save them.....is that horrible of me?
some day she will be glad I did.....
Thank you mom.........for making bugs.

when they are fast asleep
and brush you fingers on their cheek
and smell their hair
I just did
A love that amazes me
When she is sleeping she looks to me just like she did the day I brought her home
I am so thankful and so in love....

No....I do not cook food on the icky pan. Fun Halloween colors.
So...hubby comes in from running last night
"look what I found while running..."
I am thinking....20 dollar bill.....one of Chloe's long lost happy meal toys....Michael Phelps.....
NOPE....a baby snake
not near as scary as a non-baby snake....more like a worm....it was so sweet.
I kinda wanted to wake Chloe to see it....I thought better of that.
I kinda wanted to keep it...thought better of that too.
officially our last one until the first Tuesday of no school.
I am glad we will still have afternoons though...this has became such a fun and special time.
the fortunes are appropriate for kiddos....the first one she ate said...you bring sunshine to many lives...well yea that is true....but could it not have said something about the good things that happen when you keep the playroom clean.I love love love these cheap colorful washcloths from Target......my favorite....teal.
dollar section goodies....
While I unpacked the shopping bags....Chlo-bug worked a puzzle.
Isn't finishing a puzzle a GREAT feeling....
The after lunch craft.....we made our countdown to DISNEY poster/chart.

A little Halloween bouquet at the Cricut booth.
While this is a photo of Summer...its really not...its actually Summer and I proving that MEN do go to scrapbook conventions.....more men there this year than any year previously.....are men getting into paper crafts other than carefully folding back the sports page for optimal reading of that article way up in the corner.
oodles and oodles of chipboard books at Rusty Pickle....I know some of you who would have loved to get your hands on these deals.
Yummy...Skinny Cow was there giving away treats.....but first read the napkin.
I bought myself a box of these yesterday....so don't be surprised if you see some Skinny Cow drip embellishments at JaneSays (wink)

I did a post a while back and said that something I would like to take a stab at was tie dying.
So....she hooked me up with a tie-dye kit.
Really looking forward to trying that.
Thanks so much Crystal for a sweet and thoughtful gift.
have a happy day.

Chloe starts her last year of preschool very soon.
Yep...I'm saying the same thing all of you are....where did time go?
We will still have afternoons though...she only goes to school half a day....yipeeee !!!!
Not to worry....the together tuesday madness will not end.
So....you know we did some shopping today...
first we hit the craft store.I am not a fall person...nor a winter person
It is VERY HARD for me to create with the color palettes of those seasons.
As you know if you have visited JaneSays....I love bright happy springy color.
Let the creative block begin....Hopefully these goodies will give me a much needed jump start.
that pack of 5 notebooks......50 cent....holy cow...Great for Chloe to tote around.
This is the new paper I just put in the shop......just try not the FALL in love with it.....for Fall colors its not too bad.
go get you some......
ladies....I need some advice...how do you clean an iron.
My iron is filthy from accidentally ironing the wrong side of heat n bond and stuff like that too many times.....any suggestions ??
have a happy day

It's my birthday.....however.....ONE of you will be receiving the gift.
A customized Sweet Birdy handtowel.
If you win you choose the color combination.....and a sweet birdy towel will be on her way to you.
How do you win?
Leave me a comment telling me if we were the BEST of friends ....what gift under $20.00 (because I would love a new mercedes...but let's be fair.....) you would give to me.
On Sunday I will choose the gift I would most like to receive and yes I will be completely honest....and the imaginary buyer of that gift.....wins the towel.
What happens if 2 of you buy me the same gift that I want the most.....I will resort to the old name draw.
So let's go !!!!! Some real gifts I have received from friends......
I have all intentions of using most of this for my personal scrapbooking.....thanks so much Shelly Belly.......You are a Treasure !!!!
