A Rough, Tough Sort of Week...

A lot of stuff has happened this week, which has thrown everything into a whirlwind, but life goes on... and whatever doesn't break us, makes us stronger, right?

Anyones, I can't elaborate on what has happened, but those of you, who know me, will know what I am talking about soon enough.    

Some good news though, my darling Jordan turned 7! I can't believe she is 7 already, where did the time go!!!
Here is a picture of her on the morning of her birthday, waiting at the bus stop...



I don't think its going to be much longer, that I will get to pick out the cutesy clothes for her too (boo hoo!).... She had a pretty good birthday, just a bit rushed! After daycare ended, we made her fav- tacos, then cake, then presents, then off to her first dance class an hour later!  WOW!!


Some REALLY good news though! I just got most of permission forms from parents in the daycare, so I will soon be starting some daycare/blogging posts for the parents to see what their kiddos have been up too, and for all of you with kids to get some neat ideas to use at your home with your kids! I am so excited about this!!  Here is a picture of Taylor... yes SHE LOVES CRAFTS... seriously she stands and points at the crayons bin, the paint, the stamps... everything... I have quite the little crafter on my hands! 

Here she is painting her paper plate green, we made these into little frogs for our literacy day! We revolve a series of activities around this book:



We played lots of fun games, and even tried our hand at leap frog! TOO CUTE!

Last but not least, some scrappy fun for you... I completed another layout using my Scrapbook Nook Design Team Kit.  Can I tell you how much I love this kit?  Here is what I created:


My friend, Deanna took some Halloween Pictures last year, and I am just getting around to scrapping them! I also entered this into a sketch contest at: CORD SCRAPBOOK STUDIO.. with a sketch from Jillibean Soup Design Team Member: Julie Bonner  (Yes I LOVE her sketches!!)

Anyways, hopefully this week will end on a high note! My mom is coming in to visit us, and to help/celebrate Jordan's birthday at the Little DIVA BFF Spa! This looks like SOOO much fun! I can't wait!!!

Opps! Forgot to tell you too! I was soup spotted today!!... You can check it out: HERE
