Megan's grace and Jessica's jewellery

Have to start with this, Megan's grace at dinner time...

"Dear Jesus, thank you for the day and thank you for this pigeon poo..."

Yes Grandma we had mashed veggies!! For years I got away with calling it monster mash but then the girls found out that Dave, growing up, called it pigeon poo and tonight they decided to have fun with other names... Jessica called her serving Snake spew (spelt speooy).

Thought I would share Jessica' creation that she made for Mother's day. I love it :)

Today I finished off the other 2 mini canvases

and then I scrapped this photo of Elizabeth

Journaling "You love to blow dandelion heads! Daddy doesn't because it makes more grow in the lawn :) On this day I watched you blowing and I thought about how you'd grown. Once you were a baby then puff a gorgeous young lady!"

Also today I found out that I made it through to the final list for the Project Scrap Away Contest shocked to say the least but looking forward to seeing what the challenges are. So here is the page I made and sent in.

“When did your legs get so long?
When did you get so big?
I am sure it was just yesterday that you were just a little baby???
Did I close my eyes for too long and miss the transformation of baby to young lady? Seems like the blink of the eye.
Has it really been 7 years since you were growing inside of me? Almost 7 years since you decided it was your time to enter the world 7 years since our family grew by 1 again.
The time really has gone by so very fast and that scares me, before long you will take your butterfly wings and see how far they can spread. It scares me because I just don’t want to miss any of this. I don’t want to close my eyes and have 7 more years gone before I see how long those legs have got. So Jessica please PLEASE know that I am here for you, to help those wings unfold and to marvel at all you transform into. I love you.”

Pin It Now!
