A Mother’s Day Poem

Happy Mother’s Day, everyone! I wasn’t expecting much of a Mother’s Day for me this year since our focus has been on the surprise party we threw for my Mother-in-law’s 60th b-day yesterday.

School Valentines 2011

Leave it to me to take a great simple idea and turn it into a great complicated one. I loved the valentines we made for my son’s class last year, and since he is at a new school and my daughter hadn’t done these before, we decided it was a great enough concept for a […]
