...and a belly button, too!!!

Well...Allison is well on her way to a career as an artist. Her artistic skills rival those of her older sisters, when they were 2 (almost 3) years old.

As you see here...this is a person. Complete with arms and legs....and a belly button, too. She was quick to point this out to us. The stuff at the top of the person is it's hair. She must be basing this look on her mom's hair-do (or don't) first thing in the morning.
When Katie and Emily drew these...we called them "potato people". Can you guess why? :)

If she draws something for you, someday. Save it. It will be worth millions. Eventually. least to her dad and

Have a wonderful day!!!

RAK's Rock!!!

Um...yeah...dorky title. But they do...RAK's rock!

A RAK, you ask? RAK stands for Random Act of Kindness. These can be in many forms, but the RAK's that I see most often are scrappy stuff. Scrappers who want to share their bounty of scrappy awesomeness. And I appreciate that. Seriously.

Last week, I found out that I had won a RAK from this fine lady - Leah... Her scrapping style is one that I find difficult to copy but VERY lovely to look at. Very vintage-y and shabby chic. She is the designer of a kit club's kits ( and the club wanted to share May's kit. I left a comment on her blog - telling what I thought of the kit - and I won.

And today...I got the kit.

It is lovely. That is a picture of some of the items, in the picture above. Old fashioned flowers on paper that looks as if it has crackled paint. These are colors that I think that my mom would like. So...I am going to scrapbook a baby picture of her. Hopefully, it will turn out nicely.
On another camera dock is broken. (So, no new pics of the kids. Can't wait to get some new photos. They are growing so fast. Especially that baby.) It has hit the floor too many times to recover (don't ask). So....we are waiting to stimulate the economy by getting a new one...hurry Uncle Sam. Our stimulus check should be mailed soon.
I also need a new dryer. And a new alternator(sp?) on the van. And some new summer clothes, haircuts, shoes for the girls. Hurry up, Uncle Sam. Write that

Happy Mother's Day to you!

...and me!!!

Terrible of me not to have a more recent photo of the 3 of them together, but my camera has been on the outs (well...just the dock, so I cannot charge it or download it for right now).

These 3 make my days and nights as a momma complete. And I think that it is totally appropriate that they are all 3 looking in different directions...the photo is blurry because of the motion. Yeah...just like everyday.

I may have my good days and I know that I have my bad days...but when I lay me head down at night, I am thankful for the fun, joy, stinkiness :o, chaos, love, hugs, kisses, questions, headaches, exasperation, elation and EVERYthing that these girls give to Eric and me.

We are blessed. This we know for sure.

Happy Mother's Day to all...and to all a good night's
