Sorry I have been out of pocket for a day or so. Todd the Bod and I were in New Orleans for the national championship. And I DO NOT want to hear from you Alabama fans!! ha I had a few pics already loaded up, so I am sharing those until I load up LOTS of pictures from New Orleans. This is the other day when E, G, and I all sat down and made bracelets from a kit they got from Santa. I have to make some ORDER in the closets by actually USING the toys, games, books, etc that we have/ got for Christmas.
That is part of my own little strategy for ORDER. And when we had several bands leftover, I THREW THEM AWAY! Goooooo me!! That is highly unusual. I think it's an artsy thing. I can't throw anything away. I always think I can make something out of something, so I usually end up accumulating. So, I am proud that I just threw it right away. You "green" folks, don't lay into me. If you could see my upcycling area, you'd realize I just can't keep it all!
And I also think it's a nice way to make me sit down with my little precious ones and take the time to really spend together and all share the same activity.
Ellie's bracelet was covered in bling and glittery puffy paint. Aren't you surprised?! I know you are. She's usually so "plain" and "boring" and muted. You know all tan, and beige, and white. HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
This is mine. It says "Use ur Gift". That's my abbreviated mission statement. I plan to wear it on "turquoise day", as Ellie calls it. Pretty appropriate since that's the day we wear our turquoise shirts. Don't think that one has missed it one little bit. She doesn't miss much actually. Ok, so here it is... your one and only time to let me have it, Bama. If I heard "Roll Tide" once this weekend, I heard it a thousand. So dish it out. I can take it. And no matter what, I can tell you that regardless of the outcome, the time I got to spend with my hubby alone, out of town, and at a total passion of his (LSU football) was just totally worth it. Making memories. It's what makes a FULL life!
