Holy cow! I did NOT realize that it has been so long since I last posted.
Be prepared this post has lots of photos.
This of course is our finished product for Kelly's class today. Granted I did most of the work but Kelly stamped the from and wrote her name plus put her classmates name on the back. Her and Wyatt took turns putting the candy in. In class today her teacher is giving each kid a brown paper bag that they can decorate. All Mrs. Watt had was markers so Kelly and I used the Cricut to cut out tons of hearts to be glued on the bags.

Mom Ross came over for lunch yesterday and she got Chelsea to giggle over this stuffed puppy. Chelsea has been hell on wheels lately. She is driving us completely nuts. Wants to be held ALL the darn time, otherwise she screams her head off. Less than two weeks ago if I turned on the vacuum she would laugh now she cries. Thankfully we are starting to see a tooth pop through. I can't take a picture because A) Chels moves too much B) it's just a tiny speck.

Here are the Mr. Bear photos. Look at those blue eyes! I finally got them! I learned that my flash can actually face backward, who knew? Now I'm playing with it more to get more flattering results. It's been hard to get the midget in a good mood and even when I did this I could barely get a smile of of her. I did happily get a picture of her and Wyatt together. That boy is getting some long legs(finally), and is looking so grown up next to his baby sister.

The official 7month Mr. Bear photo.
I have seen such cute, adorable, eat you up clothes in the stores lately for little girls. I wish money was no problem because this little girl would be stylin'. She is just too dang cute and should dress as such.

This last Sunday I took my 40 simple hand made cards to church and stood before the congregation and told them about Random Acts of Kindness week. After I was finished several people came up to me and told me RAK things they like to do, some thanked me and everyone raved over the cards. By the end of service all 40 were gone. I'm touched, I was so not expecting that all of them would go. I'm thinking that I will make a few here and there and take them in to give away.
One of the cards I sent out last fall the receipent came up to me and said she received a card similar to my style and that it made her day and is still sitting on her dresser. She said I don't know if you had anything to do with it but I think it was cool. Oh my gosh. the card is still sitting on her dresser?! I just wanted to make her smile and I believe I did way more than that. YAY GOD!!
If you do something pure of heart God will see and use it. Whoo hoo.

Here are my finished v-day cards. Did I post this already? I'm sad to say that I have not mailed any of these out. Who knows, maybe I'll send them out randomly throughout the year. I think that would mean more anyway.

For my last photo I went out this past weekend (can't remember which evening and took this photo. I was hoping for one of our more colorful sunsets but the clouds just weren't there.
I need to crop this but I did something in photoshop and I can't get what I want. so in all it's original glory here it is.
Gotta go can't take the screaming and fussing any longer and she is sitting on my lap. aaaarrrrgh.

Hey Kiddo, glad to have you back. And Wow, a whole lot of things going on.

The valentines turned out soooo cute, but you didn't say how they went over for the class.

Its been a rough week I know. I don't call you alot because of blue eyes, when I do she is usually a fuss pot. Hopefully things will get better with the teeth coming in....and speaking of teeth, you just have to get a picture of Kelly, she is too cute without her top front teeth.

Gotta go, have called one of Marie's sisters, now I have to try and reach the other one.

Love to all
