Creating Memories

I read this and I had to share.. What a great article..

"Your Children want you" by April Perry at The Power of Moms.

A mom who is creating/crafting almost every day I am usually so tired and honestly don't want to look at a stack of paper/felt or fabric.. Then the guilt sets in that I don't do as many craft project with the kidoos  as I use to or work on all those things on my decor to do list for my home..  I think as a mother and wife we tend to put so many standards on our self's and compare our self's with others... I tend to find myself saying we need to take the kids to this event and to that event. I have such great intentions of making each holiday & birthday so special, trying so hard to make those moments so memorable..

After reading the above article, I started to think... All those birthday's that I would through large parties, fun themes and extravagant decorations (that my husband and I stay up so late making the night before)... what did this kiddos like the most presents of course, but every year I make special chocolate chip pancakes with a whip cream smiley face. And they will always ask me the night before "mom are you going to make me my special pancakes". Those are those precious memories that I have been working so hard on creating. I don't have to work so hard, I can be my self! My children love me and cherish me as I do them.. Our good night talks, tucking them in every night our silly dancing and talks over dinner and the list can keep going.. What a blessing to realize this and maybe one day our children will carry on some of the same family traditions that we do now with there families and create new memories and traditions with there families when they get older (allot older, LOL) as I know my husband and I did with ours (childhood memories).

Each moment is a treasure, I  cherish every breath I have with my children. And yes, I will still look online and magazines to create fun activities for the kids and I probably still through some fun parties, because that is who I am. But if I can't, Its ok!!

PTC Coral Academy Fair

I was very excited about the display for our frames… This was the first time they were going to be up were everyone can see them. Lately I have only had them on my table, which did no justice for them... I am so proud of Arthur (my husband) for finishing this for me; we literally finished putting it together the night before the show. We still have to stain it and my plan is to put a back drop behind the whole display, but I have to say it came out so good despite not being a 100% in our eyes.

  (Don't mind me in drinking coffee.. I wish she would have told me she was taking a picture... But I am greatful I forgot my
camera so this was a blessing that I have pictures
from this show)
I had so much fun at the fair, I got so many great compliments on my display and I met some fantastic ladies there and had a great time visiting with my mom… Sold a good amount of my product as well... That’s always a Plus! It was a great day all the way around! Looking forward to my next show!
