my Diva daughter

It seems I always have much to say about my son Josh, but tonight it's all Hannah, my Diva child. I'm not sure where she got her Diva style, totally more nature than nurture 'cause anyone who knows me knows that I'm no fashion plate! LOL Hannah has a style all her own! It's no joke that Hannah loves shoes, I mean LOVES shoes. She is known to trade shoes in church, school pretty much wherever! And now I can add makes her own shoes to the list! Yep, tonight I walked in on Gheppeto's shoe shop in my kitchen. Cardstock...check Tape...check Staples...check a little girl with a creative imagination...CHECK! I'm not sure I should be worried quite yet at the size of the heels she was attempting to create! Who knows maybe someday people will wear her original designs, but for now it's just a prototype and she may have to rethink the cardstock...Patent Pending

Son of a scrapper....

I am so proud of Josh tonight, even though earlier I wanted to ring his neck!!! Here is why: the kids have been on break from school, and there were days when Josh was "bored out of his mind" and we asked him..."do you have any homework?" Nooooo was his reply. So to my delight (inject sarcasm) he came to me yesterday and said, "Um mom, I have a project due on Monday" And I smiled and hugged him and...NOT I was so mad at him, I refused to help him! He was on his own! So today after church I took a nap,Dave went to work and Josh started working on his project. Oh he did try and wake me several times but I was not helping.... Imagine my delight when I woke up and he had most of the game board finished, complete with rules and cards!! So I softened a little bit and let him use my Cricut Expression to cut out the letters. I think it turned out pretty good!! He is a Son of a Scrapper!!! So proud!!
