Earth Day

Living in a small community town has lots of benefits (and some drawbacks) but on most occasions I love it. This weekend is one of those times I love it. There is a very large contingent of Earth Day supporters here and we even have an Earth Day Fair on the 3rd Saturday of April every year. It is always a fun place to visit. I love the Friends of the Library Used Book Sale every year (gently used kids books for 25 cents each). You can buy all sorts of plant starts and observe lots of earth saving items/inventions. The kids always love the snack and this year the face painting. The pictures for today are of them yesterday with their faces painted (Chase is a cheetah and Kenzie has a unicorn and stars) right before we got our fruit smoothies & Bubble Tea from Blenderz ( and a hot bag of kettle corn. It was a fun morning walk through Riverwalk Park with the kids before Mom and Dad came for the afternoon to do laundry and give Buddy at chance to run around outside.

Bunny Smores

The kids love to take treats for holidays to their friends at school. For Easter treats we have assembled "Bunny Smore Kits". Mackenzie helped assemble hers this morning as she has her Easter party today and only has school Tues, Wed and Thurs. Chase will assemble his this afternoon. They are both very excited about these little goodies and they were very easy to do. Here are a couple of pictures, one up close and one of the completed bunch for Mackenzie's school.

Contents: 1 large graham cracker broken in half, 1 small snack pack Hershey Bar, 1 Peep Bunny all placed in bag on a little easter grass.

All stamps are CTMH from the March Word Puzzle set using Sweet Leaf, Creme Brulee, Tulip and Sorbet stamp pads

Monkey See Monkey Do

Yesterday Mackenzie decided to choose her own clothes for the day. She is 4 almost 5 years old so her sense of coordinating clothes is limited to wearing her favorite shirt, her favorite pants and her favorite jacket irregardless of whether they even remotely match. Here is her choice for yesterday.
Not to be outdone by her granddaughter, my mother had her picture taken by my Dad this morning in her chosen warm attire for trimming the dog. It takes a lot of self confidence to post this type of picture online and admit she is truly one of a kind . . . My Mom!

PS - I know Melissa (my sister) is in full agreement that Mom's outfit in this picture lacks a little for tastefulness.

After several months of coloring images with my Copic markers (which I love), I finally managed to make a card with one of them. Thought I would share it - this one is for my mother-in-law who has ALS so it is just a pick-me-up! Hope you enjoy!

Used Life's Delights (CTMH) paper and the stamp is Pink Cat Studio.
