Marla is such a cute little girl.  I know she won't stay this little for long.  She has gained 4 pounds in about a month.

We went to the Chiefs game tonight to watch one of the Cardinals players who is on a rehab visit.

I loved these crazy bird stamps from the moment I saw them.  I finished this art journal page using them.  I want to do other pages as well and some greeting cards of course!

Day 145, Monday, May 25, 2015

Today is Memorial Day.  We had a cookout with the kids.  We ate burgers and brats.  I bought the red noses at Walgreens and we had a little fun with them!  Love my family!

Jim and I got this bookcase assembled from Ikea.  I wanted to move my scrapbooks out into the family room so maybe someone besides me will look at them.

We went to Ikea in Bolingbrook this morning.  We had a car load of stuff.  I got a bookcase, coffee cart, art cart and lots of little stuff for the kitchen.  Love, Love, Love Ikea!

I was so excited to see the Rainer Cherries today!  They are only in season for a few weeks.  This seems really early for them.  At $6.99 a pound, I didn't get many!

Our Michael's store has been moving to a new location down the street.  They new store opened their doors yesterday.  I couldn't wait to go see everything.  It is a much bigger store.  I didn't use this coupon.  Nothing was on sale and I don't like to buy unless things are on sale.

Our kindergarten class has been studying butterflies.  Today they released the 5 painted lady butterflies that grew from larvae before their eyes.

This is my art journal from the next to last lesson.  Donna Downey is such an inspirational artist.  She really motivates you to try different techniques, colors and products.

Day 133, Wednesday, May 13, 2015

I received an order from Peachy Cheap.  The envelope was empty.  I called the company and they refunded my money.  It couldn't be replaced because Peachy Cheap is a one and done website.  Somewhere between here and Utah is the contents of my package.  

Day 132, Tuesday, May 12, 2015

Marla and Coco are not very good friends.  Marla just wants to play, but she bites all the time.  Coco doesn't like that at all.  Today, when I put him in the kennel, Marla had a kong with a treat inside.  He was very interested in that Kong!

Happy Mother's Day!  We went to eat at a Mexican Restaurant for lunch.  We all went home and took a nap after having a few drinks.  My parents came over for dinner and we cooked hamburgers on the grill.  (I forgot to get a pic with my mom!)  We took a planter with lots of little blooms over to Jim's mom.

Day 129, Saturday, May 9, 2015

This little girl looks like E.T. in this picture.  She plays so hard, when she goes to sleep she is dead to the world.  Nate kept putting toys on her to see if she would wake up!

Day 128, Friday, May 8, 2015

These two boys are so fun!  Corbie and Zane came to visit their momma at school today.  They both love to play hockey and watch hockey, too.  They are really great kids and I was very happy to see them today!

Day 127, Thursday, May 7, 2015

Some see a weed, some see a wish!

Day 126, Wednesday, May 6, 2015

Coco's favorite toy is always a plush squeaker.  He will play fetch as many times as you will throw it.  When the squeaker no longer squeaks, he opens the seam, gets the squeaker out and chews it up.  Then he rips all of the stuffing out.  And finally, turns the toy inside out.  Every.  Time.

Day 125, Tuesday, May 5, 2015

This is the anniversary card that Cindy made for us.  She mailed it on April 30, took it to the post office, paid the extra postage and surcharge for it to be hand cancelled and it just arrived today.

This week is Teacher's Appreciation Week at school.  Cindy and I found all of these ideas on Pinterest.  We worked on them for the past couple of weeks to get them ready for today.

We completed our tag album yesterday.  I am not sure what pictures I am going to put in it.  My goal for summer, is to fill all the mini albums I have finished.

I have been driving by this tree everyday for work.  I just love how the color pops against the blue sky!
