First Cookie!


Well, it's not really a cookie, but that's what we called it and Chloe loved it! She got it ALL over her face and her shirt. The kids had fun watching her eat it. I gave her a bath afterwards.

Mother's Day!

My Mother's Day was absolutely perfect...thanks to my dh and my sweet blessings!
DH cooked a nice breakfast. Katelyn put together a package full of my favorite things (shown in the picture collage). Her love language is 'gifts' and she loves to give (and receive) gifts! She always makes special items that she knows the recipient will cherish. She made a place mat, a tile that says, "Mom's Coffee", a scrapbook, a cute note card that says, "Happy Mom's Day", and a sign. They gave me flowers and a card, too!

After breakfast we headed to Lowe's to buy wood, flowers, and a hummingbird feeder. I asked for a 'square foot garden' for Mother's Day, so dh and the kids worked hard all day to build the planters. Later we filled the planters with rich, organic dirt. Now they are ready for me to plant! I want tomatoes, lettuce, carrots, radish, cucumber, and onion. I also want to create a Butterfly Garden for a nature study. We will go find the plants this Saturday at the Farmer's Market on the square. I noticed they will be selling organic vegetable plants...yippee! I'll post more pictures once we plant everything.

The day was fun and productive. The weather was beautiful. I enjoyed working outside and watching the kids work together to make me something special. We also, finished our hummingbird habitat and counted over 20 hummingbirds that day!

Dh cooked a delicious Mother's Day dinner and it completed my wonderful day! Notice the table that Katelyn set...she's very creative! Cason and Carrie helped her (they took orders well). :)

I hope you had a blessed Mother's Day as well.

Cherish the moments.

Blessings, Kristi
