I have a little case of What I call the march blues. I know it's just silly but I LOVE February! All the little red hearts and the romantic writing is just right up my alley.
My mom always tried to make February really special for me and I only hope I can do the same for my family. No she wasn't crafty but she did it in other ways, like stopping on the road side at the first site of a fresh Strawberry stand and always buying me cute pj's and chocolate for Valentine's Day. This year has also hit me really hard because I was the same age my mom was when she died 34.
Joe and I had went into Blockbusters and found these jawbreakers for the kids. We thought it was pretty cool that they came on a stick. They were very surprised and Ricky had to show Dylan how to lick it. It was to cute.
I took Ricky and Dylan to the South coast plaza mall a couple weeks ago. They have a carasall there and when Ricky was little he loved to ride it. So Ricky asked Dylan if he wanted to go on and of coarse he did. The lady working was so nice. She asked Dylan if he was going to ride the horse and he said NO I'm going to ride the Dragon, I'm a Pirate. He was so serious, Ricky and I just looked at each other and tried not to laugh because you know Pirates don't ride horses they ride Dragons.
I made Dylan a cute little pillow out of a dish towel and a wash cloth and we've been putting a treat in it everyday. In the picture He was eating a Jellybean bracelet I made the night before. But i also found a bouncy ball, some stickers, temporary tattoos, a pez machine, a police car and a few little things like that to put in the pocket. I know he will love it. OK so I'm not really a sewer, although I would LOVE to be. To tell you the truth I haven't sewn anything since 7th grade and I was horrible at it. The whole time all I could do is think about my 7th grade teacher Ms Scott..... Well I'll be sewing a new one this weekend now that I figured out how to make a pillow but for now this one will do.
Dish towel came from target 2 pack for 3.99 and the washclothes were a 2 pack $2.50. I LOVE target.
Joey and I met in High School, our freshmen year. Where we fell head over hills in love...
We eventually married and had two children. We are very fortunate to have two Beautiful boys, Ricky 15 and Dylan who is 2. They keep us on our toes. We moved to Temecula California to raise our family. It's so beautiful here. The people are wonderful, and the weather is great...
