Can I sew?

Well, this is the question I'm asking myself...can I sew? I don't know but I think I want to find out. My Grandmother and my Mom are both seamstresses, but will I be. Who knows? I think I can...I mean I think that I'll be able to do it. However, I don't think I'll be a "pattern" sort of sewer...I'd much rather just dive in and figure out how to do it in a way that makes sense to me. Of course, this might be totally wrong and not at all possible but we'll see! Thankfully I've got a great friend whose willing to let me borrow a sewing machine she has just to see if I can do it!

Thursday, May 27, 2010 it a four letter word??

Well Monday I get a frantic, well for Terry it was frantic, call telling me "I MUST" come into work because he needed help answering the phone. So, me and the kids load up toys, snacks, books, DS, computers and head to work. Now, for those of you who know, Jennifer works alot for the guys...(Thank God for her abilities), but I don't usually. However, this week as been an exception; everyday since that phone call I (and the kids) have gone to work. I am tired, sore and so very appreciative that I don't have to do this every week. I am very thankful that God gave me the desire and the ability to stay home with our children. It is and has been a blessing, but I think that I needed this reminder; not that I was planning on going to work or anything. I needed the reminder that being at home with my children is a privilege I should not take for granted. Tomorrow is (maybe??) my last day!! Can't say that I'm sad about that!! So, to answer my question...."No" I don't think work is a four letter word, for me it was affirming that I'm doing what He has called me to do!! And it's also made me very thankful for Jen! Love Ya!

Happy Birthday, Loulou's Legacy, Happy Birthday To You...

Yep...LouLou's Legacy, my diary, for lack of a better description is ONE! I can't believe that it's been a whole year since I started this. I can't really imagine NOT blogging. I know that I might have times where there are weeks between posts, but it's still an important part of ME. Now, I'm looking forward to seeing my blog as a book!

Yay for me...

I sort of figured out how to do a header...sort of...and I like my new background. For now, I'm just glad that there are all sorts of possibilities for backgrounds in the blogging world! I do like my blog; I also like knowing that one day my children will have my ramblings to remember me by!

Jackson's Kindergarten Graduation...

Well, I cried...yep, teared up right there on the bottom bleacher. On my other experience with a kindergarten graduation I cried then too. I can make it pretty good on the first day of school, but put me in a graduation situation and I get teary. He, of course, did fine...hated his outfit but what else in new. Now he's a first grader!

Getting his diploma...

Mrs. Danna he says "she's my favorite teacher!"...we'll see how well he likes his next years teacher.

Spring Break...Part 2

After a trip to work with Daddy...I mean really, I think he must just get in the floor and roll around!

He managed to get this dirty in our back yard!

He couldn't hang on any longer!

Family Night

I follow another blog and this lady does this really cool thing with her family. She throws them this little "party" that is created all around a theme. It can be as simple or as elaborate as your want it to be. Recently, my sis-in-law inspired me to do are pics from our first attempt.

Our theme was "Astro Boy"...we ate flying saucer quesidillas, cosmic rice...and then we enjoyed the movie!!
