Easter Egg Hunt Pictures

Jonathan was thrilled to search for more Candy - boy the dentist is going to love us today!!!

Cody was trying to act like he wasn't having as much fun as everyone else!

Samantha, Natalie, Eric, Kellie & Wyatt also found lots of goodies in the eggs.

Easter Treats

These are the treat bags I made for all the kids! They were filled with candy, erasers and a couple of other special things. Pink for the girls blue for the boys. All supplies/stamps came from Papertrey Ink.

Sweetie's Birthday Treats

Ok, I know, crafts for a dog's birthday party??? Everyone deserves something cute on their special day! I made this bag for Sweetie on her 1st birthday. Just bringing a box of Milk bones just seemed too...ordinary. Jazz it up!

Happy Birthday to me!

39 and holding...how long will that be my motto? Who knows - but it certainly is for today - the day after. I am writing this to send a big thank you out to all of my girls for taking the time out of their busy lives to call or celebrate with me!

Danielle - thanks for including me in the big dog birthday party! LOL the pups had fun, but so did we. I am going to be better about "accessorizing." I promise! Now that you gave me all the cute jewels, how could I not. 21 years together now! Wow that is unbelievable.

Missy - Thanks for coming and sharing with the dog party. I hope Roxie had as much fun as Zeb and Sweetie did. Poor Zeb could barely lift his head up on Sunday he was so beat! I am going to miss you when you head South - but just another reason for a road trip, right?

Miss Anne - you are a lifesaver! Thanks for feeding me, listening to me whine and offering a shoulder to b*tch upon! I know you are family and you now HAVE to put up with me, but I truly appreciate it, especially yesterday : )

Jenn - You called at just the right time! There is always so much chaos in our lives, but we somehow still manage to hold a 27 year old friendship together!!! Thanks for remembering.

Lisa - Gosh, I wish we could spend more time together! I am so glad you called when you did. Really the insanity that was my house yesterday almost pushed me over the edge. I am looking forward to my birthday surprise that should be arriving any day now! You always know just what I need.

A big fat thank you goes out to all of you! Because of all of you, I managed to make it through a pretty crappy birthday "celebration" without having to fix my mascara. I love you all SO much and with the big 4-0 coming next year I am going to have to take matters into my own hands! Men are men and they just can't help themselves, thank god for girlfriends.

Anyone who posts a comment on the blog will get a special treat from me...

New Blog Banner

This is my first real attempt at creating a blog banner. I like how it turned out. I took the photo of our blooming Japanese Maple - I flipped the photo to fit in the banner! The flowers were not as clear as I hoped they would be - but I was the genius who tried to take a picture with gale force winds blowing around me.

Teacher's Gifts!!

Ok - it's the end of the school year and you are desperately trying to figure out something unique to give your child's teacher - well I have the perfect gift idea!! Each set comes with a Pen/pencil holder covered in "school" related paper, 4 pencil "flowers," a post-it note pad and a card - that looks like a mini chalkboard - the message reads "A hundred years from now...it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove, but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child." If you would like to order one of these for the end of the year - contact me for details at plpurses@yahoo.com .
