Good Monday Morning to ya!
It is freezing cold here, but we are glad. Don't get me wrong we love to be outside playing, but we need some winter. I hope we get more winter weather to get rid of all the buggy bugs.
The kiddos are safe at school and I am doing things kid free around the house. It is clean sheets day and I am getting the weekend laundry done. I'm helping a few ladies with Thirty-One orders and also ... I am mailing Thirty-One NEW SPRING catalogs later today, so if you want one let me know. I will be happy to get one in the mail to you this afternoon.
If you want to see the new catalog online just visit my Thirty-One website.
Let me just say I love my Dyson vacuum cleaner. Gary and I have gone though so many $100 vacuum cleaners in our marriage. I can't even count them all. We bought a Dyson after Hayden was born and I have loved it. Sadly it has been cranky lately. It hasn't been performing like it did when we first bought it. This morning I called Dyson customer support. WOW! They are amazing. We did several things to my machine and now it seems to be working so much better. The true test will come tomorrow after the filters have dried. I'm hoping my Dyson Animal will be working good as new soon!
Yesterday was a fun day for our little family. The kids were so excited about Super Bowl Sunday. They loved saying up a tad later to watch some football and commercials. Layla was especially happy to see all the commercials with dogs. We also made tons of snacks and ate too much food all afternoon long.
Sadly we all ate so much guacamole we weren't really hungry for the buffalo chicken bites we were planning on making.
AND...the bread we made was not good.
I baked a home made loaf of bread and we cut it apart and poured goodness into it, but it wasn't good.
I will not give up though....
I will make this recipe better. Hopefully I will share my version soon. Gary and I haven't really been eating that much bread since we are both counting calories. I have to say I was very disappointed that this didn't turn out. I have been so ready for some good bread. Oh well. Like I said, we will try again soon.
The other part of the day that was fun yesterday was creating the kids Valentine boxes. I can't wait to share them with you! Layla also addressed all the cards for her classmates. She had a fun time picking out Valentines for her friends and Hayden had fun pretending he can write as good as his big sissy! And since we mentioned sissy...
Layla has a recent obsession with having me put her hair into a bun. It really isn't that awesome of a bun because she doesn't really have enough hair. It falls into a pony tail really quickly, BUT she loves it. She said she wanted her hair to look like mine. She also mentioned her teacher at school, Mrs. Aslin, sometimes wears a bun in her hair and she thinks it looks so cute. We are so blessed Layla has an amazing teacher. I am thankful for the amazing role models Layla has/had in her teachers. Layla still talks about her kindergarten teacher. We are blessed!
Have a great day!
