So still no crafty posts yet. But I'm starting to get that itch! I LOVE fall and have lots of cute crafts I want to do. I did organize my kids DVDs and am really happy with how they turned out so I thought I would share a few pics...

Maddie's 1st day of school!

Hi! I am feeling much better today! YAY! Maddison had a pretty good day at school. She still wants to be home but at least says school wasn't THAT bad. :) I take it as a compliment that she isn't sick of me by the end of summer :P Anyways for the 1st day of school we always do a 1st day gift. This year I tried making the kids Schultuete school cones. (I gave Braden his early. I knew he wouldn't want to wait) It's a tradition in Germany. The kids loved them!

Maddie's 1st day outfit! She picked it out herself this year!

Maddison and her 2nd grade teacher Mrs. Winegar

And of course you can't forget the most important part! The 1st day of school cake! (we have done this every year since pre-school) Braden helped me decorate it this year!

Feeling Blue

Not my most fun post tonight. So you can skip right on by if you want. Sorry! Hoping to be happy and upbeat tomorrow. It's the night before my daughter starts school and I am feeling so sad tonight :( I can't quite decide the reason. I have a few...
- Summer is done
-She is getting so stinking big! It kills me how fast she is growing up
-She keeps begging me to stay home
-I am going to miss her so so much
I'm so sorry to be complaining but I just needed a place to get it out. Hubby is asleep and I'm feeling a bit lonely so I thought I would spill it out here. If you read thanks and I promise not to moan and groan for a while again... I do feel a bit better now. Maybe I will go get the fun things ready for tomorrow stay tuned I promise to share pics.

What's in My Bag?

While doing some blog reading I stumbled across a post at Love Stitched where she shows us what is in here bag and asks us what is in ours. I thought this sounded like fun! So here you are... I have everything I could ever want or need in here!

The coolest thing I can tell you about my purse is that it has divided sections inside! They are amazing! It keeps my purse clean and everything easy to find. It is a Butler bag. For the longest time I had one on my wish list but they are super expensive. (Check out their website- you will drool!) But then one day I read somewhere they sold a line at KMart (I know crazy!!!) so off I ran (that day) and bought this one for around $20! I love it! I have always been a purse person, changing my purses daily but now I can't bear to use any others.

Hoo Are You?

Gosh I am so sorry I haven't been posting much lately... I have 2 more weeks of summer left with Maddie so we are really trying to get the most out of them! But I did want to play my favorite bloggy game of the week!

Kind of a darker blond color

2. Which do you prefer, sunrises or sunsets?

Def Sunsets. I hate waking up early so Sunrises are a no go for me!

Probably their faces in general. Smiles and eyes and such!

Definately talking! I think texting can be misinterpreted easily...
