I personally ...think we should all have the day OFF work for Leap year!!
It is an extra day...Let's spend it with family...or in church...
Today for me was a normal old day...I woke up...went to work...Lyla had dance class...came home..cooked supper...thought about cleaning...didn't...put Lyla to bed...watched my TV shows and felt guilty about not cleaning...then came and blogged about it!!
I did take time out today to really sit down and play with Lyla.
I noticed the words she uses
her long fingers
how her hair is growing crazy fast
the length of her eyelashes
I took time to notice "her"
Today was also out of the ordinary because I think "everyone" I met today has asked me about being Pentecostal. I think God had planted some seeds...and maybe I was watering a few of them...can't wait for the harvest...I might see a few familiar faces in church with me!
That would be crazy!
I'm super excited that our new church building is coming along...and quickly!!
After dance class today Lyla and I went to go take a quick peek...
Lyla says that Jesus lives there ...and when it gets done...she wants to sing in our new building
She also told me that she wants to play the piano like Sister Shanice at church.....YES! I've been waiting on that! We are starting piano...asap!
I had an awesome LEAP DAY!
How was yours?
Happy 6th Birthday to my brother in law!! He was a Leap Year baby!! So this year...he is officially 6! (and in college!)
I had great plans to go out and take a wonderful picture of the moon and stars.. But I sat on my bed for just a minute and PASSED OUT ASLEEP!!
So this is all you get :
I have to have this in when I go to sleep or I won't sleep good. I don't sleep good anyway because I have a three year old doing the 'snow angel' in the middle of the bed .. So I guess I should just save electricity Anyway. I can not sleep when I'm hot Can't do it
Day 27: something you ate
Beef! It's what's for dinner!! My dad told me about these beef steaks. We tried them Love them And keep a box in our freezer
It is a great good meal that appears it took a while to cook but didn't. I love those!!
There is another photo challenge for March...I'm super excited...I am going to make it happen one month..where I take my picture and upload it everyday!! EVERYDAY!!
Fat Mum Slim did one in January too..I wish I had known...this is a great way to do my Project 366..a picture everyday for a year!!
I know it sounds like a lot...but it is so worth it when you look back
I am so glad my friend Gwen @ The Lynns in Real Life did this too..it was so cool to see how our days are so different or so similar....and how we both interpreted the challenge of the day...
Anyway..today's challenge is night...so I will take my picture tonight and post tomorrow..
Today's picture is about "green"
This is the new Rhino Rage playhouse (that is thier facebook page..don't know if it will work) in our town!! It is so close that we could probably walk to it....I doubt we ever will...because I would have to carry Lyla back...but we could if we wanted.
She had a blast there! It is just up and running ...but it is cool! Gregg liked it too..he got to jump also!
We ran our energy out there..then went shopping for kitchen cabinet hardware. We have been shopping twice before and came out with nothing...but this time....yes this time....we finally made a decision!!
Not to say that I don't like days off every now and then ....
but I don't dread going to work
This is my classroom...and that is Ms Chloe....she is a "big kid" and when she gets off the bus her first stop is my classroom (well..the snack counter...then my room) ...She reads all my students a book while I clean up my classroom at the end of the day!
She loves to read..and be in charge!
and I get my room cleaned!
Should I pick one from my wedding day?
One from when Lyla was born?
I picked this one...
This picture was taken on Christmas Day at Gregg's mom house..
This pictures reminds me that this is pretty much when I knew without a shadow of a doubt..that right there with Gregg is where I wanted to stay for the rest of my life.
I don't think anything can beat a handwritten note.
I would rather have a note from my husband than flowers or jewelry.
I know that when he buys me flowers..he loves me and it makes me feel all gooey inside...but having a handwritten note and reading the words that he took time to write that is coming from his heart means so much more than anything material.
I am so lucky that my husband still writes me love notes. This is one of them. I love them! I keep them and I re-read them ever so often.
Just the other day while Lyla and I were getting ready in the morning she seen this envelope and asked what it was...so I sat her down on the bed....both of our hair dripping wet...and read her daddy's words to her.
I didn't skip a word..I read her the whole letter. She sat still and silent...listened to every word.
When the letter was over...she looked up at me with a smile and eyes glistening...and said, "Daddy loves you"
I said, "I know..I love him too"
Tears came to my eyes.
We might not have a million dollars
She might not get everything she asks for
We probably wont' be able to fly in a private plan to see all wonders of the world
But she knows she is loved
She knows mom and dad love each other
is a solid foundation in which she can rely on.
I bet you have never guessed that on the 14th the challenge would be to take a picture ofa heart ..
We had our class valentine party today so boy did I see alot of hearts!!
In this picture your going to have to look past the beautiful bouquet of flowers my husband sent to me ( Hee Hee... I'm still a sucker for beautiful flowers even if they do die in two weeks. Something timeless and romantic about it. ) to see the hearts on my bulletin board.
Ok the truth is that was a shameless plug to show off my flowers ...
My picture today was a gift from a student ... It's a keychain and I absolutely love it!!!
