But all in all it turned out pretty cute and she took it into school for the decorating committee.
Sam's Noggin I had heard a lot about Scentsy, but have not seen their products in person yet. So I was tickled when I received this package from Vanessa who is a consultant for Scentsy.
Inside was the most adorable little cupcake warmer with the scent I had chosen lilacs and violets which smells so wonderful!
Thank you so much Sam and Vanessa for this wonderful giveaway gift!! :-)
Hayley and I did a lot shopping together this weekend, which is always a great day out together. :-) I'll treasure it as much as I can because I know the day will come when she doesn't think it's "cool" to hang out with mommy anymore.
We are still working on the patio and backyard. Elvis was enjoying sunning himself and watching through the door! LOL
Always evidence of Jerry's work, where's there's a coffee cup he is never far behind! LOL
Kathleen was greatly enjoying the sand pile....
Hmmmm water seemed like a good addition, lol
Of and another pair of clothing was needed as well... LOL
These are the moments I so remember and treasure :-)
Jerry also got the basketball hoop set up in a temporary spot for them to play a few games.
We saw that sneaky Blue Heron flying by, trying to scope out our fish pond again....
Kathleen got all cleaned up and we put her flower clips in her hair because we were going out to friend's house Saturday evening.
Hayley was all dressed up and ready to go too.
Today after getting home from shopping with Hayley, Jerry and Kathleen had picked me some lovely lilacs from our tree for the table. They smell so amazing! What a great feature to our dinner table. It also reminded me of a dear elderly neighbor we had where we used to live. Her name was Gladys and her yard was so amazing with all the beautiful flowers and trees, etc. She would always come by and bring me a big bouquet of lilacs because she knew how much I liked them. Such a sweet and kind lady, she had lived a good long life, even beat the odds of breast cancer and had so many stories to tell. She just adored Hayley as a toddler. Gladys has since passed on, but she still is in my thoughts and especially today seeing that big bouquet on the table just brought a smile to my face.
Hope you all had a truly lovely weekend with your family and/or friends. :-)
