Stefanie and I have been texting about helping each other get back into the blogging habit. I seem to have gotten into a "only in November" rut and I really miss this community. So we are considering blogging regularly in June! This is a little preview for you, (really for me to see if I could even remember how to write a paragraph, upload a photo, publish then read all my mistakes and shrug and never bother to fix them).
Tobin came home from school a few Fridays ago, all excited to give me my Mother's Day present. I told him that I really wanted to wait until Sunday to open it but he, being just like his father, could. not. wait. till. Sunday. So to alleviate this 8 year old's suffering, I opened my gift. Check it out. . .
I'll get closer . . .
and closer. . .
I just love this folk art tree. I really, really love it. I just hung it up and I'm am telling you, if the house were on fire, I would grab my kids and this plate. and my Bible, and my quilt my grandma made me, and hard drive and my wedding album, and my box of New Kid on The Block memorabilia and fan club letter of authenticity. But for sure the children and my tree plate.
