Mean Mama

As I write this, I'm doing the "mean mama" thing with Jake. Dont worry people..it's not as serious as it sounds! You see, Jacob is a Mama's boy (as was Jordan), and he has gotten to the point that he doesn't want to sleep unless I'm holding him (or feeding him..ouch!) And it's just time for me to put a stop to it. Which means putting him down in his crib, and walking away. It kills me, I hate it, makes me feel like a mean mama. I did this with Jordan too. The first night, he screamed for 3 hours straight! The second night, for probly 2 hours. The third night, about 30 minutes. And from then on, he was just fine all by himself. So, I know it's gonna be ok eventually. Right now it just sucks. Sorry Jake.

Love Bugs

I know it was like a week ago,
But I'm a slacker.
And I totally flaked on posting my Valentines Project.
So, regardless of it's tardiness.
Here it is....
I knew I wanted to get the kids goodie bags for their Valentines Day loot.
And I found some super-cute ones at Wal-mart...but they were $10 a piece!
So, I made these treat bags for my little love bugs!
Jordan's "Woo-woo"
he began his life as 2 hearts cut from felt (the dog, not Jordan) hehe

and then the rest was just cut from felt and hot-glued
And a ribbon handle to top it all off
And Hannah's lady Bug:

Same basic concept, 2 felt heart hearts, felt shapes for features, ribbon for buggy legs,
and the good "ol glue gun

Then I added their names with fabric paint

and the goodies!

And then I hid them in the breadbox!

They loved their little bags. (Jake will get his next own next year)
And I love that they were quick, easy, cheap, and can be stored easily till next year!
Hope you enjoyed Valentines Day with your little Love bugs too!
