Phew....that was close...

Both of us almost didn't make it until nap time...moms of toddlers, I know you feel my pain...it's not that he has been naughty but that there has just been so much of him....more than once this morning I would look at the clock and say...."oh dear Lord...there are still 2 hours 23 minutes and at least 5 seconds until nap time"...
Doug was a good honey last night and took me out for a latte...and bought me a new Starbucks mug. :) Instant smile on my face. I LOVE Starbucks mugs and I have a nice collection to prove it. :) Always room for one more....Even though it is rainy and gloomy here , I am making my own sunshine...In the form of this darling and wonderful care package that I got in the mail from one of my best good friends. :) She knows how to make a girl feel loved. :) Look at all that goodness...custom collected just for me. Those who know me know that my love language is gifts...this definitely made me feel loved. :) Thanks sweet friend!! These little guys also arrived today. :) My "March" order from Tiddlywinks. There is one more in the bunch but Moses is already napping with him. :) These little critters will make three little kiddlets very happy on Easter. :) If you haven't been shopping at Tiddlywinks you simply must...you will never buy a store bought stuffie ever again...I promise. This sweet little bird was in with my package.....polka dots and birds...two of my favorite things. :) I also made some sunshiney cards...this one is my favorite. :)

Just a couple of cute shots of Moses I got today...not much light with all the rain but these I still like. How cute is this kid?!
A couple of thoughts...ok for like over two years now I have been in "Pampers points purgatory"....collecting those points(that come on packages of dipes and wipes) like crazy and saving up for something to show for all of the diapers I have bought for this kid...I am like two seconds away from having enough for 200 free prints from Snapfish so if you have Pampers and you are not in purgatory...I know someone who would like them.......I'm just saying.

A fun thing...I was thinking of organizing a Spring goodie swap with anyone who might want to participate...just something fun where we swap names and each of us send one person a box of goodies for Spring...candy, crafty things, fun things, sweet things, things you make,etc...if you would be interested in participating please let me know...you don't have to have a blog or anything like that...just be willing to put some love in a box and ship it to someone...we would each have one name and could come up with a reasonable $ to spend. I would love to have each of you participate...just leave me a comment or send me an email. :)
This is what our sky looks like today...it's not a black and white photo. :(
Pin It!

I'm in for the gift swap. LOVE that idea. I'm not crafty like you and your other friends, but I'll do my best to make someone smile. =-)

I can totally relate to the naps. Oh...I've counted the seconds on many days.

LOVE the picture of Moses by the window. Totally postcard worthy.

Hoping for lots of bright sun to come your way. Did your flowers bloom yet?

Sorry, no Pampers here. Just the Costco brand ones. =-) Points for buying diapers, though? Got to look into that.

Many hugs to you, sweet friend.

xoxoxoxo hivers

I was laughing through your blog! First, the stuffed animals are c-u-t-e! Second, I collect those pampers points too! And I'm glad you have a goal with your points- that's funny! Hmmm....what I am saving for??:0)

hello my good friend who I have never met...:) I am in for the swap! Sounds good to me. I love mail..I mean, really like mail, like I go out in my PJs in the snow to get mail. Anyway, sounds good and I love the treats you got! Yeah! Sweet Moses...he is cute. I tried finger painting with the kids today. Oh boy. Pictures of that to come later. :)

Oh, those stinky points! I collected them too and then spent a million minutes inputing the excessively long codes! Gotta use my free prints before they expire... I am so in on the swap! Sounds fun to spread springtime sunshine. Yay!
