Excited and Tired

Tonight (or should I say this morning) I am working on kits for the Purple Paper Flowers website that is to go live July 1st - be on the lookout :) The kit I'm working on now will be a 4th of July kit. I just finished "The Frog Prince" kit that you can see on the right. I can't wait to see how it does on the website. I had a lot of fun using my paper piecing skills digitally. I thought they turned out pretty cute. Let me know what you think and if there's a theme of kit you'd like to see. I'd love to hear your ideas and input.

I survived last week. I think that's becoming my theme - just survive. Last Monday we started VBS at our church, and even though I wasn't working it this year, I still carpooled some children and mine over there - and that meant 2 to 3 hours in the car each day. The kids seemed to have a lot of fun though, so it was all worth it. Then after VBS on Monday, Zachary ran into a table corner and off to the ER we went again. This time it was the front of his head - between the eyebrows (thank the Lord it wasn't his eye!) and we(he) got 5 stitches. They had to strap him down and he was yelling "Mommy help me!" and all I could do was stroke his cheeks and talk to him so he knew I was there (they even had to cover his face and eyes). I had nightmares about it all that night and got no sleep! I think it traumatized me as much, if not more than him. At least for him, after it was done, he seemed to be over it - NOT MOM!!! I don't ever think I'll forget that helpless feeling! Tuesday was Kaylee's 8th birthday - so I did everything I could to make it special. We had a dinner of her choice (tortellini) and then I took her and her friend to Applebee's for dessert. She also got to open all of her presents from us and our families (mainly American Girl Doll stuff). She was very excited. The rest of the week was pretty uneventful - thank goodness. Saturday night I cropped with Amanda and a new cropper, Catherine. We had fun as always!

Tomorrow I'm having Kaylee's birthday party with her friends. We're having a tea party with her girlfriend and their American Girl Dolls, pedicures, and then we're going to the mall to play in the playplace with Samantha and Amanda's boys. I think it will be a lot of fun. Then, Wednesday, it's back to the ER to have the stitches taken out - yea fun - NOT :)

That's about all the excitement I can think of for now. I hope you are all well. Don't forget to leave a comment and let me know what you think of the new kit. I'll try to post the 4th of July kit once it's done. Take care!

'Til next time,
