So I forgot to share what I made for Christmas for both our parents and my sister. I saw these at my craft show I went to and I lost the ladies information who had something like this so I figured why not make them. They were a pain though, because if you didn't get that vinyl straight the first time well too bad, I tried taking it off and just about wrecked it. But other than that they were super easy. I ordered the vinyl off etsy, and the frames I bought. This one is ours. I did the parent's one with a blowing dandelion across the top by the name and my sister's is the same as mine. I just got mine made and up and I wasn't sure if i'd like it but I love it! It's way cuter than a month by month calendar. My goal is to redo the whole wall and make it into an organizing area for bills, and my chalk board and this. So i'll show ya the finished product when i'm done.
So since we've been sick for the past week, we have all been doped up on drugs. We haven't been super sick but enough to be annoying. Well Kyla wouldn't take her medicine for a few days so I finally convinced her to and it was children's cold and flu tylenol and I gave it to her before their bath. She has cereal every single night before bed, so she was eating it and watching some tv at the same time. I was on the phone so I wasn't paying attention. I then finally looked and saw her passed out on the chair like this.
Seriously. Those are some strong meds. How do you even stay asleep like that?
We we're all finally getting better, but last night Dustin walked in the door from work at 9:00 and he's like "hey hun", I went to talk and nothing came out. I lost my voice. It was fine when I put Kyla to bed at 7:30 and by 9pm it was gone. I had a sore throat during the day and it was gradually getting worse but I was sick of being sick so I ignored it thinking it'll go away. Well today I have no voice, it's definitely challenging trying to "mother" these 3 girls with no voice. I am doing a lot of clapping and snapping my fingers, and it does not work. Then again neither does talking...
I'm counting down to next weekend for Dustin's 4 days off. Then he goes back for 24 days! 24!! Until 9pm EVERY NIGHT. crappy. deal. They had a fire at the plant so he is working on the maintenance for it, so I can't complain since because it's a lot of overtime and he is going to school in April and we need to save as much as we can but it can still suck!
I made a list of little projects I want to do to keep me occupied. I am taking a break from my business if you didn't know and it's for me and my family and I am really enjoying it so I want to work on some fun stuff for me (or my kids) that i've been wanting to do for a while. I'm teaching this Sunday so I won't get to start anything until next week because every free minute i'm working on my lesson. I'm excited for it, it's on 'our heavenly family', and I really love studying this lesson.
Well I better go figure out what to make for dinner, and it's hard to type with two babies on my lap. I guess my time is up.
