It's a rainy day!

Today it's warm and rainy so my hubby is out buying his 10th lawnmower in 8 years. He is so rough with lawnmowers. I'm hoping this one will last awhile. I think all the men in his family have lawnmower issues. His brother just killed their lawnmower, his Dad just bought a new and they all have one thing in common: they will run over anything and everything in their mowing paths. Tony has taken out trees with his lawnmower. I shouldn't complain too much, I don't have to cut the grass. I think he's scared I will break the lawnmower.

The girls and I are having a field day with our new BIA (Bind it All). They were making notebooks and books all weekend. Last night we made my hubby a notebook and he didn't like it too much. He's a huge Ohio State fan and he didn't care for his new Michigan notebook.

The girls and I made a little notebook for my MIL as well. Her is the one with the horse on it. It turned out really cute. My skittle loving daughters love putting skittles on every project and everything we make. So my MIL notebook does have skittles in the lower corner. Sunday we took a whole bunch of clear skittles and dyed them different colors. Gigi and Lexi loves getting their fingers dirty doing art stuff. They literally had blue and purple fingers by the time we were done.

This weekend every time I sent them to bed they would come down stairs and beg to stay up late and play. Well, we would curl up on the couch and watch movies. Yes, we are still watching a lot of Transformers. Of course as soon as they hit couch they would be asleep. Tony was closing the restaurant, so when he gets home I would get up and greet him. Once I moved from the couch this is how Lexi was sleeping. I don't think it looks very comfortable but she was sleeping good.

Yesterday we enjoyed a lovely spring day. It was warm and gorgeous. We celebrated this day by playing outside. I love watching the girls use their imagination. We were explorers running through the yard running from hippos, penguins, and the British. They were also drawing on the driveway with their chalk. They were just enjoying every second of being outside.

Lastly I'm leaving you all with some new LOs. I made these this weekend. I hope you enjoy them. The first one is just the girls doing art stuff. The second for My Moments group, this was week 4's LO.

This Saturday is the All Moments Remembered online crop please check it out, you must register for the MB before hand. The crops are always a lot of fun and full of great challenges and prizes.
Have a great day!!
