I actually really like the way it turned out and Madison loves it. If I can whip up a few more things, I think I can officially say I’ve decorated for Valentine’s Day.
Somewhat Simple, Fireflies and Jellybeans, Finding Fabulous,
Fingerprints on the Fridge, Kojo Designs, The Shabby Nest

Madison had a couple of funny moments this week.
1. She decided that she "loves chicken salad so much she could eat miles of it."
2. She wanted to know why one of our blankets was falling apart. I told her daddy had bought that blanket a long time ago and sometimes things start falling apart. She said, "No, you don't buy blankets, you make them!" Almost every other blanket in our house is homemade. She had no idea that blankets could be purchased!

It’s been raining all morning and the girls have been playing with their new play kitchen making cupcakes and soup. It kept them busy long enough for me to finish a layout I started earlier this week. I found this picture of Madison taken almost three years ago. She loved this dog so much, she would walk him everyday. I love her little overalls and her little wave.

I started Project Life again this year. It will be my third album and I am still in love with it! I rarely do any traditional scrapbooking anymore, because this kit is so awesome! Project Life forces me to write things down as they happen and I immediately slip it into a slot for the week. If I wasn’t in the habit of doing so, I would have missed this funny conversation:
Madison and Sidney both in their beds about 6:00 in the morning.
Sidney: Massa! What are you doing?
Madison: Sidney, get Barney and go back to sleep!
Sidney: But I went poo poo! I have stinky butt!
I still laugh every time I think about it.

So my first finished project of the year is a blanket I started five years ago. Yes, five years ago. I was pregnant with Madison and when I got too big to sit on the floor and stitch everything together, I put it in a bag and it sat in my closet until we moved. Well, we moved three more times after that and it just kept getting transferred from one closet to the next.
Another resolution this year is to actually finish all my half started projects and using up supplies that I already have. So, that's where this blanket comes in. I picked it up again a week before Christmas hoping to finish it in time to wrap up in it while we were opening presents, but it didn't happen. However, it's done and that's all that matters.
