The 4th and more:)

This is always one of the busiest few days for us! Corrina's birthday is the 3rd and this year she turned 13!!!She has wanted a cell phone for a couple of years, I have always said she was too young and this year I still said that and surprised her with a phone:) She had no idea and she almost cried. It was really great!Matt said the night before, "can you believe we are buying our kids cell phones and make-up?". Time really goes by fast!Since Corrina is going to celebrate her birthday with her friends this weekend instead we went to my dad's for a BBQ and fireworks! Boys LOVe fireworks!

On the 4th we had another BBQ to go to at my mom's house!Once again Carmen took almost all the pictures so she is not in any of them and she hates having her picture taken...........gee, I wonder where she gets that from:/

I have soooo busy sewing and getting ready for the big surprise! Thought I would show you what I am working on:)These are all ornaments and some for the NEW banners I will be doing! I have been working on these for a couple of months. There are about 250 here!!!!

Once I am done stuffing all those ornaments this will be over flowing with them!! These are Halloween ornaments! Something new that will be added to the shop this year!

These little guys are for all the owl banners I have lined up to make! There is layer of owls underneath these hoots! And lastly, I thought I would share what I love about these owl ornaments!

LOVE ribbon!! Anyways hope everyone has a lovely day!!
