Thank you all for the nice comments you left Macy on her layouts!! They really made her day!! She said "I guess I'm really good!" She told me that she's a better scrapper than me! LOL
She's getting really good at her reading and writing!! It's amazing what kindergartners learn! I guess the days of naps and watching chicks in an incubator are over, huh? That's what I did in kindergarten!! I can still remember everything about my kindergarten room, from where the bathroom was, to where we napped, and where the incubator sat!!
Anyway, she wrote this story while Jack was taking his bath tonight. The first page is the title of the book and the second is the story.
Pretty good for a 5 1/2 year old!! She asked for no help at all!!! I'm a proud mama!!
The other exciting news around here is that our kitchen is finally underway!!! The cabinet guy took his last measurements last night and I picked out the grout color for our floor. We went with glazed porcelain tiles instead of ceramic. The check is written, everything is ordered, he headed back to his shop to begin work on our custom pantry cabinets!! Installation will probably begin in about 3-4 weeks! Woohoo!!! Now we need to work on getting some wallpaper down, fixing the ceiling and painting! We'll also be ripping out the old ceramic tiles ourselves. Here is what our choices are. I'm fairly certain this will be the wall color. I may get a few different quarts of colors to test out first though!
Haven't done a ton of scrapping. I am starting to get a little mojo back, so that is nice! I used an empty Maya Road tin to make this candy tin. I got the idea of wrapping the Hershey's Nuggets from my very talented friend, Mary!!
That's it for now!! Thanks for reading!!
