Well Today Totally Sucked!

Things were off to a pretty decent start got a few things done around the house.

Picked up children for school and while we were at my visiting my Parent's house my Father slipped and fell while getting out of the shower! Well let's just say that even down stairs a few choice words were said that would make Andrew Dice Clay Blush on a good day! I ran up and my Mother Followed as fast as she could with her knees the way that they are.

He was sprawled on the floor and was unable to use his left arm at all.

Suspecting a dislocation I left the Kids with Mom, and drove Dad to the ER.

Not a dislocation........ but, a spiral fracture in his Humerus in three places!

Ah hell this is really going to be a nightmare! The man barely sleeps as it is and only in his ideal conditions! He has not been well the past years and ironically he was just starting to feel a little better.

Well, this is going to be interesting!

Thinking about Design ! Boxed Muffins and a Birthday!

I am in full Valentine's mode I joined an intense Love ATC swap 20 partners !!!!!(piccys later)
And I got inspiration today from the Valentine's edition of Pottery Barn Kids really cute Love blocks but not sure if I am going to make them out of paper as they did or if I shall use wood? Stay tuned.......

I feel really old my Baby Just turned 10! This week has been interesting to say the least.
We went Skating which is really scary!
I cannot believe I used to be able to skate backwards and do jumps etc. I now consider myself lucky to stay upright!
And then we went out to eat she received a alarm clock/Charger /Speaker unit for her phone and the first day of school she was wakened by said unit ,got up, dressed and was in an unusually agreeable mood...weird!

Our school has adopted a new policy regarding Birthday/Party Treats that are sent in.
They would like them to be more on the healthy side.

I sent in Blueberry Muffins.

I had three Mother's come up to me after school asking for the Recipe apparently they were a hit!

With slight hesitation in giving out my precious family recipe I am now going to share it with you too.....

Wait for it........

I cannot believe I am about to reveal this treasured family recipe!

Are you ready for the big reveal???






******Duncan Hines Blueberry Streusal Muffins!!!******
Tada! I am a baking genius!
No applause necessary! I know I have mad skills! :)

There now you have it. I guess you may now do with this information what you will! :)

I have two girls age 5 and 10. So all things girly are constantly in play here.

So much so that when we went to select our dog my Husband insisted on a male! Too Funny!
Any way, Santa brought a few presents regarding designing clothing,we have been busy! I will share those items also as we finish them!

I have to go and do my very favorite thing now, Laundry (extreme sarcasm)!
Have a great Night!

Christmas was a Complete Success! Well Almost!

Well... I say almost as a plague has fallen upon our household! Kids had it last week and lucky me I have it this week! Husband was blessed with an actual immune system, lucky him!

Despite feeling like death had warmed over me....I some how managed to bake, wrap, hang the stockings by the chimney with care, and get a Standing Rib Roast with all of the trimmings on the table!!!

Santa did a great job this year kids have had plenty to keep themselves busy for two days now!!! Mission accomplished I will now be going to bed for a week! ( Ah well!A girl can dream)!
I hope that you have had a very Merry Christmas!
Hugs! Genevieve

Ready for School to Start!

I am so ready for school to start! Don't get me wrong I love my girls more than life itself but their constant bickering and mess making has me at my wits end!!!
This is the first Full time year for Tori-Kate she attended half day Pre-K last year. This will be the first in nine years that I will not have a child at home during the day!

I have fantasies about Bon Bons, magazine reading and unlimited artistic free time.

But the cruel reality is that I will be scrubbing toliets,studying, pet care,grocery shopping etc. most of you know what I mean the never ending list of thing to do at home not to mention PTO,Soccer ,Cheerleading and so on and so forth!

And the other cruel reality is that as soon as school starts I will be missing my babies like crazy!

Time to go and clean and do my very favorite thing... Laundry!
