131st Fashionable Fridays - Christmas Sunday

This is what I wore to church on the Sunday before Christmas.

Skirt - clothing swap
Jacket - SexyModest Boutique blow out sale - --- only $10
Black Top - DownEast
Earrings also houndstooth B&W

Since my hair was curled, I decided to try and curl my daughter's hair for the first time. She loved it! She couldn't stop looking at herself in the mirror. I love it! She's also wearing my tiara from my wedding.

Here she is in the same dress last year. Good thing for buying thing bigger. I'm sure she'll wear this dress for Valentine's too =)

Valentine's - Princess and Super Hero Suckers

Last year for Valentine's Day, I bought these bows and bottlecap necklaces for $1 each from Little Bit's Hairbows. She is doing the special again this year until February 1st. She also does Easter Basket sets.

Then I saw these SuperHero suckers from Keeping it Simple so I got creative.

I made the SuperHero suckers using my Silhoeutte- but only sticking to the ones that actually have capes =)

Then for the girls, I clipped their bow to their sucker for "Princess/Diva" Suckers  for the girls

I stuck them all in a small box with holes made with my Crop-a-Dile.

With the superhero suckers for friends, I added the super hero bottle cap necklaces. =)

For his teacher, I followed Keeping it Simple's example and made Hershey Kiss Roses. Her use of the pencil worked so much better than another tutorial I tried to follow about 3 years ago. I added a paper wrap to make it even prettier.

Since his preschool teacher also does gymnastics in her curriculum, I wrote this poem.

"Roses are Red
Violets are Blue

You're a great teacher
and awesome at gymnastics too!"

His teacher is pregnant this year, and she can still do cartwheels weeks before she's due!

94th Mommy Mondays - You're a better mom than you know.

This reminds me of the Dove Real Beauty Sketches video, "You're more beautiful than you really know."
You're a better mom than you know. I need to start asking my kids more if I'm doing a good job or what do they like that I do, instead of seeking approval from the world around me.

Saw the video here first:
