Did I Call Them Sweet the Other Day? kids...did I rave about their sweetness?

I may have jinxed myself because the last few days...whew! Life in this house has been full of if/thens, you lose, no more, I don't like...And lots of fighting and arguing between my kiddos!

I actually had one of those embarrassing nights where we took them for dinner at Friendly's and well, it didn't go so well. Most times they are polite and well-mannered. This night, not so much and I thought...I am so embarrassed.

It is our fault when it happens.

They were too tired, it was late, we had a busy week. I still expect them to act a certain way though. However, they are children. I should have had enough sense to leave the restaurant and call it a day...

maybe it was the ice cream sundae at the end that kept me hanging on!

I guess that is how it goes when you are a parent. Its a cycle, it goes up and down. What is bad will be good again and vice versa! There are days of fun and success and others, not so much!

I think this layout will serve as a good reminder to me. To hold on to those better days. To remember that Nathan and Ella love each other and this family. Most days we are building great memories!

Supplies: 365 Degrees Collection by Pink Paislee (Paper, Borderline Stickers, Punch-outs, Chipboard Alphabet, Stamp, Cork Buttons), Small Alphabet: Expressions Alphabet

Here they are...the two terrors across all four seasons! The white paper in this collection has a faint circle that you can see in person. I simply added hand-stitching around it to frame the photos! I adore the Lifetime stamp and it really drove the theme of this layout! The rest scrapped itself really!

Off to start the weekend. Let's hope it goes better
or I'll be having yet another hot fudge sundae to take the edge off!


  1. I love this page with the black and white pictures and the design!

  2. Oh yes.. kiddos... I'm not a mama but I work at a childcare center and understand those ups and downs. Some of our sweetest have their naughty days!! Thankfully, you created a BEAUTY of a layout to treasure those mostly sweet days! ;)

  6. We did that the other evening, taking the boys to dinner and it was such a disaster...Gavin had no nap that day and I was ready to crawl under the table.....fighting, crying, throwing and I had really had enough!!!! Make mental not do this again when they are tired!!!
