makin' mums



Lindsey and Sharon (the best aunts in the world) helped me put some beautiful homecoming mums together for the girls this weekend. We had a nice mum-making weekend while all the boys watched football and went out on the boat with the kids. It was so fun. My sister, Lindsey, really out-did herself on Jensen's mum.. Granted, jensen will have to go see the chiropractor first thing Saturday morning after wearing her mum all day....THAT SUCKER IS HEAVY but it was GREATLY appreciated.






Sharon did a great job on Reagan's mum.

your welcome

This is how I keep my sanity in the morning,
When it is time to pack up lunches...



We call them the

"lunch-on-the-go baskets"

It goes a little something like this:




(today, I am a little low on treats but you get the idea)



It doesn't matter if you are a 5 year old or a 10th grader, you can pack up your own healthy lunch any day of the week with these simple instructions. Because I have 5 school kids that prefer homemade lunches, it can get a little crazy.

It could help you maintain your sanity every morning too.

Your welcome :O)
