It's the most wonderful time of the year!

Yep-It's that time of year again!

Back to school time!
Oh yea-my most favorite day of the year. Forget christmas, this is way better!
2 out of 3 go all day, and 4 she will go for 3 hours a day, 2 days a week!
Yes-total bliss! NO children to bug me while I thrift!
The only bad thing-I have to wait until the 2nd until 4 goes to school.
Is it weird that I call my children by numbers?
I know that my cousin thinks that I am psycho.
Thats ok though-I really only care what total strangers think about me!
No, not really. I care what she thinks. Really-I do.
I love ya Lor! You know I do!
So-here are some pics from the most lovely day ever!
Enjoy!


pS-Maybe tomorrow-I will be able to get something constructive done-you know like spray painting!
All a matter of priorities people, all a matter of priorities!
p.p.S-Yep-I made the pencil cake. I am that good! I know that you all want to be my friend.

I used to love that Staples commercial where they played that song for back to school. It was awesome. Have fun being kid-free.

Ahhh, they look so cute. I know what you mean. I was busier yesterday with them not here than I am when they are here. You are totally the fun mommy making the cake and celebrating back to school with them. I planned on doing something fun, but time got away from me. Rush, rush, rush seems like is the way it usually is.

cute girls & super cute cake! It is worth celebrating with a cake!

Happy thrifting!

Darlene said...

Oooooo they are all so cute!!! Cute, cute cake!! Have a great time thrifting!!!

Maggie said...

I feel like a terrible mom! You make a pencil cake and mine get school supplies and to pick what goes in their lunch. I will not show them this post for fear they will expect more! Well, I did do the kiss in the palm and folded her hand to have it with her all day. Hope that counts for something.
Love your creativity and have enjoyed your blg.
Blessings,
Maggie

My kids went back to school on July 28th! We live n California and our kids (locally) are on what is called "modified traditional" schedule. They get out of school the very end of May. We also have to wear uniforms (blue,yellow,pink,hunter,burgandy polos and jeans or khaki pants) Your daughter's hair cuts are adorable, I need to try and get my 7 year old to let me cut hers!

Lori said...

Of course you don't care what I think but I give my opinions anyway! Cute pics and way to go on the cake! And I spray painted something yesterday - Jealous?
