The title of this LO pretty much captures the moment! There are no instructions needed when a 2 year old paints!! Mommy's lucky if SHE's not covered head to toe in paint by the time the experience is over! But he loves it, so what can I say?

Since I've had a child, I pretty much have no photos of myself and sadly the ones I do have are of me looking somewhat haggard - lol! I guess having a two year old will do that to a stay at home mom! Amazingly, I had a recent (year ago) photo that was taken by a family friend. Other than that I'm pretty much going back quite a few years - so sad! There's a challenge at GS where you have to use FIVE photos of yourself - I doubt I'll be accomplishing that task! Anyways, here is a lovely kit that is a part of a grab bag by ViolaMoni. I love her art journaling style kits, now if only I could master that amazing style of scrap. The grunged up papers are a favorite of mine!

As some may know, I had a miscarriage about a month ago and actually found out the day before my son's 2nd birthday. I had an inkling that this was the case several days before hand and our small birthday plans for our little boy had already been canceled. How sad for my little guy!! With everything that had been going on around the home, his birthday turned into a VERY long celebration!! He didn't get a birthday cake with candles (which makes me sad but he won't remember so I shouldn't feel too bad) but I made sure he had a special sweet treat - a red velvet cupcake with cream cheese frosting! This was a SUPER special treat for our little one because he is not supposed to have wheat and almost never has candy or goodies like this!! It was so funny because as he finished it off you could see that the sweetness was just a bit too much for him!

It's May here in Anchorage, Alaska and yes there is still snow!! We are still waiting for Spring! Thankfully, the sun is nice and warm and most days we can go outside with just a long sleeve shirt or a sweatshirt and be alright until the freezing wind picks up!
