The Beatles -- I've Just Seen a Face

The first Beatle's movie I watched was "Help". I loved the humor and I loved the songs.  This is one of the gems.  ENJOY!

Friday Confessional

It is Friday and you all know what that means?  Yep, you guessed it, time to fess up.  Come join the fun over at Aubrey's High-Heeled Love.  She host this little party every Friday.

I confess...

I love my new painting I painted last month
I am not sure where it is going as of yet.  I would love to keep it and possibly hang it in the guest room/toy room after Ethan moves out in August, however part of me would like to give it to either Ethan or Kera for Christmas since they both fell in love with it too.  If I were to do anything different at all, it would be the clouds.  I am not sure I like the way the instructor told us how to create them.  I did not listen to how he told us to do the meadow.  I like my way better using the fan brush to go back through and making the grass blades.  I am digging the mountains and the pine tree a lot!.  I also love the lake, it feels like the water is cold to me. 

I confess...

I was creative with Taj's pancakes the same day of the painting class.
Although the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fell apart,
Taj was very happy to see him on his plate.

What do you have to confess this week?

Leaving On A Jet Plane...

This morning I drove Ethan, my third oldest to the airport.  He is about to embark on a huge adventure for him.  He is going to Spain for two weeks with 19 other students.
This is so out of the ordinary for Ethan.  Ethan does not like change is comfortable with things staying the same.  He is very shy. He is a very picky eater. This is way out of his normal comfort zone and I am so proud he is actually doing this.  It is also his time flying ever!  Right now as I am typing this he is somewhere over the ocean on his way to Madrid, Spain.  Week one he will be sight seeing and then the second week he will be living with a sponsor family and going to school.  Joshua did this his Senior year as well. So far I have been fortunate where I have been able to cover at least 1/3 or a little more of the expense for each one of my three older boys and have called it good for my graduation gift to them.  They had to cover at least 1/3 of the expense on their own.  My oldest, Matthew went to Germany, Austria, and a little town in France where he performed with the high school orchestra.  Ethan has gone through so much this past year like everyone else but he is more affected than his brothers due to the fact he is still living at home and Noah has made threats to him with knives before I had to hide them and lock them in my bedroom closet.  I think it will be a nice break for the boys to be away from one another.  It will also be a nice break for Ethan not to deal with all the drama Noah creates.
I am so excited for him and cannot wait to hear about his adventures and see the pictures he took.

Mug 'O' Comfort Show & Tell

As I posted last month, I participated with one of Chaotic Goddess Swaps and the theme was Mug O Comfort, which is my second favorite swap.  I was ever so lucky to be paired with Kathleen from Fearlessly Creative Mammas.  She has a wonderful blog site she shares with her daughter.  I enjoyed checking it out and plan to follow along.  I loved getting to know Kathleen, she is very blessed to be able to travel.  She moved to China to live with her husband while he works/ed there.  Her next adventure is to move to Alaska and build a cabin there to live.  How exciting is that!   Here is my package I received from her.
I absolutely love the flannel material she gave me.  
I am going to make something creative for my Tea Party with my younger nieces.  
I am so excited!
I had a traveling coffee cup on my list to buy for our vacation this Summer.  
Now I do not have to get one, Kathleen picked out the greatest one.  I love it is dishwasher safe too!
I had a taste last night of the Chocolate Mint Hot Chocolate.  
I add a spoonful with some sugar free hot chocolate.  I loved the mint taste.
I plan on having a cup of hot peppermint tea tonight.
The Organic Candy bar, I shared with my husband.  It was so yummy!
I love the handmade bar of soap and the Tissues is always a good idea with me.
I have been so emotional the past year or so.
The card Kathleen sent is hand made and I am IN LOVE WITH IT!!!
It is so pretty I want to frame it some how.

Me thinkiths I was a very lucky gal!  Thank you Kathleen for being such a wonderful swap partner and thank you Angie and Beth for hosting another great swap.  If you want to check out what everyone received, click on the image below.
