Happy Birthday...

to my Mom! Today is her birthday! We will be having a celebratory lunch. Our family usually gets together for birthdays. Which isn't difficult, we have a little family! My uncle was delighted when Morgan and I got married as he now had a male comrade to balance out the estrogen a bit! And with Owen that just helps even more!

My mom requested a cube like the ones I made for my sister and Morgan. Here are the layouts I did for hers.





I had planned to buy two cubes so I could do one for myself but Wal Mart only had one when I went to get them! So I will have to check for one the next time I'm there.

On a sad note, Dick Blick is no longer carrying the little easels that I love so much. Supposedly the company that makes them is not making them any more. That's just dumb. I had wanted to make a little something for The Girls for a back to school gift and the easel was part of it. When I went to get them they were all gone and the kid talked to the manager who told him they were not being made anymore. I know it's a silly thing to be all bummed out about but I just love those little easels!

And lastly, thank you to everyone who commented on my post the other day about mac & cheese. Some of you brought up very good points. And thank you for the ideas as to how to jazz up mac & cheese! Owen used to eat whatever we put in front of him. And now he's becoming more selective. He likes pasta. And the other day he was totally into carrots. Which he wasn't a couple weeks ago. I guess I just have to remember that he IS a little PERSON. And people are quirky. Heck, with me as his mama if the only thing he's quirky about is food, then it will be a miracle!
