It's 12:30 pm and everything is done for the party and I'm so happy with how everything has turned out. Time sure has flown by. Seems like yesterday day I was wrestling with Brooke on the dining room floor over her wearing an outfit to preschool that she just had to have and then didn't want to wear. Mom won that battle let me tell you. They say pick your battles, well that was one that I was gonna win. LOL This picture was taken by my brother-in-law and it was really strange how it turned out with her being the only in focus part of the pic. I just reminds me of how time has flown by, but now Brooke is on to a whole new time of her life. One that mom is not too sure mom's ready for, but I know it's time. We are so proud of her accomplishments and the dependent and fine young women she's become. I guess that's the whole point in this kid raising thing, isn't it? She sent me a private message after I posted the turtle cake picture, which I'm sure she won't mind me sharing here. This is what it said.
WOW mom its WOW. It's definitely turtley enough for the turtle club. Thank u i love you
Talk about melt a mom's heart. As you parents know you have different sorts of relationships with your kids, because each child is different, but you always love them the same. Brookie has always been my "little buddy". So little buddy, mommy loves you with all my heart and prays for nothing, but the best for you. Big, big hugs to you.
And to still make this a "crafty post" here is a picture of one of the centerpieces we are using for the tables today. Thanks to my sister Carin for all her help this week being my personal assissant. I'll have more to share after it's all done and yes even some stamping.
Hugs and Blessings,
