This Girl

This girl drives me crazy, makes me smile, gives fabulous kisses and hugs, can (and seems to on an almost daily basis) throw a doozy of a temper tantrum, loves to dance and swim, would sleep in my bed every night if I let her, plays well by herself, is as stubborn as her mom, is absolutely adorable, can more than hold her own against her siblings ( Sareny says she likes to kick), is usually good at sharing, and we love her more than anything in the world.

What would we do without our sweet Finley Lynn? She looks so tiny in this picture.

I know it's hard to believe, but this girl does try my patience. We had a bit of a difficult day today, but when I see her sweet little smile and dimple, my heart sure melts. I love my little girl so.

Letter Blocks

The week before school got out, I got together with a few friends for a couple of craft days before all the kids got out of school. The first day we were at my house and we made tons of cute hair things. My friend Monica brought all the supplies and taught us how to make burnt flower bows. And by tons, I mean that I made about 25 of them. Then a couple days later, we all met at Monica's house and made letter blocks that spell our last names. She has a vinyl machine and was really nice to share all of her supplies. I thought my letters turned out really cute.

If you were wondering what a burnt flower is, this picture shows a closeup of one. I made a purple and green one to match my living room and used it instead of an "a." I realize it looks more like an "o," but I wanted it positioned here so I didn't care. :)
