Hello Spring Break


Today is the first day of Spring Break. 

And while having all five of my amazingly fantastic and funny children home all day can be down-right fall-asleep-while-folding-laundry exhausting, and I can erupt into a steaming twitchy maniac at the drop of the third full cup of juice, it is also great and fabulous.

I actually love having all my children home together.  


Now, don't look at me like that!

My kids have already done several jobs this morning to earn their movie and game time.

Pish, I also didn't let the boys eat candy for breakfast when they begged. So there.

However the question reminded me I had some chocolate stashed away in my church bag.... Sure it was only 9am but dang-it-all, they were sooooo yummy!

Eh hem.... 

Besides, it's still about 20 degrees outside. I'm looking forward to the warmer weather coming later this week so they can run wild at free at the park!

And I'm wearing flip flops all week.

Boo-yah!

Anyhow, while my kids have been good sports so far about doing chores, I really need to do some of my own.



Now now, let a girl explain herself!


A couple weeks ago I posted pictures of a some fabric scarves I had made and put them up for sale onto a craft website.


Little did I know that it would result in 42 more orders.

Yeeowza!

Sure it's awesome! But with that many to make, I moved my craft station temporarily upstairs so I could keep an eye on everything while making them.

So our kitchen has looked like an awesome disaster for over a week now.

It's driving Hubby to drink.... lots of chocolate milk.

He's been a surprisingly good sport about it, though he is quite ready for our kitchen to be a kitchen again. 

And despite my best intentions to have everything upstairs so I could keep track of the kids, it took Jacob and Alayna less than ten minutes to destroy the downstairs.


The best laid plans... HA!
