Mothers Day Tradition!

Every year for the past 3 yrs now, We have flown kites on mothers day! My kids look forward to this and talk about it for weeks before! This makes me soooo happy! That they remember and care about a tradition!!!!!

This year we invited some friends of ours over (a neighborhood couple and their 2 girls) to fly with us! It is always so much fun to share the fun with others!!!!!!!

AH, the house I lived in ONCE....

So, yesterday was a sad day, I had to attend a funeral of a 38 yr old man I grew up with... SAD SAD! He was great friends with my older brother (who himself, passed away 11 yrs ago) and then a great friend of my younger brother. He also dated my sister for a short time... AND he was a great "DRINKING" buddy of my Dad's before my father passed away! YEP, he was a great family friend....

Anyways, his funeral was in the neighborhood that I lived in from the time I was 4 until I was almost 8! SO of course I had to drive it for old time sake... and I gotta tell ya, WOW, everything has shrunk! I mean really shrunk... it was ALL so small... even the house I lived in was A LOT smaller than I remember! Of course maybe it is all still the same size and I am the one that grew up!

I won, not once but twice!!!

I rarely win anything... but when heavenly homemakers hosted a blog give-away last week... I thought... why not......!!!
So, each day I went and signed up for about 20 drawings... and by golly, I WON 2 of them!

The first one was a $25 gift cert. to AMAZON and it came from hearth management. This a a great blog written by a christian woman! My favorite part of her blog is that she links up once a week to other great blogs!!! She also has a sense of humor, and that is what makes anyones blog great!!!!!!!

The second prize was from this wonderful blog having my cake and eating it too! What a great blog this woman has! She has some great Frugal Friday posts that are super fun to read! She also has lots of links for scrapbooking templates! WOW! Might have to look into digital scrapbooking!!!
From her I won a great TILE NECKLACE from THIS wonderful seller on ETSY! I had never seen her shop before and fell in love!!! HERE is the necklace I will be getting!!! AH, I can't wait!

I guess sometimes you really do win things!
