And now, a word from our sponsor

Hey there!  Well, it's almost time for Spring Break!  And to make it even better, it actually FEELS like Spring now. In fact, it could ALMOST feel like early Summer...but wouldn't that be considered Spring? I dunno...I'm just rambling :-).

Anyway, now that Winter seems to be gone for good now, I thought I'd share this picture that I took of Jayla the last time it "snowed".  Ok, that and I forgot that I took it and just stumbled upon it :-).  

School let out early (again) due to the inclement weather a few weeks ago. So what ELSE would a good mother like myself do when there's about to be a blizzard? I take my daughter to Michaels! DUH!! :-) We come out of the store and as we're walking to the car, I turn around and notice Jayla catching snow(flakes) on her tounge. And again, being the good mother that I am...I had my camera with me :-).

In between snowstorms and blizzards, we had a few pretty but cool days. One Sunday after church we went to Olive Garden for dinner.  Jayla was wearing one of the new dresses that her aunt gave her and just HAD to pose for a picture.  Isn't she the cutest thing? So glad I keep my camera with me most days.

Now some of you may have seen this next photo before. But a few years ago I made this layout for my mom for her birthday. This photo of my mom was actually from the June 4, 1964 issue of Jet Magazine where my mom was featured at the Jet Beauty. How cool is that?

Anyway, I receive a monthly email from an online scrapbooking magazine. Last month they were having a "Layout about Mom" contest. So I figured, what the hay, I'll enter. I submitted my layout about 4 weeks ago and simply forgot about it. I'll be darned if they didn't send me an email last night telling me that I WON!  I couldn't believe it! I immediately thought I'd won simply because I was the only one who entered, LOL. However, I'll probably never find out if that's true, lol. Not sure what the prize is for winning, I'll receive it in the mail in a few weeks. I'll let ya know.

Welp, that's about all I've got for today. Oh shoot, I forgot about the is Friday, isn't it? Here ya go...

Not that it would be out of the ordinary for me as of late, but I will probably not be posting anything for about a week or so. Me and my girls are heading to Alabama to visit my mom for Spring Break next week. SO, I hope ya'll have a wonderful Easter weekend and a great week next week. Talk to you soon.

Uhm, Dawn? Are you OK? This is two posts in, well, less than six months! ;D

I love the picture of Jayla catching snowflakes! Well, I love them both, but that is my favorite!

happy spring, dear Dawn!

Yes you are a good mother! :) I love the new pictures of your little one and your Mom was stunning! It is so cool that she was a Jet Beauty. :) Thanks for the flowers.

I can't believe how tall Jayla is getting....she's reminding me more and more of your oldest daughter.
