A Birthday, A Funny, An Owie, And Inspiration...WHEW!

Ok- so like the title said... a lot to talk about. First off- It was my oldest daughters bday this past Thursday. She turned 6! I'm still in shock that i have a 6 yr old. so wierd. But the day was great, she had cupcakes in her class and she got a few gifts from friends. She chose to go to burger King for dinner (gag me) in which the kids played and were the only ones who ate food. lol then it was home for presents and cake. SO here are the highlight pics from her "party". Typical Hailey faces, that's for sure! :) And the cake she chose and the cutest shoes in the world given to her by gramma- Thanks gramma!!

Now here's the funny: This is the conversation that happened between me and my son last night.

Me: Kayleb, what's wrong?
Kayleb: (sniffling with tears) I'm sad.
Me: Well what happened?
Kayleb: I said I'm sad.
Me: Well, you have to tell me why you're so sad.
Kayleb: (tears still coming) Because.
Me: (laughing) Kayleb... it's hard for me to help you if I don't know what happened. Did you get hurt? Did something happen?
Kayleb: Yah.
Me: Well what happened then? You're just sad?
Kayleb: Yah.
Me: (laughing still) Well then tell me why you're sad.
Kayleb: Because I have feelings.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA- it was so stinkin hilarious. And of course once i started laughing, he didn't understand and just got more upset. It was just so cute. I ran and took a picture so I could scrap this. Here's the result of his "feelings". I tried to get the right angle so you could see his tears, but the lighting was aweful. So just pretend like you can see them- cause they are REALLY there. lol

Then there came the OWIE. Literally. I swear, with how many times my kids run into things and hit their heads or shins- people must think we abuse them or something! (which we totally don't by the So Kayleb was jumping on my couch on Saturday. (big no no in my house) Well, Mia of course has to copy every little thing he does and started jumping too. Although she lost her balance and bounced right into the arm of the couch. This is what it left.... (the first picture isn't a good angle, but you can see the MASSIVE bump on her head right between her eyes the best) Yah..... it was a painful one- luckily it's gone down and it's only a bruise now.

And finally the inspiration:
I was able to sit on saturday and put this little thing together. I LOVE LOVE LOVE how this turned out. Don't ask me what I'll use it for, probably a gift to someone, but it's still adorable. It's called a Magic Box. And my dear friend Leah is the entire inspiration for them. Once the lid is taken off the box, it opens up to reveal the other 4 boxes. It actually took me longer to decorate the thing than it did to actually put it together. And this is using the Ba Ba Black Sheep line from Piggy Tales. Everything excpet for the Flowers, brad, and stamp is from Piggy Tales. What do you think? :)

Your daughter totally doesn't look old enough to be 6! happy birthday to her and yes, those shoes are adorable! The convo with Kayleb was so precious! YIKES on the head bump! I totally know what that's like! It's almost rare when a kid in the house DOESN'T have bumps and bruises! And how you rocked that magic box setup! Great job!!

Oh you are in for it for sure!! Kids are so creative in the ways they express their "feelings" and find ways to get hurt. OUCH!! Beautiful project by the way. :)

Gotta love kids! The pictures of Hailey crack me up because she has the exact same facial expressions from when she was only 6 months old! Apparently 5 1/2 years made no difference other than some hair! Too cute!

Such a cute box! I really should get brave and try one. I got my kits yesterday and they're great! Thanks again. Your kids are so adorable. I can't wait to have conversations about feelings with my daughter, I'm sure it will be coming soon (she's 2).
