Kira and baby Giraffe sitting next to each other.

Kira asked if little G can be a part of Crafty Spices, and that's where the adventure began. While totally unexpected, and after a long conversation especially with Kira, Crafty Spices is considering the possibility of adopting a mascot. To your left you may see baby Giraffe or little G as we gracefully call her.

Kaylee with her baby Minnie ears at her first Birthday.

As we were children a year seem to take forever, we would wait and wait, and wait from one birthday to another birthday until it would finally arrive. Now days I can't really believe how fast a year goes by, it seems it was just yesterday our baby Kaylee was born, and here I am writing about her First Birthday Celebration.

Kaylee and me

I can't believe it's been a year since our little girl was born. Come to think about it so much has happened since then, but one thing we are happy leaving about 1200 miles from where she was born, her big sister is now in school and smarter than ever and we keep trying to live one day at a time.

Happy birthday little girl, you are one of the best things that has happened to us, you have brought to us so much joy, your fast paced, happy face and high pitch voice keeps us moving. We Love you so much Kaylee. Kira is telling me to write that she loves you too.

Good habits start at home

It's never to early to encourage good habits and good manners.

While some may think that a baby is to little to practice good manners, the reality is that they start learning way earlier than what we think. If we practice good manners around them and even making emphasis so that they can capture the essence of what you are trying to tell them they start getting it and learning at a very early age.

The Clock is ticking

So I wonder how come my days come to an end without me even realizing it.

Lately it seems that not one day goes by that I don't end up looking at the clock to find out that it's 10 or 11:00 PM to say the least, I said what? yes…

How come the day is over I ask myself.
I don't pretend to be super mom, although I really wish I had super powers.

Kira's First Day of School

August 19 was the well waited day for Kira, she had been anxiously waiting and would ask me almost every day - Is it the 19th mommy? That they was Monday, her very first day of school...

Before the first day of school I'm sure every parent wonders how is my child going to do in school? How will he or she reacts to that first day? Will they cope well or will they give a big scene and cry all morning long?

40 Years Wedding Anniversary (The ruby anniversary)

A year or 2 can go as fast as we blink our eyes, we can either have done so much or it could have passed by as nothing. But when it comes to 40 years something must have gone right.

A day like today 40 years ago my Mom & Dad got married and while just like then, today I'm not with them LOL... I sure have them in my heart and I know they are enjoying their day together on a well deserved Vacation. I just wanted to take a moment and say Congratulations Mom and Dad.

Love

I would give the world for my family no questions asked. I'm not sure if "Why bother" is the proper title for this post as it's not bothering or an issue but it was in the heat of the moment what I wrote and I'm being to stubborn to change it now.

Kira for the first time at the Dentist.

It's now been about a week ago that we took Kira to the Dentist. Some people take kids earlier to visit the dentist, yet Kira's Pediatrician had examine her & was happy with her teething, so it's now that we take her to see the Dentist.

Getting her ready for her first visit to the Dentist was the easy part, we talked about it for a few weeks before the big day. She seemed to understand and was excited to go to the dentist.
