These are the days.....

When we got back from our vacation, I had a beautiful box from my blog friend Teresa at Maggie Grace Creates waiting on my table.   Inside the box was a journal, laces (I heart laces), beads, post cards, and her own crocheted pieces!  It is all so beautiful and I love love love it!  Thank you Teresa:)

After a lazy Saturday afternoon of napping, Ryan and Miss. M woke up to watch some World cup and color. I love my little family.  It is so nice when we have no where to be.  I made a big dinner and strawberry shortcake.  

I love the rare occasion of getting to sit around the table and visit with our kiddos.  Later we sat on the front porch to watch the kids do a "dance party" to the Black Eyed Peas.  Ryan videoed it all! 
 Later, the kids and dad went into the basement to watch a movie.  He let them eat popcorn and that was the end of all the fun!  They all get terribly sick when they eat it.  So, our wonderful family night turned into midnight puking.  Everyone made pallets on the floor in our room to sleep by their trash cans!  We didn't mean to poison our kids with popcorn! lol  What is it about popcorn that makes them so sick?!?!?  My poor babies!  Oh these are the days!:)


  1. What a sad end to such a great day. : (

    I've never heard of kids getting so sick from popcorn. Are they allergic? Maybe it's something in the microwave ingredients? Too much butter? Poor things!

    Are you SURE it was the popcorn and not your cooking?! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!

  2. Love the stuff you received from Theresa. My son could never eat popcorn. It made him sick as well. Hope they are doing better. Love ya, Sylvia

  3. Oh gosh, sounds awful. I think I would find another snack. Thank-you for your visit. I just look at all that white twine and admire it. No thoughts yet...but you have me thinking.

  4. I've never heard of popcorn making anyone sick, but it sure reminds me of when I was little and ate too much corn on the cob. I had to sleep on the couch with a trash can by me (you can imagine why I wasn't in my bed anymore). The dance party to the Black Eyed Peas sounds fun, though! Have a great day! Twyla

  5. Love your blog! I like popcorn,but then again not really. I hate when it gets stuck in my But so sorry your family got sick from it. What a way to end the fun. I also wanted to thank you for stopping by my blog and the sweet comment.
    Have a fantastic week,

  6. Shelley, Shelley, Shelley,
    Your flowers are darling. I do not understand why my attempts end up looking so miserable! I guess I do not have the magic touch.

    Your poor family. That really is an odd reaction. I wonder if they are allergic but that isn't even a typical allergic reaction. (I like to play pediatrician!!) It sounds like you are having a nice cozy time together. Hope they get well soon.

    Your swap looks wonderful. That lace especially looks yummy. I am a big old lace fan, too. Just LOVE it! My daughter came home from an estate sale with a box of old lace for me for $5. I just loved her forever for that one!!!

    Thanks for the nice comments on my blog. It is kind of funny that a bunch of women are spending all this time decorating matchboxes but I just love doing it....silly me! And I love getting them in return. Think i am going to need to settle down a bit.

    Good thoughts for all your family...



I would love to know what you think! :)
