What a week!

Yeah! I know... he's smiling now.... Today it's cool- Tomorrow when it starts to itch... he's not going to be smiling anymore. This is Cameron.... my youngest.... he hit one of his skinny friends, playing around and broke his ring finger right where it meets his hand.... and will be wearing this beautiful shade of green for 5 weeks. Doesn't he know it's summer time and like a million degrees outside???

However.... he can still hold the play station controller so "It's all Good!" LOL

I also want to thank everyone that left me a comment about my 'other' family. I really do appreciate it! I have cried everyday, more for the family then anything.... I miss them dearly. I've been trying to text her several times a day to let her know I love her..... I also made her some signs that she can put in her purse. LYLAS is something we've put in letters since childhood.... it means Love You Like A Sister...... I also have a book for her.... When we were in higschool, she handed me a note in the halls one day.... It was a poem she had found in the library about best friends.... Made me cry then... and still makes me cry now... But years ago, I turned it into a book, and have just been waiting for the perfect time to give it to her..... I still need to sit down and write her a letter, but I just can't get my words right yet..... soon.

Thought I'd share some cuteness.... God knows I need it.... When I came earlier... this is what I saw....

Wilbur is the black one.... And the orange one is Otis.... They just look so cozy....

One more picture before I go...... See my monster blackberry?? I still can't not believe how many blackberries we got from our vines..... And.......... I made Jam:) I'm actually quite proud of myself.... I didn't use a recipe.... But I did read several websites about how to do it before I did it... Just used equal parts berries and sugar..... mashed everything, let it sit over night, strained it and then boiled the crap out it.. I honestly didn't think it would work..... But it did :) And OMG is it yummy! I went and bought some yummy bread earlier and later me and the kids are going to have another taste:)

As for everything else..... I'm so behind! LOL.... Story of my life, hahaha..... I have so much to get listed on Etsy.... Just haven't really been in the mood to do much of nothing.......

so
until next time.....

Oh! Katie, I'm very sorry for your little boy! Summer is a really bad time to break a finger! you can not swim to the sea !.... I hope that he will soon heal, but also to learn from this unfortunate experience, and hope he has learned the lesson:))
my kids play fighting, also, at times, but I always separate them, because I fear that they may be hurt.
for a mom is always a big disappointment ..
Your signs have made me cry .. I embrace you strong!
kisses, Caterina

My gosh Katie first of all I am so sorry about the lost of your best friends sister (I just read the other posts) I can understand how you are feeling at this time... and I am sure that the letter you are planning to write to your best friend will come into you soon...

Hope your son will be allright soon with his finger/hand and that he can stand this with that heat! ;-)

A big warm hug for you!
Jollie

OH my goodness, Katie, I remember seeing your post about your son and thought I had commented. You said it!
BOYS! LOL. How's he doing? Can't believe our boys have similar injuries with the same casts...
