love you more, monkey!

Hi!  We have an unexpected free day today.  No kiddie activities or obligations.  But it's quickly filling up with chores and cooking.  Ha, there really is never a day with nothing to do.  At least I can still hang out in my pjs and not have to fix my hair.  I think that is the best way to spend the day.  And cooking waffles for lunch.  My kids always ask me to cook them something yummy for breakfast like waffles or pancakes or French toast but lately I'm just too sleepy in the mornings.  So I've decided breakfast for lunch is much easier for us.  And occasionally breakfast for dinner as well. 

This is a calendar I made for my middle one's birthday recently.  I did a tutorial on it HERE if you're interested.  Usually I make my kids some kind of book mark for their birthdays but he requested a calendar after he saw the first one I made.  So I made him one with this monkey which is an older CC Designs stamp.  They have it in digi format now and is called Flower Power

He loves monkeys!  And he always tells me love you more (from Elle's Studio) when I tell him I love you.  That is his special saying to me.  He is a sweet kid.  Hopefully he doesn't out grow that.

Tomorrow is the first day of school and back to early wake ups, wearing presentable clothes and blow drying/straightening my hair.  Hope you're enjoying your Sunday!

P.S.  I am entering this in Yumi & Fumi Handmade Crafts Challenge #21 -- Anything Goes.  They have new rules!  Any image is allowed.  Now I finally have a chance to win an awesome badge by Renate'!

Thanks for stopping by!

Cuteness! Cooking that morning meal is always difficult for me. I think it tastes better as dinner. Enjoy your "free" days because I'm sure you don't have much of them. Happy b'day to your sweet little one!
