Happy 5th Birthday!

So I realized just today that I didn't blog about my older son's birthday, which was February 23rd.  The reason behind that is this:  he's 9.  'Nuff said.  LOL  He didn't want anything crafty or cute....and I only got 1 pic of him opening his present.  He didn't feel well that evening either, so we didn't even have any CAKE!  and for any of you that know my son, that is MAJOR!  LOL

So today was R's birthday. He turned 5, and he's been looking forward to it with so much anticipation.  I realized the day was a hit when he said to me, "Mom, this is the best birthday EVER!"  Right on, little dude!!

First, a picture of him with is birthday shirt (which he LOVED!! despite its being not centered and crooked!)

Next, a picture of his football cake...this is what he requested!

Perfect? No.  Perfect to him? YES.

At the end of the day, I can sit and say: I'm not a fabulous baker/decorator.  I'm not an expert t-shirt maker.  I can hardly take a decent picture to save my life!  But I am a mom who loves her kids, and I will do all I can to make them happy.

Thanks for visiting just jayma.

I'm back!

I don't know how you all manage to be crafty every day! I just can't keep up t!! This is what I've been up to:

One of his favorite places to be: on my computer!  LOL  You can see I have MTC open in the background.

This is so silly, but I made a cute little duct tape "bow" for Baxter's topknot.  He didnt' leave it in very long....but isn't he cute with it?!

I do have one more thing I did, just tonight...My BABY BOY turns 5 tomorrow!  **sob**

I wanted to make him a t-shirt for his special day....
It's hard to tell, but the shirt is dark blue, and the HTV is baby blue.
This was only the 2nd time I've used HTV, and I messed up the first one.  LOL  I forgot to reverse my pattern.  LOL  Ha ha on me. What a dunce.

I can't wait until tomorrow when my baby boy gets his shirt!  I tried to talk him into staying home with Momma, but he wants to go to school (he attends the special needs preschool 3 days a week).

I made this with Lettering Delights DB Circles--Birthday....I did a little editing on the candles, and then added two more, since he's turning 5.  This isn't the best doodlebat to cut without editing, it has some funky blank spots in it....and I was really disappointed that it didn't stay straight.  I put it all down with the weeded part down, so I could get placement right, but when I pulled up the weeded part, everything went skeewompus.  Bummer, but it's good enough for who its for...I mean, come on, you think he's going to care?  LOL
