Happy Mother's Day

I'm supposed to be napping right now, but I just have to write this post first.

I want to shout out a very Happy Mother's Day to my wonderful mother, mother-in-law, and my grandmothers aunts and sisters, and all of you other mothers, or women who are mothers to other people's children!

This will be a fairly short post.

We made a gift for Grandma Kathy and Grandma Dixie, but it turned out to be a very time consuming project.  We finished making them last night!  There was no way to get to out in time for today (obviously).  So, I decided that we would take pictures of them and post them here, that way you can get a "feel" for the gift before it actually arrives later this week.  Please forgive us... we started on making these last week!

We went to a class with the homeschooler's association here in Hobbs, and the girls learned about making books.  It was fun for them, and they jumped right in and wrote their story.  I knew that Mother's Day was coming up, so I thought that maybe it would be a good idea to finish their books and make a few copies and send them to the girl's grandmas!  I think they turned out kind of cute!  I had a vision about how they would turn out, and they are pretty close to it!

The whole process was a lot of fun, and I think that the girls will most likely be making more books in the future!


We made 3 of each book, that way we have one of our own!

Bunny wrote and organized the illustrations for her book.  I did the photography,
the graphics, and Hoss funded the project.

Here is Bunny reading her book for you!

Bug wrote her book pretty quickly at the homeschool activity.  She seemed to really enjoy the activity and set right to it.  She even drew illustrations for each page, but in the end, she wanted me to take pictures.

Bug wrote and organized the following publication.  I did the photography and graphics.

Hailee will read it for you.

Kenson likes reading them too!
