I can see clearly now...

So I am surfing around and came across this amazing idea! 40 Bags in 40 Days. The blogger from White House Black Shutters  did this last year and she is doing it again this year! I am constantly trying to clear the clutter in our house, with 4 kids a hubby and me you can imagine how fast stuff can pile up on you. I will post pics soon of our transformations, before and afters. I have kind of become a blog addict lately (which could be why our house is cluttered! LOL) well that and Pinterest! So many cute ideas out there! Please click the links above to check out both Ann Marie's blog and the link party 40 Bags in 40 Days feel free to comment on how you are doing clearing the crap from your house and lives! Lets face it, it is crap we don't need we just hold on to it in case we might someday! (That's what my hubs says anyway) We won't and if you do cross that bridge then! Spend the time you would have moving the clutter from place to place with your family and friends, do something constructive! At least that's what I am going to try to do!

Here's to another crazy jam packed weekend in our house, I hope yours is great too!

See you soon!

I love reading, with 4 kids however it doesn't always happen. I am going to try to read one book a month and I will let you know what I thought. Please feel free to share what you are reading too in the comments. I am going to start with The Help, if you click the link you can buy it too.

So are you a reader?

I read to my kids pretty much every day they LOVE it and so do I!! We try to set aside the half hour before bed to read together. It calms them and relaxes them for bed too.

Do you read to your kids?

Have a great Thursday

Hi everyone or me! We finished the kids Valentines last night and I must say they turned out pretty darn cute!! We got the idea off Facebook and Party On! Designs, there is a link to her Etsy shop check it out if you have a party coming up she has a bunch of very cute things!! But here is a picture of the crayons we made!
We ended up making 60 of them so they could all take some somewhere!! Forgive the quality of the photo it was late and all I had was my phone at the time.

We don't really do anything special as far as going out for Valentine's Day just spend it all together which is OK with me cause that is what the day is about anyway. I am so blessed to have 5 Valentines that mean the WORLD to me!!!

We hope you have a great Valentine's Day and do something with the special people in your life!

What did you send with your kids to school? Do they exchange Valentines?

Happy Tuesday!
