Clifford The Big Red Dog

On Tuesday, Charli Beth's school had character dress up day. They all dressed as their favorite character and had a parade around the school. If you remember, Charli was Fancy Nancy. So was every other little girl.

So this year I helped her think outside of her glitz and glam brain. It ended with a quick decision of being Clifford. So I spent $4 on pants, $4 on a shirt to match, $3.46 for a yard of fleece, and $3.97 for stuffing.

My Mother in Law the sewing genius helped me with the tail. Just watching her in auction made me want to learn how to see even more. It is officially added to my bucket list. Anyhow on Tuesday morning, as I colored in the tip of her nose with eye liner she begged me to do the rest of Clifford's face. Whhhatt? Panic! After much fuss, I gave it my best shot in hopes that she did not look silly.

She was such a ham acting like Clifford and had the best day school. They also celebrated Fat Tuesday by having a King Cake and she was the lucky winner of finding the baby in hers. The look of envy from the other kids, cracks me up in the picture. I am so glad that her teacher is kind enough to send me photos during the day!

Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
