They are 2 totally different people. They have way different personalities. :) Jude is my brainiac and Aidan is my "all boy". Jude is 12 and in 7th grade and Aidan is 6 and in 1st grade. I know....Aidan is almost as big as Jude. :))) Jude is my little pee-wee, hehe! Smallest one in his school. Poor thing. But we keep telling him that it will be good with the ladies, hehe! They will think he is so darn cute being so little. Thank you for letting me share my future stud-muffins. :)))

Okay, this sounded like so much fun that I HAD to get involved in this. :) I am jumping on board to participate in a random act of kindness. The way it works is I send a small gift to each of the next three people who make a comment in this post. Then those three people do the same by posting about it in there blogs and sending gifts to the first three posters. It is just a super nice thing to do AND to get to know other great fellow bloggers! So please jump in and post if you are interested....I think it will be so much fun! It's doesn't have to be much , it only needs to fit into an envelope or small box. You don't have to make it although that would be cool if you can. Somebody, anybody? Won't you let me send you a gift? Thank you for participating in advance!

It's been a while! :)

Hello all...sorry it has been a while since I posted. I have been busy just trying to get my house organized a bit here before my kids go back to school. I had to go and sign them up today, makes me a bit sad that their first day of school is coming so soon. They start the 19th! Jude, my 7th grader, is NOT looking forward to it at all. :) But there is Aidan, who is in 1st grade, just can't wait! He is so excited. So I will be having orientations next week and school shoes shopping. My mother-in-law bought them the clothes that they needed to get started. And my Mom bought all of their school supplies. So that just leaves me with shoes. :) Gotta love Moms!

So let's see...what else is new with me? Well, nothing. :) I have reorganized and set up my crafting room a bit different. I have been babysitting my nephew alot. Other than that we have just been hanging out.

I am sure once the boys are back in school I will have LOTS more time to get on here...have a wonderful evening everyone! :)
