kit card and so sweet

Yesterday was such a fun mail day here at my house! First in the mail I received my May 3 Little DReaMs kit. It included a massive amount of stuff and because I want you know all the great stuff you get in your kits so here is what I got. Beachabella, Life's a beach sentiment, 2 sheets of designer paper (one stripe you see here and one circle with similar colors), 6 12x12 (will be 8 1/2 x 11 in the future) sheets of Bazzil paper in a mustardy color, baby blue, and fun green, a Brilliance dew drop black ink pad, Fruit Punch Stickles, 2 colors and types of ribbon, 2 kinds of brads...okay so are you getting the idea that you get a ton of stuff? Now, because I'm a dork and I can't remember, I do know that a couple of those things are from the add on kit but for $8 bucks extra...it is totally worth it! I may have to go back and add it onto the two (yes two) kits that I ordered for June. Yep, I got both the Bella kit and the SNSS kits! I mean how do you pass on Bikeabababella and those cute owls? As much as I told myself that I'd never subscribe to a kit type of thing again after a very frustrating experience with another company like Katie's...I love Katie, her kit is fabulous, and the price is fantastic so I may just have to subscribe!

Okay, yes...you do see Kyler again. A week or so ago Lorraine told me that she had put something in the mail for Kyler for being brave with his dental appointments and such and I thought that was so sweet of her. Well...yesterday it arrived and holy cow it brought tears to my eyes! Can you see the super cute card? I love that part and Kyler loves the Toys R Us card (yep...TRU...can you believe it?) but what we both appreciate the most are the very sweet words that Lorraine wrote inside. You see...apparently she's been showing her almost 5 year old son, Randy, pictures of Kyler's whole mouth ordeal as we've gone along and Lorraine told Kyler that Randy said "I am going to be brave just like Kyler the next time I have to go to the dentist." And then told Kyler that he is Randy's hero. Kyler could hardly believe that someone who is almost 5 years old would look up to him. You see when you have two older brothers you do a lot of looking up and not much looking up happens to you. So, Lorraine...you have made an impression on Kyler that will not soon be forgotten and I don't think I can ever properly thank you BUT I'm going to try! So, he ends his ordeal tomorrow when he goes back to the dentist to finish his root canals. He is really looking forward to being all done with it all and honestly I don't blame him. Oh, and doesn't his smile look great without the stabilizing bar across it? 2 Thumbs Up We are then onto getting him to enjoy the water and learn how to swim. But you know what? He can and will do it!

All right you guys we need several more players for the image swap that is listed at the top. Do you have some friends that might like to play along? Invite them! Surely we can get two full groups! Also, you can join both groups if you'd like but you would need to use two different images.

I hope you all have a super fantastic Tuesday...maybe today could be your day to do something nice for others!
