Happy Monday-Got books?

Good Morning!

How was your weekend? Mine was pretty good! I got some crafting done and hubby and I were able to get a sitter at the last minute and have a date night. We had a wonderful evening.  We looked at our schedule and we are totally booked till the end of April.  As I have said before date night is so important!  Poor Michael though hates it when we leave.  The boys sitter is my cousin so the boys know her very well, but Michael just keeps saying to her "I want mommy and daddy back".  Poor little thing!

Got Books?
Everyone in my family loves to read, and when Jack was little I started reading to him and he just loves books.  At his school the librarian comes every week to read a book and she said that you needed to be 5 to get your first library card.  Well Jack came home after school and he was so excited because he just turned 5.  So we went and Jack got his first card.  Oh, he was way too happy.  You know me.  I carry my camera with me everywhere so I took these pictures.  I just love them and I created this layout with them.

Well I hope everyone has a fantastic day.  I will be back tomorrow with a new layout.  Thanks for stopping by!

So cute, love the brads and the little bingo card. You're right, all is right with the world, for today anyway... I have layouts for the rest of the week though. Hopefully I'll be all the way back to normal next week! ;) It sure felt good to post that card today though!

So cute! I love these photos and the layout goes with them perfectly. I loved reading to my kids and for while when they went to elementary school I would go around to the various classes and read to the children. Loved doing that!
