Saturday Freebie! Things that matter most.

I hope that you had a great Valentines day. I know I did. I was able to do some fun activites with my kids. They really made the holiday fun!

Krista has another freebie for you! This is the perfect mini kit to scrap those newly created Valentine memories!

And of course, this kit works great with Heritage Collector Storybook and Calendar modules. If you need a little refresher on how to import graphics, (its the same process as importing photos) Check out our "How to" tutorials on importing photos. You can watch a short movie that will walk you through the basic steps.

Download the mini kit here.

 Friday morning I woke up feeling a little overwhelmed by my list of  "to do's". I wasn't sure how I was going to fit it all in.

After I took my kindergartener to school, I was in my kitchen chasing my twins around.. As they were unloading my tupper ware drawer they moved on to another drawer where I store my bottle rings for canning. They completly unloaded that drawer too. I looked around at the mess all over my kitchen. I couldn't help but sit down on the floor and join in the fun with my twin boys and 3 year old daughter.  We built bottle ring towers, made hats out of tupper ware and chased each other.

When the time approached to go pick up my son from school (an hour and half after I dropped him off) I thought to myself my son needs to play with us too! Somehow my list of "to do"s didn't seem so important anymore.

After I brought my son home, we decided to have a "Caveman breakfast".

We piled up blankets all over the table and chairs. My kids were in heaven!

I made some waffles and my children carefully put their place mats under the table where they set their plates, silverware, and sippy cup of milk.

My children were so happy and excited to have breakfast in their proudly made "caveman cave".

A tender moment caught on camera as my children get ready to pray over their food.

Eating their delicious breakfast.

This ended up being the most important thing I did on Friday. And it wasn't even on my "to do" list! I never thought a messy kitchen could be so much fun.

I think we will make this a Friday morning tradition.

Having Heritage Collector is such a blessing to me. Being able to organize, preserve and share these precious memories is priceless!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today! See you soon.
