Hello! My name is Shannon Crossin, owner of Crossin My Heart Creations. Besides being a business owner I'm also a SAHM. My sweet little girl is 6 years old. She is me and my husband, of 8 years, pride and joy. Please visit my online store at: www.CrossinMyHeart.com Creating is a passion of mine that I love to share!
I'm handing all the credit for this over to my lovely husband. We HAD to run to Hobby Lobby last minute to grab 3 things (and I did- GO ME!). Next to Hobby Lobby was PetCo.... Look out.
We wanted to get our daughter a fur baby for awhile. She has a Beta Fish "Bubbles." But we both had gerbils and hamsters growing up. We were concerned that had a small rodent gotten loose (which is highly likely with it living in our 6 year old's room), that we may never find it again, haha! So a larger version was the ticket.
Meet Pongo, our Guinea Pig, and our daughter's newest buddy...
You will see in the video the size of the other cucumbers we hope that can be picked shortly too!
This is our tower garden Week #8:
We FINALLY have some tomatoes growing! About 7 small green tomatoes are clustered on one of the 4 plants. The strawberries are slowly producing a fruit here and there. No luck on the broccoli or cantaloupe yet, the plants are growing great, just no fruit/veggie to be seen.
So far the best plants are still the lettuce, and now the cucumber!
It's growing SO LARGE now! both the cantaloupe and cucumber plants are growing along the ground now.
First we got to sleep in because our daughter spent a much needed night with her Gramma and Papa after they were away for a week on vacation. She really missed them.
We ate a late breakfast
When our little one arrived home, just in time for late breakfast, she gave her daddy his Father's Day gift. The card was perfect - a dad trying to put a bow in his daughter's hair :-)
A personalized coffee mug - he had just complained we didn't have any "manly" coffee mugs in the house. This one not only said "World's Best Dad" (which he is), but also has his name on the other side.
And the best part of the gift was a Q&A sheet Alyssa filled out on her own. I love how her little mind works.
Here's a close up of the Father's Day Q&A
Alyssa with her Daddy
She is as much a Daddy's girl and she is a Mommy's girl
This is me, Alyssa, and my dad
We went out to dinner and went back to my parent's house for yummy cheesecake desert.
All in all I think the guys were pretty happy with their special day.
Happy Father's Day to all the dad's out there! And to all the mom's that not only play the mommy role, but the daddy role too.
