Wordless Wednesday : Crafts

I love that Emma & Ethan are getting old enough to enjoy crafts. I started simple and we made Valentines to hang around the house in about a week.   The Dollar Tree was a great place to get these. $3 out of pocket and we spent about an hour making them! … [Read more...]

Wordless Wednesday… FIRST SNOW!

The first snow of 2011! Monday greeted us with a nice steady snowfall of 5-8 inches (and a snow day from school!) Ethan helping to scoop the snow off his sister’s car. Emma’s telling me she’s ready to hit the snow! Ethan snagged a free ride out of the deep end… His cheeks are so chapped because he fell face first in the snow. Poor guy walked like the stay puff marshmallow man! Undisturbed snow is so peaceful…   It’s only … [Read more...]

Wordless Wednesday… Christmas Came Early…

My husband is one of the few unfortunate souls that has to work on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. So we decided to celebrate as a family early (the kids didn’t mind at all!). Getting ready for the BIG MAN’S arrival! I’m pretty sure he didn’t think his new Hot Wheels were trash, it was just fun putting them in his new trash truck! I swear I don’t have a single decent picture of this boy lately! This is his instant reaction when he … [Read more...]

Wordless Wednesday … Renaissance Festival

We went to the local Renaissance Festival this weekend. Here are a few of the highlights… Emma trading in her royal crown for a gypsy crown…   Ethan decided he needed one too… Then we ran into “Cinderella”. She waved her magical wand over Emma’s wand she had just made… and after wishing her good wishes she pulled out a tiny little bow and handed it to Emma. Just for the fun of it, we had to stop for these… … [Read more...]

Wordless Wednesday… Flower Girl

I can’t believe I almost forgot Wordless Wednesday! My oldest daughter and I went to our local Fall Festival this weekend. Kaytlin was inspired by all of the hair flowers made by local vendors and decided to make a few for Emma. I think she liked them (all 12 of them! lol) … [Read more...]
