Two new layouts

I'm not a very good blogger. I thought I'd share two layouts I did last night. Both are 8.5 x 11 and both are about my daughter.

This one is about the cute umbrella my mom bought for her.

For this layout, I found some cheesy cupcake stickers I had. They worked with the story and the colors, so I used them. Easy and fast layout!

Hey, Aunt Carolyn, Don't I Look Cute in the Outfit You Gave Me? and Bendaroos

It's finally warm enough to wear all the cute summer clothes that we have been stockpiling during the winter months. Today my daughter wore the cutest brown, pink and orange outfit that her aunt gave her for her birthday. I found the cutest shoes to match at the Carter's store for $3.99. Look at the adorable little miss! She even let me put barrettes in her hair which is completely unusual.

And recently we've been copying from Amy Bell and family and having fun with Bendaroos. Her blog post made me decide I should just break down and buy some since my son has been asking for them since last November. You should check out her etsy shop! So, thanks, Amy for inspiring hours of fun at our house. By the way, the box says that they don't take paint off the walls. Well, that's not exactly true.

Bendaroo tiara and sunglasses.

Bendaroo cowboy.

Bendaroo castle with knights in battle. And, yes, this is the wall where there's a little less paint than before I spent $19.99 on the Bendaroos. Oh, well. The child had so much fun and got seriously creative, so it was worth it.

Tagged by Lain! 7 x 7

I missed a tag from Lain Ehmann on April 2nd. Better late than never. I had to go to my seventh photo folder and select the seventh photo and post it here:
It's a picture of my son from last April. He was making a boat with his father. My dad had gathered a bunch of wood to make stuff with Jack and my mom gave us some when we were cleaning out Dad's stuff after he died.

I edited to pull the picture since I realized it had some info in it I didn't really want on the internet. For some reason, I can't crop it out. I'll try again!

Egg Hunt

We went to an egg hunt at my Grandma's apartment complex this morning. Kate was excited because she had seen Dora's egg hunt on TV. She only managed to get a couple of eggs. It was over in about 30 seconds. Guess one kid in the 3 and under category got most of them. Jack, on the other hand, did pretty well. He found 10 eggs.

Happy Easter!

My little Irish kiddos

Here's a picture from St. Patrick's Day. Both in their green!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I took pictures of the kids wearing their green this morning, but I'm too tired to download and post them. Maybe later this week. Anyway, we had St. Patrick's Day plates at breakfast this morning and wore green today. It was so nice here that we played outside after school and after I picked Kate up from day care. Since I didn't have dinner ready when Daddy got home, we went to Paradise. They had yummy green sugar cookies to sample. The kids ate about 3 each! I enjoyed the St. Pat's Day reuben and potato soup. Not healthy but yum! Hope you had a great St. Patrick's Day!
