Off To School They Go

every day 
every week
off to school we go

love her so much

dropping off and picking up
it's my routine
and i love it
wouldn't have it any other way
picking them up from school is one of the 
highlights of my day

and knowing where they are going
knowing what teachers they have
makes me happy inside
i am so grateful for their teachers

someone shared this with me and i though i'd share it with you

if you are a teacher
thank you.
thank you for teaching our children.
thank you for watching over them.
thank you for teaching so many levels/subjects everyday.
thank you for making me feel they are safe in your hands.
thank you for listening to parents concerns.
thank you for sharing your life with them.
and your stories.

we love teachers here in our home.

Night Time Around Here

it seems the days are going by so quickly
and the nights are here just the same

most of our days are mellow
not to many late nights 
and what we consider late is probably
nothing compared to the normal

one thing that is super important
to us is dinner
dinner together
shared together 
with conversation. laughter. and prayer.
and i am grateful for this time in our life
that we are able to do that 

there is a book my girlfriend shared with me
i have yet to get it but would love to


has anyone seen it
read it
have it

bed time

yup, nothing in those frames still :(

they found some bats in there room
off to get more black paper today
ran out

love my little thrown together burlap-pom pom frame
i know what i'd like to do with it
i need to get on that

anything you are working on?

are you able to have dinner together?
anything special you do?

Bat Garland - EasyPeasy - Weekend Craft

i love to create
and this one is a no brainer
but incase you need a little guidance 
i hope this helps

we traced our pattern onto black card stock over and over
and cut. and cut. and cut.
keep in mind, it doesn't have to be perfect
some of our bats have cropped ears :)
no craft around here is perfect
for us, that is the beauty of it

after cutting lots and lots of bats out
we took our old school elmers glue 
and polka dotted amd striped em' with silver/purple glitter

at first i tried taping them to the jute but they were to heavy
and kept flopping over
so we got a hole punch
punched a hole in the top of the bat 
and tied them to the jute/ribbon
with come curly ribbon
super easy. 
it added some color too

and because we have so much ribbon in this house
i decided to add different ribbons to it
by just tying them onto the jute in knots
now it's not done
we will be adding more ribbon
but i wanted to give you the heads up
so you can gather your supplies 
and have some fun cutting and creating this project together

and that's not all
what til' the girls get home from school each day
they'll be finding bats all over
the house
it's going to be
a little
around here


give away coming soon

Without a Doubt

this kid makes us laugh

she isn't the most outgoing kid 
she's not quiet either

she'll just walk down the hall
in character
it's hilarious

(side note. that is not a gun. that is one of her signature poses. Usually her fingers are bent around her chin)
just had to make that clear :)

and we laugh

cause she's funny
