Served up some pretty smoothies for breakfast this morning. 🫐🍌 By request.
We grazed on snack-y foods in the living room (something we never do) for dinner while watching A Charlie Brown Christmas this evening. The kiddos liked it a lot (especially that little girl sneaking her way into this picture…she kept serving us food ❤️).
Haven’t gone to the garden in several days. Walked out to it today and found 10 monarch caterpillars.
Honestly, pretty proud of my Magnatile plane
One of my favorite thrift finds from the past few years
Brigsby and I did some crafting today. He created his own “craft” while I did some cutting: Small cardboard pieces that he arranged and rearranged into abstract art. 😍
Haaaaard nap time today, but success is a little bit sweeter on these days. 💛
Breakfast with a side of bike helmet
Favorite little duo
Planted these beauties yesterday evening with Brigsby. He wanted to go to the “plant place,” and he said he needed 5 plants. We came home with 9. He beat me. Proud. 💚
I opened a new package of (3) bows and put one on Rowyn this morning before we left to go eat lunch. I had the others in my hand. She crawled back to me, grabbed one and tried to put it on her head herself then gave it to me fully expecting me to put it on her head. So I did. Then we proceeded the same way with the last one. She was happy as could be once I got them all on her. I guess if there’s a bow around, it’s to be worn. I mean, a crown of bows is quite a statement. 🎀👑
Looks like I took this picture this evening, but this was before sunrise this morning since that’s when he awoke. 😴 And that’s his morning smile. Always.
Looks like he’s jamming to some tunes on the headphones he found in a box I was unpacking a few days ago. Nope. Just needed to wear them first thing this AM. While eating breakfast.
That was just the beginning today. He’s been so enjoyable. As usual. But I guess a little extra. Which is fun. And certainly amusing.
My babies + blocks 😍
Allllll the blocks this morning. Entertained them off and on all day. Might be pulling them all out more often. Honestly, pretty proud of myself (and Matt) for picking them all up tonight. 😏
We did a quick Mother’s Day craft with stuff we had on hand. I got the idea from Pinterest. The original craft used foam for the “blooms” and leaves, which I’m sure would be a little more durable (and not show the bleed through of glue). But I didn’t have any, so I just grabbed the card stock. Amazingly, both my 3-year-old and 13-month-old let me quickly trace their hands! My expectations were low, but highly exceeded. Brigsby carefully painted the popsicle stick “stems” while I cut out handprint “flowers” and leaves (I just quickly drew them with a pencil). Although it’d be super easy to finish quickly, we actually didn’t get it all done in one day. Brigsby probably spent about 20 minutes painting (crafts aren’t typically his jam, but he connects with painting here and there), then was ready to move on. So, I set everything aside and finished up today. I love how they turned out! 2 are for my mother-in-law, 2 are for me, and 1 is for my husband because Brigsby wanted to make him one too. 💙 If I had planned ahead (story of my life, but I’m working on that), I would’ve done a few more to gift to my MIL because the little wrapped bouquet is so fun! Maybe we’ll make some more later. This would be a great keepsake craft, birthday gift, Spring/Summer activity, etc. Definitely not Mother’s Day specific. But that’s how I found the idea, and I’m glad I did!
PS - I might have had as much fun taking pictures of them as I did putting them together. 🙂🙃
Missed a couple days of the photo challenge. But back for today, February 8th: This would’ve fit today’s prompt, CONTRAST, so much better if I had taken a photo of the glass next to my grandpa’s face (yes, that’s my Pop), but the black on the clear glass is an okay 2nd go at it.
