Best Bouquet of Flowers EVER!




Check out this awesome bouquet of origami flowers my husband made me for Mother's Day!

And guess what the stem is made out of?... new oil paint brushes for my art.
I think what has impressed me most about this is the time and thoughtfulness he put into it... especially with his tight schedule.  Who has the most adorable husband in the world?  I DO!!

Egg and an Ant

My oldest daughter made a humpty dumpty egg.  I love the band aide.. nice touch!


 In school she has been learning about ants .  She's always loved bugs and can spend hours studying them.  When she got home from school she made this ant farm out of sculpey.  

What do you see?

My oldest son loves... no wait not loves... obsesses over football!  We gave him some magnet toys to give him  variety to his free time.  Can you see the shape he made?

Birthdays

We've had a couple of birthdays recently.   I can't do all the crazy fancy stuff some moms do for birthdays but I can throw in a few thematic things just for fun.

  
My daughter wanted a beach theme and my son wanted a super hero theme. Here's some pictures from their parties:

My kids love making these and they are super easy!  We always like to make them for St. Patrick's Day but they are great for any occasion. Taste a Rainbow Cupcake Recipe
