Bridal Veil Falls

Yesterday, I hijacked my parents and we went to Bridal Veil Falls.  We had a great time!

As Betsy put it... the boys re-arranged the entire rock layout at the bottom... and loved every minute of it!

Thanks Dad and Betsy!!! We had an absolute blast!

Teacher Appreciation Gifts

Last Sunday, I headed up to my sister Jodi's house to have some crafty time.  With Teacher Appreciation Week approaching, she sent me a few pic ides of gifts.  With that in mind, I loaded up my Cricut Imagine, crafting supplies and the boys and we made the haul to Jodi's.  While the kids all played, we got to crafting.

Below are most of the supplies we used.  Stampin Up and Cricut are my favorite to use in most of my projects!!

My sweet niece, Piper used my fun scoring tool from Stampin Up and made the lollies.

Jodi cut out fabric while I cut out the vinyl.  She had 3 rectangle jars for her teacher gifts - they were fantastic!!!  If I remember right they were 4" x 5.65"

These are pics of one of the finished ones.  I just love how they turned out.

Jodi- thank you so much!! I needing a crafting "fix" :)  love you!! xoxoxo

Valentines from Mom and Dad

Today is Valentine's Day... the day of love...

Gary and I gave the boys some special gifts... We bought these cute little guys with Love and Hugs on the feet.  They LOVE their chocolate.  Finally are their "buckets of love."  Inside these buckets are little notes from mom and dad that say reasons why we love them... like "I love how you make me smile.  I love the snuggles you give...."

Reed's Valentine's Day treats and holder

Tomorrow is Valentine's Day... Normally I'd be the mom up until 2am working on Valentine's for teachers and kids.  This year... I'm ahead of my usual game.  On Friday we began a fun family paper mache project for Reed's Valentines "holder" for school.  Below is the transformation :) (Thank you McDonald's for the inspirational toy)

Above shows what a fantastic Artist our Reed is :)

Below...there's a hole in his head for the delicious Valentine goodies

Reed and I spent an hour or so laughing and crafting together.  This is what we made for the teachers and other faculty.  The kids will get the tag and a fun size bag of Reeces Pieces (not pictured)

This shows the front and back of the tags... his favorite part of making them was using the hammer and setter for the eyelits.

Happy Valentine's Day!!! xoxo
