More found Pictures!

Jilliann broke one of her drumsticks so we did a family day out and had to stop by the music store and pick some up!

Playing the drums like a pro! ** just a little on the short side!

Before Sea World I finally unloaded a box back into the kitchen!
I turned around to put the box outside and this is what we found!
Markers and cardboard!

They drew a castle and were saving it from bad people. Then they drew the ocean and were trying not to fall out of the pirate ship!

Driveway Art!

Vacation work!
When we got back from our wonderful vacation the weather was gorgeous so we decided to work outside! Tommy cleaned the garage out and I was granted the pleasure of pressure washing our driveway and sidewalks!
The kids saw me doing this and decided they wanted to try...
They had a blast drawing on the driveway!

Kasey's masterpiece (you can tell how dirty it is!)

Jilliann's ocean adventure (that is what she titled it!)
 It looks AMAZING now and we have the cleanest driveway on our street!

After our day of cleaning I had forgotten to take something out for dinner, so we ran to Mexican and got this little photo op!

I was going through Tommy's pictures and found these!

Jilliann made a kite the day that I went to Quinn's party!

I guess she made daddy a triclopse?!? 

I was doing laundry this day and remember seeing the phone out! Those three are nuts!!

Flowertown Festival!

The weekend we got back from Sea World the Festival was in town!
We love going and sometimes you can find really interesting things!
Lynne joined Oba and I with her two grand babies!
Of course we had to get a picture with the dog!
 I got this little beauty to go outside! 
I also got an initial plant hanger... (its a W inside of a circle that you can hang a plant from)
 I also got some amazing inspiration!
we got a shelf that will hang above the toilet in the bathroom but I have to paint it first!

Too Soon!!!!

I hope things calm down soon! We got back from Sea World on Wednesday and then on Thursday I had to register Jilliann for KINDERGARTEN!!! 
What already!
She went with me and was sooooooooo excited!
She won't start until August 20, but we are slowly preparing her for what is coming. She is so excited to go to the big girl school!
Where did all of this time go? Where did this little girl go?

We did our annual Easter photoshoot before the festivities began!
It was a lot of fun this year!

funny faces

I don't know what Tommy was thinking but they both cracked up the whole time he was trying to be serious!

Getting ready to go hunt for Easter eggs!

Jilliann found one!

Kasey didn't find very many because he would get the egg, take the candy out and then go find another one. Well because of this, he kept going back to the same ones.

So pretty

Dinosaurs ALIVE!

Kasey's Dino Eggs!

We got these eggs at Michaels and we were going to spray paint them but ended up with a rough and drippy surface!

So we decided to paper mache them! Let me just say that is the worst thing in the world!
(I don't do well with sticky messes!)
I suffered through it and we got a great surface to start painting on
we just used acrylic craft paint and a foam brush ... nothing fancy!
two coats was more then generous! let it dry and then...

Paint your dots!

Ta-da. Your very own dinosaur egg!

After they dried, we cut a hole (i felt like i was cutting a pumpkin)

The kids helped me stuff them and they did a great job!
We used these as the kids party favors and put candy and other little party favor goodies inside of them!
we used Easter grass as a filler!

Finished project! Complete with baby T-Rex and Longneck!

Since we celebrated Kasey's birthday on Easter these fit perfectly for the theme! Each kid had to hunt for their egg with all the other ones!

I loved making these paper dinosaurs!
I wanted him to have something special with his name that i could use again for his room, so my brother and I made him this hanging art!

After we did the sign we made spiked party hats that i have seen everywhere online! I made a ton of these little dinos! Kasey's GIANT T-rex was made special for him with his BIG 3!
We only did a few decorations since it was Easter and did not want to take away from that special day! This little bit was enough to make him feel special and he LOVED all of it!

I also made his cake, with directions for that here!
we used hershey drops, hershey kisses, and raisinets.

I will be selling these paper dinosaurs and party hats here and sign here to anyone interested!

Kasey's Big Day!

Kasey's Birthday!
We had an absolute blast and I got to make some really fun stuff! The kids had a blast helping too!

He was having so much fun!

Birthday BOY!

Daddy was getting eaten by the T-Rex pinata!
