Spring Break Activities

Prepare to be bombarded with pictures! For Spring break I tried to do something with each one of the children. Jason and I went shopping together for some new pants...that boy needs to stop growing! We had fun. Emi and I attempted to learn how to sew. I found this cute pattern for these bags. I thought they would be easy....HA! But we managed to get it figured out. :0) It was like the blind leading the blind. LOL
I changed a few things. I used ribbon for the handles instead of fabric and I added flowers. I think they turned out pretty cute. We made one for each of the girls and for my niece, Tori, who just turned 8.

This flower is from the pretties kit that Stampin' Up! sells. The button is one of the corduroy buttons that SU! has in the Occasions mini catty that just came out. I LOVE these buttons!

With the leftover fabric we made aprons. I used ribbon again for the straps and PTI buttons. These little aprons are so cute. It is just a square piece of fabric. I made one for each of the girls and Tori.

Josh wanted in on the picture. What a character!

Kenna and I made TONS of cookies. We made Peanut butter chocolate chip, butterscotch chocolate chip, and TWO batches of Snickerdoodles because they are daddy's favorite. I freeze them in a big ziploc bag and then just pull them out as needed.

This is a picture of an accident we had. Josh fell off of our benches onto our dutch oven and tore his ear. They glued it back together. Not pretty, eh?

Of course we have to get a picture of the babies. They are growing so quickly! They are rolling and scooting. They are seriously the BEST babies I have ever had. So happy and they love to hold hands and talk to each other.

We had the Pinewood derby. Here was Bryce's car, Lightening McQueen. Too bad Dad wasn't here to help.

It wasn't very fast, but it was the best looking car there. :0) I found out later we were supposed to graphite the wheels or something?? Oh, well....

Bryce and I also went to see "Race to Witch Mountain". I have seen it twice now. Is it just me or is Dwayne Johnson smokin' HOTT?! :0) That's not why I saw it twice, though....
I hope you enjoyed this little sneak peek into my life!

Thanks for the updates. I love the bags and aprons! Cute fabric! I never follow patterns, I always end up changing them too.

Ok just stop it already! How do you do it? :-) Your kids are so lucky to have you as their mommy. One on one time is so fun and they're going to have such great memories of that.
Thanks for the updates!
