Christmas is Wonderful With Little Kids!

Love him in his new Christmas Suit!

Cute little man in his new Christmas outfit.

Had to add the 6th Anniversary flowers my husband got for me!

Aren't they gorgeous!


He took the pix too. he did a wonderful job!

Santa brought him a bike!

None of my pictures showed up well because they were just too excited and couldn't sit still! I'm willing to take that though! :)

Trying out his new bike!

Had to pose. He's such a cutie!

Garrett had fun watching his brother riding away!


slowly getting the hang of it.

Learning to turn.

He's proud of his big brother!

I can't get him to look at me because he can't take his eyes off his brother!

So excited and feels so accomplished!

Had to pose yet again for me! He's such a doll!








My little man hangin with his Uncle.
Got to see both sides of the family and talk with some of my family on the phone. It was really nice and great to see happy faces on my boys! Family is what it's all about! And I ABSOLUTELY love mine!

Crafts, crafts, and more crafts


I haven't been able to post some things because of Christmas, so I'm glad I get to post some now. I have been a busy Beaver and I guess will continue to be so with the high demand of the Birthday Board. Here's 
what I've been cooking up. And this isn't even everything! I must be crazy! :)

   
Recipe holders (or picture holder, or whatever!) Just paint and Mod Podge some scrapbook paper!

Epsom Salt Luminaries. Found this on Pinterest! I didn't get these finished because it got too cold for me to spray them with a sealer! So mad! But I have presents for people when it gets warmer!
All it takes is Epsom Salt, a drop of food coloring, Mod Podge a glass or jar (I got mine from a thrift store) and a clear gloss spray!
Cupcake stand. I made this for Landon's mickey party, but it actually goes with my kitchen colors too, so I was pretty lucky. I just found some plates and a salt shaker from a thrift store and a candle holder from the dollar store and glued them together. Love it!

One of my favorite crafts! Socks and rice from the dollar store, rope, buttons, the end of skewer, rubber bands and some glue! Found original post here.
My favorite crafts are the inexpensive ones! :)

This was a gift for our LDS Relief Society sisters (I'm the secretary). We etched the Las Vegas Temple onto a dollar store candle holder. Add a candle and Voila! (or a flashlight in my case! lol)
 
I found this site that had way cute Halloween treat baskets, but I knew it would be a time consuming project, so I decided that I would create some for winter! They are made from toilet paper rolls, white and black cardstock, glue, black beads, Mod Podge, glitter, and orange and yellow sharpies. I made over 30 all together, so it took a long time, but they are really cute! I'm really mad at my camera because it couldn't focus because of the glitter.

You can see some glitter here, but it's still blurry. Stupid camera!

Some paper flower bows for presents.
 
These are called Lumpies. It's a quiet nesting toy. They fit inside each other and each does different things.

This one has velcro hair and buttons on the front

with a zipper in the back

This one has a bow to tie and velcro hair

with buttons on the back

This one is velcro eyes, hair and octagon "button"


with snaps on the back

This one has velcro hair and a snap star
 
with shoe laces on the back

and this tiny one has hair to play with! Aren't they so cute!
Love any excuse to do crafts! Especially as presents to people!

Landon's Birthday

It's a Mickey Birthday!!
 

He was so happy! We watched it 1 1/2 times that night! (auto play)
So Landon got sick the night/morning before his birthday party,which was a few days before his actual birthday so we had to postpone it. We are hoping to have his party in a couple of weeks. So I tried to make our house a little festive for his birthday. It's Mickey/Christmas all over our house! He was definitely feeling better, which was good. We went out to lunch with Grandma and opened presents and watched Cars 2 (present from Grandma and Grandpa Rowley). It was a good day and he was such a happy boy. :)




Landon with his toy from Burger King too cute not to include!
It's a bit fuzzy, but such a cute picture of 3 of my favorite people!


He looks funny in this picture, but he's my little cute 4 year old!

He already loves the Rebels, so what better than to have a Rebel jacket from Grandma and Grandpa Whitehead!

Drums from Grandma and Grandpa Whitehead. He LOVES them.

My boys

I haven't posted pix of my boys in a long time. so I thought I would do some.

 He loves big boy food... and smiling at the camera (or his mom) :D

New suits for Christmas!

 Yup pretty cute!

He got really messy with spaghetti sauce I just had to take pix. Too bad they're fuzzy!


What can I say, my boys are photogenic!
