So tonight, 8 pm, Spring arrives. And we are SO ready for it here in Colorado. We have had a nice couple of weeks weather wise though so no complaining. The boys were on spring break last week and the weather was fantastic. We had a busy week. The boys had a sleepover with my niece and nephew at Oma and Opa's house. I "worked" 2 days last week and I use that term out of habit only because it consisted of 4 kids and a puppy. LOL My mom and I entertained them all Tuesday, which was a glorious day, with hopscotch games on the driveway. Fun! I tell you that would be a good way to get some exercise, LOL We were huffing and puffing by the end of it. And Thursday I had purchased these plates at Hobby Lobby for all the kids to make. I traced each of their hands and they decorated them and wrote their name and the date. Then they each decorated one however they wanted. My aunt had these when we were little and we used them forever and just loved having our own plate. I can't wait to get them back in the mail! The kiddos all had a fun week!
Funny Leprechaun story: On Friday I took the boys to the party store because they wanted to get some St. Patrick's Day things. Cody really wanted a leprechaun outfit SOO BAD but they only had them for adults. So, they each got a hat and Cody picked out a bow tie while Jack wasn't as keen on dressing up so he picked a green lei. So we got home and Cody immediately changed into his stuff and a green shirt. Then he disappeared in the bathroom for awhile and when he came out he had this fantastic orange beard painted on his face. Too cute. So they wanted to surprise Daddy with the St Pat's stuff so we washed his face and hid their gear. Not a word mentioned Friday night about the next day being St Pats. So at 6 am they woke me up and after I make the required coffee, I helped them get dressed. Cody painted both their faces and then they snuck in to wake up Daddy. What a great way to wake up~ to your 2 little muchkins as leprechauns. They just loved it!
So, I used Shabby Miss Jenn's "Shabby Poppies" kit for the St Pat's page as well as some of her other goodies. And you need to check out all the new spring goodies she has right now! Several Quick Pages that make scrapping SO quick and easy and beautiful!
And a fabulous new Spring Desktop freebie for you to enjoy.
OK, Happy Tuesday everyone. I am off to do some painting now. Lots of painting in the house this week.
