A couple of random projects

Remember the little pink-vanity-mirror-cabinets from the boys’ bathroom redo? We decided to repurpose them into jewelry cabinets. Matt made me and Abby one. ūüôā We also founds a large mirror in the ally and put it up in the boys room.




Funny Quotes X

“I have the hook-ups.” both boys say this when they have hiccups. “My finger is all rumbly.” Ezra “Rumbly?” Me “yea the water did that.” Ezra “Wrinkly!” Me Ezra, “mommy I don’t know how to sleep.” Me, “well you start by closing your eyes and mouth.” Ezra, “but they keep popping open.” “Duty calls!” –…




Oven Fire

2013 started off with a bang. January 3 our oven caught fire! Luckily Matt is observant or it might have been worse. I was in the kitchen cooking dinner (it smelt so yummy and I couldn’t wait to devour it!) and Matt came in to tell me something. He noticed light in the oven and…




Boys’ Bathroom Update

The house we moved into had the same owners for its first 43 years. ¬†I know they loved and cherished the house over the years, but the last updates they made were probably 15-20 years ago. ¬†Needless to say it needs some love, new paint, and sometimes new fixtures. When we started the boys’ bathroom…




Age 4

Age 4 has hit me a little hard. Not in the “this age is so hard to parent” sense, because let’s face it every age has its hard-to-parent parts. Age 4 has really made me realize how fast they are growing up and how quickly my time with them is going by. Yes some days…




Snowball Fight

Okay we don’t get a lot of snow, or really any, but the boys really want snow. I saw an idea for an indoor snowball fight with paper balls and knew it would be a hit. We had a ton of fun and no one got cold and wet!




Making pizza

I try to let the boys help me in the kitchen. It isn’t easy for me, it requires a lot of patience and more planning than I’m used to, plus the kitchen gets even messier than when I cook (and I am a messy cook!). They really enjoy cooking though. Making homemade pizza was right…




Straw Connectors

The boys received these Straws and Connectors Kit for Christmas from Nana and Papa and they really are a lot of fun! They still need helping building an actually shape, but they can easily connect them by themselves. After daddy built the rocket ship in the picture, Ez insisted on some wings for himself. Noah…




Random pics

I’ve had these two pics saved on my desktop forever meaning to add them to the blog, but never have. They are from last February/March?




Shaving cream fun

I bought some shaving cream to do a science experiment I found on pinterest. It was a rainy day and you were supposed to use the shaving cream as clouds and food coloring as rain. It worked okay. Apparently my clouds were a little thick to let the rain come down. The shaving cream was…




Zoo Lights – 2012

Zoo lights are so much fun with 4 year olds. They really love the experience. The night we had picked to go it was supposed to rain. I decided that meant it was the perfect night because it would be less crowded. It worked out great, hardly any crowd and it didn’t start to rain…




How kids handle their nightmares

I find it really interesting¬†how kids handle their dreams and nightmares differently. We have entered that stage of nightmares and screaming¬†wake ups. Actually Ezra started months ago during the summer. He would wake up thinking there was someone in the room. So Stephanie found an idea from another mom, that we asked Ezra to take…
