connect 4.

blog headers.

Love all of these. 
Just sad that it took me until summer to finally do it. 
Guess I should figure out a new one for tomorrow!

Melissa & Doug... I don't know you... but we love your puzzles. 

for aunt kristin.

So it may not have technically been part of the present, but Gretchie loved this part of her gift, too...

my gifts.

As much as I love my Sharpies... I love my other gifts even more... 

This new little lens hasn't left my camera since I got it, so you only get to see picture of the box. I'm loving it! Thank you, Beki and Jana for the suggestion and advice! 

And this canvas... I love it so much. I just need to find the perfect place to hang it. Looking at it makes me so happy.

paint strips.

I saw this idea on the eighteen25 blog. 
They suggested it as a Father's Day gift. 
But since Uncle Brian is a manager at Sherwin Williams, I knew this gift was perfect for him... 

He called it one of the best gifts he has ever been given. 
So I think he kind of liked it.  :)

gingerbread house.

christmas day.

Can you tell it's a giraffe?

 Who knew you could buy a Build-a-Bear Kit? Sophie and my mom stuffed it on the couch and then used the enclosed needle and thread to sew it up! She was thrilled!

Someone was not happy that she couldn't get into her favorite place...

The ZOOBS were a big hit!

We laughed when we pulled out these out this year. These were the kids' ornaments last year. The little sheep says Baby's 1st Christmas, Sophie got the mouse and Lawson has the zebra with 1 really long arm. (Their arms are springs and Lawson just couldn't resist pulling too hard on his. The zebra's arms stretch clear down below his feet. One came all the way off.) He looks so funny and makes me smile when I see him. :)
