Little Picassos!

I thought it would be a good idea to let the kiddos finger paint.  It was bath night - but still......I didn't quite realize what I was getting in to!

Hmmmm - this red pudding tastes funny. :)
THANK YOU Pinterest - for showing me the clean way to let your kids play w/ finger paint!  Ziploc bag w/ paint inside and no mess!

Almost as much fun as the real deal.....
And here's a real work of art that we are so excited to have framed and hanging in our hallway!  Brianne's class of Kinderfrogs created this masterpiece!  Each kiddo did one color...and on the back of the painting is their hand print in that color.  LOVE this! 

My little painter - hard at work!

My favorite wall in the house!

Happy Father's Day

LOVE Free Printables.  Make for fun/cute gifts!!!  LINK!
My kiddos are so lucky to have an amazing daddy.  The smiles that they get when they see daddy and the way their eyes light up is priceless! 

It's also worth noting that I am VERY lucky to have an amazing dad! 
Father's Day Breakfast - Inspired by Pinterest - Cinnamon Bun Waffles! :)

Grease the waffle iron and throw the cinnamon bun dough on for 2-3 minutes.  Mix the frosting with a splash of orange juice and microwave for a few seconds - pour on top and ENJOY! 

Wagon Rides!

The kids are enjoying evening walks around the neighborhood in their wagon.

 Hmmmm - what is that???????
 EEEK!!!!!!  Two baby skunks?! Not what I expected to see on our walk.....glad I saw them - and didn't SMELL them. :)

Sunday Morning Fun



There's a blog I follow - and it is my FAVORITE!   ENJOYING THE SMALL THINGS
 It's written by Kelle Hampton - who has two beautiful little girls, one of whom has Down syndrome.  Kelle is a skilled photographer and takes AMAZING pics of her girls and writes in a way that entertains, and inspires.  Shortly after I learned of Brianne's extra chromosome - I found Kelle's blog - and it was exactly what I needed.   I'm so happy that she has now published a book!

Friday night I walked into Barnes and Nobles and it was so exciting to be able to walk in and pick her book up right off the shelf!!!!

I'm only thru the first few chapters - but I'm certain that it will take the place of my favorite book!  If you are looking for a good read - check this out!!!!  

B loves Bloom!
B pointing to her friend, Nella! :)

 Something crazy happened this evening - I had 5 minutes to sit down and read Bloom! Dinner was in the oven - Brianne was MESMERIZED by Baby Signing Times (she didn't take her eyes off it!)

 - and Bryce was passed out in his high chair.

So I had 5 blissful minutes to sit down and read a bit of Bloom before dinner. :)  It was a crazy little treat to myself that never happens - so I took full advantage!  My 'free' time typically comes after the kiddos are in bed - so I took those 5 minutes of down time and relished them!

Time to get some shut-eye (perhaps after I read a few more pages of Bloom)....good night!
