Sun Catcher

Hayden and I got a sun catcher craft kit at the store to make together. He picked a cupcake to make as he said cupcakes are "yummy".

We had so much fun with this project and he worked very hard to make sure the pellets went into the correct spot. He just got impatient waiting for everything to melt together and then cool down.

As you can tell, it turned out beautiful!! It's hanging in the kitchen window for everyone to see.

Hot Summertime Fun!!

I remember being a kid how much fun it was to run through the sprinklers and play with the garden hose on a hot summer day. Instead of just a plain garden hose, I found this cute little caterpillar that has wiggly arms and squirts water at Wal-Mart.

I decided to get the camera out and take some pictures of everyone playing in the water. Will and Matt at first didn't get in the water but once they saw how much fun Lily and Hayden were having, it was only a short time before they went and got their swimming trunks on too!!

Everything is OK

I was notified that I haven't posted on my blog for several weeks and once it was pointed out to's true. Sorry!! I've been a bad blogger.

Nothing is wrong but actually things have been fantastic!! We've been busy with summer.

In June we had a week long visit with my sister-in-law, brother-in-law and nephew. We have such a good time when we're all together plus my sister-in-law is one of my best friends. We're a lot alike but she's the blond-haired Danish version of me...LOL!! They took Will back to Chicago with them for 2 1/2 weeks and then we went up for a long weekend to stay with them and bring Will back home. I love going to Chicago.

I've been working full work weeks too. Things have been hectic and tense there but I really think it's all going to work out to be ok. It's a job that provides me the availability to go and earn money and the freedom to leave the job behind when I walk out the doors and that's the whole reason why I work the hours I do. I'm home during the day with the kids and I don't have to put them in daycare.

The Lia Sophia jewelry is going fantastic!! I've had several parties and have been able to earn almost everything I had on my wish list. It's so much fun!!

More things are on the horizon too...the final days of summer doing fun things before school starts again on August 12, Scrapology, St. Louis and heading to Chicago again with my Aunt to take Lily to the American Girl store.

Sorry there's been no posts but everything is ok.

I'll be posting pics this week of some of the fun we've been having this summer.
