She's Crafty

What can you do with a bunch of
candlesticks, glass jars and
super glue from a $1 Store?

Make darling vases,
and decorative bowls...

Actual product in use

Same $1 store carries
plates and other misc items.

Fresh coat of spray paint,
and we have $2 plates for our
dessert buffet at the
Halloween Party.
So cute, and so easy!

(Thanks Dorothy for
the glass ideas)


Happy Birthday Andy Boy!

I can't believe my Andydrew is 12! I am still in denial, I don't know what I will do when I see him pass the sacrament. It is going way too fast!

We celebrated his birthday by letting him and Chloe play hooky. We headed off to Matt's Big Breakfast in Downtown Phoenix, it was good, but no better than 5 and Diner, or Mimi's Cafe. I wouldn't go back with the kids, just because of the cost. They enjoyed it though, so it was totally worth it!

Then we headed over to the Library so I could pick up a culture pass for the Children's Museum. Luckily there was one left. We spent almost 5 hours there. They had a blast. We came home, and had a late lunch, early dinner of wings (Andy was excited). Then we just lazed the night away. Andy played with his new computer game, Chloe was sick :( Buffy went to a friend's house, and Coop terrorized Macy. The usual.

I made a Cookies & Cream cake. Andy wasn't crazy abut it, so I feel bad. I should have stuck with his favorite yellow cake with chocolate frosting.

I think he had a good day. I loved hanging out with him, and was thankful for the hugs he et me steal. I love my Andyboy so much, I don't know what I would do without him!

Children's Museum

She ruled the kitchen,
it got ugly when the others tried to get in her way...

She couldn't be any cuter if she tried!

LOVE this pic of Victor,
such a sweet boy!

The kids could have played with this for hours!

Loved this,
was so glad they cooperated so we could get a
shot of them in it!
