Mother's Day is just around the corner...

Mother's Day has a way with sneaking up on this year I am doing things early! Here is John with his Mom Kathleen !

Here is me and my mom! FYI...this was nearly 9 years ago and I am happy to say I still fit in my gown. Actually I am about 12 pounds lighter. Woo-hoo...maybe in another 9 years I will another 9 pounds lighter. LOL

Braydon's 3rd Birthday

Braydon had his third birthday and had a blast! His good friends Jamari, Suzi, and Belle came over to enjoy the celebration with him. This is his best friend Belle. He doesn't do anything without her and they are always holding hands. His face lights up when he talks about her. (I know he is only 3, but it is just so cute how they are so caring to one another). Enjoy the slideshow!

Happy Easter!

The boys made their Easter eggs yesterday for the bunny. Grandma & Poppy Corbett sent them the kit to dye their eggs. They turned out bright and beautiful.

Homemade catapillar invitations

So, Braydon is turning three and I decided to make his invitations. It was very simple and I really just threw them together. You can make them more "perfect" if you'd like, but I like the raw edge of it.

I bought some colorful cardstock, wiggle eyes, and colorful brads. I cut 4 circles and a catapillar head with antenna. Next, I glued the wiggle eyes and punched a hole for the brads to go through. It folds up pretty nicely.

I wrote on the body of the catapillar:
Oh my goodness...How can it be? Our little Braydon is turning "three"!

I think they turned out pretty good and they cost about the same or less as picking up a package of ready made.

Update on consignment shopping

Well, I bought 35 pieces of clothing for around $88.00 for the boys. I was disappointed with the size 5 selection of shorts and pants though. On the upside I made nearly $50.00 from the older size 18-24 month clothing Braydon outgrew.

Speaking of Braydon....he is turning 3 in a couple weeks. I can't believe it. I am busy party planning. I am only inviting about 6 children...not his whole class. I just don't have the energy to do a big party. I think maybe 4 of them will show up. I am planning a dirt/bug party. Sounds funny-eh?

I am going to make a dirt cake for him with gummy worms coming out of it. He LOVES gummies. I have a few cute ideas for party favor/crafts and invitations. I'll let you know when I finalize.
