Mirror, Mirror on the wall, who's the worst blogger of them all? I mean come on Gina, 7 days and no post? That's pretty lame. I can't help it, this pregnancy is putting me in a creative funk.
Shake it off, shake it off.
Let's see what's been going on in the past week over here. Well for one, my husband was in Hawaii for the week (how lucky, huh?) so I tried to keep the girls' schedule as busy as possible so that by 8 at night they're more than ready for bed.
After realizing that our craft drawer was totally pathetic with it's leftover streamers, non-working glue sticks and a couple of cotton balls we decided to replenish our goods. While shopping we stumbled upon window chalk/paint. Hmmm, painting the patio doors sounded like a good winter project right?
Well, it turned out that it was a perfect winter project.
Mia is turning into my little Picasso. She loves to paint, color and draw.
The glass paint was a hit...although it didn't always make it on the glass
Let's see what else.....we made some pretty cool candle holders out of assorted beans and glue (thanks for the idea Tessa and Sienna) for our Aunt Katrina's birthday.
It was a sticky situation, to say the least
We played dress up
We baked some Valentine cookies
Which, btw, do you know how hard it is to convince this little girl that you can't eat the dough! Very hard.
In fact when I had my back turned she even snuck an M&M out of a cooling cookie. Mama Mia!
And to really spice things up a bit, they ate their oatmeal breakfast in their room. It's amazing what a change of location can do to a toddler's morning attitude.
Let's see what else....oh, Bella heaved some precious cargo
And before we knew it, Eugene was home again. Yay! And after bombarding him with about a 3 hour run-down of everything we did this past week, we all slept together, all 4.25 of us.
