Snowflake canvas ornaments

Pin It
Hello everyone! 
Hope you are all ready for Christmas, it's only 1 week away!!
We were quite busy this past week. 
My mom flew down from Utah last Tuesday to visit for a week, and we were so excited to have her here.
One of the main reasons why we wanted her to come down at this time, was to get her over to Disneyland to see all the Christmas decorations. She's a big Disney fan, and has never seen all the Christmas decor.
Well, needless to say, she loved it!
It was also perfect timing, because we found out we were pregnant the day before she came, so we were able to tell her in person.
(We actually wrapped up a little box and put the pregnancy test inside. She screamed so loud when she opened it!)   :) 
Among all of the fun things we were able to squeeze in during the week, one of them was these little snowflake ornaments.
My mom, my son, and myself all made one.

I have an announcement!!!

Pin It
 We are so excited to announce that we're having another baby!!!!!
If you want to check out the tutorial I posted on how to make the chalkboard, click here.
I have of course let my son use the chalkboard to draw on as much as he wants, but
I have been waiting to use it for this exact purpose. A pregnancy tracker!
I feel like I've been waiting for what seems like forever, (it's only been like 3 months since I made it)...patience is a virtue!
So I was so excited to finally bust it out.
I will be using the chalkboard throughout my pregnancy to track the weeks, my stats, and the size of my belly :)
So stay tuned in the coming weeks!!

A wrap-up of our week

Pin It
Hello everyone!
I hope you are all enjoying the last moments of your weekend :)
I don't have any crafts or recipes tonight, I just feel like I wanted to share our fun-filled week.
I will be posting a craft in the next couple of days though, so stay tuned!

My son wrote his letter to Santa.
This is all he wants for Christmas...
"A Hawkeye bow and arrow"
He still loves all things 'Avengers'
He's been asking for one for like 2 months now!

We had a big day in our house yesterday. We got our son a twin sized bed!
His little toddler bed just wasn't cutting it anymore.
We picked this up over at IKEA, and we LOVE it!
ODDA Bed frame with storage IKEA
By using the storage under the bed we were able to throw away a broken ugly looking plastic tote, and he has so much more floor space.
Now unto decorating the rest of his room with 'big boy' decor!
I'll be checking out ideas from Pinterest for sure :)
How was your week?

Snowflake canvas art

Pin It
Well welcome December!
I just have to say, I love the sparkly-ness of this craft. 
It seems like at Christmas time everything has a little sparkle to it :)
My son and I made these up the other day to add some more Christmas decor to our home.
It's a fun craft to do with kids because they can just go nuts with the paint :)
He loved it!
