I was hesitant at first but honestly it has opened my eyes to a whole new world of ideas and fun things to do with my kids!
Like these:
Shaving cream bath paints!
For more pics go here .... or just scroll down to the next post ....

Today we did this:
4 C. Flour + 1/2 C Baby oil = Cloud Dough!

It has this amazing velvety texture but sticks together like wet sand

We got a cookie scoop and silicone cupcake cups and and other jello molds and Isaac went to town

Mainly he just liked to run his fingers through it and squish it in his fingers.

This little project has kept them entertained for over an hour now!
There are a HUNDRED more things on Pintrest that I am DYING to do with the boys!
There are also DYI ideas, home decorating ideas, wedding/party planning ideas, holiday decoration ideas, if your into fashion there's a whole section for that...I could go on and on!

The boys have really been goin at it lately. They have a very bi-polar relationship and it can get very frustrating. We  have found the best solution is to separate them for a while. This is not always an easy task. Today it was. I put them in separate bath tubs and set them up with some finger paints made out of shaving cream and food coloring! It gave me a good hour of  peaceful, non-fighting time!

Gary's colors

Gary loved painting everything. including himself!

Isaac's colors

Isaac was a much neater painting.

It was fun to see how differently they painted and how their personalities came out in that.
Gary is messy and all over. He mixed his colors almost instantly. He put some in his water so that his water would turn colors.
Isaac was more meticulous. He kept his colors separate and neater. He didn't like getting his water colored.
It was a fun experiment that we will definitely be doing again!

If a picture is worth a thousand words...

.....this is  very wordy post!

My sister came and stayed for a week and her 18month old is TOO CUTE!

Some Random pics of the happenings goin on
Ashley is clearly very comfy when her daddy has her!

The boys playing nicely together.

Isaac decided Ashley was missing her cowgirl hat.

Gary decided Ashely needed a leaf hat

Every year Greg takes the boys to Monster Jam. It's become quite fun "boys day out" tradition.
The Hotwheels truck


Notice anything missing?! .... How about the WHEEL!!!

Meanwhile Ashley and I went shopping.
No, none of what she's wearing I purchased that day, this is just what she wore to go shopping in.

We've been getting some snow recently. It's been quite fun and snow makes me happy.
Greg was watching a football game and Ashley was in the swing. She started talking so I turned to look at her and she is looking right at the TV. It looked like she was really getting into it.

Meanwhile, the boys were outside playing in the snow.

When they were done they asked if they could put their mini snowmen in the freezer.
Why not?!

And there you have it. Random ramblings as to what's goin on in our neck of the woods!

Ashley's Swingin Time

Ashley discoverd there are animals that hang above her head.
This was after the "conversation" had died down a bit.

She is getting to be more annimated which, of course, is fun!

New Years and Blessing

So recently my "happy song" has been Toby Keith's Red Solo Cup. 
And because my family was here for Ashley's blessing, Greg had this awesome idea for New Year's Eve;
We decorated our Red Solo cups!

Gary is now a Sunbeam so he got his very own Book of Mormon to take to primary. He loves to sit, or lay, and read it!
