We're Going to See Mickey Mouse!

So it's not Disney World (though one day we will go make it there!), but it's the next best thing, right? We're headed to see Disney on Ice: Mickey and Minnie. We (meaning Trevin) are BIG Mickey Mouse fans, so we're so excited! Trevin started jumping up and down when I told him. It was the cutest thing! Ty thought I should have waited a while to tell the big news since it won't be until the end of April, but I couldn't wait to see him smile!

Valentine's Day Jars

I needed a gift for Trevin to give his teachers for Valentine's Day that was unique and special. I've seen painted mason jars before and thought they were sooo cute. So I decided to give it a try. Here's what I came up with!

I wish I would have used a different paint that wouldn't chip so easy. Any suggestions?

Sunday Picnic

Today was beautiful! My wonderful husband suggested we go to the park for a picnic and some play time. So after church we packed lunch and headed to the park! The boys had a great time playing. Today's weather made me anxious for spring. Here are a couple pics of my sweet boys playing.

Scissors are for PAPER!

So I get an email from Trevin's teacher informing me that Trevin decided to cut his hair in art center today. I'm not too stressed because she said it didn't look that bad. Fortunately he has a little "Backstrom" in him. Our hair grows super fast. When I call my sis to tell her, she comments with a "Hmmm... Like mother, like son." She was real quick to remind me of when I CHOPPED my hair. I looked like a boy. (My poor mom having to tag me around looking like that!) Do you notice the bald spot on top? (I know you're thinking, Looks like he cut the front too. Nope, he inherited the Plunkett Cowlick.) His response to the situation: "Ms. Shelley will be so happy when it grows back." He was also terribly upset when I told him his scissor privileges were gone.

Project Overload

I know that some of you bloggers put me to shame when it comes to completing projects. But hey, I work full time and have two precious kiddos at home. So to complete 3 projects within a weekend is major progress for me! =) Here's a look at my latest work!!
