This is Brayden's first art project. Kool-aid painting! So fun! He did pretty good. He didn't even try to eat the paint brush until the end and that was OK because it was just kool-aid and water! Addy and Brayden were stained red for about a day, but they had fun and that's all that matters to me!
A few days before Halloween, we carved our pumpkins.
|Addy had fun scooping out the seeds|
|On Halloween morning we had pumpkin pancakes|
|Here is Addy in her candy corn costume before going to Daddy's work to do a little trick or treating. Brayden didn't dress up until later.|
|Addy got these silly glasses from Daddy's work|
|Brayden thought those glasses were pretty funny!|
|Here is my little bum. Isn't he cute!|
|Getting ready to go trick or treating|
|Can you tell he's just a little tired?|
|Grandma came to a couple houses with us.|
|The candy basket at this house was a piranha... Addy didn't like that.|
|Addy got her hair cut on Halloween day. She still had petroleum jelly in her hair when she got it cut, so after sleeping on it, this is what happened!|
|Addy and I made this little candy haunted house a couple of weeks before Halloween, so I had to take a picture of it.|
Addy was really excited to go to the Dinosaur museum until we got there.... The big dinosaurs with sharp teeth scared her a little. This meant that I couldn't take many pictures because I had to hold her the whole time.
|We were able to convince Addy to sit by this Dino for a little picture. When she looked at the dinosaurs claws she said, "he needs to cut his fingernails!" Brayden loved the dinosaurs!|
|One of Addy's new favorite activities is to sort buttons.|
|I found a recipe for bouncy balls on pinterest. It only bounced about a half inch off the ground...|
|and if it sat on the counter for more than a minute, this is what happened.|
|I just thought it was funny that Brayden was sleeping like this!|
I thought it was time for a post to be dedicated just to Brayden.
|Brayden loves to take baths. He would stay in there all day if he could!|
|He has also recently learned to turn the pages in his books by himself and he loves books with texture or big bright pictures.|
|It's funny how little boys just know what to do with cars and trucks. The first time I gave Addy a car to play with, she had no clue what to do with it. Oh, and Brayden said his first word! Can you guess what it is? Car!|
|Brayden loves to play peek-a-boo behind the curtains. He even tries to say the word. It's more like "ee-a-oo".|
|He has discovered drawers...and he won't stay out of them!|
|Brayden loves to laugh and play with his daddy.|
These are just a few projects I have been working on over the past few months.
|It get's pretty cold in the morning, so I decided to make Addy a robe to keep her warm. I just made my pattern using my own robe as reference. I think it turned out pretty cute and it only cost me $5 dollars to make!|
|I found a tutorial for this rug on pinterest. It was really easy, but it took a long time to make. Hopefully it will hold up for a while! It's just old 1 inch wide fabric strips tied to a rug underlay.|
|I found the turtorial for these awesome shelves on www.thehouseofsmiths.com. It is the BEST blog! I love her style! You can find all kinds of cool ideas and tutorials!|
I don't have a picture of our Alice the Fairy book because it's missing at the moment. It's one of Addy's favorite books. It's about a little girl that wants to be a fairy.
|Addy wearing her fairy wings|
|At one point in the book, Alice's mother makes cookies for Alices dad, so Alice turnes them into hers. I decided to have Addy make cookies for her daddy.|
|This is just a random picture of Brayden talking on his play phone.|
|Alice makes a crown for her daddy, but Addy made one for herself. She was so proud when she was finnished!|
|What a cute little fairy!|
|This is the best picture we could get of these two!|
|Brayden is fascinated with the straw.|
|Taking a hay ride to get to the pumpkin patch.|
|The actual choosing of the pumpkin went really fast and I wasn't able to get a picture, so I attempted to take a picture of Addy with her pumpkin on the hay ride back. She was a little distracted!|
