We are gearing up for Valentine’s Day already and decided to decorate some cookies as one of our projects for today! This may be Avett’s favorite “art” project ever!!! Everyone ate a lot of icing and sprinkles….not sure that anyone actually ate a cookie. : )
We’ve had a nice quiet weekend around the house this week…so we decided to make some pumpkin squares together! Cody helped with gathering ingredients and measuring…Avett, you were quality control on the ingredients. I forgot how much you two liked pumpkin straight from the can! Then, Avett found his glasses again while playing with the play dough. I love these glasses.Love you guys-
My sweet perfect little man. I love your daring sense of fashion. : ) Last week Dad brought home a large box from school for you guys to play in. It has needed several duct tape repairs, but you guys are still having a blast with it. Tonight it was a “boat”…you drank your milk while “looking at the stars”. Love you guys.
This week CeeCee has been trying to fit is as many Christmas projects as possible. Poor Avett…you are so NOT interested in the arts and crafts, but at least it keeps Justyce and Cody out of your hair while you play with your toys! : )
So, mommy has had a really packed schedule and dropped off on her weekly photo shoot. However, I recently cleaned off all of the pictures from my cell phone and had so much fun seeing all of the cute pictures that I had forgotten about on there! This post has a few of my oldie but goodie favorites from the cell phone!
We are so excited for fall! Today Renee “NayNay”, Andy, and Levi “Pea Pie” came over to spend the afternoon and carve pumpkins! Dada and Andy started off the carving! Cody, you woke up late from your nap and needed some extra snuggle time with Nana to get ready for the festivities… Once the top of the pumpkins were removed you guys were ready to scoop out the insides! Levi and Avett worked on scooping out their pumpkins together… You guys were quite the pumpkin carving crew! Cody, you thought fitting the lid back on was just like working with your puzzles! Nay Nay drew the faces on our pumpkins as a guide for us to carve while all the kids played on the playground… And the carving began!!!The pumpkins turned out great! We carved a kitty pumpkin for our house!The finished product!Looking forward to a fun fall with you kiddos! We had such a nice day with the Spinks family!
This post is dedicated to CeeCee our amazing nanny. This week is National Nanny Week and we couldn’t have hit the jackpot anymore than we have. We are so lucky to have you and you and Justyce will alway be a part of our family. Much love to both of you!
This week our most amazing super nanny CeeCee took you guys and Justyce on the deck to make some good old fashioned mud pies!
Avett, you weren’t quite sure how you felt about getting your hands dirty at first… Cody, you immediately thought this mud pie thing was a great idea! CeeCee found a worm in the mud!!! After a while you warmed up to the idea of playing in the mud, Avett… You even helped CeeCee pour the mud into the water table! Justyce became quite the little mud pie chef! The three of you worked so well together preparing a delicious mud pie meal! Cody, Justyce had a few tips to give you on your mud pie techniques…here she is telling you all about it! : ) You were so proud of your creations you offered me a bite… And then you actually took a real bite, Avett….and I don’t think it was what you expected. After all the fun CeeCee got you all cleaned up and ready for nap time. Love you guys!
