Catching Up With Pics

So a friend complained that I've only "blogged little snippets lately" . . .

here's a recap of the past month.

We made Rainbow Pops

We've had a sleepover in our living room
while watching the ABC / Wal Mart family movie

I'm loving the Baxter Family
thanks to Karen Kingsbury,
my mama, her cousin, & many of my friends.

We've  had fun with these Bible Verse Scrambles
from a friend.
We were good about doing one each week.
Seems like it's not just my blog that I've slacked on
but also with these.

We've definitely had our share of reasonably priced,
healthy dinners.
wink wink

This would be a great verse for us to revisit!
It's so hard to be patient w/ your brother.

We used our Rainbow Rice
to make Eye Spy bottles.

Jacob enjoys a good watermelon seed spitting contest
every now & then.
However, it is very hard to admit he didn't win.

because Connor did!

I really would love a fire pit!
The boys enjoyed roasting marshmellos.

Doesn't an afternoon of waterplay in the back yard for the kiddos
sound amazing & relaxing for the mamas?!

You know,
we can just sit on the porch enjoying lunch
and chit chat.

Surely everyone will get along wonderfully
and we won't have to intervene much.

I was so WRONG on that one.
We did have fun though
and the children will all remember what fun they had.

Tonight was picnic dinner
in the dark.

I've been working on some fun birthday projects for our family.
This fun wreath takes WAY more balloons than I thought it would.
It may have been cheaper to buy the $50 one
that I saw at the fru fru shop at the beach.

I'll have both of these ready in time
for a special boy's 9th birthday NEXT WEEK!
