Old Time Photos

Matthew had a blast- Sophia was sleepy and therefore would have none of it. Maybe we'll try again next year for her-or maybe well wait until she's 4...

Happy Birthday Sophia

It's been more than a month since we celebrated with "Red, White, and Blue, Sophia's 2!"
I was on a no blogging kick then...

but here's to remembering that fun weekend when we celebrated, and that AMAZING Day when she was born! :)

dance with me

Sophia requested the music on this morning, and then told Matthew "Bubbie, hold me like a 'frincess and dance me."

(breathe, hold back the sweet tears)

'Dear Lord, may every man that encounters this sweet and lovely girl as she grows recognize her for the sweet princess that she is, may the man you have made for her dance her through her grown life and care for her in every way.'

nasty little buggar

when I spied this from the back door, I was ready to seal up the door until winter... luckily we have a 'hunter-gatherer' here who ran for the windex and spray bleach. this huge spider didn't drop dead, he ran away, but hopefully he found a peaceful resting place shortly after.... ICK. I don't even think you can fathom the hugeness of this guy from the picture. It certainly doe not do him justice, but I was NOT getting any closer for a picture. no way.

learning about density

It floats, but when it fills with water, it starts to sink. How can we fix it? "With tape?"

better solution found to stop the filling up, and then "it needs a 'repellar' you know, a thing on the back to go round and round." luckily the sour cream container was an acceptable solution.

*Matthew chose his boat parts fro the recycling bin after a D&D night... I myself would have went for the empty two liter, but Matthew likes the color green.


Have you seen the new Silhouette machines? no? well get theee over to grosgrain for the SILHOUETTE MACHINE GUEST GIVEAWAY!!!!
These machines look amazing! there seems to be so much you can do with them for endless creative fun! I'm just imagining the extremely fun projects Matthew and I could cook up together- especially since he's so into this crafty/ learning phase right now!

If I had a camera like Carrie's.... I could do this for-eva. :P

Though I'm sure I still haven't managed to find a deal good enough to talk Erik into spending the money on it right now....
