Noah's Ark

This week's Bible story is Noah's Ark.  I plopped the kids down in the garage with some magazines and had them pick out pairs of animals to glue into their arks.  I must say, they made some very interesting selections.  hehe!  When they were finished, Aidan asked to add a Noah so they cut out a couple men and we added a white beard.  A fun and silly afternoon project!

Cereal Attempt #2

SUCCESS!!!

We tried cereal a couple weeks ago and Sydney Grace was NOT impressed.  I randomly decided to give it another try tonight and she seemed to really enjoy it. 

I'm not sure what was harder for me, Sydee Grace being old enough to try cereal or Hanni and Ai being big enough to feed her.  They are so awesome with her, she's been incredibly blessed with the best big brother and big sister!





In this last one she was looking at Aaron waiting on him to give her another bite. 



Oh, and that high chair is getting a new cover as soon as I get to Hobby Lobby and buy some fabric!!

Stool Revamp!

We have these two plain jane, honey colored stools that once served as plant stands but the kids have used them for the last couple years when they help me cook (almost nightly).

I've been really needing a creative outlet lately so I decided to revamp them.  I've tried to keep the colors in my kitchen/dining room bright and cheery!   The main colors are black and red and I've added some aqua and lime green as well.  (These also happen to be the colors I chose for my fiestaware!)  We had a half gallon or more of black paint in the garage so I was going to just paint them black but then I decided to add in some color.  Polka dots for the first one (Hannah's) and I'm thinking I may do stripes for Aidan's.


Alrighty...blogger is being goofy so I'll have to try to add the before pic later on.

My Dancing Girl

Hanni started dance last week and was really excited to show off what she's learned so far!!  Please forgive the shotty video quality, I used Aaron's cell phone.

4 months!!

Our sweet baby is just days away from being FOUR months old!!  She is growing like a weed and jabbering up a storm.  She loves to snuggle and is the most consistent little stinker I've ever seen!  She takes a very short nap in the morning, a little bit longer one in early afternoon and a long nap in the evenings.  She is ready for bed by 8 pm and wants to be fed, played with and swaddled by 9 at the latest.  She has not deviated from that "schedule" pretty much since birth.  Her big brother and big sister love to talk and play and "love" on her.  They love her SO much and she's been blessed with awesome siblings.

Here are a few pics from our little photo shoot today...
