Cookin' Up A FairyTale....

Well here are the two most precious little people in my life, all dressed up for their Hallelujah Party at school today! Aren't they just the sweetest??? This is not actually what they will be for Halloween or Trunk or Treat but just some of their playful outfits that they occasionally dress up in but I thought it was cute for daycare and I don't have to worry about them totally destroying them before they get home! :)

We FOUND Nemo!!!

I took the kids to Disney on Ice "Finding Nemo" Wednesday nite with my cousin Amy and her little boy Andrew who is about two months younger than Chandler. They absolutely loved it! Maddie had to have a Nemo cup full of slush and Chandler picked out the Shark and poor Andrew dumped a whole cup of slush in his lap during the show! We all left wearing tyedyed clothing, Thanks to Nemo and the Shark but it's a cute little souvenir. I didn't get any good pictures of the show or the kids... but thought it would be funny to show the attempts I made! Thursday morning when I dropped the kids off at daycare, Chandler ran to his Pre-K teacher and said, "We Found Nemo!!!!"

Wall Mural

The mural is painted in Hillevi's (mother-in-law) hallway where they enter from the garage into their kitchen area. She had been begging me to do this very mural in their foyer waaaaaayyyyy up high on a big wall overlooking their stairs but i'm afraid of heights and said no. So last week she came in and told me she found a place for it and when could I do it.. ya'll know she's OCD and she meant, can you do it RIGHT NOW! I told her no again but that I would go ahead and get the supplies for when I do get the chance. Well since I'm off on Wednesdays, it seemed to be perfect! It took me about 3 1/2 hours to do the tree, leaves, bird and the words. Then last night, I went back and added the rest of the grass, a squirrel, the worm in the birds mouth and the detail to the leaves and it took another 2 1/2 hours. I must say, i'm very pleased with the outcome. And yes Hillevi absolutely loves it too! And i've already got two more murals that i'm planning on doing for some different people in the area!!
