One year filled with joy.

Forts and other miscellaneous

As the girls get older it’s been so much fun watching their creativity grow too. On rainy days when we stay inside we decided to build a fort. It was so much fun to make and watch the girls cuddle in it watching movies and putting all their stuffed animals in with them.

It’s days like these that make life so full of joy.

Their favorite thing to do is to get all the pillows and toys and blankets and make a pile of it on the ground and then jump on top or borrow to the bottom of the pile. It’s a amazing world of imagination.  I wish I was half as creative as they are.

The park is one of the most visited places by us. Here in this small Midwest town there isn’t much to do and it’s often a struggle to find a activity for the girls to do that doesn’t involve spending money. But slowly and surely I’m learning how to be creative (can you tell this is the theme of this post so far lol). Sometime this week I want to paint with Zoey. I saw this awesome idea a friend on instagram did with these mason jars and Zoey is finally old enough to use a paintbrush so we will see how it goes. I would love to hear your activities you do with your toddlers and infants at home or in town.

One of our favorite places to go to is the Library. Zoey found this adorable duck there and wouldn’t let it out of her site. And now I’m on a quest to find a duck or better yet a pattern to make one. I’ve been obsessed lately with making stuffed animals and I’m determined to try.

Well as always this is a post is full of my ramblings. 😉 Here’s to a wonderful start of a beautiful week. Xo

Home again home again.

Our Vacation is over but we brought back so many sweet memories…and some summer colds. We made the 14 hour drive back home in one day! Which if you have a toddler and a infant  you know that’s quite the accomplishment- or at least with us it is. We are so sick of the car!!  but the 40 minute drive to see the grandparents doesn’t seem as long as it used to lol. 😉

Monday was kicked off with a huge headache a horrible summer cold for me. Not the way I was planning to spend my day- so glad that mac and cheese is so easy to make. 😉 That day seemed to drag on forever with Joel gone at work. But when he got home he surprised me with a Vanilla Chai latte from Starbucks.  He’s a keeper. ♡♡♡

So today is our day to unpack our suitcases (yes… We’ve been home for three days and we’re still digging in suitcases to find clothes lol. Such is life.)

image

I’m so excited to get the house back in order so I can start planning Poets first birthday party.
I have this fun idea in my head and I just hope I can make it come alive. I’m going to go garage sale seeking and thrift store shopping to start finding the things I need. 😉 I love preparing for my girls birthdays.

The lovely thing coming home from vacation is a empty fridge (we always try to not get groceries a week before going so by the time we leave we have nothing that will spoil in it.) So yesterday night after my hubby got groceries I washed out the fridge.  And yes my hubby loves doing the food shopping I’ll give the list of thing we need- he’s pretty awesome. Since shopping with two babies isn’t that easy especially when they don’t have a double cart  that is safe enough in the grocery stores here for a infant- except at Hyvee. But then even then they last maybe 20 minuets sitting in there at the store before having enough.
When we do have to go I make sure to only shop at Hyvee because they have a caribou coffee that sales cookies and smoothies which holds them over a little bit.

Today besides getting the house in order and suitcases unpacked we are going to try food art. 😉 my Toddler has been kind of picky lately with her eating habits and a friend suggested I could make pictures with her food and that it has helped her toddler so we are going to start that adventure today and hopefully it will be a success.  I mean who doesn’t love having your food make pictures. ♡ so here’s to the many cups of coffee I will consume today and the little adventures and tasks we will accomplish. Wishing everyone a lovely day.
