Toddler + Shaving Cream =


yes, we have been spending a lot of time at home.  and just to add to our crazy little house, I let my 21 month old have a shaving cream match in the kitchen.  ellie –1   kitchen – 0


we were all home the other day and decided to do some crafts in the kitchen.  Ellie had a ball with the shaving cream, as you can see.  Bradley stuck his hands in his tray and starting crying.  He looked at me and said, “I don’t like it!”

I think he’ll stick with water colors for now…


We have filled our days with some major arts and crafts.  Some of this…


finger paint for ellie, water colors for bradley, and a lot of watching the big kids by grace.  I love it!


I love this sweet little thing in a bumbo…


It doesn’t get much cuter!


Bradley made snowmen with a  paper towel roll the other day.  They turned out quite cute!  Of course I didn’t get a picture of the final product, I was lucky to snap this one!  When we aren’t crafting, you will often find the kiddos doing a lot of this…


Elmo, Angry Birds, Super Why, Read Aloud Books, apps, apps, and more apps, how in the world did we survive without the ipad just a month ago??


Or we may just have a pow wow on the floor, surrounded by Cheez-its, a spit up covered baby, a boppy, and the play gym, my house has exploded children and baby toys and will never, ever be the same.

Just a quick update…Ellie hated getting her eye drops for pink eye.  Especially when we had to give them every two hours for two days.  She seems to be better, but they both are still working on some yucky colds.  Lord, spring will not come soon enough!

Oh, I remember giving Natalie the shave cream and finger paints...we waited until the summer...there were a lot of "hose baths" then.

The snowman painting? Super smart.
