Introducing Baby Carlie

This is what I've been working on for the past 36 weeks...

Yesterday we were so blessed to have Carlie join our family.
She was our Valentine surprise born 4 weeks early at 4lbs. 13oz. & 18"

Valentine Can

This year for my son's 5th grade class they were give #10 size cans to decorate for their Valentine's party next week.
He informed me that they are having a decorating contest and the awards will be for things like, the prettiest, the most unique, the funniest, the ugliest, etc.

When he heard the ugliest he decided right away that he wanted to make his into a trash can.
After all, it already kinda looks like a trash can.

Valentine Crafts & Treats

Last week we were contacted by to be featured on their Valentine Crafts for Kids post & we were so excited to share the following post with them.

Go check out their site for some fun kid crafts for Valentines.

Since I've been in the midst of a difficult pregnancy I haven't been able to do much crafting this season, so I'm going to share the projects we did last year.
Lame I know, but it's the best I can do right now :)

Dinner Cook-Off Competition

This week we had a fun activity with the youth at our church.  It was a dinner cook-off competition.
Each class was in charge of coming up with a meal, cooking it and decorating the room for the meal.
One class of girls decided on a garden theme and this is what they came up with...

A garden arch with the food set up buffet style.

On the menu they decided on lemon pepper chicken, twice baked potatoes, rice balls, rolls, ceasar salad, lemon bars & cran-apple juice.
Each of the young women was in charge of a food item and they did a great job making it!


Remember this post where we made these plaques for our youth for Christmas?

or this post on Rachel's blog with more pictures of the plaques?

Well we've both received emails inquiring about the size of the boards, fonts used & even asking for the SVG files to cut the letters & I'm happy to say, we now have another blog post to link to.
