Frisbees and Dirt

...it amused me when i got home yesterday to find the boys sitting together on the front planter wall eating their afternoon snack off of frisbee plates + snack cup combos... 

Notice the color matching of the frisbee to the bowls? cracked me up... 
...especially because in a blink they go from color matching and civilized to...


...sitting in another planter bed digging and throwing dirt...


...and using plant stands as swords and sneaking tastes of mud.

Weekend Recap - Bring on Spring!

This weekend was full, just like always.
The theme for the weekend was definitely "bring on spring"...

Saturday was spent cleaning and at the boys' current favorite park.

Just lounging on the swings...

And playing with sticks!

Most of Sunday was spent at Meemaw's making Easter Cookies.

Both boys helped mix and roll out the dough, cut the cookies, and decorate them, too.  It was only after he realized how delicious the sugar sprinkles were... and refused to stop shoveling them into his mouth, that Gavin had to be physically removed from the area. (haha, poor kid...)

Momma had a big fail, when she didn't understand how the convection oven worked... so we had to make a second pizza after this one burned!

Gavin was a great sport, trying on a dress Meemaw is working on...

The cookies turned out very pretty, and tasty, too!

Dunno...
Gavin found a bunch of cups in the pantry... wanted to drink out of all of them.  I have a feeling we'll probably have a matching photo of him doing this in approximately 19 years (no less!).

To end the weekend (and as part of the #40bagsin40days) Ethan and Momma finally wished on the wishbone that's been sitting on the counter for months...

2nd Birthday Party Planning - Begins!

...if you follow me on pinterest, you can probably make a vvvveerrryyy educated guess on the theme for Gavin's 2nd Birthday Party.  I've been pinning for months... just hadn't really done anything for the actual party, until this morning.


First purchase for the party - red food coloring! Since we can't really use most food coloring available in stores (due to stupid cross contamination... we're looking at you Wilton!!!! grrrr), I was so thrilled when a friend on facebook "liked" the Color Garden page.  They make all natural food coloring! 

So... we're going to give it a go... and hope that the red is RED!!!!
