Several years ago, the girls each made an art box. Sunshine was in preschool at the time and coming home with plenty of projects and crafts every day—which ended up either on the fridge or in her room. If she saw me sneaking it into the recycling, it was World War 3. Every project was […]
While Sunshine was sewing her felt notebook case, Lily was also doing a sewing project, though a much simpler project. We found a cute picture of a kitten online and used that to create a pattern for her to sew her own. We began by printing the kitten picture and cutting it out. Then I […]
Lily’s 5th birthday party was on Friday, and she’s been talking about it for months. Hers is the last birthday in our family birthday season, which kicks off with Sunshine’s in February. Lily has been very patient, but she was very excited to finally have HER special day arrive. Since it’s usually nice in May, […]

On Friday, we finally had the chance to drive up there and visit because my sister-in-law and her girls were camping there for the week. We sat on the beach playing with the crabs, building sandcastles, and watching the […]

All the things I didn’t have as a girl with two brothers. I’m thoroughly enjoying the girliness now, and having fun watching Sunshine and Lily […]
Lily recently had fun making a cute, “glittertastic” butterfly craft. She used two foam butterflies (we cut hers out from foam sheets, but you can also buy them pre-cut), a pipe cleaner, glue, and various sparkles and sequins for decorations. 1. Assemble art supplies. 2. Glue sparkles, sequins, pompoms, and googly eyes to the foam […]
