Small Wonders Wednesday

When the twins were born I knew I wanted some kind of tag for their car seats  that would let people know I Really did not want them touched.   After doing some research I found these at Mamabears,  they say exactly what needs to be said.  Now if I can just get people to read them.    These would make great gift for new or expecting Mommy's.

Fantastic Friday ~ Finished Object Friday

Hooray for me, I actually got  a craft project done.   I needed a new patriotic wreath for my porch, so here it is.   Now to get the rest of the porch and patio ready for summer,  come back warm weather.   I am linking up with Chari's Finished Object Friday.  Go over there and see the cute apron she made.  Piper got one for Christmas and thinks it is pretty neat.

Forgotten post ~ Piper is 4

Back in January amidst the craziness of the twins being in the hospital my big girl turned 4.   I just realized I never posted any pictures of her party.  We came home for a couple of day from the hospital and had a little party with her NeeNee, Nana and Grandpa.   And of course since she is a princess is was Cinderella theme.

 The table set for a princess
 So excited she got her princess bike
 And she is off
 This huge four was on the wall at the hospital, it was to tell you what floor you were on.  We passed is everyday going to our room and decided it made a great photo prop.
Opening present on her actual birthday in Brenna's room at the hospital.   Amid the craziness she did have a great birthday.   I love you Piper J,  you are a beautiful princess.

Mommy's Moments Monday

I don't know about you but this Mommy is ready for summer.  I am so happy for the warm weather,  don't get me wrong I love snow and some cold weather but my favorite season of all is Summer.  I guess it is true "You can take a girl from the South but you can't take the South out of the girl."  This is very true when it comes to weather.  
  This past weekend I worked on our Summer Bucket List,   I used ideas I found on other peoples list and I also added things I knew we wanted to or were going to be doing.  Our family enjoys reading the list and seeing just how many things we can accomplish.  What about you?  Do you make a bucket list or do you have any fun adventures planned for the summer?

Small Wonders Wednesday

 Piper was so excited about the Tupperware NeeNee got her.
 Just a few photo's of the past week.   This week it is a "Small Wonder" that I am even getting a post done,  it has been busy around here.
 Grumpy and his kiddo's.
 My Mother's Day cake Piper insisted Eric buy.  But as you can tell it had a mishap before it even  made it out of the grocery store.  Piper told me "I got you a cake because I love you."  That made it taste even better.
Blake and Brenna love the nice weather we are finally having,  they really like their stroller.

Small Wonders Wednesday

We interrupt this normally scheduled program for Grandparents.  
 The small wonder for today is Play-doh,  it keeps kids very entertained.   Thanks to Uncle Matt and Aunt Beka for Piper's Cinderella set,  she loves it.
We love having my parents come and visit.   The kiddos are already spoiled.

Fantastic Friday

Good morning and Fantastic Friday to all of you.   It really is a good day for me since I am finally feeling better,  as you can tell I totally missed Wednesdays post.   I did not even realize it was Wednesday and I should have had a post until is was way too late and I did not even care.   So hope you all will forgive me for being human. :)
   As you all know Mother's Day is fast approaching and I am in need of some fun and easy craft ideas to use for my Bible Club.   If any of you have a cute project you have made  or a link to something you think I might be able to use please let me know.  I think this sickness has fried my brain and I am drawing a blank when it comes to ideas.  
   I hope all of you have a Fantastic Friday and a wonderful fun filled weekend.
