So now we’re in February. The month of LOVE, me dipping into HTV (heat transfer vinyl), 5th grade science fair and red velvet oreo’s.
So the second I heard that Red Velvet Oreo’s were coming out I made sure we got a package. And OMG yes they’re good.
Then there was the 100th day of school. I wanted to make the kids a shirt but only Jayson wanted one. Kennyth’s getting a little too old for it but I still gave him the option. Jayson loved his shirt! This is just printable iron on. Not the best but it worked in a pinch.
Time for Valentine’s Day!!! Jayson doesn’t like much candy. So I saw a similar idea to these oranges and I showed him and he wanted. I think they turned out great!
Kennyth wanted Fun Dip so I had to think of a way to use my Silhouette Cameo for this one. I think they turned out great!
My first HTV project!!! Kennyth is learning to play the recorder and I wanted to personalize his bag so he’d know which was his. I like it. I immediately fell in love with HTV and placed an order for more a few days later.
See….got my HTV and made shirts!
I really love how they turned out!
Sweets for my sweets!! Of course I used the Silhouette Cameo!!!
My sweetie took the dog to get groomed on Valentine’s Day (big gift for me…I’m simple). And he brought my favorite flowers home!! So sweet!!
Our Valentine’s Day brunch. This was suppose to be for breakfast but when you don’t have a griddle anymore and you forgot that detail yet you still promised red velvet heart pancakes for Vday you still do it. In a skillet. One at a friggin time. I had to warm the oven up and put the pancakes that were made on it to keep them warm. It worked btw….but I don’t recommend it unless you need to do it.
Next up was Kennyth’s science fair. OMG I hate these things. He did everything but use my Silhouette Cameo machine to cut things out. It turned out pretty awesome!
And we’re all caught up! I hope to post more often but it’s not so easy these days. To keep up with me day to day follow me on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
We decided to paint my office!!! Well….I actually wanted to paint it and begged the hubs. He said yes…even to the color I wanted. WHAT!!! Yes, and it’s awesome!
Took it from a hunter green to an awesome minty color! Having a lighter color in the room totally makes it easier to work in there.
Here it is! So nice!!
Then my stepson decided to move back to Texas. So we made his room into a guest/office for the hubs.
Then we made the upstairs game room into a large Lego Playroom!! We spent WAY too much money and time at Ikea!!! But the turn out was great! I’ll have another post and better pics soon on the Lego Playroom.
And that’s it for January. Not a real eventful month….we were definitely happy about that!
OMG it’s almost Christmas!!!
So we did the Black Friday shopping this year. It was fun and we over bought. But we both worked extra this year to give big! We gave about $100 worth of gifts to Toys for Tots too.
So this was our tree 3 days after Thanksgiving. Lol!!
Our lil elves!! I love the jammies! They’re from Target!
Our tree Christmas eve!! This is before Santa came!!!
And this kid nearly exploded!!! He’s wanted this for years and we finally decided to bite the bullet and do it.
The kids had a breakfast picnic upstairs.
We had a pretty good Christmas and hope you did too!!
Not much went on these 2 months.
My son Kennyth that has Crohn’s started a new therapy since the medicine they had him on wasn’t working. He wasn’t a fan of the new meds but we’re glad he chose to go with it. He’s getting IV therapy every 2 weeks for a few months then it will be every few months.
Then it was Halloween, getting my Etsy shop together for a big season, and of course Thanksgiving. Here are some pics.
I don’t remember what Derryk’s costume was called but Kennyth was a ninja (big surprise, lol) and Jayson was his first superhero, Ironman. I was a little sad about that too. Does it mean no more cute costumes?!
Here are some of the new ornaments I made this season.
And then here’s Thanksgiving!!! I made my crockpot turkey breast. Other than the 6 hours the turkey took it only took me 1 hour to make Thanksgiving lunch! Pretty awesome!!
Remember my stepson, Derryk? Well he decided to move back home. Except home wasn’t in Texas obviously…it’s now in Washington. So he sold his things and we flew him up here. The boys were so ecstatic that their big brother was moving home!
School started a few days after Derryk got here and I not only had a Fifth Grader and a Kindergartener but my baby turned 6 years old!! He wanted a SpongeBob party. So duh, that’s what I gave him.
I made the cupcakes and bought the cookies from a local cookie maker. She’s fantastic!
I also made this banner with my Silhouette Cameo. I sure do love that machine!
Here’s my lovely 6 year old!
The day after the birthday party we went to the State Fair.
These boys sure did love this ride. They rode it like 10 times!
Some donut chicken sandwich the Hubs and Stepson had. We had a few other fried foods that day but I didn’t get any pics.
We’re done! They had fun!
The BEST scone EVER! Seriously.
The next weekend we took Derryk to see Mt. Rainier.
We started at the Sunrise Visitor Center.
Look at that beautiful water!!
It was a sunny day! It was hard to get the 2 littles to look at the camera.
Big white mountain!!
OMG!! I had no idea that they were that small! There were 3 running around and I was mesmerized!
The Groves of the Patriarchs. We’d been but wanted to take Derryk.
Reflection lake. Seeing that reflection was absolutely beautiful! We’d been there once before but it wasn’t sunny. I’m glad we caught this pic!
Our last adventure in September was Downtown Seattle.
Here’s the Seattle Aquarium’s Octopus. He was very active that day. Super cool!
The Seattle Waterfront.
The famous gum wall. Ewwwwwww!!!!
That’s it! A super busy September!
