This was an early birthday present for Katie. She had her own umbrella that broke and we threw it away and she really missed it, so I got this on a deal and saved it until now. She loved it—and even invited Owen and me to color with her. (If you’re curious, it’s the ALEX Toys Craft Super Sweet Umbrella.)
When you’re trying to use what you have but the presents are too wide for all 12 birthday bags you have…you have the kids decorate pics to glue on. #reducereuserecycle #littlekidswontcaretheyjustwantthepresents
A matching dress to my leggings! She LOVED it!!
I finally decided to do this project today.
Katie put her skirt on right away (it actually even matched what she was wearing) and they LOVED the candy in the bunny egg.
After all these years I finally have the perfect outfit to wear with my Grandma Smith’s purple pearls. She loved her costume jewelry…
Granny Lin sent the kids some Easter treats… These are chair covers that Owen immediately co-opted for a hat.
When you’re cleaning your bedroom and you happen upon a Christmas present that you left inside something else so it’s like Christmas all over again.
I belong to the birthday club for the kids so when mail came with Owen’s name on it, he was excited. It was a $3 coupon and a certificate for a crown and birthday balloon. When we turned it in, he also got a plush and a book!
He knew exactly what he wanted so it didn’t take long. He looked so grown up waiting in line…
Unfortunately we were one day early for the coupon (of course!) so daddy bought it for him and he lucks out with an extra birthday present.
In a new outfit from Gramma Jean!
She did it! She finished Rapunzel’s castle!!
The first was a Christmas present from Grauntie Marge—a supermarket!
The second one was a present from Gramma Jean—Arial!
Owen’s Lego Mixel Max (a bigger monster Mixel built with all three packs of the set) with assorted evil minions he created from the remaining pieces.
“Okay, now take a smiling picture!”
I can’t remember what movie they watched but they both wanted popcorn for dinner—Grauntie Marge had given Katie an ENTIRE BOX of stovetop popcorn so they were super excited about that. So we let them eat popcorn for dinner. What a treat! Katie also enjoyed her new mermaid tail blanket from Gramma Jean!
