Playroom Update

I have been working on giving our playroom a much needed facelift.  He has slowly progressed over the last year. 

This weekend we finished painting an old dining room table.  It was quite the job and took many coats of paint.  it is now done and we love it!  We put it in the center and it will be used for arts, crafts, games, etc.

We have a fourth chair that can be pulled over, but it is currently at our computer.

I took out the coffee table that was in front of the couch. It was not needed and taking up a lot of floor space.  We added this super soft rug and now the kids LOVE it!  It is a great place to watch movies!

I made this garland out of scrap pieced of fabric that I have had for years.  I love how much color it adds to the space.

I am also planning on getting a new large bookcase to hold toys and maybe a rug for under the table.  For now, we are loving it!

Breakfast with Santa

We always enjoy the Breakfast with Santa that our church has every year! 

Our pastor is currently preaching Star War themed sermons.  Andrew enjoyed all of the figures around the waiting area!

What we have been up to…

We have had a very busy week! 

Andrew had his very first basketball game!  He was so excited!!

He did good for his first game!  He got to dribble the ball all the way across the court!  So stinking cute!  Santa might just be bringing him a basketball goal for Christmas!

We have also been going through an advent calendar that was given to the kids from church.`It sometimes has a small gift, something to make, or something to do for others. 

One day they were told to make a letter to their teacher.  They LOVED making these and they were so cute!

Today they had a pipe cleaner and cereal to make a bird feeder.  This was perfect for Abigail!IMG_2001

Time Slow Down!

I am as guilty as a anyone when I try to rush time.  I live for the weekends and have find myself wishing for my kids to be just a little older and a little more independent.  Don’t we all at times?

Then you see something like this:
