Movie Night w/ Cousins

Preston & Parker came over to our house on Sunday, and we had so much fun.  We played cars & trains, we had dinner, and then we all watched Santa Claus is Coming to Town.  It was such a fun night with all the cousins together.

Each boy got their own cup full of popcorn.

Enjoying popcorn on the couch.

Old school cartoon movies are great.  The boys started to lose interest pretty quickly, though.  I think they prefer the new-school shows.  :)

Making memories together...sooo precious. 


Crafty Child

Jackson and I have been having a lot of fun lately making crafts, coloring pictures, baking brownies, etc.  It's been a lot of fun for both of us!


We made marshmallow snowmen the other day.  Jackson was sneaking a marshmallow into his mouth every single chance he could get.  He even tried to take them off his paper AFTER he glued them down, to eat them.  Ha!  What a nut!


Tonight, he had a blast putting pony beads on pipe cleaners.  He then decided he needed to take them all out of the cup, and line them up one by one in a straight line on the table.  If one of them would get bumped out of line, he started whining "Mommy!  It messed up!  I messed it up!!"  Oh boy, I think we have a perfectionist on our hands.

First Pinterest Craft Project

Along with many other people, I have developed a Pinterest obsession. I mostly use this to my advantage when cooking in the kitchen.  Recently, I've branched out from my recipe boards into the craft space. My first Pinterest craft was this cutesy Christmas card holder wreath.  It didn't turn out as awesome as the original picture looked, (my circle isn't exactly perfect), but I still think it's cute!  I'm excited for more Christmas cards to roll in, so I can fill it up!  I just ordered ours yesterday...a little late this year!
