Five on Friday - Already?

Whoa!  I can't believe it's already Friday!

We've had an exciting week over here.  Lots of fun stuff!  Let's get to it.


Earlier in the week I blogged about a couple of diy projects.  I made a cedar shim sunburst mirror and I made a fake plant look real.  Both were fun, easy and inexpensive.  You can read more about both projects here.

This boy.  

He may have to start wearing these glasses all the time due to the "adorable-ness" factor!


Speaking of Henry, he did something amazing this week.  I know, I know...this is another #proudmamamoment, but I must brag about him.  Besides, this could possibly not happen again for another year!  You just never know with kids.  LOL!

So, Henry likes to make books by using a stapler (with Mama close by, of course) and then he likes to draw/write on the inside and the outside of the "book."

He handed me a bag and told me to unwrap it (he insists that I "unwrap" everything by using scissors to carefully cut it open).  When I opened it, this is what I found!


The inside of the book is a roller coaster, obviously.  ;)

He nonchalantly told me that he knows how to draw an M and an O now, so he wrote MOM.  Really kid?!  I guess their brains really are sponges.  

That moment totally fell into the top 10 most memorable moments with/of him.  
So proud, so proud...  :)


We went to our nephew's first birthday party over the weekend.  The weather was gorgeous and the kids had a blast!  Eliza loved playing on the swing set and running over to check on the pony!  I love watching her play - so much sweetness.

Oh and my brother's house is surrounded by these wind turbines.  They're always cool to see, not to mention the fact that Henry was thoroughly entertained for miles and miles!  Very cool.  


The boat is in!  

Bring it, summer!  

This picture was taken after our first boat ride of the year!  The kids loved it and they were soooo well-behaved.    

Now we just need warmer weather!

Thanks for stopping by!  I sure do appreciate it. :)

Have a great weekend.  :)
