Birthdays, birthdays and even more birthdays!

My little girl turned 4 this weekend.
I cannot believe how fast the time has gone. From this wee little babe..
 To this little sassafras

Since my husband just got out of college and is in his first job, we really were worried about how we could make this birthday special for our little girl, or at least I was. With Carson our oldest we learned a couple of things as new parents. 
1. When we threw him big parties for his first few birthdays we set the bar really high for future siblings birthdays. 
2. older son expects big birthdays. 
3. If you can get away with a small birthday do it! And start now.
We just couldn't do a big party and invite all the cousins like we usually do. So we stayed home and we tried to make it fun and exciting and I think we did a good job.  This year with our move, older son didn't get a big party either and we may just continue on this tradition, cause I happen to like it. 
Just like my older son we decorated the outside of her room. (I'm gonna ha…

Primary 6: Lesson 30 David and Bathsheba handout

Good morning,

I thought it would be fun to create a little handout my kids could take home with them. Something to remind them what we went over in the lesson as well as how they can study the lesson and what they can do at home.

My hope is for the kids in my class to either put this on their wall or in their journals to remember this important lesson.

Click on the image and you should be able to print the image, or download the PDF file on the link below or here, have it printed and give to your children.

Daily Reminders and Goals. Free Printable!

One night, I thought to myself: Self, I need a daily reminder of the things that I should be doing..
I put pen and marker to paper and had fun with it. Later I took said paper to the computer and came up with an awesome print that I printed out at Walmart for about $13 bucks and now hangs in our hallway.  This serves as a daily reminder for me and my family to keep these important priorities numero uno. 
I decided to share so if you'd like to download a copy the sizes are 16X20 and you can click a jpg or pdf. These links will take you to the google doc and you can download there.  I don't think Walmart uploads the pdf files, but other online print companies like MPIX will. 

Here is my finished product, please excuse the glare from the lights and flash.

This is hopefully just the first of many fun printables to come!Probably more after school is over.

Today's outfit

Today's outfit took way too long to get ready. She is only in preschool.

What do you do when you know your child won't be able to wear certain clothes for much longer?
For example those darling boots from Target this summer, the largest size they had and she won't be fitting in them next summer.  That dress is also pretty tight squeeZe, I had to get her wearing it before she couldn't anymore. She has white dance shorts underneath which I love for shorter skirts or dresses enabling her to wear dresses longer. I have tall kids. 
Dress from little hands on Undershorts from Zullily. A dance clothing company I can't even read the label she's worn them so much.  Floral ankle boots :target toddler section
