Busy, Busy Bees

Whew! Where have I been??

I was afraid that when my sister and her littles left we would be bored out of our minds. Not knowing what to do with ourselves. How would we keep busy, I wondered. Yeah. I shouldn't have worried. We've definitely kept busy.

I will have more house updates soon. So, tune in. Or don't, if you're sick of hearing about it ;) Framing is officially finished, and now we're on to a little plumbing and windows. Woo hoo!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A little bit on what's been keeping us busy . . .

This one here. She pretty much keeps me runnin' all.day.long.

Can you say, hand FULL? We're smack dab in the middle of the "screeching at the top of our lungs phase". Is this a phase? I can't recall going through it quite so badly with my other two. Pair super loud with demanding, and you've got Kam ;) Thank goodness she's adorable.

~~~~~~~~~

We've been gearing up for the 4th. We don't actually have many plans, but my girls love an excuse to get dolled up. Who doesn't?

So, you guessed it, spa day. Sierra and Makenna both have red, white, & blue nails. Kam had half of them done, but she kept smudging hers, so we called it quits after our fourth attempt.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In other news . . . we've been crafting!

I kinda had to. I couldn't make a camp shirt for just one.

{If you'd like step by step pictures/tutorial for this, click here}


Sierra's is on the left, Makenna's is on the right. They chose their colors and helped me apply them.

FYI ~ wool felt is so much easier to work with than the oil cloth I used on Kam's shirt.

And after making Sierra's wool felt embellished tank top, you know Kenners was asking for one. So . . . this was her request. A ladybug. 'Cuz we call her Bug ;)


~~~~~~~~~~

So, that's it. We're getting ready to put on a movie and eat some ice cream. It's girls night, you know. Jeremy is at work. Hope y'all have a fabulous weekend!!

Join  us Saturdays at tatertotsandjello.com for the weekend wrap up    party!

Supercute!! I recognize those Gymboree chairs! :) Oh, and the screeching at the top of the lungs....must be a third girl thing. Bailey does it. Oh. how. she. does. it. We are working on using "words" rather than screams but she's older than miss Kam.
Oh, and those shirts are ADORABLE!! I'll take three please! hehe! (p.s...we have the coconut shirt from Gymboree too...surprise surprise).

Have a wonderful girls night! Yay!

I LOVE these shirts! They turned out so cute! I'd love for you to link it up @ iheartnaptime.blogspot.com

Kam's outfit in that first pic is so darn cute! I love the tops you made too.

I totally forgot about painting Abby's nails. I had told her I'd paint them red, white and blue, but then we never got to the store to find the blue and white. Maybe she'll forget? LOL!

Those shirts all turned out awesome. I think you should totally sell them. Well not those, but make some to sell. Great job. Love the Patriotic nails too. CUTE

Kasey Hunt said...

well, you should start your own little shop or something. Those shirts are so darling. I'm in love with them!!

Hi! You've got a great blog here and I love this idea. I host a toddler link up party every tuesday called Tot Tuesdays. Would love it if you'd stop by and link up this idea along with the many other great ideas you have for toddlers. Have a great day!

Wow, it does look like you are busy. I feel the same way about being busy bees. We have ran all last week with swimming lessons, playdates, racing and the fourth. So today we are starting the week out on a slower speed hoping it will last all week.
Love the camp shirts. Trey has grown out of the cute t-shirt phase so I will have to spoil Lila with the cute shirts.
Have a wonderful Monday!

We did nails too! Except no white so just red and blue, it works!

I saw this on the naptime link up. I love them, they are so cute.

I would love it if you stopped by my first linky party for my month long Christmas in July homemade gift event.

I hope to see you there!
