We used craft popsicle sticks and glued our summer plans on each one. The boys have fun moving them from one spot to the other.
Here's the birthday invites for DS8's party. I just printed them off on cardstock, ripped the edges and sponged the edges with brown ink.

I made some cupcakes from the Familyfun website-so easy and cute!(Instead of good and plenty candies for the chalk, I used Popeye candy sticks, broken into thirds.)
These are the Sand bucket cakes I made for teacher's gifts. I got this idea from Real simple magazine a few years back .
This is the card design we chose for the teachers-The boys did a great job with them. We got the idea from papercrafts magazine. The inside says, "Have a sweet summer"
I was lucky enough to find an 'H' at the dollarama! I mod podged this summery paper on it for our porch. Love those stripes!! More simple stuff to come this summer...

What a lazy day here!! J-bird is home from school today and Big Mister is home from work. He has, as usual overworked himself and hit the wall. So I just can't seem to get anything done, but it's great to have everyone home.This is a picture of the freezing rain we got today. So it was a good day to stay in!
Gotta plan the meals for the week. I still haven't tried making pretzels but I want to give it a go!We are having ham tonight(leftovers)Tomorrow is chicken with M&M's chicken and rib sauce and I think I'll make up a three day salad to go with it. (recipe to follow)Wednesday will be spaghetti with garlic bread and three day salad. Thursday Chicken and rice and veggies. Friday friends are coming so I'm thinking Tacos. Oops-it's Lent so I better re-think that! Off to surf my favorite sites!

Wednesday I celebrated what we at Magical Holiday Home call Rudolph Day! A wonderful opportunity to keep a little Christmas with you on the 25th of each month. My accomplishment for February was to (finally) finish scrapping the Christmas pictures for 2007. This means that the Christmas baby books for my babies are full. Onward to more memories! Time to order the pictures from 2008! (I've always had great luck with snapfish)

Here in Nova Scotia we follow Shubenacadie Sam's forecast and apparently we are going to be 'enjoying' another 6 weeks of winter. I would love to be outside taking some of the latest storm in, but our youngest hates the snow and cold. He is just getting over a bout of pneumonia so I really can't blame him! We have had a few good skates on our outdoor rink, though, and I'm hoping we can get a decent size tobogganing hill set up with the 'spoils' from today's continuing storm. If your interested in trying to build your own rink check out this link; Rink.
The snowmobilers have been going by all day, as we have a wonderful set of trails that run right next to our house. We don't have one yet (one income household) but are lucky enough to have a brother in law who doesn't mind sharing now and then!
Squidge waiting, not so patiently, for a snowmobile ride...
