Cute Neighbor Gifts

First off have your amazing dad give you all his extra wood.  Then have your amazing dad cut it all to size and put a groove in it.  Yes, I do have an amazing dad.

 Paint it red

Sand the edges

Put vinyl on it

Add embelleshments

Give one to all your sweet neighbors and repeat.

Menu Board

This is my new menu board.  Well, it's not exactly new.  I've had it for a while actually.  I made it probably back in Sept or Oct.  Anyways, I do love it.  It helps me so much to remember to take meat out to thaw, or so I have a plan and don't resort to fast food.  It seems to me that even if I write down the simplest of things, like a menu or chores around the house, I'm more likely to do them.  I got the metal board from Roberts.  It was around nine dollars with a 40% off coupon.  Then I taped off the inside rectangle and spray painted some chalkboard paint onto it.  I used some clear beads and hot glued scrapbook paper and letters on them and then glued some magnets onto the back.  I love it!  And my husband loves that he always knows what is for dinner.  My favorite day would have to be daddy's night. lol.  Now go make one for yourself. 

December Craft Day!

I just got through with my second craft day.  We made these adorable 2x4 christmas trees and we made Christmas countdowns.  We had a great amount of people show up and a lot of wood needed to be cut.  But when everything comes together and the girls craft day starts, all the time is worth it.

File Folder Games

These are so fun for kids and such a good learning experience.  My son loves to play with these and I made him his own set for Christmas but these particular folders are going to my niece in Denver.  I hope that she loves them as much as Wyatt does.  I tried to include diverse educational ones, including colors, numbers, letters, matching, and sounds.  I'm super excited to send them to Denver and I just wish I could be there to see her face.
