I might be back....

I have been MIA for a LONG time.  Sorry!  My boys have grown & are in school now, but I have a fun summer planned of learning & crafting.  So, stop by in about a month & a half.  We will be back to having some fun, educational activities that I hope that you will be excited to try out too!

My husband finally made it home. We are so grateful to have him home! We were blessed enough to have our reunion captured on video thanks to the news cameras. I decided to post the video just in case any of you wanted to see it.

My hubby is the one who waves at the top of the escalator & I am the only girl interviewed.

Let's get busy....

While blog hopping one day...I found 1+1+1=1.   They have awesome preschool packs that are for Freeeeeeeee!  {Yes, I love Bedtime Stories.}  I am always on the look out for free printables that the kiddos can work on.  I printed out the Batman & the Transportation.  This morning my little guy didn't have Preschool...so I thought that I would pull out one of these packs.  We went with Batman! 

First Preston made his own pattern using Batman & Robin. 

Then, we moved on to sorting Heroes & Villains, but first he had to cut them out.  My little lefty got to work & did a great job!

The last thing we did today was trace the "Bb is for Batman" worksheet.

Let's Talk & Valentine's Day Stuff

So, I know that I have been a bit MIA.  To be honest...I had to give a few things up for my own sanity.  My husband has been deployed for the last year now.  I really didn't want to make too big of a deal out of it...because I didn't want to wave the single mom alone flag.  Just to be safe!  For a while, I really tried to do everything that I did when my husband was home.  I realized that I had to let go of some things or "they" might have to come & haul me away in a straight jacket.  I stopped doing Muffin Tin Monday & crafts with the kids were beyond anything I could think of.  I must say that I have such respect for the single moms that do this everyday without a light at the end of the tunnel.  I am happy to say that we have finally reached the light at the end of our tunnel & couldn't be more thrilled.  I even managed to do make some cute marble magnets with the boys for their teachers for Valentine's Day. 

With all of that being said...I started thinking about the Valentines that the boys would be giving out to their classmates.  There are some A.MAZ.ING homemade Valentines out there.  At first I thought I could help them make some cute homemade Valentines, but they both chose to have store bought Valentines again this year.  I considered FORCING them to make one of these, but in the end...it is from them & no matter how cut these are, it is their choice.  I may try to convince them early on next year to try out one of these!

I wish I had save the links to a few, but here is one from Crap I've Made that I just saw today.  With two boys...this would be perfect.  She even includes the printable & tells you where she got the frogs!  This right up my littlest guy's alley!

Here as another really cute one from Eighteen 25.

 My all time favorite however is from The Crafting Chicks.  How cute/funny is that?  I REALLY wish that I could have convinced them to make this one, but there is always next year!

I will post a picture of the cute magnets we made for their teachers as soon as I get the box ready.  They are really nothing to spectacular & most of you have probably made them already, but they are easy & the boys were actually able to make their own with very little help from me!

I am attempting to SLOWLY get myself back into the swing of things & will start posting a bit more.  I really do apologize for being MIA for such a long time & not really giving much of an explanation.  Now I am off to convince my 4 year old to write his name on 24 Hot Wheels Valentines....this should be fun!!!

Letter to Santa

I posted this on my Simply Complicated blog, but decided to post it here as well.  I have seen a really cute letter out there, but didn't want to spend a ton of money...so I decided to make my own.  I used a scrapbooking kit called Christmas Whimsy.  My boys loved filling out their letter this year.  I hope your little one's do too!  So, if you want to use it...just click on the picture & print.

Santa's List Day is coming up on December 4th...so this is right in time!

Stay tuned...

I am just about done Christmas shopping {squeal}!  I am almost back on my game & have started compiling some fun things for Christmas.  I am excited to get crafting with the kiddos again.  If you follow my other blogs...you may have already seen my latest project.  I decided to create my own Ugly Dolls for my boys for Christmas.  I can't wait until they open them on Christmas morning.

My favorite thing is the cute little heart that I put on their backside.  I love it!!!
