It's Official...

Justin has started his baseball career. He had his Opening Ceremony and walked in the parade. He's had two practices and seems to like it. The coach and his teammates are really great. I'm thinking this is going to be a great experience for him.

Justin & Isla are such opposites in so many aspects. So it makes sense that their 'crafting styles' are so different from each other. While Isla takes her time and enjoys the process, Justin is gone after about two minutes. That explains why I have so many more pictures of Isla, Justin disappears so quickly.

Easter Studios

Sunday, April 12, 2009


The Easter Bunny gave the kids the run around this morning (literally) to finding their baskets. He left notes that lead to more notes and when we made our way back into the living room, baskets were there full of candy and toys. Justin got into it. How great is that rabbit in Isla's basket? So life like. She loved it, she kept saying, "I love her, mom". We had a great day, hope yours was too!

So the kids begged to dye eggs last night. It's always funny to me how fast an activity it is. You blink and they are done!

New Experiment

I lost the link to the blog I found this on but it's real simple. Just add cooking oil to a jar (not to the top) and equal parts water. Add 6 or so drops of food coloring. Then drop in effervescent tablets. I bought Equate brand pain reliever, the cheapest I could find. We actually added a few at a time for more movement. Justin loved it, reminded me of a lava lamp. Fun, fun.
