It’s back to school time, so you know what that means… sickies galore!!! =)
The kids have been fighting something ever since they got their flu shots 3 1/2 weeks ago. I was hoping in Abby’s case that her runny nose was caused by teething (getting 2 of the last bottom 4!!), but it doesn’t look like that was entirely it. Both kids were feeling pretty crumby this past Sunday (lets face it, Ray and I weren’t feeling too great either – we’re fighting whatever “it” is too), so the day was spent doing “calm” things… even though it would have been great to get out and run and play… it was a beautiful fall day!
Now that all of the winter holidays are over and it is officially Springtime ( YAY!! Though you would never know it by looking or going outside today), I thought it would be a good idea to get some cheerful decorations in the house. I’ve seen Valentine and St Patrick’s Day garlands out in blogland and was inspired by them to make the pattern for my Easter Egg Garland!!
So far I’ve been doing well with many of the things that I set out to get done and change this year. I have (mostly) been keeping up with my plan to DDC (decrapify, declutter and clean). I have been doing well in my quest to lose 15 pounds in 15 weeks (more on that later) and I am 4 out of 5 in my goal to do at least 1 craft a week.
This tutorial has been on my mind for quite some time now… since Christmas of last year actually. At that time I had made Noah a set of numbered bean bags following the freezer paper method that I saw on Lil Blue Boo. She’s got a great tutorial for freezer paper stenciling there, so I’m not going to repeat it.
