Mother’s Day.

I had a wonderful day with my family. It was Mother’s day yesterday. I am a mother and grandmother. I have 4 adult children who have touched my heart in so many ways.  I’m proud of each and everyone of them. They are their own person and have grown to be responsible adults and I couldn’t be prouder. I was only able to spend time with two of my kids yesterday.  One of my kids lives in another state so that was kind of hard at first not having him around all the time. The other had to work, which I understand.

I did take my mother out as well.  We all enjoyed dinner at the Yard House. It was a nice little dinner with my mother and her husband, myself and my husband, My two sons and their girlfriends and my two adorable grandsons. It was a pleasant night with my family.

DIY Coffee Filter Wreath

Hello everyone!  So I wanted to make a Christmas wreath and I came across a DIY coffee filter wreath. So I went our and bought the supplies.

  • Coffee filters about 3 packs which had 150 per a pack so a little over 300 filters
  • Hot glue gun
  • Craft of floral ring. I used the large one about 18in.
  • Mixing spoon this is optional it helped me to keep the filters held down with the hot glue gun and not burn myself. I used the handle portion. img_1136img_1137img_1138img_1139So with this spoon I flipped it over and used the handle. See pictures below. Then on the end of the filter I added hot glue and stuck it onto the craft ring. It took a very long time. I had to glue each individual filter so off and on it took me about 2 days to complete.

    img_1161This is the wreath all done! I love how it turned out! It just took a little time to make and I would do it again maybe next time choose a smaller ring. Thanks for stopping by.

Time With My Grandkids.

I love when my husband and I have the grandkids for the weekend. Our house is so quiet now a days. It’s good to hear little voices and looking at them and just so full of love. They absolutely fill my heart with so much love.

We took them to the park the other day. They have so much energy I had to  keep up. Then after about an hour we took them to our community park where they had a splash pad and we just let them loose to play in the water. They had a great time. Take a look at the pictures I took.

DIY Halloween Pails.

Hello! Welcome back to my blog. I wanted to share with you all a project I did for my grandsons. I made them custom halloween pails for their candy. Here is what they look like.

 

I bought the pails at Hobby Lobby for like 4.00 each. I then used my Cricut Explore Air to design and cut out the vinyl. I love how they turned out. The kids loved them and I’m that they can keep them and use them for as long as they can.

Halloween With the Grandkids.

It’s been awhile since I have posted on my blog. Well I just wanted to share a few photos of my grandsons. They spent the weekend with us and we had plans to keep them busy.

Saturday we took them to an outdoor market to go trick or treating. We got them all dressed up in their costumes. Anthony who is 5 was a pirate and Jerry who is going to be 3 in December was also a pirate. They look so cute in their costumes.

We arrived at the market and started trick or treating. There were a lot of kids all dressed up and walking around. It was nice to see all the families with their kids out. Well after walking around for about 30 minutes Jerry was getting tired so we put him in the stroller and he fell asleep. Poor little guy! Anthony was having a great time and he collected a good amount of candy. He was excited to get home so he could eat some.img_0358img_0359

 

I  have another grandson who lives out-of-state. He lives in Fort Campbell with my son andhis wife.  He is 2 years old and his name is Sebastian. My son sent me pictures of Sebastian in his costume. I really miss him but that’s ok were going to go visit them during Thanksgiving. I’m s excited and I can’t wait!
