Valentine's Day Crayons

I did cute little Valentine’s crayons again this year.  I did it a few years back, but this year I got more help!  The girls helped a lot in unwrapping the crayons and then breaking them.  Daniel came in and got smart with the razor blade to take the wrap off of the crayons, so from there it went a lot faster!
They came out really cute and the girls loved them!

Step 1: Take the paper wrapping off all of the crayons.  Again, you can use a razor blade once the kids get tired of helping {which honestly, is after about 10}

Step 2: Break the crayons into small pieces

Step 3: Fill your mold with crayon pieces. I didn't strategically place the crayons for most. 
But I did make some of them color coordinating.

Step 4: Place in the oven at 350 degrees for 3-5 minutes {or until all melted}


Step 5: After cooled, the crayons should pop right out.  I did have to bang on the back a little for a few.
Super Easy!

Harper 9 Month Photo Shoot

I usually get 6 month photos taken of the girls.  Hadleigh has them. Hayden has them. I’m still fighting with myself on whether Harper truly has them.  We got FAMILY pictures taken when Harper was 6 months so she has some, but technically not.  I’m so frustrated with myself I didn't do this when she was 6 months, but better late than never!  This little photo shoot lasted only about 10 minutes, but I think I got some good ones :)

It's Friday!

This weekend will be another busy one!  We don’t have too much planned, but there are lots on our to-do list

Birthday Party// our friends’ little girl is ONE! We will be celebrating this sweet face tomorrow
Cleaning // UGH.  There’s not much in the world that I hate more than cleaning.  3 kids and 2 dogs (and if my husband were writing this he would add “and 1 wife”) do a lot of damage!  Having 3 kids, 2 dogs, and 2 full-time jobs – it’s the last damn thing we want to do on our weekend.

Half Bathroom // hopefully we can make more headway in the bathroom re-model.  I’m not sure what’s next on our list – whether it be painting the walls, installing the tile, or putting the top coat on the wood. Either way, I’m hoping the girls cooperate so we can get something done in there!

Errands // doesn't every weekend involve some kind of errands?  We need to go to Target, AC Moore or Michael’s, Kroger, and we have an appointment with our tax guy tomorrow morning.


Brunch // we are having brunch with Daniel’s family this weekend to celebrate his mom’s birthday!  We’ll be going to The HardShell.  We've been before and their food is great.

What do you have going on this weekend?
Are errands on your list too?
