Easy Tie-Dye T-Shirts

The kids have been sick this week - some 24 hour bug that the three big ones have gotten (over the course of three days...) so theres been lots of movie watching, book reading, napping, and down time at our house! 

Today everyone woke up fever free and ready for a change of pace. We weren't quite ready to venture out but I did put together a fun craft that everyone loved! 

We made sharpie tie-dye t-shirts! 
They were super easy, fun for the kids and turned out great!

Roaring Run





















Our Saturday was spent with family hiking to Roaring Run Falls! 

The kids were so excited to picnic and play in the water with their cousins. Little Georgia clung to me the whole time (literally!) and the boys were fascinated with throwing rocks in the water. We enjoyed the beauty of God's creation and hanging out with some of our favorite people! 

Thanks Tammy for getting everything together - 
and thanks everyone for helping keep the kiddos safe on the trail!

Fake Birthdays =)












This morning we threw a "birthday party" for Lillianne's doll - Abby. Its been in the works for weeks...we searched pinterest, planned a menu, shopped for crafts and decided that Abby must be one special doll to receive such great treatment =)

Lillianne decided sleeping bags/pillows, flip flops (for little dolls and big girls), and ponchos would be fun crafts. They turned out so cute! After a special lunch Abby even blew out her birthday candle and the kids celebrated with mini cakes!

So thankful for sweet cousins who love dolls just as much --- they all had a great day laughing and playing together!

Heard Around Our House...

Haven't done one of these in a while...


Hudson: "When we get to Heaven will I look like I do now?" 
Me: "Not sure. We'll have to wait and see." 
Hudson: Well, I'm going to ask God to give me a blue body." 

Pretty much every time we ask Nolan to do anything he responds with a very loud "OK, Son!" 

Lillianne, in her typical 6 going on 26 year old attitude...
"Mom, this ham is delicious! Is it Boar's Head?" (I mean, really?!) 


These kids... gotta love em!
