Here is a picture of their finished treat bags they decorated. (I'm not sure why this picture is sideways). The photo books fit perfectly inside!
These photo books turned out adorable. The kids had fun picking out all their own decorations and stickers to make them. Inside this photo book, are many pictures I have taken during daycare hours of all the crafts and fun we have had throughout the year with each individual kid.
Noah helped decorate the photo book for baby Spencer, since he is too young to do it himself. He was proud of helping out.
Preston made this photo book especially for his Nana to surprise her! She will be so excited when she opens it up and See's all the photos of her grand kids. She has been asking me for pictures of the kids for a long time, so she can start scrapbooking.

My sweet little Jeremiah, cute as ever! I just LOVE his frog costume!

Sign up here to receive any combination of up to ten total pregnancy or ovulation tests from Sacred Heart Mission.
I saw this post on someones blog and I wanted to share it with you. We all know how expensive these tests can be, so I hope this helps. Happy Baby Making! :)
I remembered to take a picture after they were almost gone. They were too delicious to have any leftovers.
1 cup crab meat
1/2 cup cream cheese
1/2 cup fresh parsley leaved, chopped ( I used dried parsley, about 1/4 cup or so)
1/2 cup green onions, chopped ( I left this out, my hubby doesn't like onions)
4 tablespoons Parmesan
House Seasoning, recipe follows
2 portobello mushroom caps or 10 white mushrooms caps
1/2 cup bread crumbs
Nonstick cooking spray
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Combine the crab meat, cream cheese, parsley, green onions and Parmesan cheese. Season with House Seasoning to taste. Stuff the mushroom caps with the mixture and top with bread crumbs. Spray the tops with nonstick spray to help them brown. Transfer to the oven and bake for about 20 minutes or until the filling is hot and melted.
1 cup salt
1/4 cup black pepper
1/4 cup garlic
Mix ingredients together and store in an airtight container for up to 6 months.
Preston was trying so hard to peel the backs of the stickers off without wanting any help. He's a big boy now and he wants to do everything himself.
They were having so much fun with all the different stickers to choose from.
The outcome of all 3 tambourines made by the kids. Very cute!
Preston was proud of what he had made. AND oh my..........was it loud in our house for awhile. What was I thinking?!?! :) Although it was cute watching the kids dance around and make up there own music and singing.

Much to my surprise, my son Preston memorized his verse within the second time hearing it and he was excited to tell us all week what it was. The kids took all the nature items they found outside and glued them on the paper to make a collage. They LOVED it!
They had fun learning how to color over the paper with a leaf underneath to make a leaf imprint. It's so cute to see how excited they get once they see what it does.
I then let the boys color the rocks they found with their favorite color. Of course........Preston's favorite color is blue! His saying is "Mommy, I'm so in to blue". :)
He was making sure he was coating his rock real good with paint so he wouldn't leave any open spots.
