My Theory on “The Man Cold”

My theory on “The Man Cold”. If you ladies have ever noticed, a mans cold always seems to be WAY worse than a woman’s cold. I’ve just experienced this over the last week. Now, the internet seems to chalk this up to “men are just being wussies” or “women know how to suck it up…

So here is pictures (so far) of Merida from brave. I need to finish her hair and make her quiver and bow, but she’s coming along fairly well.        

Dinosaur Cake

Dinosaur Cake

So much Nephew birthday happiness. The little dragon wasn’t the only thing I was working on for my nephews birthday party. But one was slightly more time sensitive. It was just as much fun to make though. I got to use the Wilton teddy bear pan once again and got to try making rice crispie…

Finally Finished Toothless

Finally Finished Toothless

  So you remember three months ago in the “what I’m working on” post when I was all excited about getting green cat eyes so I could make toothless. Well he is FINISHED!! Just in time for my nephew’s birthday. In fact, I only got a few pcs before he was swept away by his…

New Rattle

New Rattle

I realized a couple of weeks ago that all of the baby toys I have made have been GIRL GIRL GIRL. It makes sense because all of the babies in my life have been girls. But I still need to design something for the rest of the population. So I did it. I thought about…

I get to read Brown Bear Brown Bear What Do You See at the next story-time. It will be so much fun teaching the pet signs. I do 4 signs every time. So this time I will be doing Cat, Dog, Fish, and Duck. Cat, dog, and fish because they are common pets and duck because there…

Happy Leap Day Everyone

Happy Leap Day Everyone

Today I got to do something awesome. Our local library has started a program to help parents teach their babies Sign Language.  I taught Zachary ASL when he was younger, so I volunteered to help out with the program.  Well, the two ladies who run the Story Time have been over-taxed with their duties so…

Lady Bug Rattle

Gracie the Horse

Gracie the Horse

I’ve always been in love with horses.  I have one of my own who, unfortunately, still lives back in Illinois with my parents.  Though I’m thoroughly enjoying the California version of winter (seriously it’s 70 Degrees and its FEBRUARY!), I totally miss riding.  And I really wish I could have Zachary around horses.  He loves…

It was my husband’s grandmother’s birthday the other day and we all went over for a party at their house. I made all the food and the cake. It was fun. I had a great time figuring out how to paint a cake, and then make it all smooth. So here is what I did….
