The Funnest Post EVER !!!!

Today....
We had lots of FUN !! In my attempt to find some FUN and original stuff to do with Chloe who is easily bored....I came across this at greetingarts.
Ice Treasures.

Find some small goodies.....freeze them in layers in a bowl.

Collect some tools

EDITED TO ADD.....THAT IS A TOY SCREWDRIVER AND SAW.....I am not that crazy !!

spoons, spray bottle with warm water, salt and go to town.

We all had fun doing this....

we chipped away and discovered goodies for 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Chloe was the OFFICIAL water sprayer....don't even touch her spray bottle.
I thought about many of you while we were doing this.....

it was such a good family time...it was HOT ..... the ice was COLD.... and the smiles and laughter were everywhere !!Wow!!!

the treasures are piling up.

nearly finished.

the only thing I will do different next time is buy some cheap new goodies that Chloe has never seen....this was spur of the moment and I just gathered up some odds and ends from around the house.

Ah Ha...more fun.....found this treat on Betz White.

FOAM !!! step by step instructions are there.

All you need is

  1. Old bottle like a water bottle
  2. Terry cloth like an old rag
  3. dish soap or bubbles (I used both)
  4. rubber bands

look how long that foam is.

Once again....we all LoVed this !!!

we will be doing this again....be sure to blow EASY !!!

Now have some fun !!

Speaking of fun....My State Love swap package arrived...
straight from the Lone Star State...TeXaS !!
Lots of stars.
Lots of food.
Lots of crafty goodness.
Thank you Victoria.....who should have a new baby by now...congratulations !!
I love it all !!

hahaha....my favorite....Never squat with your spurs on.

Ummmm.....Yes !!

Miss Chloe's birthday present arrived from Crystal and Moses...

Pointing her finger at her name on the card....explaining to Lei Lei that this gift is for her....and for she needs to beat it !!!
A beautiful berry skirt.....and matching yo yo hairbows.

Did you doubt this gift would be perfect and beautiful??

and cutie-pa-tootoe flip flops.....I could eat these !!

thanks for thinking of Chloe, Crystal and Moses......you mean so much to us !!!!

Mason and I are going to have to try that ice treasures idea. I've read about it before, but you've inspired me to try it. These hot NC days are perfect for that activity, that's for sure! :)
