Don't You Wish You Had a Pink Kitchen?

The Princess is really enjoying her new pink kitchen~and, frankly, I'm almost jealous because it's just so cute!! I just had to share it with you today:

the whole setup
some *table linens* and potholders
here we have some dishes and her new Paula Deen children's cookbook
Pizza, anyone?? And aren't those the cutest pots and pans?!
the detail on her vintage kitchen towel
the cooktop with utensils
birthday cake~yum!
milk or honey with your tea?
*cutting* foods~so fun!
I'm so glad we made the decision to upgrade her tiny plastic kitchen to this one. Plus we got rid of the millions of pieces of plastic food in exchange for fewer wooden pieces. Quality over quantity! Thank you, Papi and Nana, for helping pull off this birthday surprise! (And if you are wondering if this is part of that amazing Pottery Barn Kids set~it's not. It's from Target: a much better value and just as nice, I think).

Every little girl's dream...and then hang on to it to be the favorite grandparent someday!
This is beyond adorable! I have been thinking about kindergarten lately and we had a great wooden set. It sure wasn't nearly as cute as this. I guess I have been longing for those sweet easy days. Your parents did a great job getting all that. It's all so cute. I'm glad I'm a girl that had a girl that had a girl :)
That's a great idea, Kayren!!:)

Door Hanger Chore Charts

My kids have had a chore chart for a while.  It's one of those magnetic boards and they share it.  However, it's not by their rooms and often they (and I) forget to update it.  Plus it's a little bulky.   When I saw the concept of a door hanger chore chart on Pinterest, I loved it!  It was compact, right there were the kiddos could see it coming out and going into their rooms, and it costs almost nothing to make.   I headed over to one of my favorite stores: Hobby Lobby, of course.  They  have these little wooden door hangers for .79.  I also grabbed a couple of packets of decorative buttons for $1.99 each.  I already had the clothes pins and the paint so those cost me nothing.   I began by painting the door hangers (I used tempera paints because that's what I had).  Then I grabbed a fine point Sharpie and the clothes pins and started writing chores on them, making sure to write them correctly so they will clip on the right direction.   The left

The Making of an Egyptian Death Mask

We are learning all about the ancient world this year with Story of the World I and loving it! We've been learning a lot about Egypt, of course, which is completely fascinating. Most recently we have studied the New Kingdom of Egypt, which includes the story of King Tut. So we decided making an Egyptian death mask in the style of King Tut's would be a fun project. First since it was too cold at the time to paper mache in the garage (it probably would have frozen instead of dried-ha) and it was too messy to do it in the house, we decided to pick up a couple of cheap craft masks at Hobby Lobby. Next we cut out cardboard shapes to complete the shape of the death mask, attaching them with hot glue. Vince even put a little detail on the *beard* with the hot glue per The Princess' request. Then the kiddos started to paint them with this metallic gold tempera paint. It worked okay for the cardboard, but would not coat the plastic of the mask. We thought maybe a second c

Making Notebooks

Recently I tried out a new craft idea~and it was SO much fun!! And extremely frugal, too. That's always a bonus, right? So here we go: 1. Take your basic composition notebook (purchased at the back-to-school sales for .99 each). 2. Go to your craft supplies and get your Mod Podge ready, along with a good paintbrush. 3. Look through all those scrapbook papers you've been randomly collecting and choose some. 3. After choosing your paper for the cover of your book and trimming it to fit, start *painting* the cover with the glue. Next, give the back of your paper a good coat of glue, too. (I left the binding uncovered so that I could use a contrasting paper there later on). 4. Glue it on! Remember to smooth out any air bubbles under the paper. 5. Flip the cover open and make a few cuts on the corners so that they will fold over nice and neat, then add a little more glue to the edges of the inside cover and a little more to the paper edges. 6. Fold them over a
