Happy 4th Birthday, Mr. B!!!

Today my baby boy is 4 years old! We've been celebrating all weekend. Saturday we took a break from the unpacking process to have a family party at my parents' house. I don't know if I've ever seen Mr. B so excited~he looked like a pogo stick bouncing around the house:)
Here he is with his very special birthday cupcakes. He picked these out from the *Hello, Cupcake* book a couple of months ago and his choice did not waver. He was in the kitchen with me for the entire process, "helping" all the way. It was so cute!! The cupcakes turned out cute, too. I found the cutest party supplies at (of course) Hobby Lobby, too!
When it came time to blow out his candles, big sister wanted to get in on the action....
...but I'm afraid Mr. B wasn't willing to share his wish.
After cupcakes we had some fun playing with his new toys.

Mr. B especially enjoyed taking on his dad and uncle in a sword fight!
Happy birthday, my sweet son! I look forward to many more years of watching you grow and mature.

I am going to have to check out that 'cupcake' looks fantastic after the ones you did for The Princess and now these. I'm looking at the picture trying to figure this one out, and I can't completely. Very, very cool!

That sword fight looks dangerously similar to a whack that was filmed in one of the videos. I think from the Klondike bar, maybe?

Happy Birthday, Mr. B!!!

Happy Birthday Mr B! I have the same problem with my kids. The 2 who aren't having a birthday always want to *help*...usually the birthday child is not appreciative :) He does look like he had a great time, though!

P.S. I saw the cupcake cookbook at BAM last week on clearance and started to pick it up, but didn't. I think I'm going to go back and get it. Those cupcakes are adorable. What a great birtday!

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

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

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
