A Bit Squirrely

The little guy and I were feeding the birds Friday evening when the botton fell out and the rain drenched us. I forgot to pick up the bag of bird food from the deck, so we had some furry visitors Saturday morning. They weren't afraid of us, so the little guy sat in the sink and he and I both watched them from the kitchen window. There were five total and they were have a fun time in the sun. Sometimes it's the little things that can bring special moments to the day.


  1. What fun! I'm sure your little guy loved it. Great pics!

  2. Oh my gosh! They are ADORABLE!!!!

  3. We have a lot of furry visitors in our backyard too! My kids love watching them! You took great pictures! Love your blog!

  4. what cute little furry guys!

  5. Love the pictures..I would have had fun just watching them too.

  6. Happy Tuesday! You have been tagged...this is my first time, hope I did it right.

  7. It always is the small things that are so awesome! On another note, those are huge compared to the furry residents of my backyard!

  8. Your squirrels look as big as the ones in our yard. What is going on with the chubby squirrel's in the south? My boys got a big giggle when they saw you had chubby squirrels too. Thanks for sharing your beautiful pictures and I love your blog.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!

A Wreath-Making Party

My fabulous friend Laura is probably the most creative person I know. So when she says she's going to throw a wreath party, you know it's going to be good.

To entice moms to volunteer for our upcoming school fundraiser and show them how cool it is to work with the fundraising committee, several moms got together and threw a wreath-making party. We invited school moms to come to a local clubhouse, bring a bag of fresh greenery from their yard and learn how to make a wreath. And who knew it would be so easy to make a gorgeous wreath for next-to-nothing (I'm talking the kind of wreath you pay $75+ for in the stores and nurserys)...

The clubhouse didn't have much to work with, so we got creative and wrapped the bookcase filled with trophies - and we went tacky on this in case anyone thought we were serious...but the centerpiece was the best. Laura found it at Anthropologie I think and bought it right off of the display...

We also had a cute little hot cocoa bar available …

Christmas Card 2012 (Or The Things I Make My Family Do)

Walker's now at the age he doesn't like mommy taking pictures of him. He finds mommy "annoying" at those times.

Gone are the days I can dress my little guy in a cute red and green outfit, with cute little green trees on his pants and have him pose with Christmas ornaments and Santa Claus.

So for this year's Christmas card, I needed to get creative.

So I trekked on over to Michaels and picked up some fake snow and a couple of styrofoam balls and decided I'd let Walker have a snowball fight with me and his dad and hope I could get some good pics out of it.

He was down with my idea.

Of course, we got a lot of good outtakes on this one...and it was funny because I had him all dressed up for winter, but it was actually pretty warm out (yep bare feet - we keep it real).

But the winner and my fave had daddy sprinkling fake snow over Walker's head while he threw "snowballs" at me.  I've gotten several perplexed e-mails and calls asking me where in…
