Handprint project

So these wooden discs (what are these called?) were given to me by someone who thought I could do something with them. And something came to me. I did the kiddos handprints on them in the colors I can't get away from. I added them to my Christmas decor.

 That's Max up there, in the mix. Little man is on the move now. Just trying to soak it all up, he grows each day.

h is for hap

This shower for my friend Del and baby Hap was a few months back and now sharing. I did the decorations and can't take any credit for this yummy food. I'll take decor duty over food anyday. Del with her Hap makes me thank God each time I see new pics on FB. Del was born to be a mama & now she is.



 Fuzzy shot, but I painted little wooden ABC blocks and hot glued a small clothes pin to the top for the menu items.
 Cute friends of Del's. Can't remember names??? But we were all happy to be there and giddy about baby Hap.
 Little man. No clue the stir he caused.


 Now I do know these chickadees: KD sistas-Kristen, Meghan & Amy.


 Wreath I fashioned up with a painted H and ribbon strips.
 Notes to Hap, got this from pinterest. People write notes to Hap.
 My friend Kristen had these wire buggies.


I used stamps to make these H/Hap signs. Swiped the greenery from my hood.

i just wanna take a bath

So the dad is a little snarky in this commercial. But my favorite part is the last line from the mom. "I just wanna take a bath". I could say that all day long. It is the ideal place to be. I wish I could transport myself into the bathtub to rectify any chaotic situation that has gotten me crazy cuckoo.

Below is Ruthie's illustration of me getting into the bath, actually it looks like I'm happily falling into the tub. She even added the "bosoms"-for some reason that is what they are called around here. Moms with little babes have a small amount of privacy.

 YUM. I can't take credit for any of it. I am thankful for mama!
