New Unders

I've noticed that Treyton's unders have been getting a little tighter on him lately. So I decided to pick up some new ones for when they don't fit. Be prepared....that's what my mom always taught me. Still does, actually. My dad too, come to think of it. Oh the little joys in life. Who doesn't like new unders?
Treyton chose sport ones and Galina got flower/prissy ones.
The football pair was his favorite.
Galina didn't care what they looked like, she just wanted them ON RIGHT NOW!
It's a little early but one can hope.
Fancy pants.
Treyton had to wear them for the rest of the day even though they were baggy. It's the style these days in preschool, perhaps?

Super Easy Appetizer Dip

Oh man, I scored again! This recipe is AWESOME! And, part of the reason is that it's so easy.

  • 1/2 pound of pepperoni, chopped
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 block of cream cheese

Combo all and bake at 350 for 15 min or until bubbly. (I used low fat soup and fat free chz, and it tasted great, by the way!) Serve with crackers, chips, or bread or whatever your fancy.

To Gross You Out.

Galina has discovered toe jam. And she's been doing this every night lately. The only thing cute about this nasty behavior is how she says "toy jam".
Oh bother!

Boy Flower

At springtime, it's hard for me to resist making flowers and fairies with my boy. But, successfully resisting this temptation, I decided to make another colorful contraption and am naming it a "boy flower". First, I took a container and drew 4 circles. I used two colors of paper for this but you could use all the same or all different. Treyton wanted ONLY blue and green. Then I folded the circles in half.
Getting out the markers, I put Treyton in charge of decorating the circles.
Then I cut a string, folded it in half, and placed it on a circle.
Time to add the glue!
Next I added a second folded circle in blue.
Keeping it folded, I had glue-boy go at it again. He added glue to the other half of the blue circle.
I repeated the process with another green circle.
Treyton added glue to the other half of the green circle.
Finally we added the last circle connecting it to the first one.
So you actually lay this one down as a whole circle.
The circles fit together like this:
Tie the loose strings into a knot, snip the ends, and there you have it. A boy flower to hang on his door!
P.S. Like his colorful spring necklace? I couldn't resist letting him make that...even though he is a boy. Oh forgive me, Treyton, when you see these pictures when you're 16!
