A collage is simple and fun to do. Materials needed: -Photos that inspire you -scissors -craft paper -Bring on your creativity -Have fun and of course be inspired!

Morning and a quick learning activity.

This morning I had some alone time, and enjoyed a nice hot cup of tea. Usually if I wake early, and everyone else is sleeping I will take advantage of getting things in order around the house. Sometimes I may even catch up on a few shows that I've recorded on our dvr. Well since we haven't been watching much of anything lately on tv, I decided to enjoy a nice cup of tea.  I figured a nice cup of tea would be nice while reading the Fine cooking magazine.  I have to figure out what to make for dinner tonight. We usually have a plan and a menu for the week, and of course todays plan for dinner is Beef/broccoli with rice.  Once my daughter was up, we enjoyed a nice breakfast, and she of course wanted to give me a million kisses, with her milk covered lips- ha ha life with a toddler, I love it.  I took an old container we were no longer using, and cut three shapes into the lid. Closed it back up, and grabbed a few of my daughters pom poms. You can buy them from your local
Throughout life people will make you mad, disrespect you and treat you bad. Let God deal with the things they do, cause hate in your heart will consume you too. ~ Will Smith -I must say I agree with this quote 100%. I have had to learn to let go and forgive so many people that have hurt me in my past. If you hold onto to hate in your heart it will consume you. Sometimes we have to take a step back and think to ourselves, what exactly has this person gone through or /how was their upbringing? Life happens fast, so we must remember to let things go, take time to clear our thoughts, always tell your loved ones that you love them, and remember to never hold hate in your heart.

Getting creative! Learning about shapes :)

Today we are learning about shapes in a fun creative way! I love Pinterest, and I'm always on there looking for fun new creative ways to teach my daughter. A while back I came across a Pinterest pin on using popsicle sticks to create shapes.  I loved the idea of using popsicle sticks. So today since my daughter is feeling a little better I decided to take some popsicle sticks and create just a few shapes. Right now we are learning about shapes, and numbers. This really helped teach her in a fun creative way. I only had a few popsicle sticks available and they were the smaller ones. I’m thinking next time I go to the craft store I will   probably pick up some thicker popsicle sticks.
We're home with a sick toddler! Our daughter has recently come down with a stomach bug, and I'm sure hoping it passes soon. This weekend has been a long one. She has lost her appetite, and I've been trying to give her liquids, which she has refused from time to time. Yesterday we spent the day snuggling, and reading. Today we made some fresh squeezed orange juice for our daughter, and what do you know...she loved it. I'm so happy she did. We are under some winter advisory weather here in Colorado. (So we have been taking it easy this weekend.)          It was pretty quiet in our house....and we find our daughter in her room with her stickers....        She placed them all over her big stuffed animal, dog. ha ha.
