Latest Project: Eating Out Bag

So...we eat out alot.  And I mean A LOT!  With me being so busy and it
being so hot, we just go out to eat...

Anyway, the girls get a little bored with the cheap crayons and ridiculus papers.  I raked through pinterest and I found a couple of ideas.  I don't remember who made them all, so if you see your work, let me know so I can give you props...

First thing first, get a bag...duh!

The first thing I added to it is color paper with crayons in a travel soap container.

I only added a few crayons because it is less for them to drop on the oh-so-dirty floor.

Labeled them, so there is no question whose is whose...

Then I put a rubber band around them so dual purpose:
1) to keep the box shut and the contents in
2) to put the girl's hair up if it isn't already

then put aside.

The last thing I worked on was little "puppets".

First, I took toothpicks then I cut one end off...then I figured out it was easier to just bend off the end...

Then I covered the sharp end with a sticker on one side and a piece of paper on the other.  I then trimmed the paper, as you can see.

Then I put them into little containers and "labeled" them.
Thanks Jessica Mets of MetsyMade for the little box =D

Then I stuck it all in a bag...I also put some books and magnet activity thingys in case they get bored of all that stuff too...

I have yet to try it out...we shall see if it works soon enough!  If you try it out, let me know how it works!

Sickie Monkey

So this week was a first ever for our family.

Chelise was the first girl to get an ear infection.

I knew she had some time of infection cuz her fever would go up then down then up again.  I wasn't going to bring her in becasue she had a doctors appointment on Monday and I figured she could wait till then. 

Well, she got really fussy and didn't get much sleep(that means neither did I) and she wasn't eating at all. 

She loved sleeping on the couch.  She looks so miserable...=C

 So we go in on Monday and as I look her over, I see a bunch of wax and junk coming out of her ear...yep, it was an ear infection.  What ended up happening is that we waited so long that her ear drum, I feel like the worst mom in the world!

Here we are at the doctor's in the cute little gown she got to wear.  She was really good except for when the doctor wanted to look in her left ear...

She is now on medicine and she is doing a little bit better.  She still doesn't like people touching her ear, but she is happy and giggly like she always is. 

We did have to put off going out to Lagoon bacause she can't go swimming but we are still going to the zoo so she will like that. 

Enduring this new adventure of ear infections was not the funnest but I did love the extra cuddle time and the extra loves from her. 

Thanks for all the prayers for her!
