{Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real} 8/4/2011

round button chicken


Special K had her special day out with mom (and Lil' Lamb). She had her hair cut at the salon, spent her allowance at Clair's, and had Chick-fil-a for lunch. I love her new hair style. A very pretty cut for a very pretty little girl.


We are still keeping up with our one fun project a week goal this summer. Last week we made homemade spray paint. Mix equal parts cornstarch and water and add food coloring in empty spray bottles. This was a lot of fun for about 10 minutes. It took more time to mix our concoctions than it did to empty the spray bottles. The kiddos still really enjoyed it, and I'm sure we'll do it again.


After nearly a week cooped up indoors with a sick little boy, we were able to escape this week and made a quick trip to a local park. Here is one of my funny little monkeys, dangling from the monkey bars.


This is the arsenal of remedies for poor Lil' Wingnut. Official diagnoses was bacterial airway infection. Thankfully a strong antibiotic and lots of prayers from friends and family knocked the infection right out of our lil' guy. He is up and about and back to his normal mischief.

That is a neat idea for the spray paint! We'll have to give that a try.

Poor Lil' Wingnut. That is NO FUN! Love Special K's new cut and we will be trying the spray paint soon!

The new haircut is very pretty! The spray paint looks fun, and good for you for doing a fun project a week! Glad your little one is healthy again!
