DIY Bookcase Dollhouse

Posted by Honor on Tuesday, October 23, 2012, In : Decor Crafts 

DO IT YOURSELF Bookcase Dollhouse

A perfect rainy day project. This little old lady of a bookcase was fancified over the weekend. All it took was me dragging out my unbelievably large stash of scrapbook paper, scissors and many glue sticks.
Plus # 1: It is free! Go green right? Recycle, reduce and reuse...
Plus # 2: The kids can participate.
Plus # 3: The finished product is so darn toot'n cute.

Here we go... tricks and tips follow below each picture but this DIY is pretty self explanatory...

Harveston Lake (Duckies!)

Posted by Honor on Wednesday, October 17, 2012, In : Life At Home 

What a feeding frenzy!
Between her and the ducks our bits of bread didn't last more than 5 minutes. I must say that they were the most aggressive ducks/geese/water fowl I have ever ventured to feed.

We are talking swarms here! Even pecked our toes!

So I am thinking that maybe Lou with the attitude ate the bread out of self defense.

So besides our sore pecked toes and dodging the mass amounts of duck poop, it was a pretty nice little morning for us.

Thanks for stopping by!

I even caught the culp...

Gardening With Toddler 101

Posted by Honor on Thursday, September 27, 2012, In : Life At Home 

Don't you wish you could be this excited again?!?!  About everything? And anything?

Lou with the attitude was literally screaming with enthusiasm when I asked her if she could help me do some gardening. With little shovel in hand she promptly got to work pulling out my rosemary....

um Lou?

Those are not weeds.

ok Mama. (as she holds up a spring and inhales deeply) smells goooooood mama.

Just thought I would share this little bit of sunshine. Children are such joyful little nuggets.

Full-O-Joy. Cu...

Her First Butterfly

Posted by Honor on Tuesday, September 18, 2012, In : Life At Home 
     So exciting to be able to capture her 'firsts'. This was her first butterfly! I was futzing around inside when the hubs ran in and said grab the camera. There they were, engaged in a dance of sort. The butterfly letting Lou with the attitude dangerously close before it flitter and fluttered away. Like a feather on the breeze. But this was a friendly (or hurt) butterfly and fluttered away only so far. Perfect for chasing.

Thought that this special little moment was worth sharing. Hop...

Today was a good day... Beach Day

Posted by Honor on Sunday, September 16, 2012, In : Life At Home 

In order to escape the blazing-hot-surface-of-the-sun-indian-summer we are experiencing here in southern California, we did what any sane family would do and headed to the beach. It was a great family day. Thought I would share a couple of snapshots. Hope you are having a great weekend. Lots of DIYs scheduled for this week!

Thanks for stopping by!

Visiting Ghosts

Posted by Honor on Monday, August 27, 2012, In : Life At Home 
This weekend my parents, the babies and I flew up to Portland Oregon to visit my grandmother. She is my one and only grandmother, as my maternal one passed before I could meet her. (That statement makes me sad because from all the stories I hear about Betty Lou, she and I would have been thick as thieves. With our similar tempers, predilections to having flocked wallpaper on the ceiling and a devotion to anything sweet ).
   But GM Mary Jane couldn't be sweeter. Exactly what you hope a grandm...

Learning Good Habits

    Here is Lou with the attitude's newest gift from her father. Yes it is a tractor... of course it is a John Deere.

    It is much to much to big for her, I don't think her feet even reach the pedals. But that doesn't mean good habits can't begin. So while her father gave his big rig a wash she took it upon herself to give her green goodie a good ol scrub down. All by her little self. I asked if she wanted help... but that just got a big 'No!' and my jeans being...

Little Adventures

Posted by Honor on Monday, August 20, 2012, In : Life At Home 
We all have adventures... some bigger than others. It is so easy to forget how it was when we were little, where EVERYTHING was an adventure. Going to the store, birthday parties, school, tree swings, parades and of course bath time.... all little adventures that shape our personalities as well as our past.
  As a mom I try to remember not to sweat the little things. Clothes will get dirty, milk will get spilled, vases will get broken and we will be late. But more importantly I try and focus ...

Every Kid Needs A Bounce House

Posted by Honor on Monday, August 13, 2012, In : Life At Home 
This post has been sponsored by Craigslist (not really), but it is definitely a testament to the awesomeness of CL.

While mama bear was at a neighbors baby shower this weekend the hubs was on Lou with the attitude entertainment duty. I thought there would be some playtime in the kiddy pool or perhaps some sandbox castle building...

umm no. Not with my husband. He don't work that way.

I should have known. His eyes are permanently glued to CL always on the look out for a screaming deal for cars/t...
