My Favorite thing about summer.....

I love flowers. I love to take pictures of flowers even more. Playing with my camera is one of the things that I do to pass time. The flowers and the garden are my saving grace and taking my camera with me just makes it even better.
Today I was playing with different settings and such on the camera while taking pictures of flowers. Look at some of these. I think I may need to have some of the printed out for on the wall to decorate in the house with!
This is my Columbine that is lavender and white, taken in both the chrome setting and the black and white setting!

And this is the Hydrangea

And some others that I think are just gorgeous! I love pansy's which shows in the flowers we planted for Mothers Day! There is also daisy's which I love as well.
I enjoy using the black and white setting on my camera, saves me time so then I don't have to use editing software to do it and I think the defination is so much better!

Rainbow Birthday (only a month behind)

Nevaeh turned 4 in March and her request was a RAINBOW birthday party. So that is what we did!
It was a lot of fun to get ready for the party since there is so much you can do with a rainbow.
We decided to have them finger paint a big picture to put on the wall for her. I got a rainbow of shirts for them to wear over their clothes and we embroidered the shirt for Nevaeh. They were so cute in all the shirts.

We went on a scavenger hunt and found pots of gold. The kids thought this was great.

We had a Rainbow cake with confetti Ice Cream. The cake turned out perfect even though the hubby thought it was going to be a muddled mess.

For the favors, we did a rainbow of sand buckets with rainbow colored bubbles, a twisty straw cup, some rainbow colored candy, a rainbow pinwheel and a unicorn shaped crayon with paper.
They had so much fun.
I honestly can't believe my little girl is 4 years old already. Where did the time go!
Here she is in all her 4 glory in the shirt I appliqued for her and the capris I made to go with it.

Personal Pizza's HOMEMADE style!

The kids love to be involved in the kitchen and the other day we decided to make personal size pizzas and it was such a hit.
For starters we used all cast iron pans to make them which made the BEST pizzas ever!
Each kid go to make their own and even little Carter had a blast, and man do they ever eat them better than even moms!

We made lots of toppings and they went at it.
We have done it again since this and they loved it just as much. I am hoping that we can continue to add more things that they can help with to our dinner menus because it seems to be a great way to get them to eat more variety!

A day in the SNOW

Well it has been brought to my attention that I have not posted in forever on here and tho I have a ton of things to post about, this was our fun day today!!!

We had a great day of almost 40 degree weather so we played in the snow, making an awesome snowman with the kids.

I came into the house and got a scrap of fleece to make a scarf, found a hat that was too small and a pair of missmatched mittens to keep his/her hands warm. Add a carrot, a couple rocks and some fabric dye and you have something fun that looks like no other!
