Laundry Day

This is what laundry day looked like at our house:


I came downstairs to find Louie, our Old English Sheepdog “wearing” one of Shawn’s shirts, hanger and all.

Turns out, a certain little someone is responsible for this game of dress up.  She drapes the shirt over him and then collapses into a heap of giggles on the floor.  


Sweet, patient Louie. 
He doesn’t seem to mind. 
In fact, I think he may actually like it.

Yee Haw! A Cowgirl Birthday!

We celebrated Hannah’s 3rd birthday with family this weekend. 
Our theme? Cowgirls, of course!

 I planned and made the decorations and favors myself by spending very little and using things I already had on hand.

For example:
Tissue paper poms!  I bought a jumbo pack of pink and turquoise tissue paper and used about 9 sheets per pom, which made these pretties less than $1 each.

The cowgirl tree was made with an old Mason jar, some faux peat moss, branches from a Rose of Sharon in my backyard and scrapbook/cardmaking supplies I had in my stash.  Cute!


Each child got to take home a jar of the dry ingredients to make Bakerella’s Cowgirl Cookies!  I bought the jars at Hobby Lobby - $9 for a dozen.  I had many of the ingredients on hand and bought chocolate chips, brown sugar and M&Ms.  The pink bandanas are from Hob Lob also.  I bought 2 for $1 and cut them into small pieces for the tops.  I found the jute rope in my husband’s tool box and thought that it fit perfectly!cookies1

Tutorials for all of these lovlies coming soon!

Happy Birthday to my little cowgirl!  Love her so much!
