Spring Crafting

March 31, 2011 Leave a comment

Noah and I took a moment yesterday to make a spring craft for Daddy.

We found this craft at

We traced our hands on yellow cardstock and cut them out.

Then we cut out an oval out of the yellow paper and a beak and feet out of orange cardstock.

We attached the hands to the oval with brads – Glued on the feet, beak and googly eyes.

And whala!  We have a spring chicken!

While making our little No Bake Birds Nests yesterday, I had given Noah some of the peanut butter and butterscotch laden noodles…and he kept asking for “more” by using his sign for more.

What surprised me, was that he did the sign for please for the first time!  Well….it’s his rendition of please….I was so excited!

Here is the video:

No-Baking Birds Nests

March 23, 2011 1 comment

Today was such a productive day for me!

Part of the day was taken up with Noah and myself making No-Bake Birds Nests – a recipe that I found at

We melted the butterscotch chips and peanut butter and mixed them with chow mein noodles.

Then, we made birds nests and refrigerated them until firm.

Finally we added a dab of peanut butter to the tops to secure the malted eggs.

We had so much fun making such a yummy snack to bring in Spring!

Last week was Noah’s 2nd swim lesson and it was Daddy’s turn to jump in the pool with him!

He did much less crying and screaming!

The third lesson also went fantastic!  Noah went alone with Daddy while Mommy had a morning by herself to scrapbook!

We had a great, but very busy St. Patrick’s day!

We went over to Miss Julie Anne’s house with our Mom to Mom group, had lucky charms, played with our friends and make great shamrock crowns!

Mardi Gras Madness

March 17, 2011 Leave a comment

On Fat Tuesday, Noah and I took a long walk and then when it was too windy to do crafts at the playground, we came home to our kitchen table.

We made Mardi Gras masks and unfortunately was missing king cake until the next day.

We had a lot of fun!  It will be great when we can teach him the meaning behind the traditions.
