I made this little pumpkin patch art as a sample for the kids and I was thinking, “This is going to be adorable. My kids will love this! Candy pumpkins…glue…yarn? How could they not love this? These will be perfect. I’ll be posting about these puppies up on the blog, for sure! It’ll probably go viral!”
I showed them how to make the “pumpkin patch” and then I began washing the dishes.
They seemed all about it.
I mean…look at that excitement…
When I came back to the table, I found these.
One with mostly pumpkins…
…and one with mostly yarn-vines!
I had to laugh and I decided then-and-there that I just had to blog about these works of art, because this is real life and real life is hilarious.
We see and share so many picture-perfect photos of our kids doing picture-perfect activities all over the internet.
I’m guilty of shoving things to the side and cropping photos. Believe me, I’ll still be cropping and shoving, because honestly, this mess gets cray-cray, but once in a great while it’s fun to share the not-so-perfect-yet-perfect of days.
My kids had fun…and that’s what matters.
Any crafts end up like this for you, too? Do tell! I’d love to hear about it.
Thanks for stopping by my bloggity blog you nice person, you!
Happy Monday! We’re officially under a week until Halloween! WooHoo! I seriously can’t believe it. After seeing some Halloween charcuterie boards around Pinterest and over on Instagram I thought why not give it a go myself. On Friday afternoon I put together this cute little charcuterie board for the kids as a surprise for when…
Halloween is right around the corner and it seems as though we managed to accomplish all things “fall” over this past weekend. I wanted to share with you guys our little trip to the farm. For the past few years we have visited a different farm about an hour-and-a-half north of us here in…
Wow! I’ve posted three blog posts this week?! Three! It feels good to be a gangsta blogger! (Check out my pumpkin patch/farm post here and our pumpkin patch artwork post here) You guys, can I just start by showing you these trees? This is the view out our kitchen doors looking south and it’s even more beautiful in person….
Hey all! I hope you all had a beautiful weekend and a wonderful Mother’s Day! I thought I’d swing by the bloggity blog and share some pictures from our Mother’s Day outing. We had a great day! I mean, who wouldn’t with these two adorable faces… Jon made us reservations for brunch and I was…
Hi All! It’s April 1st and that means it’s my Birthday! I’m 32 years young! 😉 I thought I’d share a little “getting to know me” blog post by sharing 32 facts about myself. I thought, pssshhh…32 facts??!! No problem. Umm…it’s easier said than done. I sat staring at my computer trying to come up…
Wow! How is it already November 3rd? I don’t know about you, but our weekend flew by! We were busy…the best kind of busy…almost every minute of it. The weekend began with Mr. Henry’s Pre-School Halloween Par-Tay and Trick-or-Treating at a Medical Care Facility here in our town. “Miles,” AKA Henry, was super excited! I…
Oh this is so perfect! And boy, is it soooo true! I LOLed when I saw the one with all yarn vines. That's a keeper for sure!
Bahahahaha this is classic and so right on 🙂 I feel like unless you're hand holding them through the process they are going to do whatever they damn well please!
That's hilarious! I can only imagine what Liam would do if I let him have a free for all with arts and crafts. Haha!!!
