Painting Curtains for the Boys' Room

I found the idea for these curtains from one of my favorite blogs

Noah likes to work on his art projects at the table beside me.

Sleepy Angel

Kate was chatting and chatting on the way home from Grandma's yesterday afternoon. Finally the chatter stopped so I looked back and she was snoozing:)

Today we made these at my Mom's house: room spray, hand soap, and all-purpose cleaner. They smell SO good!

Breakfast at the Parramore's

Sometimes you just have to throw your hands up, laugh, and take pictures.

Sadie snuggled into the clean laundry.

Sweet Sister

My sister got Pampers for eighty-two cents a pack! She's seriously a couponing genius!

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Our doctor got her friends together and they all made a gluten free treat and brought the recipes. She gave me a photocopy of all the recipes they gathered. Here is a recipe (I change a couple of things, but they are fantastic!):

1/2 cup butter

3/4 cup almond butter

1 1/4 cup rice flour

1/4 cup almond flour

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1 egg

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder

1 cup chocolate chips

In a bowl beat the butter and almond butter until well blended. Add the rest of the ingredients. Beat until thoroughly combined. Add chocolate chips and mix with a fork. Shape into 1 inch balls, and flatten by crisscrossing with a fork. Bake at 375 for 6-8 minutes or until lightly browned.

What's fun to make . . .

. . . isn't always fun to eat. Actually the dog was too close to him and he does not like her near him when he's eating:)

Ike's been learning about fractions for awhile now. He loved seeing his pizza in fourths and did a good job explaining fractions to me:)

Ike's Finished Pillow

Boys' Room

Today I am working on some details for the boys' room. I bought two of these indoor/outdoor pillows from Pier 1 for $20 a piece. We found the letter stencils at Craft Warehouse. I'm using a bottle of white acrylic paint and am loving the results so far! Now I need to work on Isaac's pillow.

The Arts

Ike's been using these glasses for drums and the paper plates for "symbols." Kate uses the bed for her stage where she sings and dances away. These activities started early this morning and are still going strong.

Birthday Cards from Pop Pop


Cleaning up around here also means setting up art tables. The Parramore children love to create! Truthfully, the main reason we clean is so we can make new messes!
