 It's Share It Saturday Time! 
We had an unbelievable 116 creative and...let's be honest...AWESOME posts linked up this week!  Wow, it is fair to say that we are having a BLAST with this weekly party and getting so. many. great ideas from our sharers!! 

Before we get to the good stuff, we wanted to share a bit about our week with you...
I brought the kid's easel up from the basement after they were in bed one night so they would wake up to a fun surprise. They loved seeing it in our living room and the little message made them smile. 


Here is a rundown of some other fun things we did...
Painting (turned into little brother painting big sisters hands and then beautiful hand prints).
A little geography lesson given by some cute little ladies.  Here they are teaching me where Santa lives!
Baking, baking, and more baking of some cookies for a fun event coming up this weekend.  This also involved making a run to the local resale store and making this cute tiered tray to hold the cookies.
And this week little guy was such a big helper, I just had to share this cute photo of him sweeping our floors.  He put on daddy's hat and went to work, gotta love that!

We have been spending a little time on Pinterest to gear up for making pre school treat bags for the Valentine's Day parties coming up next week.  Is it just me, or is Valentine's Day getting a lil' crazy with the school parties??? I remember signing my She-Ra (Princess of Power) Valentine's Day cards and being done with....

Anyway.  Pinterest is really fun way to waste time  play around on...So it's all good :)
