Love evergreens in the forest but honestly in our tiny yard it's a beautiful tree but kind of a drag. The needles are poky and nothing really grows back there but ivy. We dressed it up a little and David dug out an area and added some sand. I made some streamers (with a cut up plastic bag)
There is a birds nest in the tree made from a papermache bowl made by Sophia.
These bird houses are actually fairy houses or alien houses in my son's case.
This little bad boy was following us around for a few weeks but we now (knock on wood) have a potty trained 2 year old and this little bugger stays in the bathroom!
There are moments as a mother that I wonder what in the world did I get myself into? When the kids are fighting, the food is burning, laundry is flooding out of the laundry room and the bills need paid... then there is a moment generally more than one in the day that I look around and say yep I am doing ok. Then there are moments like these when I realize I am better then ok I am complete.
