We're still having fun with our art projects...


Today we started working on my favorite project so far, I can't wait to post pics of the finished product!  Fun, fun, fun!

...........

Other than working on art projects, we've been quite busy around here.  We're getting ready for our first vacation as a family of four.  I hate packing for just myself.  Having to pack for Poppy used to stress me out.  Having to pack for all of us, including an infant who requires tons of stuff, totally stresses me out.  So I've been trying to get a heads start on packing, running errands, thinking about getting my hair chopped off again, etc.  Oh, and I've been reading this really, really good book (which explains my lack of blog posts lately).  It's called "The Glass Castle" by Jeannette Walls.  I am absolutely loving it so far!  And I just found out there is a "prequel" and I definitely plan on bringing it with me on vacation.

We are borrowing this little beach tent from my parents, and we set it up in our living room to see how big it is.  Poppy immediately took it over as her "cave".  Have you ever seen "Hoarders"?  I know you have.  Here is evidence that Poppy doesn't stand a chance of not being a hoarder when she grows up...


This was literally within 30 minutes of having this tent set up.  Ca-razy!

Ha! I LOVE all the stuff piled up in her tent! What a crackup.
Can't wait to see this art project you hint at!
And guess what... we might be joining you in the packing frenzy. Adam got a bonus royalty check that would cover a trip to Mexico! We'll have to exchange packing secrets. (In other words, you'll have to give me all yours.) :)

Oh man. Have I mentioned how jealous I am of these art classes?! (I know I have)

I am not jealous of your packing however. I'm so over packing here... and we have an upcoming trip to NJ/Chicago/NJ for 12 days straight. Kill. Me. Now.

In other words, I feel your pain.

And that tent?! Holy cow. Poppy never ceases to make me laugh!

Awesome!!! Poppy and Claire can live together with all their stuff because Claire is the same way (old sames)!!

PS Whats with the HUGE latex glove?? What kind of paint are you using???

That is awesome! I think it's the 3-4 yo mentality. Morgan loves storing crap in ANY container/area that he claims as his. We put a tent in our back yard last weekend and it looked very similar.

The packing is a nightmare--we've done it three times already. I learned never to leave home without baby tylenol/motrin because of teething.

Glass Castle is a fabulous book! So is Half Broke Horses - you will love it.
Have a great vacation!
