Russell was our 'snail with the mail' this week. This term is from the childrens' book series Frog & Toad. We saw an amazing play last year with our cousins. Here they are posed with Frog & Toad as well as the 3 birds. Ever since watching the play, the boys have been singing the song that Snail sings in the play. I was able to find it on youtube & it is fun!
This will make you smile!
Here are a few of the cute cards we sent with Russell this weekend to hand deliver to cousins! We surely wished we could be there too, but it wasn't possible this time.
For the origami heart box I made for the front of the cards, here is the website:

I'm not particularly crafty. I really just don't have time for those types of things during this time in my life. We're settled into our home rather comfortably and don't feel a lot of need for changes/upgrades at this point. With that said, Benjamin has a dresser in his room that needed a little love. With the guidance & encouragement of my sister, I painted & distressed it...using black chalk paint. We thought we'd save some $$ by using a locally made paint product instead of Annie Sloan Chalk Paints. Oh boy...that was probably a mistake. It ended up taking a lot longer & requiring more elbow grease than I thought necessary! Looking back though, it all turned out well.
I'm rather pleased with my first project.
[Another project in the works: replacing our squeaky, tired breakfast table]
