Cute kiddos

So we got Ethan this magna-doodle for Christmas and I cannot tell you how much he loves it. Best gift idea ever. No mess and hours of entertainment! So he has always loved balloons, and his favorite thing to ask me to draw is a balloon. The other day I found him sitting on the couch making his own 'boons'! It was so cute.




Also I made a headband for Leah, and I think she likes it. I always find so many cute things on etsy, but do not want to spend 15-30 dollars on a headband! I ended up combining a few ideas I saw online and made my own. It makes my little bald baby a wee bit more girly.

Ethan's alphabet

video

Ethan has become really interested in letters in the last few weeks. I saw these flashcards at target for a dollar and I thought he would have fun looking at the pictures and letters. It turns out he really likes them, and between them, Sesame Street, and Wheel of Fortune he has learned all of his letters. Pretty cute!

House!


Of course I would be a slacker right after I exclaim that I'm blogging so much. But we've been busy; we just bought a HOUSE! It is not the one I talked about in the last post, they took another offer. I was initially very disappointed, but I feel really good about this new one. We do not close until the end of April, and it has not yet been inspected, but it is in great shape, so unless something really bizarre happens I think it's ours!

It's a cute brick house, 3 bed, 2 bath and a big garage. It's pretty outdated, it needs new carpet and there is wallpaper in all the bedrooms, but it is immaculate. And it has a groovy green stove in the kitchen that is original to the house, but looks brand new. (We'll see how well it works) It also has a basement that is unfinished, but is very finishable and clean. And it has all new windows. It's really the perfect amount of work for us, because we did want a project, but we don't really have the time or the know-how to do a major renovation. Anyway, we're excited!

I will add more pictures later, and will hopefully be doing several BEFORE/AFTER posts in the next year.
