This is a little peak into our life here at A Crafty House. Let's face it, Monday mornings can be tough. It's difficult coming off of the weekend with friends and family and getting back into the daily grind. Sometimes there's just nothing like that first cup of coffee on Monday morning to get you going. Whether you're at work booting your computer up or at home packing your kids' lunches, that cup of coffee just makes life feel a little better sometimes. This is our chance to catch up over a cup of coffee and ease back into the week......
The weather in Chicago was a bit crazy this weekend. Temperatures were all over the place. It was sunny, it rained, we got some fog......The only thing it didn't do was snow (don't hold your breath though). We spent lots of time outside once our fence went up. If you haven't seen the 'before' pictures, check them out here. I'm in love with red cedar right now..... our backyard smells amazing and it's great to have some real privacy outside. More 'after' pictures will come once we get the yard finished up.
M and I worked on a project that we'll be sharing with you tomorrow on Tutorial Tuesday. Here's a sneak peak..... it involves buttons :)
In other news, we played with our new water table and some other fun toys found at the dollar section at Target. Who would have thought that spray bottles could provide hours of fun!?!
We also celebrated Grandpa's birthday and M learned how to officially catch a ball..... C got more comfortable with the backyard and just wants to do everything that his sister does. It's quite comical to see the two of them interact now. I hope your weekend was filled with fun, relaxation, and crafting of course!
And now it's time to focus on the week ahead.... there are swim lessons, ballet, and school to look forward to with some much needed playdates mixed in. As I mentioned, I'm hoping to introduce some new themed days this week, so I hope you come back and check it all out. What are you up to this week?
