sweet sister

This girl can be such a tender-heart. Last week, Paige, Livee, Miles and I went to Grapevine Mills Mall. Paige wanted to shop a little, so she brought her wallet with forty dollars of her babysitting money. Well, she accidentally left her wallet in a bathroom. Five minutes later we went back and it was gone. Of course Paige was pretty bummed. We all were. We checked at lost and found, and gave them our information in case somebody turned it in. (haven't heard anything) We went home and a little later Paige left to go to a Young Women activity. This is what she found when she got home:
Livee had put her savings into a little bowl, wrote this note and put it on Paige's dresser. When Paige showed me, it brought tears to my eyes. What a sweet sister!

Tiffany and I made these super fun bleach t-shirts. They were really easy too. First, borrow your favorite neighbors Cricut. (unless you are lucky enough to have one of your own) Next, cut out any words or cute images on cardstock. Then, using spray adhesive, stick your cut-outs onto your shirts. Make sure all edges are pressed down firmly. After that, take your shirts and a spray bottle of bleach outside and spray away. That's it.
We did take it one step further with Paige's and Livee's. We just googled altered t-shirts, found some tutorials on YouTube, then just started snipping away. This was the first time we tried it and I can't wait to make some more now that Zoe is home. You guys gotta try it!

The 4th

I feel so blessed to live in the USA!!!
What a great reason to celebrate!
Tiffany, Kodi and Degan were here for the weekend, so we got together with Cousin Kellie for a picnic at Lake Grapevine. We found a cute little wooded area where we ate an early dinner. There were lots of trails for the kids to explore. They loved it!
A little later, Livee needed to find a little girls room. (no roughing it in the woods for that girl :) So we packed up and tried to find a better area for watching the fireworks later. We ended up finding a perfect spot. The kids played in the water for hours. They were really good entertainment for Tiff and I, and the other people sitting around us. They splashed and danced and ran and laughed and embarrassed their moms (Tiffany) all night long. It was just a fun, easy day.

I love you USA!
