A message from my MOM!

"Hope you are having a good morning, Kiss Sawyer for me, than more often I see her, the more I miss her. I’m in meetings a lot today if you can’t reach me. Talk to you sometime, your party was really nice, I just love your friends, talk to you later, mom xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo"

Messages like this make hard days a little easier.  I love my mom.

Today was Sawyer's first day of real preschool.  I had to take a picture.  Too bad I brushed her teeth, and that pretty much ruined her morning....  Then on our way outside she demanding these old Christmas decorations (silver swirly stick things) and wouldn't put them down.  I think I got like two pictures before the big meltdown, they may not be perfect to you but they are perfect to me.

Mop and Glow Ornaments

I heard from a friend of mine, Kindra, that making these beautiful mess free glitter bulbs was easy.  Just get the medium sized glass bulbs from Michael's.  I bought three packs of four and they were like 70% off because it was like two days before Christmas when I bought them. Take the top off, poor a little Mop and Glow inside, swirl it around until the entire inside is covered, dump remainder out.  I picked fine glitter red and green, rotate bulb until the entire inside is covered, add more glitter if you run out.   And there you have it.  Dump out any excess glitter, let dry and put top back on.  This was an easy with an awesome project, just how I like things.  And I know it's January 21st, but I figure never too late right?  I still have a rice crispy pumpkin project, that Sawyer and I did, that I need to blog about. 

Whoever originally thought of this project, whoever you are.  Thank you for your brilliance.  I would put a source if I knew who the inventor is, but I don't.

Merry Christmas in January people.  Oh and Sawyer just sat on the couch and ate a block of cheese.  Oh, yeah she can open the fridge, she brings me raw eggs on a regular basis now.

Thanks for visiting The House with the Yellow Door.
