The in between days

December has been extra busy.

I feel like we have been rushing around so much I haven't had a moment to just relax and breath.  But we somehow survived. Bear's had the first round of tests at his new school with them testing and evaluating him.  He did great, and even though he did get a little overwhelmed a few times, he at least waited until after we were done with the tests and in the car before he threw up. lol And he at least had the courtesy to do it before we drove out of the parking lot. ha ha ha. Ohhhh my little boy.

I got to get all sorts of craft for a little while, and even though it wasn't the serene quiet time alone that I needed, it was a little therapeutic. And of course my little man kept me on my toes with trying to get into the paint, touching the wet paint, dumping paint, dumping out my crafts.....and the list goes on. ha ha ha  Ohhhh I never have a dull moment with my little bear.

Here are some fun pictures from our days in between the holidays.

 He sure has a lot of talent

Helping his Mama open her new mixer

Baby Bear fell asleep with his little blue light hidden under the covers. It was a cute picture.

He loves his whale.

 Mama gave him pudding. lol

Hanging out with his speech therapist. He has a huge crush on her.

Hanging out with his big brother.  Harley is a really great dog. lol

New bath toys are so much fun

I love those few and far between moments where he cuddles.

Mornings with a bear. Nice hair!!

Bear's thought he would stack his formula boxes. lol

stealing Mama's ramen noodles

Markers...I see no markers Mama

Sneaking a cookie

And he drew on his face. lol

silly faces with Gwamma Bear

getting all done up for the girls.

It's tough and exhausting work being this handsome!!

Look Ma, I pu my pants on all by me onesies!!

It got silent while I was moving things to bring the tree in the house. Yah he took the lid off of the vick's, and then stuck his comb in it. I couldn't get it of of the comb. I threw it away. lol

fell asleep sitting up

watching cartoons before we head to bed. Harley is such a good dog!!

He insisted on holding my hand. I loved it!!!

Pudding Mom?  I see no pudding. lol

 Mom didn't see that one Christmas marker was let out. He drew all over his face, feet, hands, elbows, and underarm. lol Ohhhhh my little boy!!!

Me trying to be crafty

 So I have been trying to squeeze in a few crafts now and then to decorate the house a little.
Here are just a few I have done, or almost finished. All the wood crafts here were purchased from Crafty Wood Cutouts . I love how cheap the sets are, and they offer free shipping. The wood is always well cut, and is really tall and thick. It is sturdy and will last for a while. If you like crafts I suggest checking them out. They are the best I have found.

 I really like the frosty. This isn't a very good picture of it. It is light and dark blue metallic, and has some glitter thrown in just for fun.

I really like this one. And I finished it up by tying a little ribbon bow under the stake holding the cake, and tying gift wrapping ribbon under the balloon with several different colors.

Bear's insisted on a portrait with our new season ladder. I finished it up by tying little bows around the top of the presents of NOEL.

I really liked doing this one. But gluing the little gems on made me hate my decision. lol

Our leaning tower or treeza!!  I think it has a little personality. And in the end only a few ornaments were broken.

Popping way to much popcorn with the grand idea of making a popcorn garland.  It was great for a while. But Bear's couldn't really help and he wouldn't let me sit and string it, so I got about 3 feet done before I had to put it away and never finished. lol go figure. But we had a blast popping the popcorn. ha ha

 Presents painted and made with real wrapping paper glued on. ha ha ha

Bear's was really proud of these presents and his new shirt. ha ha ha

The Noel didn't turn out so great, I am thinking of re-doing it.  I painted the snowflakes on with a piece of plastic I had cut out of the cover from Bear's Elf on the shelf box. lol they are glittered as well.

Bear's wanted to craft with me again, so he molded this fantastic rabbit out of his play-doh. This is the first time he had made something on his own without being asked to do it. He was playing on his own, and came up with it on his own. ;0D

 Yah that is a bent toilet paper roll. ha ha I am super ingenious like that.

 Okay so I got the idea off of pinterest. lol I can't take credit for it. lol

 I think the Bear glittered this really well. lol

Bear's helped me spray paint the canvas, I stamped out the circles, Bear's dumped the jar of glitter out on it, and helped me glue the buttons with a low temp glue gun. ;0D We had a lot of fun. And Baby Bear gave it to his teacher Miss Malaine whom he adores. ;0D He handed it to her and wished her a Christmas! He hasn't got the Merry part down yet. So he tells everyone Christmas. lol

 I think this one is my favorite one so far. It is huge, and I am happy with how it turned out.
 I traced out the letter, and cut it out on the paper I selected. And then realized it was backwards. Yah..... Go me!!! lol

Baby Bear thought he would get in on the crafting action. Yah he is really talented. lol

 I really like the canvas, but I am not sure if it was the paint, or if the vinyl just didn't want to separate from the transfer paper. I really had a hard time with this one. It was meant to be a gift, but I just wasn't happy with how it turned out. I had another one, but didn't have the time to try it again.  Oh well. It was still fun to do.

This was also a gift and I thought it was perfect for the person we gifted it to. I hope she liked it.
Ornaments made with Pledge floor mop, and extra fine glitter. It is so easy to do, and fast and fun.

This is all for now. More to come soon I hope.
