A Pinterest kind of day

Posted on Updated on

The kids don’t have school today (yes they are back in school, which is a story for another time!), I don’t work today, we don’t have anywhere to go until 3:30 when I have a doctor’s appointment.

Oh ya, it’s -27 windchill. It’s a Pinterest kind of day!

I sent my awesome hubby to the store last night to get a few supplies for us.

Here’s what’s on the agenda:

Painting. Lots and lots of painting. Which will make the kids very happy and the mama very nervous.

We’ve got two canvases for each of the kids and we’re going to do something similar to when we painted these awesome canvases.

And then we’re also going to try these ideas…





We’re gonna send hugs…



Make jello…



Make this yummy snack…


We’re gonna get crazy at lunchtime…

rainbow spag


And we might attempt to make lemon monkey bread. Looks and sounds very interesting…



We also might start working on the kids’ valentines. I love this idea…


{Couldn’t find a link for this one.}

And some other cute ideas. Except we’ll use Dum Dum Pops. We’re a Dum Dum kind of family.

But let’s be real.

It’ll also be a sleeping bags and tents in the living room movie watching kind of day.


And it’ll be a coffee drinking, guitar playing kind of day.


(Yes I started drinking coffee. Very tan coffee. And I finally picked up Mom’s guitar a few months ago and started playing. Re-teaching myself, learning new stuff, so in love with worshiping Jesus, and so in awe of our mom who wrote over 60 songs and allowed God to use her through the amazing gift of music, one that we took for granted.)

It’ll be a learninggamesforkids.com and  an abcmouse.com kind of day.

It’ll be a loving on Molly Moo Moo, crying cause she still play bites, and fighting over who can hold her kind of day.


And more than likely we’ll paint, maybe get one other craft done, and maybe, but I doubt it, get one special thing cooked. Or we might just eat the cookie dough with a spoon.

It’ll be a day when the formatting on my blog goes completely wacko. And it’ll be a day when I eventually say, “oh well,” and hopefully you can decipher at least some of it.

But no matter what, it’ll be a good day.

this is the day

      She’s a Shihpoo, tiny little thing. Will only get to 8 lbs at the most, no shedding, Yah! 🙂 I don’t think I blogged about her yet actually, just put something on FB. Bad blogger lately! Hope you are feeling better!
