anyway, we went to michael's to picked up some beads and spray paint. after they sat in the garage for a month or so, we finally got around to making it happen. i strung beads while stan spray painted. i did however, miscalculate my total number of beads needed, so i'll be making one more trip to michael's before it's finished. (i was 4 short on one kind and 6 short on another!) pretty close for a guesstimate, though. :) i love it when a plan comes together!
awhile ago i brought my pin cushions upstairs for a project, and well, since i don't always put things away like i should... they're still upstairs. so today i walked by the counter to find them rearranged (by emma) to this cute little tomato man. i really don't think i could take a pin out of him now. he's too dang cute! i should not put things away more often. lol.
yesterday we were kid central. we invited one of emma's school friends and the cousins over to play. they ran around having a blast & made up dance routines with their chinese jump ropes. how great is it to grow up so close to your cousins. now, i'm definitely not a video professional, and this was shot on my little flip video (which i love!)... but i thought it was so darn funny. they made this little routine up and asked if i'd record it. so here it is guys! :)
oh! and one more side note for today. our family went and saw the new disney/pixar movie UP today. we don't go to the theater often, but this was seriously the best movie i've seen in a long time. the story & life lessons were wonderful. very family friendly, funny, cute, sweet, and even a little sad. i would totally go see it in the theater again! stan and the girls loved it too. just thought i'd share. :)
