Armed with the hot glue gun and other sorts of crafty stuff Chandler and I have created some fun things for around the house.
This is not a craft it is Brinlee doing what she does best. I have been wanting to make this for a while now. A friend from Ogden had one in her front room and I just loved it. All it is is an old window I picked up at the antique store, a piece of wood painted white (I used bead board because I am cheap and we had it), dried flowers, and moss.

What do you think? Too much bead board for the kitchen?

The other kid friendly craft Chandler and I have been working on is this cute little turkey. I know it isn't close to Thanksgiving but I wanted to make something fun Chandler could be involved in to put up as a decoration around the house.

Cute and super easy. All you need is pine cones, feathers, google eyes, and pipe cleaners. The pine cones came from a neighbor and the craft supplies were at Michael's.

Brinlee is now three weeks old and is fitting in with our family perfectly. Chandler still likes her and is always wanting to hold and give her kisses. Life with two kids has been a little bit of an adjustment but we are all getting use to this new routine (as if we had one before now). Dave has been back to work for four days now and we are still surviving. The house is messy and our dinners consist mostly of breakfast and stuff out of a box. It has only been three weeks so I am not really pushing myself to hard. Although I started going to the gym this week and my legs are pretty sore. Oh well I did just have a baby, did I think I was going to be able to run a marathon?

Still not sure what to do with Chandler all day long. Sometimes I wonder if I am cut out for this stay at home mom thing. I mean don't get me wrong I love it and would never ever want to go to work, I just don't know what to do with little kids all day. If any of you have good ideas/websites or anything like that pass the info on.

Pretty cute kids don't you think?
