capturing life via phone

It is Friday for three more hours so although this is late it still technically made it in time... not that anyone but me is keeping track.  

Here is our week in review according to what my phone was able to capture.

the weather has been so wonky here!  when i took this picture a few days ago it was hot like summer time!  today it has been cold and rainy.  what the heck!??!

 i made more of the new knot headbands
 and then got them listed in the etsy shop.

 changed up the chalkboard.
one of my favorite scriptures in the bible.
the key to so much in life is finding joy in everything and being able to be thankful for something every single day.  no matter what. 

 this is what our pup thought of my foam head
 grant's first baseball game for the season was saturday.  it was a rough game for our team but grant did great and looked cute doing it!

 love this. love them.

 felt bows and blooms can come on any hair attachment including elastic headbands

 i finally got around to making some bow ties
this was my very first one i made

 another trip to disneyland!  for this trip we split up boys and girls.  avery and i enjoyed some of the smaller kid rides... like Its A Small World.

 and she went on her very first roller coaster... the little one in toon town.  it goes pretty fast though! =)  
she totally loved it.

  we met up with the boys for dinner and then to watch the world of color show.  we had never seen it before and it was super amazing.  we were blown away and this picture does nothing for it!

 after the show was over but the music was still on bryan and avery took a few moments to have a father daughter dance.  he is such a wonderful dad and good man.  thankful for him.

 the knot headbands have been selling well and they are so fun to make and package up.

  a friend of mine was over with her four month old son this week and i just had to try one of my new bow ties on him to see what they looked like on babes.  pretty darn cute, right!?
  here they are.  these are the current bow tie fabric selections and i am also offering matching hair bows for the girls!  how cute would a matching brother and sister or dad and daughter be!?

  two or three months ago avery brought one of these tiny pine cones home for me from her school's playground.  i told her how much i loved it and i also told her that it made me feel special to know that she thinks of me while she is at school.  every day since then that she has had school, she has brought me home a new tiny pine cone.  i look at this jar that fills more and more each week and smile and the sweetness and kind heart of my little girl who wants her mom to feel special.

 this morning i began the registration process for avery to begin kinder next year.  i can't believe it.  time has flown so fast.  it doesn't seem real that she will turn five this summer.  she is so ready though.  i selfishly wish she wasn't.  with her summer birthday it would be easy to use that as an excuse to keep her home one more year. but she is so ready and so excited that i just can't do that to her.  instead i will let my heart break just a little bit as we prepare for her to be a big school aged girl.
 she was so excited about the kinder paperwork that she asked me to play school with her and we did.  she cracked me up with how excited she was to play school and write letters and numbers all over our chalkboard.
