Penny Spinners and Dinosaurs

Our ping pong table was finally delivered..and with it came tons of card board. Like all kids D grew up being a big fan of boxes and now H is following suit.. but usually they have always focused on playing inside the box..




So I was pleasantly surprised and incredibly pleased when I asked H to help put the little cardboard pieces in the recycling and he replied.. 'I think we can make something with them'


And so I went where everyone goes.. Pinterest! We started with making dinosaurs.


My proportions were all over the place.. T-Rex was especially disastrous since he could seem to stand upright.. but the kids didn't seem to care too much.




and then we made penny spinners.. except we used quarters..



I have a few more things I'd want to try with them.. not too complicated.. I like the easy crafts..

source I bought some multicolored yarn 

source the car looks easy.. and cute.. 

With the holidays coming closer I may be a little more MIA.. we have a trip planned for the holidays.. so this may be my last post of the year.. so in case it is I want to wish you all a very happy and wonderful love filled holiday and a happy happy New Year.. See ya in 2019!

lately - Thanksgiving

I skipped posting last week.. hope all of you celebrating had good Thanksgivings.. we had a pretty good week.. but very few pictures to prove it.. so you'll just have to take my word for it.

We started Wednesday night out with dinner at a friends house.. stayed out late.. the next morning stayed in bed way longer than we usually do.. and spent most of Thanksgiving day doing nothing.. just as planned. We ate chicken instead of turkey.. played Blokus with the boys, it was our first time playing it and everyone enjoyed it.


Friday we shopped a bit online.. we did venture out to the stores in the afternoon.. we were supposed to pick up a ping pong table we had bought online but when we got there it took the store 20 minutes to locate it..inform us that it will not fit into our minivan and then it took another 40 mins to return it. That was enough Black Friday for us.. We ended the night with a movie.. We watched Jack Frost.. 

Saturday followed a pretty similar pattern of chilling out, we tried out a new fast food joint in the neighborhood. Played scrabble another new one for the kids. H was my helper and D managed a few good words.. Ended the night with a movie.. 3 Men and a Baby this time.. I have a thing for the movies of my childhood.. not as funny as I thought it would be.. more sentimental.. H fell asleep mid way.. :(

Sunday was our big day.. we had gotten tickets to see OZ in a local theater, Two River Theater in Red Bank. The production was an hour long and was geared to a 4+ crowd. We thought this would be a good way to introduce H to the theater. It was perfect. They kept the story simple, it was a cast of four actors who played various characters. The show was interactive.. we were barking like Toto, kawing like crows and clapping for thunder and the best part they picked children out of the crowd to play various small parts. The cast was great with the kids.. no easy feat. Our little H got pick to play the part of the Scarecrow!! 





He could barely see from underneath the big hat. Later that week we also watched The Wizard of OZ.. the green witch gave H nightmares :( But they found the transition from black and white interesting.. and otherwise enjoyed the movie. Did you know that in the book Dorothy has silver slippers and they changed it to ruby red for the movie?

The break came to an end on a high note.. and now we count down the days till Christmas break arrives..

Society6 Holiday Giveaway

This past week has just been blah.. the weather is getting colder.. M has been working a lot.. and D and I are still coughing.. My in laws who live with us semi permanently are going for a visit back home (Pakistan). They have a daughter there.. three grand kids and a whole lotta family and friends.. so we have been busy with last minute shopping, packing, weighing..

Just a couple more days to go.. this month has been so slow.. so I will bide my time with a little giveaway.. courtesy of Society6 I am giving away a $10 gift card and a little something special from me :)










Happy Thanksgiving!

Sick Day

So the little one brought home a cough last week..he's all better now.. but I got bronchitis and D has a touch of pneumonia.. :(


Have you guys seen Haunting of Hill House? M and I currently watching it.. not binging.. one nightmare inducing episode a night is really enough. It is very good.


I'm currently reading Next Year in Havana.. I am really liking it.. I am half way through. I especially am loving the historical aspect to it.. I am constantly finding myself wikipedia-ing things about Cuba while I read. 


I'm currently drinking lots and lots of tea.. they have a tea for just about everything..

Weaver - Taken in a small concrete hut in Pakistan, a hut as large as a small bedroom, a hut with four men and two children weaving together various pieces of wicker furniture. This particular man, whose hand is the focus was working on a chair. Such intricate labor intensive work requiring such attention to make a piece so often taken for granted.

Inspiration

I'm feeling a little uninspired this weekend.. I started and restarted this post a few times.. just not feeling it.. so instead of a regular post I thought of doing a post of inspiration this week..




I've been thinking about H's upcoming January birthday party.. he is already set on his theme.. but how fun would an art party be? Though this would obviously be more suited as a summer party.


and how cute as these

Weathered Door - An old door, obviously aged, paint peeling and the appearance of rust. On the door is an old antique knocker that to me looks more beautiful old and worn that I can ever imagine it new and polished.

Happy Halloween

This past month we had Halloween on our minds.. the boys thought up of new way to decorate the house..



M cut the spider webs on the windows out of garbage bags..



The spooky hands were created using latex gloves and a sharpie 


and upcycled milk jugs.. these the boys really enjoyed making.. picking out scary faces and helping with the coloring as well


We also hosted a little Halloween party at home with our friends.. photo dump below :)








Happy Halloween!!
