Saturday night at the E.D. wa hooo

So we had just gotten home from running errands and sat down to eat our Olive Garden when. . . my boy couldn't stop bouncing around on his chair. So of course I say "stop fooling around and eat your dinner" and not even 15 seconds later he tips backwards but then flies forward, meeting the edge of the chair seat in the middle. And you always know how bad it is by the scream. And I kinda knew right away we were gonna be headed back to town. ugh, and the food smelled so good too:P Hoping to eat it for lunch today.
Four stitches and four hours later we were home again. Lac. under the chin and somehow he ended up with an ice cream cone afterward.
On a creative note, I have finally figured out my camera and can now get the pictures off of it. Thought I was going to have to put more RAM in but it's just that my USB doesn't work well with the camera to transfer photos. So why I didn't buy a card reader sooner I will never know. Silly me. BUT, now I am going to work on re-taking several product pics since the other camera had no DoF. Small victories, I'll take them!

collaborative art project

Here is the first and second steps in our collaborative art project. Me, my 3.5yo son, and 2yo daughter. With all the chaos in between it has not been finished but hoping now that holidays and bday party are done, we can finish!
We started with black markers and my little spanish porcelain bird for inspiration, then I gave my son the paint.

I wasn't totally thrilled when he painted the birds blue too, but I got over it. Will post the finished picture whenever it gets that far.

birthday party, beads, and resolutions

Tomorrow is shopping day for cake and party supplies! B's gonna be 2 on Friday and I've promised a piggy cake. i'm feeling a little pressed for time this week and will be relieved to have the holidays and birthday party behind me. can't wait for her to open her big present, dollhouse and dolls! seriously having a hard time not just giving it to her.
The New Year came in WITHOUT a bang but I do have some good resolutions to work on. and the fact that I woke up sans hangover is always special. maybe i'm learning.
TIME TO MAKE SOME CARDS, that is, if I ever find the sugar cane cards I bought recently. (might've said hemp in my last post) either way, what will it matter if I never find them! some day i will be organized.
On the jewelry front, my son swallowed a bead today. He freaked out. I freaked out. What's not to freak out about? Since it was only dime size, I guess no worries. He was sucking on his big toe later in the day and I asked him what he was doing. his reply "I'm trying to get the bead out".
that's his best phrase yet.
