Our Little Football Player

Looks like we have a football player in the family. Mason just started this weekend and he did AWESOME!! He didn't get a whole lot of breaks this weekend but he didn't complain.... :) They had 3 games and he played most of the time... poor baby!! He had 7 tackles and carried the ball for 15+ yards. He just loves it!! Check out these pics!! I am so proud of him!
Here's Mason kicking off.... And the hand off.....

And that was our entire weekend!!! LOL

Hair decor

My first attempt at a fancy little hair thingy. See? I am such a tomboy. Went to a bridal shower where the theme was wearing a fancy headpiece.... well... my choices were a baseball hat or a cowboy hat. Then the light bulb went off and I remembered I had these pom pom flowers already made from a prior project.... so here was the final result.... added seed beads, black netting and a few feathers to a headband.... :)

Landon's first cafeteria meal...

This is so cute to me.... Landon started 1st grade and was off to a great (and expensive) start. We packed an extra SPECIAL lunch for him with all of his favorites. When he got home later in the day, he told Dad how BOTH of his lunches were great!!! He said it was the best chicken tacos he EVER had.... hmmmm..... so we emptied his lunch bag out and all the goodies were gone. Go figure. We tried packing the lunch on day 2 and again... he came home telling us the cheeseburger was AWESOME!!!! Wow.... I thought we packed a PB&J...which later was taken out of his lunch bag in one piece still. Again... nummies were gone. We now are -$5.00 on his lunch balance. Go figure. We are now on week 3 of school, and although it is a little more expensive, I think we have learned that Landon prefers a HOT meal at lunch and it makes him happy to go through the cafeteria and get what he wants...notice the chocolate milk on the tray. Hmmmmm. What a little stinker.

Melted Crayon Art

So these are allll lover the internet... especially over at (my newest obsession.... thank you Tiffany). Such and easy and fun project to do. I didn't do a step by step since there would be far better ones posted (i.e. Meg'sblog )... so here are some of the beautiful colors that Landon and I made. :)

It was really quite cheap and easy (go get the 64 pack and an extra 24 pack of Crayola crayons that are on sale for back to school). All you need are the crayons, a canvas(you can even find them at Big Lots) a hot glue gun and a hairdryer. Be patient, grasshopper.... the results are awesome!!!
