Roll the dice, dinner game

Once again I found a COOL idea on Pinterest!
Add one die to your dinner table. When he moans and groans about eating his food have him roll the die to see how many bites he HAS to take to be dismissed.  That was the original idea.  Beckam had his own idea (which I went with and enjoyed much more.)  He would roll the die take that many bites and then roll the die again and take that many bites.  FUNNY BOY!!!!

Back To School Lunch Boxes!

If you've used heat transfer vinyl you know you can't iron on slick material.  A friend discovered (quite by accident but I'm SO glad she did) that if you lightly steam regular vinyl it will stay a LONG time.
So I used outdoor quality vinyl cut it out (regular cut NOT reverse) and then lightly ironed it with a little steam to "stick" it permanently. (If I hadn't used the iron it would come off the first day of use)  I used the same vinyl on the plastic cups but no ironing needed :)

We threw a surprise VERY LAST MINUTE shower for my cousin recently.
They are having baby number 2!  So I made some onesies.
Baby Boy's big sister is Presley, Baby Boy's daddy works on crains, and who couldn't use a little cash!

Crayon Art

Thanks to our HOT weather and my fun friend Jennifer she made some Crayola Art
(DO NOT attempt with other brands of crayons, you will not be successful)
She taped the crayons to the board and then set it in the 115 degree sunshine!

the board on the left fell shortly after "take off" so she just let them lay flat and melt.
SO cool!

Drive In Movies I LOVE amazon I get a few boxes a week (OK, a day) so we decided to get creative and make some "cars" and go to a "drive in" movie for lunch.  It was fun explaining a "drive in" movie to them too!
Thanks to Pinterest for a FUN idea!

Craft Room Update

Really, it's an office, but for Project Purple purposes, it's a Craft Room!
I got busy organizing and cleaning out and arranging "to do" projects.
(why does it seem it will never get done)

AND the closet.
I don't have "before" pictures as it was SUCH a mess I couldn't get a lens wide enough to take the photo!  TRUST ME!

One day while I was gone and while Dad was sleeping the boys decided to set up "center party" Centers all over the living room and playroom.  It was so fun and creative I HAD to take a photo of each center.  They also explained each one to me and I'm going to attempt to do them justice!  This Early Childhood Education degreed mom was SOOOO proud!  ENJOY

Crab Sandwiches

So on the way home from the pool (hints no shirts) Dade asked me "What are we having for lunch?"
My reply: "Crab Sandwiches"
Dade: "YUCK"
Me: "It's OK, you don't have to eat it"
Needless to say they both GOBBLED them down!
PBJ sandwich, apples, marshmallows, chocolate chips.
I found the idea on one of my FAVORITE sites:
