Closet and Hangers

I saw on Pinterest to turn your hangers backwards at the beginning of the year.
If at the end of the year you still have items turned backwards it's time for those to
MOVE ON to a better home.  LOVE this idea.  So I did!

Valentine's Day 2012

Breakfast (notice the praying Beckam, precious)
cherry flavored water, heart shaped bread with peanut butter and sprinkles, berries and heart shaped strawberry, red egg in toast, a few candy hearts

I silhouetted the boys mirrors for part of their Valentine's present.
I add to it daily!

I had made the PBJ dipped in chocolate last year and thought I'd do it this year too.
Good thing, as I was asked early that morning if I had made it again. He REMEMBER of course.  WHEW that was close.  X and O's for a tic-tac-toe game (see top of lunch box) are oyster crackers with food marker X on one side and O on the other, heart shaped strawberries, personalized covered vanilla milk box and a strawberry milk straw.

Kindergarten Valentine's party
Notice the make your own sundae station used ice cream sandwiches instead of scoops, GENIUS!
make a warm fuzzy
make a ball and string game

Dinner by mood lighting.

Lego Organization

For Christmas the boys got a lot of Legos to add to the massive collection.
I'm NOT complaining AT ALL.
Just stating facts.
So this CDO mama had to do something about it.
So we went to work.
First stop Target for their after Christmas sale on organizational items.
We got two wide drawer sets, one three drawer skinny set, two five drawer sets.
Then we went to Home Depot and purchased a 15"x96" white melamine board.
I had them cut it to 82" which is what we needed to fit the top of the drawer sets described above.  Then we went to work organizing.
We put the "together sets" in plastic bags with the instructions.
The instruction books (that didn't have the pieces all together) in a drawer (or 3).
Then the extra pieces were sorted by color.
If my CDO mother was doing it she would sort by piece type NOT color.
But that would require more drawers than I could fit in my house so we went with this method.  LOVE YOU, MOM!
