Fabric Flower Headbands...

This is my latest project. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Are they cute? Would you or your daughter wear one? Suggestions?

I know this should be fun....

We have been an apartment for about 6 weeks now. We will be moving out November 30th. The internet service in this area is horrible to say the least. I am trying to update and upload more photos, and I will be getting to that soon, real soon. I promise.

Star Wars Party

When my ideas of a Buzz and Woody party were foiled by Brady's love of everything Star Wars I had to go back to the drawing board to make his third birthday come to life. There was one requirement set forth by my "client", to make Star Wars Brady's reality. I knew this task would not be easy. I mean the kid sees Star Wars in constant replay in his mind and reenacts the movies on a daily basis. I know more about Star Wars than I ever imagined possible.

The Star Wars extravaganza is over and all we have is photos and memories. I want to share a few photos of Brady's favorite part: Darth Vader. I'll share more details later. All of the kids loved Darth Vader, even the girls were chasing him around with light sabers.

Having a heart to heart. Luke and Darth.

Darth was amazing! He was so hot I could see the sweat dripping from his mask. Not one moment did he complain, remove his mask or break character. He truly loves his job and it showed. Worth ever penny. It's amazing how much I stress about the little things. The whole day made this little guys dreams come true. I'll show more details soon about games, food, etc.

Buzz and Woody

When planning Brady's Birthday I thought Buzz and Woody would be so much fun. I started purchasing stuff way in advance as to acquire more than necessary in true Witkin style. Something happened along the way, Brady developed an opinion of his own. That opinion had no room for Toy Story and little room for anything other than Star Wars.
So here is his very forced Toy Story party a month early before school let out. Honestly, he could care less! This was more for me than him trust me.

Looks like we are on to a new obsession. Star Wars! Our home has been filled with big characters, little characters, lightsabers, books, and in the works...a new bedroom. Things are about to great a little more hectic as we are going ahead with a remodel and addition.

We've been living in a little over 900 sq. ft. for almost 5 years now. With the addition of each new child we loose a little more space. I've had to get pretty creative about how I organize and store all of our worldly posessions. I do a pretty good job with what I have to work with. With that being said head on over and read about my creative obsessions.

Happy Birthday Kiya!

Things have been absolutely crazy around here. Watching three beautiful children grow up right before our eyes, starting a new business..or two Downey Lacrosse LLC & Memory Works, a remodeling project and more, lots more. I am feeling a little overwhelmed but thoroughly excited for what is to come. I am feeling a little more organized with my new computer. Oh did I mention our old one crashed...bad. Hope to be a little more organized and post more frequently especially with B in school 2 days now. Wow! I almost feel like I am a bystander in my life things are moving too fast.

Snow much fun

It was great to be able to take a few days away from the house and enjoy the snow. We got at least 4 feet at the cabin. The kids loved it! Sledding, snow angels and snow men, oh my!

A little joy

Sippy cups and silverware. Who knew something as simple as this would bring me such joy. C is pink, B is orange for now but will be switching over to blue in a few months then A will use orange. Do you see a somewhat psychotic trend? more to come on this.

I must say that when the house is quite I wonder...

Years of 'pageant supplies' are going to good use. Ladies and Gentlemen I give you the next Miss USA. Makeup courtesy of MAC and Brady.

Valentines Treats and Lovin' Life

Camryn's Valentine treats are ready to go. So easy I just printed a Valentine sentiment onto sticker paper (thanks to Scott I am totally loving the sticker paper) and wrapped it around her favorite candy bar, Hershey's no nuts. :) Totally simple and cheap too!

My little Avery Noelle is enriching our lives and we are so thrilled to have her. This is what it's all about... Love & Marriage.
Our little bundle...smiling already she's not even 2 months yet! Tutu's already? This is actually Camryn's.
