Make your own spill-proof snack container.

I had saved a couple of empty boxes of cashews and today I finally figured out what to do with one of them. When Matthew was younger we had bought a spill-proof snack container, so I thought I would make one for Grace. 
I started by stripping the box.
Then using ModPodge, I glued a comic strip around the box and applied a generous coat of ModPodge to it.
While I let it dry, I cut an opening on the lid so our cutie pie can fit her hand through it and reach for those yummy snacks.
I will allow plenty of time for the coat of ModPodge to dry and I will have it Grace tested and approved!!!
I did sand the cuts to smooth them and avoid scratching her little hands. She has been using it with no trouble.

Having fun on a snow day.

Snow day, lousy weather, three kids stuck inside the house all day: a recipe for disaster.
Well, we managed to make it with no damage.
Thanks to a great gift that the kids got for Christmas, we spent part of the morning making puppets, and what a treat to have MommyO with us.

The afternoon was less creative playing baseball and boxing compliments of Nintendo Wii.
After I left for work, MommyO threw a dance party. What a blast!
