Can You Hear That, It's Quiet!!!!

We have been traveling a lot lately and came up with a GREAT idea...I have been using cookie sheets for awhile so, my kids can put coloring books on them and the crayons don't roll everywhere. Or, I have magnet tins that they play with and it keeps them all together. 
I brought some random toys on one trip and they loved playing with them BUT, they of course always fell over. SO, the next trip I took all the little toys and put magnets on the bottom of them AND they loved it. They played over and over again with them. It made for a quiet time for MOM!!! YEA!!!

(Ya, do you notice my sons seat belt, he was yelling at me that he was "STUCK", I fixed it right after the picture!!! )

A Bench Made To Fit!!!

WOW!! I can't believe summer is almost over. We have been busy on vacation, playing and having fun lazy summer days!!! 

We have been changing around the kids rooms, which made me loose a chest that sat outside my closet. We got use to a bench to sit on, so we needed something to replace it. I knew, I wouldn't be able to find the exact size I needed, so I decide to make one. My husband was going to be out of town for a few days, so I got started. I found these great plans, here on one of my favorite BLOGS, 
Ana White. The plans were perfect, but it was too long, so I had to build it shorter. It took me a few hours, a little longer with lots of little hands helping. I LOVED The way it turned out and it fits PERFECT!!!! YEAH!!
