I'm back. &nbsp;I feel refreshed and ready to get back into the swing of things. <br /><br />The holidays were awesome but exhausting all at the same time. &nbsp;It's amazing to me how much is built up in celebration for one single day. &nbsp;This year, my family tried to really have a smooth easy Christmas and focus on the true meaning of the day. &nbsp;We started the morning off... yes BEFORE breakfast and BEFORE presents... by blessing strangers and I think, were truly blessed in return. &nbsp;Then, we headed home and well watching the children open presents is probably one of the greatest presents that a parent can have. &nbsp;Their eyes light up with excitement when they see the gifts... wrapped. &nbsp;It only gets BETTER as they open them all! <br /><br />There was of course, LOTS of eating... and just hanging out spending time together. &nbsp;The time was a true blessing for all of us.<br /><br />We stayed with the no stress theme of things and went over to a friends house, put the kids to bed (except my A decided to stay WIDE AWAKE until 2 AM) and the mommies and daddies played games. &nbsp;What is it about a grown up playing charades that is SO incredibly funny? &nbsp;I don't know that I can put it into words... BUT, it IS funny!!!<br /><br />My husbands unit hosted a family day so we (the kids, my mom, my brother, and I) went to his work. &nbsp;We got to do fun things like clear rooms in a house, shoot targets, go through an obstacle course, ride on different military vehicles, see their equipment and lots of other FUN stuff. &nbsp;We ate hamburgers and hot dogs and made it home just in time for an awesome nap.<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-xjoIVbkmV58/TyikwWqle8I/AAAAAAAABIs/Xyclazu6Yqw/s1600/328522_864979926465_33408823_38805757_498041879_o.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="213" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-xjoIVbkmV58/TyikwWqle8I/AAAAAAAABIs/Xyclazu6Yqw/s320/328522_864979926465_33408823_38805757_498041879_o.jpg" width="320" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">Me shooting...

I just HAD to try it out with my little ones when I was on my desperate crafting search.  I REALLY love the way that it turned out.  If I were going to do anything different though, I would have gotten a larger canvas.  I <i>think </i>that the one I got was like 16x20 (maybe?!).  Bigger would have been MUCH better, you can always add more rows.  Anyhow, luckily my munchkins still have small hands so it worked out GREAT.  Had I had the larger canvas though, we could have added a row of hands for each adult in the house too.  Lesson learned.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; margin-bottom: 0px; margin-left: 0px; margin-right: 0px; margin-top: 0px; text-align: center;"><br></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; margin-bottom: 0px; margin-left: 0px; margin-right: 0px; margin-top: 0px; text-align: center;">So, I went to the craft store here and the canvases were on sale.  Who <i>doesn&#39;t</i> love a sale?!  For a 2 canvas pack, I paid $6.95.  Add in a bottle of green paint (washable of course) for $2.99 and I was set.  If only I had remembered my 50% off any item coupon... it would have been even better.  Oh well.  Another lesson learned.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; margin-bottom: 0px; margin-left: 0px; margin-right: 0px; margin-top: 0px; text-align: center;"><br></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; margin-bottom: 0px; margin-left: 0px; margin-right: 0px; margin-top: 0px; text-align: center;">Well, I&#39;m SO grateful that the canvases came in a 2 pack.  If you look at the second picture, you can see where I tried to put my hands on and then had my little one stamping away... I had NO PLAN!  I visualized it perfectly in my head.  But, when it came down to it, it turned out AWFUL!  So, on to canvas #2.  Lesson Learned.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; margin-bottom: 0px; margin-left: 0px; margin-right: 0px; margin-top: 0px; text-align: center;">  </div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; margin-bottom: 0px; margin-left: 0px; margin-right: 0px; margin-top: 0px; text-align: center;"><br></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; margin-bottom: 0px; margin-left: 0px; margin-right: 0px; margin-top: 0px; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-77HaQmVW0Ag/TtfS097xf0I/AAAAAAAABDk/_aUOa88my5o/s1600/IMG_2468.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="213" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-77HaQmVW0Ag/TtfS097xf0I/AAAAAAAABDk/_aUOa88my5o/s320/IMG_2468.JPG" style="cursor: move;" width="320"></a></div><a href="http://www.handyhousemom.com/2011/12/handprint-christmas-tree_02.html#more">Read more »</a><div class="blogger-post-footer"><img width='1' height='1' src='https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/2402113482379098524-5338064856128728544?l=www.handyhousemom.com' alt='' /></div>Handy Housemomhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/10576670154167105469noreply@blogger.com3tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2402113482379098524.post-74080697308791137082011-12-01T14:33:00.001-05:002011-12-05T22:09:48.747-05:00Finished Melted Snowman Ornament<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">So, they are dry and hanging... check them out...
