I have a habit of getting way too much when trying something new.  In this case, we were trying out an idea to get the kids to pay attention to General Conference for church.  The activity was that if they heard any of 5 key words they would get a colored bead representing that word and at the end of the session they would get to make a bracelet.

Well, I bought a case of beads thinking that Payton might like to make some bead jewelry.  Eventually, they were put away and forgotten about.  I decided to pull them out again and try out some different beading crafts.

Payton went with a necklace and Lincoln decided to make a lizard keychain.  They both did really well putting their things together.  I think I am most impressed with Lincoln's keychain because I had to figure out how to put it together too.  Haha!

Lincoln had a little accident in the bath tub.  I am not quite sure how it happened but bonked his head on the soap holder in the tub.  Ouch!  That will definitely leave a mark or a bump anyway.

Frozen Viewing II

We planned a Frozen Viewing Party with a few of our friends from church and their families.  My friend Ela has a great space in her house to project the movie really big on a screen.  It was awesome!

Ela's daughter had just had a Frozen themed birthday party the night before so the house was decorated really fun and she had lots of left over desserts, which was a bonus for us. :o)

We also planned a pasta bar potluck which was delicious.  If you haven't tried a tomato based sauce mixed with a touch a alfredo you have no idea what you are missing.  Yummy!

I wish I would have thought to take more pictures but it totally slipped my mind.  It was a really nice evening.

Frozen Viewing

Frozen came out digitally this week and we decided to have a little Frozen Viewing Party with a couple of Payton's school friends, Riya and Dorie.

We had pizza for dinner and some fun movie snacks to munch on while watching the movie.  The girls AND boys had a lot of fun.  Lots and lots of giggles happening in our house tonight.  Love it!

There was a show both on screen and in our family room with the girls jumping up to sing and dance with each song.  They are so cute!

Story Time

I walked through the family room to find the kids holding story time with their stuffies.  Really cute!
