While the boys away...

Dave is out of town again for work. The first time he went my friend Lexi and I had a fun girls week. Our husbands work together and they both had to go. She slept over, and unfortunately Aubree and I got the flu so we had to call it off early. This time her husband didn't have to go, so no sleepover, but definitely girls day! It was so much fun. She came out all day yesterday. We ordered pizza,

Watched the Rocker (which was hilarious)

Went to Michael's to buy crafty stuff..
And then crafted...these are for one of Dave's co-workers who just had a baby. The diamond on will be argyle once I finish stiching around the black ones and then stitch the criss crosses. I stole both ideas from Lexi.

I'm also wrking on getting Aubree potty trained. She doesn't want anything to do wtih it. So I tried to get her excited...I made her a potty chart to put sticker on every time she goes in the potty.

I took her to pick out stickers she wanted.

And prizes for every 5 stickers she accumulates.

As you can see on her potty chart she has yet to earn a sticker, but she now loves her pull ups and can get them on by her self, so were on the right track...wish us luck!


  1. Adorable onesies and board! Did you straight up hand stitch them on? Great job!

    Good luck with Aubree's potty training! :)

  2. You always do such a good job with your crafts! I love the argyle onesie and Aubree's potty chart.

    Hey, I don't know if this will help and I've never tried it since I don't have kids. But, I heard someone say that instead of rewarding your kids for going potty, reward them for staying dry for an entire day. The people who have told me this say that it goes by faster. But, I've also seen the other way work too. I just thought I'd give you tip. :)

  3. LOVE the shirts. I'm totally copying. You are so crafty. I'm excited to steal more ideas from you..... The PIE pizza is our favorite. The rocker is hillarious. Sounds like you had a great time.

  4. AH! I miss hanging out with you guys so much. I keep bugging Ben that we need to come out to see you.
    YOU HAVE TO teach me how to make those shirts. That is the cutest thing in the whole world.
    I {heart} crafts.
    Good luck with the potty training - we are doing the same thing over here...
    I'll have my people call your people and we'll schedule a night to get together - we miss you guys!
