Party time

Last week a couple of kids in our Toddler Time group celebrated their second birthday.  Their mommies were so nice and brought cake, cookies, and a whole bunch of birthday fun to our group.

You know what?  Even though it's super exhausting to be a mommy, one of the perks is that I get to see the world through a set of fresh, new eyes.  Through Baby Chuck's eyes, everything is new and amazing.  Take a look at the birthday hat and bubbles, for example.  Baby Chuck just loved them both.

Crapty DIY 2013 New Year's Glasses

Every year I keep meaning to get a pair of 20-whatever glasses, but I always forget.  This year, I combined my desire for glasses and crapting by making two pairs of 2013 glasses.  Hubby and I'll be wearing these as we ring in the new year.  (I tried making a tiny pair for Baby Chuck, but he ripped up my initial models.  Maybe next year?)


If you'd like to make your own pair of glasses, you can use the printable below.  I think this would be a fun activity for a party or crafty kids.  I cut the pieces out, traced them onto cereal boxes, cut the shapes out, decorated them, and then taped the pieces together.

And because Baby Chuck went to sleep early tonight, hubby and I had a bit of fun shooting some photos with the glasses.





Let me know if you try making these for yourself. :) I'd love to see photos.
Happy New Year!  See you in 2013.
