Here's a few of our latest and greatest adventures. On Sunday Doug and Sophia (mainly Doug) made this awesome dipped candle. They used regular craft wax and melted one red crayon in it. I thought it turned out pretty cool. Doug bought me the wax a long time ago so that I could make these. I'd seen something similar to them at the Parade of Homes awhile ago and wanted to replicate it. I kind of forgot that he had bought this and so we decided to make them since he was melting wax anyway. I thought they turned out ok. It's hard to see in the picture but these are actually those shadow box frame shelf things that are actually about 4 inches thick. I think it'd be cool to hang them somewhere and put something on them. We'll see. I forgot to post this awhile ago but my awesome friend Jen made me the cutest spring subway art! I totally love it! I love that she included taxes (her husband is a tax accountant as well) and Lilies. Perfect for our family! She also made me a really cute one for summer. I'll be sure to post it when it actually warms up around here and I can put it on display!
Finally, I found these shots on my camera as well. Apparently someone grabbed the camera when I wasn't looking!
Oh how I love my girls!

Sophia had her last day of Kindergarten this week and we had some fun celebrating! Before the last day of school we painted her nails with this cool crackle nail polish. Have you seen this stuff? It was pretty fun to use. I painted it on and she said, "Have I ever had black on my fingers?" Once it started to crackle she said "Oh my gosh! This is so cool! You are like the coolest mom ever!". Yeah. I know. Anything to help you look more like a goth. JK. It really did look cool though. These pictures definitely did not do it justice.On her actual last day I got to go help with one of the centers for their party. We frosted and decorated little graduate cutouts. The kids thought they were pretty tasty!
