Spring Weekend

We had such a great weekend!  Friday night we spent with Bryan's brother Greg and his family.  They were in town for work meetings so we met for dinner and went swimming at their hotel after.  I didn't get any pictures but we had a blast.  Eli LOVES Libby who is 9 months older.  He follows her around everywhere.  They even fed each other bites of bread at dinner.
Saturday we headed up to Pocatello to see Bryan's other brother Steven and his family.  Eli warmed right up to his cousins and had a blast playing, coloring with chalk, and seeing the baby chicks. 

Then Sunday Miss Mabli had a birthday party.  She's officially two.  We had to wake Eli up to go to their house so he was a bit of a bear, but a very cute one :)

Freezer Paper Shirt

I love being able to copy something I see that I usually can't afford and making it my cheap version ;) I love this 'hello' sweatshirt but not the 50$ price tag. 

So I headed to Michael's and found a shirt the exact some color for....2.00$! Can't beat that! 

I found a free template of cursive hello and printed it off then traced it onto the matte side of freezer paper. 

Then I used an exacto knife to cut out the letters. Make sure you save the holes in the loops to use when you paint. 
Freezer paper is the coolest thing and it sticks when you press it with a hot iron. This makes it fool proof for painting tricky letters! 

I love it! It Makes me feel Friendly ;) and for 2$ I think I might make more!!!

Huckleberry Syrup

Last summer in Alaska we picked huckleberries. It was a fun day with a rare day off that Bryan had! 

(Side note: I can't believe how much he had changed since July! He was so bald!)

I had some still left after making desserts so I canned some huckleberry syrup! I've never made it before but it's turned out so great!
