Its been a while.....

 I don't know where the time has gone in the last few weeks.....
 I saw this tree on Pinterest a couple of years ago
 you may remember me posting about it.
Well when I started preschool I knew it would be perfect
to hang the kids artwork from it.
 So we went through the scrap wood pile and created this,
I love the end result......thank you, Phil.
 One little boy said we need a squirrel....I'm on the hunt!
 Cory had a birthday this week, He's going to have a birthday party
coming up but we celebrated going out to dinner and Carroll baked him a 
Goofy cake and brought it over on Monday.
Which was so sweet!
What a precious young man we have....

I thought I would share the original, I can't believe how simple this was
30 minutes start to finish.....laying it out was the most time consuming part!

I can't wait to catch up 
take care,


  1. aw, heidi!

    Congratulations to your son.
    Have a nice week, lieve groet

  13. This is so cute. I love it and I can't believe that it only took you 30 minutes! I think it would look cute with your children's initials carved in the trunk of the tree or a special date. I love it!
