Woodland Faerie Party: The Invitations

by This is Carrie on August 31, 2010

This vintage fairy art was $2 well spent.  I first used it to create the invitations. With a touch of glitter, the hand-delivered scroll invites set the stage for a magical party. Find more Woodland Faerie Party posts HERE.

Making Stuff: Doll Diapers

by This is Carrie on August 30, 2010

Against my better judgment, I let the girls purchase Baby Alive dolls with their birthday money.  In about 2.5 seconds, they had both soaked the one disposable diaper included with each doll and were begging for more diapers for their naked doll tushies. 2.5 seconds after that, I found this tutorial for baby doll cloth […]

On our way out of town, we made a stop at the Cedar Breaks National Monument Honestly though, nature is way more fun to look at as you’re whizzing past on a bike.

Surrounding the lake, we found a great trail for the kids to practice their mountain biking skills. Even Baby Brother took his little Strider out for a spin.

by This is Carrie on August 26, 2010

When I found this tutorial for crocheted hair bows, I knew they’d be the perfect accessory to spice up the girls’ otherwise bland uniforms for the first day of school.

Brian Head Vacation Recap: The Lake

by This is Carrie on August 26, 2010

Just 20 miles southeast of Brian Head,  just past Cedar Breaks National Monument and the herd of sheep on the corner of highway 14 & highway 148, lies Navajo Lake. At 10,000+ feet altitude, I thought the water was going to be much colder than it actually was. It was a gorgeous place to waste […]

The First Day of School

by This is Carrie on August 25, 2010

I’m not sure who was more excited, them or me? Pumpkin biggest worry about Kindergarten was that “I don’t know my math yet”.  Imagine her relief when the hardest things she did all day were walking in a straight line and using scissors to cut paper.

Brian Head Vacation Recap: The Stars

by This is Carrie on August 25, 2010

Even without the shooting stars created by the Perseids meteor shower (which just happened to coincide with our vacation), the clear, night sky atop Brian Head Peak would’ve still been amazing.

Brian Head Vacation Recap: The Resort

by This is Carrie on August 24, 2010

A ski lift to the top of the mountain made for a great day of riding. The resort’s Mountain Bike Park included all sorts of fun freestyle elements. Todd had a great time trying out the jumps and drops found throughout the downhill trails. And depending who’s asking, I may or may not have ridden […]

Fourteen Years of Wedded Bliss

by This is Carrie on August 23, 2010

The truth is, we might have forgotten about this year’s anniversary all together if it hadn’t been for a thoughtful card sent by my sister-in-law. If I could high-five that 18 year old girl in the picture, I would. She picked a good one. (I would also like to tell her to take care of […]
