If you know me and my boys, you know they are full of energy (understatement to say the least) and I am always thinking of new ways to keep them entertained. Whether it's at dinner in a restaurant, in the car, or at a friends house...I am fighting boredom at all times.

I found this idea and I am so excited to try it.

It's called "mash-up."

The basic idea is for kids to create three or different sets of cards with different features: head, torso and legs/feet. The can mix and match them to create funny and freaky characters. Think of them as homemade fashion plates, only of space aliens, robots or dolls. Whatever your kid digs.
Awesome & cheap. an excellent combo.

for the last 6 months I've had a blog, but never wrote a blog? what.
I'm going to try and blog faithfully this time. keep your fingers crossed.
down to business...
kyle left again last night for the week. it doesn't get any easier that's for sure. honestly i never really realized how much i rely on him and his presence...until now. weekends are fun though, anticipating his arrival and the boys get excited. although i know it's hard on them not having him around during the week. but life goes on...

overall the weekend was nice. Friday @ the big cheese -celebratory pizza with friends,
Saturday - my precious niece's birthday ice cream social and Sunday - laundry duty...& escape from the heat.
good things.
until next time.
