PreK Activity Day -- Painters Tape Racetrack

This weeks activity is so easy.  But my problem was that Parker wanted to play with this for about... 5 minutes.  You win some and you lose some, I guess ;-) Luckily it didn't cost anything and took no time to make.  Here are some of our pics!

Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day:  A Recap

Valentine's gifts for Parker's class.  Cute idea I stole from pinterest.  Glow Sticks!  18 Valentines that cost 2$

My Valentine gave me yummy chocolates, a fav of mine!

A couple shots from Parker's school Valentine's Party!  He had all the food I don't let him have at home...

A Valentine he made for me :-)

 Daddy and Parker opening his present!

Matt opening his present from Parker... The wording says "best dad...hands down"
(another cute idea I stole from pinterest!)

And what is Valentines day without a few Valentine picture outtakes!  Hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day!

My Musician

My husband amazes me.  He has guts that I surely don't have.  He has dream and is going after what he wants.

 Its a BOLD move.

He wants to become an established Christian musician.

 He has a single coming out this month on iTunes.  Who does that?

Matt does.

He played at a local bar here in Deep Ellum last night and here are some of the pictures that I snapped:

Handsome 'eh?

Here are some of my favorite artist pictures of him:

Here is a link to his first song, you can download this for free @

Just thought everyone should know what a proud wife I am.

PreK Activity Day -- Letter Tracing

I've kind of slacked on doing actual 'activities' with Parker.  Last week we pretty much played monster trucks, rode his power wheel, and watched Caillou.  So this week I've decided to be a little more dedicated to create activities with a purpose.  This is one we did today.  

We are currently working on our letters.  I pinned these super cute printable letter tracing pages on pinterest (I'm an addict!)  

...and teaching Dad some things along the way...

(The dry erase envelopes were a lucky find at the Target Dollar Spot!)

Guitar player extraordinaire

My son thinks he's John Mayer... and Keith Urban... Actually, he's better. 

 He will become RICH and FAMOUS. 

 He will take care of me when I'm old.

Which is good, because I hear I'm expensive.

Just had to share.

Dear Parker

Dear Parker,

 You are 3 1/2 now. You have grown so much! Your dad and I are amazed daily how much we can love you.

 You are such a gentle spirit. 

Your imagination is amazing. Don't ever lose that.

 You can play in your own thoughts for hours. Dad and I love to come along with you...

 You love sports... especially hockey. You are good at sports too, and we don't know where you got that talent from.

 You are so forgiving, you are good at it. I can learn a lot from you.

 You are learning to write and to read, we take joy in seeing you grow and grow. But it also makes us sad... especially me, as you are growing up too quickly now. Sadly there will be a day when I have to let go, but I am assured that God won't let go...

 Always hold on to God.

 He loves you, He made you special for Him. You are HIS, not ours. He just chose us to help you navigate this journey called life.

 What an honor.

 Be open to His leading.  You are called to do great things.

 We are so in love with you baby boy.
