Peri Has a Slide!

So I've been wanting to get Peri something to play on outside for ages, but we just don't have the money or the space for an entire swing set. So instead we just bought Peri a small plastic slide. She loves it.

She slides sitting down

She slides feet first on her tummy

And she also slides head first on her tummy. She did it all by herself too!

She also likes to peek out from under the slide. What a goofy kid we have! 
This is one happy sliding kiddo!

Some of you may look at those pictures and think, "What does she mean they have no space?" because clearly, there is a lot of space in our yard, the only problem is this portion of the yard isn't fenced in, and that would make even more money to keep random passersby and destructive teenagers from hurting Peri's swing set (we're not so worried about her being kept in the yard, as she doesn't usually go outside to play without us anyway).

So yay for slides!

More Baby Crafty Goodness

So I'm really loving that Peri is enjoying doing crafts with me. It is so much fun to watch her start to get the hang of it! We've been doing some things around here to decorate a bit for St. Patrick's Day. We aren't too big on the holiday, but why not right?

So about a week ago Peri and I made green glitter shamrocks out of paper plates. She has so much fun with glitter, and it was a pretty easy thing to get going. We made two! Then about a week after that, we made rainbow clouds! I really like this craft, they look so cute! It's just construction paper and cotton balls glued to some more of that paper plate we had lying around. Then we put them on the screen door outside. Like this:

Peri is happy with where her creations ended up! 

On another note, I totally got a Silhouette Cameo (go here if you don't know what that is), and it is the greatest thing since sliced bread! We've used it a couple times already, and I'm really loving it! So far I've made a few shamrock spinners, a couple LUCKY banners, a gift box for a friend's wedding, and cut out some business cards for mi familia. A million and one uses for this thing, let me tell you.

I made one large spinner
and three smaller ones, because my nephew wanted to help make some.

I cut this one out first

Then I used the letter cutouts to make a second banner. This one doesn't look as cool with the lamp lit up, but I still like it!
