Sunshine Sunday - bellybuttons, batter, and beautiful art

Rex made a crucial discovery this week.  I came downstairs and he told me he had something to show me.  His Kix cereal fits perfectly into his bellybutton.  Victory!  I love it when he does goofy stuff.

I also love letting my boys lick the bowl when we bake.

I'm pretty sure they love it even more than I do.  It didn't take Baden long to figure it out.

Now that I finally have a little guy in school, it means a lot of priceless art is coming my way.  I'm kind of excited about it actually.

I asked Rex what the best thing about school was after his big first day.  His answer?  "The crackers."  Yup, those must be some crackers. 

Are some of you excited about school starting again?  Did the summer fly by super fast for you, too?

my son likes putting raisins in his belly button...although, I'm pretty sure he'd think Kix were cool too!!

Art was my favorite thing about school too. I quickly found myself drowning in it though. We found a kids style artist tote but still we were drowning. It's a good idea to figure out a way to store it all now before it starts to take over your house! I have started a photo journal for my boys so we can toss the actual art and store the photo, except the real masterpieces, we keep those. Good Luck!

The summer went by in a snap, but I'm glad for the school schedule. Why are little boys so obsessed with belly buttons?

Cheri I'm sorry if I'm repeating myself 'cause I can't remember anymore if I said this or MEANT to say it-- I love that your boys are half dressed like mine are!
And also, I think we need a tour of your house. You have such interesting, different architecture that's not normally found in UT. I love that.

And also-- I love LOVE those name tags you put on your boys' clothes. I know I already said that one. Sooo awesome.

Saw a really cute post online the other day where the used one of the online photo book programs, took pics of all the kids' art, & made a book. Then you don't need to keep every piece and you have a great book.

You ARE baking with the salmonella-free eggs, right? :)

I'm so glad that I'm not the only one who'll let the baby lick the bowl. :)

Those pictures are so cute. Sometimes I think I bake just so there's a bowl to lick.

That is the cutest picture ever! Your little guy is adorable!

Cheri, you are absolutely correct about receiving a TON of preschool art. I am doing the photobook pic idea, but would love to actually hang up some of Tyler's art in our house. I have thought of painting a hall on our main level with magnetic paint (heard the paint takes a ton of coats and may not work), hanging up cork board (don't want holes in the art) and considered trying to adjust your train magnet board somehow. Perhaps a crafty momma can help us all out?? Something easyish? Peter is not too handy. Thanks!! LOVE the blog, love seeing you and the kids even more. Love, Heath
