Lots of Butterflies!



Tomorrow Bella's class is celebrating the 100th day of school for this year. They have different activities planned that all have to do with the number 100. One of the things the students {and parents} get to to do is wear a hat they made with 100 things on it. Bella brainstormed with me for awhile and we came up with the hat you see here.
We used my Martha Stewart butterfly punch and some double-sided foam tape and in about an hour we had the hat ready to wear. It's the most crafty thing I've done in weeks around here. Besides adding food coloring to pancake batter. =) Bella is happy with how it turned out. I was just thrilled that she didn't involve Pokemon characters in any way, shape or form. She does have quite the love of Pokemon these days, but just maybe these little paper butterflies will take her mind off of them for a day or two.
Tomorrow we will get to see a "sneak peek" inside at the newest addition growing in our family. I've got an ultra sound appointment and am hoping that everything will look just fine!

Love that cap. It just screams "SPRING!" And we're having those pancakes next weekend... or maybe I'll wait until St. Patrick's Day. You know. The pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. That would be fun, too.

I am a teacher and a mom of 3 so I LOVE the 100 day hat!! Every year our kids bring in a collection of 100 things. This year was lego and a fruit loop candy necklace with 100 fruit loops on it! I can't wait to hear about the ultrasound. I think it is a little girl named Charlotte or Scarlett or Lucy!
