Well just like that they've been and gone. And now my biggest little guy is counting down how many days of daycare are left till the big school day arrives (13 and counting). This was the 'too cool' certificate Noah was presented with after his 3 visits.

The Death Star IS. FINISHED.
I reckon I spent close to 10 hours on this in the end. Only I think I'm a little too proud of my achievements, because now I almost can't bear the thought of a bunch of 4 and 5 year olds whacking the crap out of it and smashing it to smithereens. Boo hoo.
But I've been telling myself just to get over myself..and that it'll be a fun way to end the party! As long as we can put it on display during the party so others get to enjoying seeing it before the big lightsaber vs death star pinata battle, I guess it'll have served its purpose.
Note to self: next time I decide to spend so long making something I'm gonna make sure it's something I know isn't just going to be ending up in the bin!

Kinda sponge bob square pants meets something out of a (dare I say it) horror movie?!
♥ Winter bucket list ♥
With the weather finally acting more like what we'd expect from winter, it's now I find myself needing a reminder of what there is to enjoy about winter. Love this little printout I found over at Juggling Motherhood with some awesome yet simple ideas to keep those S.A.D (seasonal affective disorder) feelings at bay.
♥ New Wheels ♥
We are so very blessed that Mark has a job that allows him the use of a work car. And even more blessed that he gets a newer model from time to time. Really loving the first ever station wagon version that we started driving last week (the previous ones have always been sedans). Station wagons+family=a match made in heaven - it's already so much better for fitting kiddy bikes in and I'm already looking forward to the thought of taking away mountains of luggage on future road trips with ease!
♥ Brotherly Love ♥
