Love Is In The Air

I made this wreath for the door. I got the idea on pintrest and made it my own.

These 2 love each other so much and play so well! Pillow fights, chase, ghosts,forts, sledding... is what our days are filled with.
I made these rose balls this weekend.They were time consuming but cute!
Target had these cute tin mailboxes for $1!!! I added a spray painted candle stick from the dollar store on the bottom of them. Each day the kids get a love not and if they are really good sometimes a treat.
I saw on pintrest again how to make these paper roses. I took a few pages from an old romance book I had and made it into a cute little rose.
Last year at Bunco I won the plate in the middle. I am cheap and not afraid to admit it! A couple blocks from hobby lobby, some paint and modpodge gave me some fun little plaques. The kids loved helping too!
I have always liked Valentines day! As my kids get a little bigger they seem to love each holiday more and more. I love decorating and making things special for each holiday. I love doing fun easy crafts with them and making the house a little special for each holiday.

Emmy's 5th Birthday

Happy 5th Birthday Emmy!

Emmy had a fun filled birthday! She invited 5 friends to have a "beauty spa day" We painted nails, put on makeup, had massages, got foot rubs, made slippers and much more! The girls had a blast and Emmy is still talking about how much fun she had! It was such a memorable birthday for Emmy!

I can not believe I have a five year old and how wonderful she is! Emmy is TRULY the sweetest most kind person you will EVER meet! She is constantly trying to help people. She got $50 in birthday money. When I asked her what she wanted to do with it her response was " give to to the prophet and homeless people". She is such a beautiful,talented,sweet, amazing person and I am beyond lucky to be her mother!

New Office

When you walk into our house the first thing you see is our office. I have tried to figure out what to do with if for years... I left the walls white for a while, painted a red faux accent wall, painted the rest of the walls... but nothing looked good. I was on Pintrest (shocking :)) and found this DIY wainscoting. Matt added a rail in the middle and made the boxes from a pack of baseboard. The entire office cost us $70!!! LOVE THAT. Anyway I am in full project mode and cant wait to do the next.

FInished Playhouse

I am happy to say that after months of painting, shopping and crafting that Emmy's playhouse is finally finished. I LOVE IT and am so happy that she loves it too!

2011 Recap

2011 was full of fun and adventure for the Crowley Family! We experienced so many fun things together! We finally finished our basement after 3 years of working on it. Matt worked so hard and the kids are beyond in love with it! We also got to go on a fun trip to California visiting Disneyland, Legoland, the beach and Matt and Teisha got to go to Hawaii and Alaska this year.

Emmy had an exciting year. 2011 started off with her 4th birthday party. 1 year later she still talks about it. Emmy got her ears pierced did multiple dance recitals, has learned how to read and so much more. She is truly the sweetest person ever and loves life!

Jackson has also had an eventful year. He has come leaps and bounds with talking, loves animals, outdoors, Thomas the train, sports, his happy (blanket), Emmy and laughing. We have loved watching him turn into his own person and are so grateful he is in our family!

Matt has had a busy year. He started it off deciding to go back into public accounting... He has spent much of the year traveling for work to Alaska, Washington and Chicago. He has enjoyed playing basketball, hanging out with family and friends, going on a few trips with Teisha and the family and so much more. He had a few medical scares this year when getting his appendix removed he ended up in the hospital a few days later because of multiple abscesses throughout his stomach. He has recently started an insulin pump and a new meter called Dexcom. It has been an adjustment but great for his diabetes management!

Teisha has had an exciting year... She has gone on multiple trips this year including Washington twice, Las Vegas, Alaska, Hawaii and California. It has been a year of carpooling, dance recitals, doing crafts, decorating her home, trying to be healthy, pintrest and taking care of her wonderful husband and 2 kids.

We are a blessed family and can't wait to see what 2012 holds!!!
