Mommy/Daughter Time

My girl loves Disney. She really loves the Princesses!  Jasmine is her favorite. When her Daddy and I saw an advertisement for Disney on Ice last week,  I knew I was going to try and get her tickets to the show.

We scored great seats (Thank you Craigslist!). Then we made plans with our BFF's and we headed out! In the rain, no less.
The show included Alice in Wonderland. This was one of the coolest parts. The numbers line up numerically.

Peter Pan came flying in and so did Tinkerbell. She even sprinkled pixy dust all over, it helped us fly home at the end of the night!
The Loin King came on after intermission. (I kinda felt like the first half drug by and then they rushed the second half.) 

Snow White was there! And the Seven Dwarfs. The Short Chic loved it when Sneezy blew down all the other Dwarfs.
Oh and Thank Goodness Rapunzel and Flynn Rider were there! ( I think she got a hair cut.) I loved the floating lanterns.

And then Miss Olivia's favorite came on! Princess Jasmine and Aladdin!! As soon as my girl saw her she sat up properly in her chair and never took her eyes off of Jasmine. I honestly think she thought Princess Jasmine would look right down on her and say, "Hi Short Chic!"

I think we are ready to go to Disneyland/Disneyworld. THAT is a whole other post, I am sure!

Jasmine and Aladdin on the magic carpet. The Short Chic thinks when she is grows up she is going to marry her brother. I think it is cute. Well, right now, when she is four it is cute. We will talk about the legalities of it later. But for now, she thinks Aladdin is her brother and Jasmine is her.

Princess Tiana was there doing some might fine skating!

I was a little disappointed with the finale. Yes, ALL the Princesses were there (even Mulan) but they only went to one side. So we got to see half of the Princesses and did not get to see the other half. Boo!

This Princess Aurora was super tall. This picture does not really show it but man, she was tall!

My Short Chic and her BFF Little Mess. They enjoyed another year of Disney on Ice!

For the record, I had wanted to have Mommy/Son time the very next day. I wanted to take The Boy to see The Hunger Games, but he went to his Dad's house for the weekend.  Then he told me it was okay for me to go without him (I am guessing he did not want to see it as much as me).

My Weekend Project: A PVC Camping Lamp Post and Flag Holder

I have seen a few of these around campsites and I knew I would like to have one. The only problem that I had is The Husband.

He already thinks we drag too much stuff with us when we go camping and if I had told him my desire to have a PVC Camping Light Pole he would have shut it down quickly!

So, that leaves a girl with only one choice: Figure out how to do it by herself.

I did some internet searching and found a few road maps on RV forums. They seemed easy enough!

I visited the local hardware store for the supplies:

An exterior post lantern light2 inch PVC pipe (I used 5 feet but had to purchase a 10 foot piece)A 3 inch toilet flangeA 3 inch to 2 inch ReducerPVC GlueA 12 foot electric cord kit2 - 3/4 inch PVC Caps I also used a few supplies we already had on hand:

White Spray Paint

3 1/2 foot - 3/4 inch PVC PipeDrill Bits (1 inch and 1/2 inch)Tent Stakes

The first step was preparing the lantern light. I could only find black in the store and I knew I wanted all white. I covered the gla…

Camping Activity: Wood Chip Necklaces

My worry in taking a wide range of kids camping is that the younger kids would be happy just playing together but the older ones, the one's in that awkward pre-teen/teen age, would think everything was so uncool they would just sit around and mope. So I designed a few activities that would hopefully get them up, participating, and moving.

 I came home from work a few weeks before the Family Camp-out and found my neighbors had trimmed their tree limbs and piled the mess in my yard. I refrained from getting angry. Over a nice dinner, I asked The Husband to help me with a little project.

He looked at me in disgust. I was pulling him away from ESPN to help with an unnecessary camping craft.

 I admit I did some begging. In the end, The Husband borrowed his father's chainsaw and decided to help me cut medallions out of a limb.  His mood started changing, quickly.{I then begged him to let me try my hand at the chainsaw, but he would not let budge on that one. I had to settle for hol…

Hand Made Gifts: Tutu Ornaments

My  Short Chic is turning into a little dancer. To thank the dance teachers for their help, we decided to make them a little gift for Christmas. A tutu ornament.

Supplies needed:

Tulle. I selected black, white and hot pink. The pink and white both have glitter {I have been walking around for the past four days with glitter all over me!}. Glass Ornaments that coordinate with your tulle. Some kind of string {I used stretch magic}. And some super glue.

Step 1: Cut  the tulle. 

I learned, from trial and error, that my cell phone was roughly the right size. So, I used it as a template for cutting the tulle.  
Step 2: Tie the tulle to the string.

Using a simple slip knot, tie the tulle onto the string {or Stretch Magic}. I think I used about 40 loops per ornament.
Step 3:  Adhere it to the Ornament.
I do not have a photo of this step. But simply, you take some super glue and glue the tutu ring to the ornament. 
FINISHED!  Once the glue is dried, you are finished. {Well except the wrapping!} I …
