Day 170 - BEST CRAFT of the Summer, Potty Training & Birthday Preparations...

The girl's LOVED today's craft. It is easily their favorite of the summer (so far). Today's craft brought squeals of delight, constant giggles and lots and lots of smiles. What could possibly bring so much happiness to my girls?

Their very own Bubble Blower...

This craft is super easy and super fun...great combo :o) For today's craft you will need...

Dish detergent, sock (or rags), rubber band, plastic water bottle and water...pretty basic stuff (isn't that always the best?).

I really don't think you need instructions, but since we took pictures I will share...haha! It is funny that the girls think taking pictures is just part of craft time...hahahahaha!

Attach a rubber band around the sock so it doesn't pop off later...

Hillary Ashton finished her bubble maker first so Sophie Le knew what was coming when she dipped her bubble maker :o) She was so excited!

I found this craft on a really cool blog...but I forgot to bookmark it...sorry!

We had some more success in the potty training department today! Julianne is really doing great...if only her mama would work on potty training her more than twice is a two week period we might make some progress! Sorry baby!

We are having Hillary Ashton's friend party this Friday and Julianne and Hillary Ashton's family party this Saturday so we spent some time today working on decorations and finishing up their birthday outfits. I will save the decoration pictures for tomorrow (but I will tell you that I LOVE them!). Here in a peek at their outfits (I cannot believe I made them matching outfits!!!)...
