Visiting Unikitty at Cloud Cuckoo Land

Unikitty

Jade’s been talking about The Lego Movie for months now … Jade’s gone Lego Movie crazy !!!

Jade still isn’t very comfortable using scissors so we brainstormed a project. She really wanted to create something with the Unikitty character (I had nooo idea what she was talking about). After some internet research, we recreated Unikitty’s home in Cloud Cuckoo Land.

Finally, last week we purchased The Lego Movie DVD … and now I finally “get it” !!!

Awesome !!!

Happy Happy Birthday Chalk Art

My daughter is super, super excited about her upcoming birthday this month.

She will be FIVE and starts kindergarten in September. It is a very exciting time !!!

I asked for “Pressed Pants” not “Plants” !!!

Pressed Plants / Drawing

All joking aside, Jade and I had a blast at StrongStart yesterday.

StrongStart is a FREE early education program in BC, Canada.

The top drawing is a fun doodle from our pressed plants (shown below).

Pressed Plants / 2

Jade really loved being in the trails and picking leaves and flowers.

And I really liked drawing from our exploration.

This exercise helped me focus on unique details and shapes of our local plants.

Lots of new art on Grandma’s fridge.

My daughter Jade, her cousins and myself drew voraciously at Grandma’s place.

Dog Days Of Summer

Dog Days Of Summer

Lately, we’ve been dog-sitting our neighbour’s amazing black lab.

The dog’s name is Gunnar and he’s eight years old.

He has the perfect temperament for children.

Gunnar doesn’t jump up on people and he doesn’t lick faces either.

He’s the perfect friend for Jade.

She absolutely adores him.

Jade’s Hotel Transylvania Birthday Party

Hotel Transylvania / 1

Happy Boo-Day !!!

My daughter Jade absolutely adores the animated movie Hotel Transylvania.

It made a super fun theme for her 4th birthday party.

Enclosed are a few memorable pics from the day.

Hotel Transylvania / 2

Group Mural

The party craft was a giant 8 foot wide poster.

Each kid drew a monster and decorated their own bat.

Even some parents joined in the fun.

In the end, the mural was like a HUGE card for Jade.

Pin the Head on Frankenstein

Jade was the 2nd closest.

The game was a “monstrous” hit with all the kids !!

Hotel Transylvania / 5

Birthday Cup Cakes !!!

Of course, no party is complete without some sugary goodness.

Jade had a great time but was COMPLETELY exhausted by the end.

She went to bed at 4:30 that afternoon … And didn’t wake up until 5:oo the next morning !!
