Monday Made It - July 7, 2014

Now that it is summer, it seems that I have that little bit of extra time to do things that I really enjoy, and why not share those things with you! I am excited to finally link up with Tara at 4th grade Frolics and her Monday Made It posts. I have been watching this linky from the sidelines and gathering awesome ideas since last summer, so today I am jumping in and joining in on the fun. Here we go.......

I finally found the time to sit down at my craft table and make my newest son's (now 3 months) name banner for his bedroom. I used the same colour scheme as my first son's but added a few stripes into the mix. I think it turned out pretty well. 

July 1st was Canada Day! A time to celebrate, however, the weather wasn't very cooperative this year. "Rain, rain go away" was the soundtrack of our house last week. With the rain, and the horrendous mosquitoes, we did not think it would be worth it to pack up two little boys to attempt to watch the fireworks. So I had to think of the next best thing.
Being at home full-time on maternity leave, my oldest son no longer attends daycare, so I try to think of little activities to do with him while his brother naps. Why not make our own fireworks with a little glue and glitter?

Thank you Pinterest and my local dollar store for helping me pull this off!

With my husband home on holidays as well, we finally made it to our family cottage for longer than a day trip! This is our first summer as a family of 4 and I am always amazed at how long it takes me to pack everything up. It's crazy the amount of "stuff" we need to survive 2 nights from home, with a toddler and a baby!

Here's a pic of my 3 year old heading down to light the stove in the sauna with his Pappa.

Last, but certainly not least. My son has made it to sleeping through the night!! He is only 3 months, so I am not delusional in thinking this will teething is inevitable, but I will gladly bask in all its glory for as long as I can! 

Looking forward to sharing more Monday made-its with you this summer!


  1. What a cutie! It looks like you had a very productive week...the "Evan" banner is so precious! I remember those days of packing EVERYTHING to make sure we could survive a weekend trip with two little boys... Thanks for sharing!

  2. Sleeping through the night is a huge MADE IT! My daughter is 2 months old now and sleeps between 6-7 hours so hopefully I will be sleeping all night soon!
