Look who is 3!!!!!!

That is right -- my baby boy turned 3 this past weekend. I am so happy and yet sad at the same time. My baby is growing up! :(
To celebrate this milestone, I visited his pre-K class on Friday. I read "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" to his class and then I show them how to make caterpillars. I brought precut foam circles and showed the wee-ones how to glue the circles on their foam"paper" to create caterpillars. It was a blast to work on a craft project with twelve 2 and 3 year olds. The energy in the room was out of this world. After the project Langston and I shared a special snack with his classmates -- sliced strawberries and bananas topped with whipped cream and sprinkles - AKA a strawberry and banana sundae.

After a morning of fun with Langston's Montessori class, he and I headed to meet daddy for some special one-on-one time. It is so rare that Langston has my DH and me all to himself -- so this was really nice. I think Langston enjoyed the attention.

Saturday was the big day -- Birthday Party DAY!!!! We decided to host Langston's party at J.W. Tumbles which is sort of like a My Gym or Gymboree but a little better I think. They did an excellent job of anticipating all of our needs and were wonderfully attentive to the birthday boy and all of his tiny guests.

Sunday -- I DID ABSOLUTELY NOTHING (except scrapbook). I never got out of my pajamas.

While in my pajamas on Sunday, I decided to play around with some of my scraps and do a little reorganization of my scrap "closet." (I'll have to share a pic soon) I discovered that I have a lot (too much) of negative alpha chipboard. Out of my mammoth pile of chipboard scraps I created a home decor item and repurposed the others as stencils. If you did not know, or have not tried it yet, negative chipboard makes incredible stencils. Given that I have so many 'fonts' I thought it best to alphabetically organize them so that they are easily accessible.

Below are two of the pages I created using my "recycled" stencils -- one has a fat "font" and the other skinny.

Have a FANTABULOUS Tuesday!!!!!
