Wish I were a painter

A couple of weeks ago this talented blogger made this adorable sign for Kelly's little girl Harper. Isn't this the cutest sign that you have ever seen?? I love it and I want her to make me one for Ava. I had one leftover canvas from when we made this craft last fall. I love how these turned out, they still aren't hung up in Ava's room yet! Anyway, I wanted to see if I could paint up my leftover canvas like the one she made for Harper. Well I painted and repainted it about 10 times, it just wouldn't come out right. After about 10 times I got sick of painting it and I stuck the letters on, then I modge podged it. Everything looks better with Modge Podge!
Today, Brock was at the Boys and Girls club for almost 8 hours playing basketball!! He loved every minute of it! When he came home he ate 2 grilled cheese sandwiches with tomato soup and then went straight up to bed, he was exhausted!!
Ava spent today with Grandma Jan. They had a fun day and Grandma Jan bought Ava a new Cabbage Patch doll with a carrier. Ava loves her new doll!
I am home from work for the next two days with Brock and Ava! Tomorrow we are going to relax and I am going to get my hair cut and Wednesday we are going to a Children's Museum. I am looking forward to the next two days!!
