pink milk & pink boxes

Started off Labor Day right with some pink milk and a plan.
Unfortunately, I don't see much resting from our labors in that plan today.

There's definitely too much to do. Including putting on a Buzz Light year jet-pack and saving the world.
I know this glazed over look all too well. She's putting together a plan... What will she do next?

If she doesn't save the world at least just a sister in distress.
(my sister sewed and painted 20 of those Buzz jet-packs for my nephew's birthday party. She's pretty awesome!)


Oh, and the plan also includes filling up all my Spark class kit boxes. Towers of pink cake boxes have taken over and surprisingly the kids haven't even bothered to destroy them. Probably because they know that evil zurg mommy would appear if they are even touched.
happy labor day!

I love the, "What will she do next?" Adorable picture of her 'saving' her sister. I have two girls about the same age as yours, and I totally see them doing this together. So cute!

when I saw the stack of pink boxes I hadn't scrolled down enough to see your daughter, so I was thinking 'cup-cake sized" boxes..? then laughed as I noticed a sweet girl almost completely hidden within the stack- hope it all goes as planned :)

Hi Lizzy- I love the shelves/cubes/ storage ?? next to your boxes. Can you share where you got them or what company/store? I LOVE pink, so the boxes are making me think pink. Thanks for your blog. Coco

I love...love...love the pink cake boxes. Stuff like that just makes me happy.
P.S. Can you have Spark in Springfield, MO next year? ;)
The Ozarks is very pretty in the fall.

Trish said...

Have you ever thought about doing a mail order/online Spark class? Though I'm sure it would be so popular that it would be too much work. Wish I lived closer so I could attend SPARK. Also, just want to say that I love your taste in music on your blog. I don't get to listen to the radio very much, but I always come to your blog and turn the music on while I'm scrapbooking or cleaning house.

Paula said...

Heather Innusa said...

Those buzz lightyear "wings" are top notch - kuddos to your sis!! Looks like fun! The pink boxes are exciting!

Anonymous said...

Can you post a lin to the buzz party - we are having one too & would love some ideas :)

Sharla said...

My 4-year-old is going to be Buzz for Halloween. Would your sister care to share how she made those? SO cute!

Janna said...

Wow! I just loved this post! Your photo of pink milk made me think, "Hey, I have some glasses like that, and I'll bet my boys would love to drink their chocolate milk from one with a crazy straw!" And I love the photo of Avery sitting next to the tower of boxes. It really puts it into perspective just how many boxes there are! Your daughters are both so adorable, I know #3 is going to be just as cute.

Jeanna said...

I always marvel at how your blog is just so, so, so pretty! Almost like you live on a different PLANET than the rest of us--the colors, the wonder, the magic, the BLUE eyes everywhere.

Your Spark plans look divine! Keep reaching for the stars and sharing every moment with us.
