Today Maisie is 4- and earlier this week my dad was 76- What we’ve been working on for her bday (Instagram)

 

It’s a busy birthday week at my house- today Maisie turns 4! I don’t have any pics of her yet this morning, but wanted to update everyone on our projects (and my dad’s bday) this week.

Pic of Papa wearing Maisie’s hat 🙂 –

Maisie on my dad’s bday- she dressed as a ‘cowgirl ballerina’:

We build ultra realistic log cabin dollhouses for fun. I love doing miniature things. Maisie complained that her dollhouse cabins had no bathrooms- so my dad made an outhouse out of poplar, barn wood, and cedar shingles- he even made the handle for the door out of copper wire he hammered and aged!

New #dollhouse #outhouse collaboration for Maisie's 4th birthday with my dad! We have to get this completed by tomorrow- her actual #birthday. She was complaining that her dollhouse dolls had no place to potty, so Papa made the outhouse like one would do a real one- he framed it with #poplar, I believe, added #barnwood sides, #cedarshingles… it is a 2 holer. I did the poo and gross things under out of #polymerclay- it even has a #snake in there, but you can't see it without a flashlight. My dad and I stained and tore teeny bits of printed 'newspaper' and added that to the septic system lol. I purchased replica 1:12 1918 and 1897 mini #searscatalogs from #eBay and they're actually READABLE. R made the rotating base and painted it with milk paint. I am currently doing the #landscaping. #miniatures #dollhouses #outhouses #momlife #surprise #present #birthdaypresent #grandfathers #replicas #tinythings #blogger #toddlerlife #childhood #diy #handmade #incredible #dolls #dollhouseminiatures #dollhousefurniture

I did the ‘poop’ and a snake to go in the 2-holer, out of polymer clay- and we have teeny antique (readable) Sears catalogs in there!

R made the base, it revolves- and painted it with milk paint.

R put the static grass down, but I did the rest of the landscaping and painting and stone crafting out of egg cartons- and I made ‘weeds’… it is a marvelous collaboration! I can’t wait til we surprise her with it later this afternoon!

She’s also getting an ant farm, which she asked for 🙂

Will update more later! xo

We just had a small family party- my parents, Jeff, R, her 3 brothers- with a cake and a couple of gifts. It was a lovely time. We will be having her ‘big’ party on Sept. 19th.

she’s not too sure about this cake on fire stuff

11180624_10153306904864024_3350454731864914757_n

but she liked the cake just fine

12002216_10153306904919024_331052735259619459_n

she was VERY careful about not getting her dress dirty

yummm… cake

my father pointed out that this coffee maker looks suspiciously like a toilet

12009551_10153306907444024_8111133475191964415_n

so, we tried it out with GI Joe

Probably NOT how we teach young kids how to make coffee

11988604_10153306907539024_5679770203958471512_n

looks cute in her kitchen, though

TODAY MAISIE IS A YEAR OLD!!!!! The Dance Time Boys (From BabyFirstTV) Personalized Bday Vid!

12004886_10153305624074024_1619751466141625369_n

the child is in shock- this is the first time she viewed it and the look on her face was PRICELESS!

Maisie is ADDICTED to BabyFirstTV’s “The Dance Time Boys”

She’s wiggled, twerked, shaked her diaper even before she could walk because of them.

I bought a personalized birthday video and it was SO worth it!

If you have a child who loves them as much as mine does, get a personalized video for your kid 🙂 There is a link to ordering one on the link above.

Sam’s Crazy 26th Birthday Surprise

Maisie's 'card' to her oldest brother on his 26th bday- she's the Birthday Axe Fairy

Maisie’s ‘card’ to her oldest brother on his 26th bday- she’s the Birthday Axe Fairy

My oldest son, Sam, turned 26 today. He does a show online and broadcasted from last night to early this morning for 12 hours.

Sam after the first part of the surprise.

Sam after the first part of the surprise.

At the stroke of midnight on the 9th, we surprised him with cake, glitter, and a card- and Maisie dressed up as the birthday axe fairy with a glowing plastic ax and birthday tiara. I used 2 full cups of glitter confetti, which I later attempted to vacuum up with a shop vac and a Dyson.

We STILL have glitter EVERYWHERE.

It was pretty raunchy- poor guy.

He has viewers who chat with him during his streams online- and they were secretly sending msgs to ME to do things… Sam ended up getting hit in the head with a (faux) wet diaper- and another asked for me to fill one later with HP (brown) Sauce to simulate poo and get him with THAT.

it was only HP Sauce

it was only HP Sauce

Of course, I complied. Here are the highlights (I am just posting part I- the rest are on my youtube channel):
