Legoland Tshirts

For our Family Vacation we made as many matching shirts as possible for the places we'd be going to.  Today's post is the Legoland tshirts I made.  Our family is a big fan of the LEGO movie, especially the Batman quotes.  So we let the each person pick their favorite quote then I used my silhouette to cut out a coordinating picture and the quote out of heat transfer vinyl, ironed it on, and there you have it! Legoland tshirts!

Universal Studios Tshirts

Today while we're experiencing all the Universal Studios Fun I thought I'd share with you our Tshirts I made for today.  With 6 kids at a theme park it's easier to keep track of everyone if we're all wearing matching shirts.  Since the Minion Mayhem ride is new at Universal Studios we wanted to have Despicable Me related shirts. So using my new favorite toy- my Silhouette Cameo I created this design.

Even my 3 year old loved it! It's a great vegetarian meal, healthy, and a nice soup for cold days.  Here's the recipe-

The Potty, my book to help potty-train your child

As my first child grew and experienced certain stages of growing I started writing simple books that I could read to her and influence her in a positive way through the books.  The illustrations were simple, but she loved them.  One of my most effective books is "The Potty". I used it to help potty-train all my kids. Here's some more information on where you can get it-

Arizona Renaissance Festival

This last weekend we went to the Arizona Renaissance Festival.  It was my first time going here- growing up in southern Utah we had Renaissance stuff every Summer so I had a general idea of what it'd be like.  The Arizona Renaissance Festival is a big event that lasts 2 months here.  Open only on the weekends it's like a renaissance theme park.
