Busy Boo!!

Boo is always busy…from the minute she gets up in the morning this little girl doesn’t stop!! I could literally take 100’s of pictures of her crazy, just having fun moments of life, but of coarse I have to just pick a few!! This week we finally had a taste of winter so we spent a lot of time at home doing projects, baking, doing school, and playing…..

We played in the snow!!

Boo painted with ice cube water colors made by mommy…I made fun shapes of ice and then we watched them melt. After they melted the girls enjoyed their new water colors.

Obviously, at 18 months old Boo has little interest in the actual letters on things but we did pull out the old name cards from when Pumpkin was in tot-school. We introduced “Bottle Cap Match Up”!! Boo was very happy to have ‘real’ school work like her big sissy. I have seen many posts on the bottle cap match up over the years: I just write letters on top of the cap with a permanent marker and store all the pieces in zip lock bags.

Yes, that is what it looks like my tiny Boo in her friend “Peach’s” jumperoo!! Isn’t that where all 18 mo olds like to hang out??!! Bounce away baby…get rid of some of that energy!!

I am still not quite daring enough to trust Boo with a “rice sensory box” so for the time being we will be using various things to introduce the concepts of transferring, pouring, and keeping things confined!!

This was my favorite part of the week …making yummy “snow ice cream” with the girls!! It tasted great and it was so much fun watching their faces as they dove into the bowl of snow 🙂

That about raps up our Tot School week…below are a few extra’s if you!!

Lindsay at “Bytes of Memory” has a great printable for “bottle cap match up”

Snow Ice Cream


  • 1 gallon snow
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups milk


  1. When it starts to snow, place a large, clean bowl outside to collect the flakes. When full, stir in sugar and vanilla to taste, then stir in just enough milk for the desired consistency. Serve at once.
