Never a dull moment .....

..... when you have a video monitor and you can spy on your kid!!!

We were woken up by Logan this morning yelling "Help me, Help me! Im trapped!"
(Glad the CRIB is serving its purpose)
However! The day is approaching we have been putting off! He proceeded to kick his leg over the rail as if attempting to climb out. I personally think he was acting out his own Diego Episode. He then grabbed the diaper stacker with both hands and started yelling "PULL PULL PULL" 
I finally went in and got him...
(To be continued....)

5 hours later @ naptime!
*        *          *

After our typical naptime routine I read Logan two books and tucked him in. He laid down and told me Goodnight.

Too easy right??? Yep. 
15 minutes later (after silence from his room) I casually checked the video monitor.....
I expected to see my usual passed out baby....NOPE!

I hit the video button and what do I see???
My Neked baby jumping up and down singing "No more monkeys jumping on the bed!"
(Side note: he was put to bed in a diaper and shorts)

He then proceeds to perform the Downward Dog Yoga pose at the Camera

"I saw on Pinterest....."

If you ask my husband most of my sentences lately start with....
"I saw on Pinterest....."

This is how this project started!

If you also ask my husband i'm notorious for starting projects and not finishing them!

But this time I actually took the time...ordered the pictures....picked them up...and completed the project all in the same night! HUGE success people!

First I found this Wall Decor on Clearance at Hobby Lobby for $20. It is all made out of wood so I knew it would be perfect for my Mod Podge Picture Project!

I ordered 3 8x10 prints of pictures we took at the beach this summer and cut them down to size to fit the squares.

Because the picture didn't fit exactly because the pictures weren't wide enough I painted the edges white to fade the picture into the background of the overexposed background. White worked perfectly! It was even more perfect because I already had the acrylic paint :o)
I Mod Podged the wood and the back of the picture and let it dry....

Then I Mod Podged over the top :o/ (The blogger said at this point you will think you ruined your picture---and I'd be lying if I said I didn't, even with the warning)

But it dries clear giving it the perfect touch! 

Now the hardest part is deciding where to hang this 14x40ish masterpiece!

PS this project was EASY!! and only cost $30 total!!!
