Coffee Filter Snowflakes

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Christmas trees, twinkling lights, Christmas carols and everyone’s favorite: presents! Time to bust out those credit cards and order all of your Christmas presents on Amazon! I know I am not the only one who does all of my shopping from the comfort of my couch. What a glorious thing! 

Winter is not everyone’s favorite time of the year however. Especially as we grow up; scraping the ice off your window every morning, driving in the snow, freezing your face off while you go for a run. Being a grownup is not fun! I am looking forward to winter this year though! This year is Bradley’s first year being able to play in the snow! We had the opportunity to go to the family cabin this last weekend and I was so excited to wake up to it snowing Sunday morning! I grabbed Bradley and as we were looking out the window I said it’s snowing!! Seeing it snow for the first time through my sons eyes was so exhilarating!

What is it about tiny humans in snow gear? Why are they so dang cute?! The snow was perfect for snow balls and building a snow man. 

B&E

I love watching the snow fall and I was so sad to leave the cabin and the snow. So to bring a little snow to us, we made some snowflakes! 

We made these last week, but I decided to make them again so I could share with you how we did it. 

All you need is coffee filters, paint, scissors, and some cute toddlers to paint for you!

Cute toddlers to paint for me.

Their beautiful work!

Fold, fold, fold and then cut shapes along the folded edge and the top if you want.

Done! You could iron these to get the folds and wrinkles out. I taped the snowflakes to the window. When the sun shines on them the colors are so pretty! 

This is such an easy and fun craft to do with your kids! 

I hope you enjoy this wonderful time of year and make the best of what we have left of 2016!

He is here!! 

Cooper Dennis Slonaker made his grand entrance into the world on Tuesday, October 11th, at 9:16 pm. He was 7 lbs. 10 oz. and 19.5 in. of pure perfection! 

Cooper

 I woke up Tuesday morning having contractions a few minutes apart, but not very strong. I was thinking that if this goes anything like my birth with Bradley then we were going to have a baby before noon!  Well, that wasn’t Cooper’s plan. After 14 hours of labor he was finally here! My contractions throughout the day were manageable and they were spread apart. So I spent the day going for walks, watching Netflix and splashing around in my birthing pool. #netflixandcontract. I can’t take credit for that hashtag. My husband is a clever guy!  

We decided to work with a midwife and have a home birth. I am so thankful that everything went as planned and we have a happy, healthy baby. The experience of having my baby at home was amazing! The best part was that there was no sleepless night at the hospital. I was already home, in my own bed, with my own pillow. It was glorious! The only downfall was no “free” room service. 😉

Bradley and I even got to have a little swim session in the pool!

Pool time  

I loved having that time with him. Holding on to every last second of my only baby! My heart breaks a little with the thought that Bradley is not my one and only anymore. But, I am looking forward to the challenges and joys of having two little boys to love! I have already fallen head over heals for my sweet Cooper. I know that loving both of these sweet babes will only better me as a mom and as a person. 

Mommy and boys

Can you tell I am a little sleep deprived?! 😉

My heart is full of love for my boys! I am so thankful that they are both happy and healthy. I am excited to take on the role of a mother of two! #momofboys

God is so good!

Welcome

Hey there! 

Welcome to all3sisters! We are Jaclyn, Justina & Michelle. And, as you may have guessed, we are sisters 🙂 But, not only that, we all live within 3 miles of each other! How awesome is that? It makes for lots of fun impromptu family get togethers (and very convenient babysitters).

We enjoy watching football, eating, playing volleyball together and so much more! We thought it’d be fun to start a blog together and share some of the antics from our crazy lives. In other words, we really have no idea what we’re doing. But…we plan to have lots of fun & hope you’ll join us for the ride!
