DIY Picnic Table

Hello friends! Today is the last day of week one of Camp Happy Hear! I hope you’re enjoying so far, and I hope you enjoy today’s craft. “Candy, would you like to go on a picnic with me?” Sparkles asks. “Where?” Candy asks. “Um…outside? On the ground?” Sparkles replies. She isn’t sure where else to have a picnic. “I can’t be expected to sit on the ground!” Candy scoffs. “My pants are too fancy.” I know what would fix these guys’ problems…a picnic table! We’re going to learn how to make one in today’s post. Here are your supplies, popsicle … Continue reading DIY Picnic Table

The Valentine’s Party

Hello friends! Happy Valentine’s Day! Want to see a fun party with the Small-fries? I sure do! (also for some reason this post literally took an entire day to make so please like it) Here’s a photo of the room before any party guests arrived. The refreshment table. There’s also this lovely corner filled with flowers and a guitar. Oh look! The first guests are arriving. The Caramel siblings snap a quick photo together. They’re all dressed up for the occasion. Chip and Sandy rush to greet them. “We’re your host and hostess!” Sandy smiles. “Not by choice…” Chip mutters. … Continue reading The Valentine’s Party

Spectating At The Bearlympics ~ Winter Bearlympics 2022

Hello friends! Today I have a fun little photostory about Cherie and Candy watching the Bearlympics. Enjoy! “The Bearlympics are pretty awesome, huh?” Cherie asks. “I mean I guess. They’d be better if I was in them.” “Oh really? What sport would you play?” Candy looks down in confusion. “I dunno.” “You could figure skate like Gisselle,” “Eh…I do like the pretty dresses. But I’m no good on skates.” “So I guess that rules out hockey with Cloud?” Candy nods. “You could try snowboarding like Waffle?” “Snowboards aren’t very fashionable.” “Well, you could join Cali on the slopes.” “Yeah…but I … Continue reading Spectating At The Bearlympics ~ Winter Bearlympics 2022

A Cozy Christmas Pajama Photoshoot

Hello friends! I’m not even going to say how many days are left until Christmas…it’s starting to stress me out… Today we have a cozy photoshoot of the Stones all dressed in their matching Christmas PJs.

Chip went first, seeing as he’s the oldest. Sandy. Cherie. Cherry. Of course, these two had to get a photo together!

That’s What Christmas is All About ~ Collab with Liz

Hello friends! The calendar…it keeps changing days on me. Christmas is in…less than five days? That doesn’t seem right. How about…Christmas is in 369 days. There we go! That sounds a lot better. Anyway, for today’s post, I’m collaborating with a really awesome blogger named Liz …you may have heard of her. (And if not…I just want to um…talk) She’s super sweet and sarcastic. Her posts crack me up. Currently, she’s hosting Above the Snow(her version of Blogmas) Check it out! Anyway, she wrote today’s post and I added the photos. I think it turned out really cool! “WHAT?!” I … Continue reading That’s What Christmas is All About ~ Collab with Liz

Swirl’s Secret Santa

Hello friends! Today it’s time for the Small-fry’s Christmas gift exchange! This story is essentially two parts, selecting the gift and then the exchange. It follows Swirl, so enjoy! I stared at the slip of paper in my hand. “Cam Johnson,” was written on it in green ink. “What on Earth should I get for Cam?”  You see, the name on the paper was the person I had to buy a gift for. This year, we decided to do a Secret Santa gift exchange instead of getting a gift for every one of our friends.  I laughed at that idea. … Continue reading Swirl’s Secret Santa

Skipping Stones Episode 5 “Christmas Chaos”

Hello friends! Can you believe we’re already at episode five of Skipping Stones? I almost didn’t make an episode two after how much work episode one was, but I’m glad I’ve continued this series. Anyway, I wanted to make a Christmas-themed sitcom. This one is a bit shorter and simpler than the other episodes seeing as I have a tight schedule this month. It doesn’t have too much of a plot, more like funny anecdotes of Christmastime at the Stone household. Anyway, without further ado, I give you…Christmas Chaos! “I’ve got so many gifts to wrap!” Mommy looks over at … Continue reading Skipping Stones Episode 5 “Christmas Chaos”

Hot Cocoa Party

Hello friends! Happy Monday! If I was doing my normal Blogmas posts we’d be halfway done by now. But we’re doing 31 days! So we’ve still got 18 days left! Today, the Small-Fry girls had a hot cocoa party. It was Cherie’s idea, so she’s taking care of all the hostess duties. Look at the hot cocoa station she made. There’s hot cocoa, mugs, toppings, and cookies! Sandy is a little disappointed that she isn’t in charge. The other Stone girls are just excited for hot cocoa. Oh, look! The first guest is arriving. “Welcome to our party! Feel free … Continue reading Hot Cocoa Party
