Baby Love and Chore Chart

I know it's been a while since I posted something...but I had good reason! I was busy with this little guy! Meet Clawson, the newest member of our family!

Isn't he such a sweet little man?!

On another note...I know New Year's is past now, but I thought I'd show you what I put together for our New Year's Resolution as a family. My sweet SIL asked for one of these so that her family could help her with her cleaning, and I had to make me one too! Cuz don't we all get sick of doing ALL the cleaning by ourselves when others are more than capable? Plus, I just CAN'T do it by myself anymore. So here it is!

The purple and silver one I made for my SIL. The one below is the one I made for my family...with room to grow! (And, yes, I know that my wall REALLY needs to be painted!)












I used black jack for the names and Birmingham for the Chores header. The board was 8 x 24 for my SIL and 8 x 36 for me. I made the squares 3 x 3 inches and hard laminated them. Hopefully this works!
