Girl Time

We've spent lots of time outside this past week. Cole and Levi have a new friend, Steven, that just moved in next door. Shurabe loves to help with raking and other yard work that is inevitable this time of year. And Hope loves to swing out on the back patio. She could spend hours out there, watching her siblings and barking at the neighborhood dogs.

Little Cutie-batootie
I've had lots of fun in my sewing room (it's actually just out catch-all-computer-dining-room). I made some fun Valentine gifts for our kids' teachers. I didn't think to take pictures but they were knock offs of these lovelies made by Lindsey at thePleated Poppy.

Last Saturday, I had a youth group event early in the morning. When I got home, Brian told me to go look at the girls. This is what I found. Hope is sitting on the floor behind the armoire door wearing a tiara. They were listening to music on Shurabe's radio and dancing.
Apparently, they had been in their room for atleast an hour playing dress-up together. It made this mommy's heart smile. That's what having a sister is supposed to be like!

Snowmageddon 2011

Two feet of snow and 2 full weeks of school canceled.
There were snow men to be built,
Lego cities to be created,
Snow to be shoveled,
and snow forts to be built.
There was laundry to be done,
baby doll stroller rides to be had (tell me she doesn't look like a giant in that stroller),
heart-shaped biscuits to be made and eaten (my 1st attempt at biscuits from scratch),
and cupcakes to be made, decorated and eaten.

The sun is shining, the snow is melting and this mommy is breathing a sigh of relief!
