I've had a little time to get crafty. Even if its while a child is asleep on my lap or I stay up a little to late, its still time well spent! Hope you enjoy the new things I've made.

Oh Olivia! You are so CUTE!

I made another hat for Miss Livie yesterday. I was making it for Gracie when I realized it was a bit small. Crocheting is so much fun! I cant wait to crochet something to use on a scrapbook page!

February Fun

February is a hard month. Its still cold and I think everyone would just like it to get warm already. None the less we found some great ways to have fun this month.

We went to Chuck E Cheese for Q's birthday. It was a ton of fun and not a whole lot of people there so the kids had free rain of all the games.

Auntie Tina came to visit us from Maine. We adore you Tina!!!! We wish you lived close to us. We had a great time with her in town for a weekend.

I started crocheting again. Its a great project to do when the kids are cuddling up with me or falling asleep on my lap. I made this hat yesterday. Ive also done some scrapbooking and will hopefully share that with you really soon.

Another layout- Proud To Have You Home

Journaling reads "They were all smiles when you came through that door. They both wanted to cuddle up with you all day."

A Big Deal.....Turning 4 at our house is a major right of passage. Its when Mommy lets you chew gum for the first time. ( Call me a mean Mom, but I don't want to deal with a 2 or 3 year old with gum....sounds messy) Its when you move from a "Baby" carseat to a "Big Boy" Booster. It's when you start 4 Year Old Kindergarten. It's when you can choose an activity to participate in (Gracie choose dance...not sure what Q's choice will be yet) So enjoy all your new found 4 year old fun little man. Happy Birthday!

What do you do on a Snow Day?

This is what we do....
put every flower clip that the girls have in Doug's hair. There are 12 flower clips in his hair!

After he shoveled for over an hour this is exactly what he had in mind to do today. Thanks for being such a good sport Honey!

Regional Dance Competition.

This past weekend Gracie attended her very first dance competition in St Louis. She LOVED every moment of it! She was able to take classes with well known choreographers in dance styles that she normally would not have the opportunity to take at her studio as well as performed on stage 4 times. I have to admit that I had a nice time as well. (Thanks Auntie K for the shout-out to Gracie on your blog, we hope you enjoy the pictures and when you come home we have a video of it to show you. )

This is "Dance fashion" Crazy colors, fun prints and a whole lot of cute. This is what you wear to class.

Mommy and Gracie right after make-up was done She loves making the "Victoria beckham face"

They all had a little friendship/good luck squeeze circle. It was cool.

She's a little nervous in this pic. She just really wanted to do her best.

The whole group in their tap costume.

Her face says it all! She just found out they got gold in both dances and will compete again tomorrow in the "best of show".

The whole group with their teacher Kelli showing off their the ultimate award "best of show" in the Mini category. They were all running around jumping and screaming. They were so excited.
