Real Life

Real life has been kinda busy lately, which has left little time for blogging.
I had great plans for fun Valentine's activities and crafting with the girls, but life has definitely gotten in the way. Stomach bugs, teething issues, appointments, school, have all kept us hopping.
We did manage to make these cute foam and tissue paper hearts last week. If you're looking for an easy project to do with your sugarplums, this is great. {Though if they are real little, they may need a lot of help}.
You'll need some craft foam {or construction paper}, tissue paper {cut into small squares}, a pencil {for shaping the tissue paper}, glue, a hole punch, and ribbon.

Cut the foam or construction paper into the shape of a heart. Slather with glue ;) Wrap each piece of tissue paper around the end of a pencil and place close together on the heart until it is covered. Punch two holes for ribbon, and hang.

Kam has been pretty happy to be using utensils at meals. She keeps a spoon in one hand while using the other hand to feed herself, ha! It is the cutest. And messiest.

I keep her in her jammies until after breakfast. Otherwise we'd be changing clothes about 10 times per day.

This is where we wind up after meals. It's a must after smearing apple sauce and oatmeal throughout our hair.

We've been busy with school. I'm so proud of Sierra. She's mastered carrying and borrowing, and we've just started on multiplication. And she doesn't think she's good at math!

Today we made a trip to Target to birthday shop for my Mother-in-law. Is it just me or does Makenna look so grown up in this picture???

All my girls are growing so fast! Kenners will be 5 in just a couple of weeks. Sigh.

Sierra helped me pick out birthday cards. Choices, choices.

And she found a pot holder for our aunt. {She just sent the girls Valentine's packages, and Sierra wants to send something to her in return}. Sierra is one of the most giving people I know. Usually when we're at Target {or Joann's or anywhere else that has $1 bins} the girls get to choose one or two things. Sierra always chooses a gift for someone else. Always.


And Kenners chose this must-have. A neck pillow.

It's been busy, I tell ya. What have y'all been up to?

1. How sweet is it that she gets presents! My girls have lovely intentions like that once in a while, but then they decide they need 2: one for themselves and one for the other person.

2. Ha! A neck pillow. I love it.

Liz...my heart is full right now reading your post. You are the most amazing mother and I'm so blessed to call you my friend.

Your children are beautiful! And WOW that Sierra is excelling at math! I think you need to do a post about all of your homeschooling secrets....because I need some help.

Love you!

Kameryn's looks are changing so much. She's starting to look like a little girl and not the baby. :( Actually, she's looking a lot like Makenna.

Sierra has such a sweet heart but I cracked up at the neck pillow. A definite "must have". Hahaha

I love her little heart shirt! I am going to have to do that project with the girls at home.
