"Mom, why did you dress us this way?".........

Is the question that I am sure the kids will ask when they see pics of themselves in these but isn't it my job to cause those types of questions??? This is my first attempt at applique. I little bit more "rough around the edges" than I planned but hopefully we can pass it off as intentional!

S-N-0-W daysssss!

Snowman named Charlie (as is everything these days according to Caed) sans arms!
Millie's thinking, "Why in the world do you guys have me out here?"
Family photo documenting Caed's mad face! Also, check out our videos of snowball fights and sledding.

Love is in the air......

Collage placemats made from Caed's collection of Valentine's through the years. He always wants to keep them so I was excited to find a practical way to store them each year.
Crayon hearts made by melting pieces of his broken crayons in heart-shaped muffin tins. Caed is giving these to his preschool friends.
I gave Caed a little mailbox from the $ spot at Target and we have all been leaving love notes for each other everyday!
We cut out paper hearts and threaded them with some doilies to make a garland for the mantel.
