Pretty in pink and ready for her very first ballet class!
Bear on the Train is a great book for little boys who like trains or bears! The text has a nice rhythm and the pictures are lovely. Happiest when read in the company of Papa Bear. :)
Arden decided last winter she wanted to make cardboard skis; I think she was inspired by the Olympics! We made bobsleds and other things, but somehow never got around to the skis. Well, she remembered again this winter. Her idea was to cut out cardboard, decorate them with markers, then put clear plastic garbage bags over them to make them slippery.
I helped her make them, and Daddy took her out to try them out!
A bit of winter aftermath. We've had more snow since, and more on the way this weekend! The kids are loving it, and I really don't mind either. Embrace the season!
Here is the full moon, though this picture doesn't capture its larger than life reality.
Happy winter to everyone!
p.s. If you could use a little bit of hope, some dear friends of mine are sharing their own "Stories of Hope" at my other blog, Red Letters. This series was partly inspired by a quote on the Like Mother, Like Daughter homepage - "One who has hope lives differently." (Pope Benedict XVI)
