This morning my niece Lilly came over and brought along some pony beads! We had a necklace making session! They were busy for 1/2 an hour! It was loads of fun. The next time I want to keep them busy for a while I know I can pull out some beads and let them go to town!
I used to make lots of bracelets and necklaces back in my day. I have a big box of all sorts of beads at my parents house. I think I'll look around for it the next time I'm there.
Its so much fun having craft time with the kids. I wish I did it more often. They really like it and I do too.
The other day I was coloring with G. He and L picked out the same coloring books at the store and I was using L's and he was using his. I picked out a picture with a giraffe, so did he. Then I started coloring in all the spots brown. He asked for the brown crayon when I was done, and then proceeded to color his spots brown too. Then I decided to color the rest to the giraffe pink, and from that point on he colored everything the same color that I did. It was really cute. Here is a picture of both of our completed art!
I'm still working on L's sweater.... but its the same as C's so I won't boar you with pics you've already seen. Tonight is spinning night but I have no one to watch the older two kids and don't want to pay a sitter or anything... so looks like I have to wait one more month to go.
Next monday I start back at work... I'm sure it won't be too bad, except for the fact that I'll go in at 4am... C actually slept for 6 1/2 hours last night! I couldn't believe it when I woke up at 6:45 to her fussing, usually she's up around 4 or 5 ish. I hope this continues! The other two kids only let me sleep for a few hour at a time until I stopped nursing them. This is GREAT! Keep it up C!
She is always smiling when I get her in her car seat... thought I'd share with you all!
