how fun are these?! i’m helping with a welcome shower for our new jr. high pastor’s wife on saturday. i thought it would be fun to have a little decorations on the food table, so last night kate and i made these. i found the idea and directions here. remember, no original ideas here, folks! these were pretty easy, just took awhile – about 3-3 1/2 hours start to finish.
and the kids have all had colds for the last few days. it was a good thing i was productive early on in the week, because we’ve been holed up in the house and aren’t headed out soon. sean came home a couple days ago to give me a little mental break from all the whining, and he actually got lily to lay down to watch a movie (something i’ve NEVER accomplished before). when i went to check up on them, i found sean and lily were out! yay! lily really needed that second nap.
i gave in. i gave silas his first food. i tried to hold off until he was 6 months old, but it seemed like i was torturing him. so i gave him some rice cereal. he was NOT into it. 2 bites. thats it, and most of it was spit out. so i tried a zwieback toast. he looks like he likes it in the pic, but as soon as i set the camera down he was done. so maybe i get to wait a bit longer?
so here’s some fun stuff we’ve been doing around here:
making beaded bracelets and necklaces
lily putting her finger in her poopy diaper – DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME KIDS!
prep for another shower – no sneak peek
making lots of messes
hope you’re day is not as snotty as mine!
