Valentine Project

Today was craft day, in the Rhoads' household! The girls each made a card for Mike, a bouquet of paper hearts for me, and then we made door-hangers, too! Here are some pictures of our day!

We used the foam 5x7 sheets and made tissue-paper hearts. Then, used stickers to write the "I LOVE YOU" message. I sealed it with a kiss (a stamp), and finally attached the pipe-cleaner with hot glue. The best part of this project was that it took a long time for Abby to glue all the tissue paper to fill in the heart!

A nice day in February...

It was nice outside, and all of us had cabin fever! I took the girls outside and let them run. It was a little wet, and a little muddy, but since it was our first time playing in the yard in almost a month, no one cared! They got to run off some much needed energy and breathe in fresh air. It was really nice. I noticed that the sun was low in the sky, and ran inside to grab my camera. Surprisingly, the girls had a little patience with me, and let me snap a few pictures of them. I don't know what is going on with Livi's expression...maybe she's learning to "smile"...sigh, I already can't wait for that to pass! Abby's smiles are finally getting good again, and she's even learning different favorite poses when she sees me with my camera.
