So excited!

We're having Amelia's birthday party in a few weeks, and the Grandmas are coming! ( My mom, and my grandma, AKA Grandma Dancing.) Even better, one of her cousins is coming too. Amelia is so excited, and I'm guessing my niece is going to be pretty excited too when she finds out. I think this is will be some much needed happy for Dorothy. Woohoo. :-)

Tickets are really cheap, so since the Grandmas were already coming, I got the idea today that Dorothy should come too and we got her a ticket.

The last time she came to visit she was only a few years old because it was Amelia's first birthday. Now I just have to convince the Grandma's that they want the spend the money to go to disneyland one of the days while they are here. (Amelia and I have passes.) Wish me luck!!

Crafts and art projects

I'm going to try and be a bit more organized with the projects I do with the kids, and I thought I might start sharing them here for anyone else out there who is looking for activities to do with their children. I have a pretty well stocked craft closet, so I'm going to try and see how many of these we can do with stuff with already have. We'll see how it goes.

The first few I have read for January are

New Years Clock

Snow Dough Snowman

Snowman Card (my kids love to make cards to send to people...)

Hand and Foot Print Penguin

Glitter snowflakes

We're also going to check out some books from the library about snow, winter, penguins and the new year.
