That last week of January, wow, where did it go??? Crazy. I was happy to get my seven year old's baby book started this past week. I have details in my previous post. I got the Becky Higgins Baby kit to do it and love it! I got 8 months of pictures in about 2 hours--still have journaling and fillers to put in, but so nice to have those pictures in an album!! Besides that it was a week of losing teeth at our house, making treats, celebrating our state, and being grateful for our blessings and the family we have. Here is a look at our week. . .
Sunday: I seriously think we have lost more teeth in this family during the last month than any other time in our family's history. Miss E lost 5 teeth this month, and Mr J lost his first tooth. Miss E had her latest tooth in her tooth box her Grandpa made for her ready for the tooth fairy tonight.
Monday: We made a treat tonight of marshmallow popcorn that didn't use microwave popcorn. Mr J was fascinated with the 'real' popcorn popper we pulled out to make this recipe. It doesn't see the light of day often, but we are glad we have it.
Tuesday: Happy Kansas Day! We celebrate our state's birthday every year by making a sunflower cake. Yum! Miss E and Mr J decorated it this year.
Wednesday: Miss O got the neatest package in the mail today from our amazing family. They sent her this beautiful picture of Christ for her room. She was so excited!!! Love it! So grateful for caring and thoughtful family! Thank you!
Thursday: Wanted to get a picture of some of Mr J's recent artwork. He did these to decorate for Kansas Day.
Friday: I worked on Mr J's baby album today. For years he has been asking me when I am going to get his baby book done. Being the last of 4 kids, his gets pushed back and back and back. Finally I got it all together today and had 8 months worth of pictures in his book when he got home from school. He was super excited and loved looking at it!
Saturday: Went up to the city today with my 2 older girls and some friends to do service in our church's temple there. It was a beautiful time.
Thanks for visiting and have a great week!
