Life raising a flock of kiddos can sometimes be tiring, stressful, happy, sad, fun, tearful, and full of laughter. I would be kidding you if I said it was easy. A friend of mine knows this routine only too well. I can always count on her guidance during moments in my life when I find myself wondering how on earth I am going to get it all together. I got mail from her today! I thought I would share a big smile with you all! Thanks Autumn!

We love to make tons and tons of valentines for all our friends in town. Here are a few that we made. Anthony pressed red bud leaves in the fall and glued vintage valentine clip art(thank you cime) to them and laminated them. Vincent painted clothespins and wooden hearts. Lexi made tons of these cute little owls(thank you nay). I made these clothespin dolls for a few of my friends. Carmen made dozens of yarn dolls, and the twinnies made clay heart ornaments(thank you sharon, bonne and ronna). I need to find pics of those last 2.

Father Daughter Dance

Friday night was the night my girls look forward to ever year. The father Daughter Dance. It is put on by Girl Scouts. Lexi of course would not be caught dead in a dress, so this is the best we could do. And she was fun and comfy, all that matters. Poor John was sick on Friday so he is looking worse for wear. Carmen as usual is happy to be wearing a dress and flowers...Lexi requested no flowers this year. So here they are on their way out the door.

We made a Russian Doll

The twins and I went to a party for one of their friend's today. The girl was turning 4, so we thought she might love this little Babushka. The orange ribbon flower was made by Sunshine or one of her daughters. I just love those flowers. I have been unable to find one of those little flower making wheel thingers, but if I find one, I will certainly be busy making those ribbon flowers.

presents we made for birthday girl

We made these to give at the party today. Some turned out cute. We also gave 15 decorated clothespins. The balloon on the apron is a pocket.

Anthony of the woodland elves

The last of the costumes for today's party! He needs a bow and arrow! I will have to figure that out.
