We began our day by digging out all of our loot. :)
We've never had Hobby Lobby stores here, (I always think of my favorite, Holly Hobbie, so you may hear me call it that from time to time), but yesterday we took a drive north into the next county to my sister's neighborhood - and there it was!
Imagine my excitement.
A brand new (to me) craft store! wheeeeeeee!
A couple of months ago I had the idea that the paper heart love notes we made last year about this time would possibly make lovely little Valentine toys for my babes.
So I tackled that one this morning.
They turned out very well!
'Course, Maddie had to get in on that Create!, and made her own adorable little creature.
At first it was intended for her friend Julie, and then she changed it to Daddy. :) I'm sure she'll make you another, Julie....
Yup, I love hers best of all.
Madeleine then made a My Little Ponies book
(her own idea, plan, and story)
while Mama got busy on weaving.
Love this, too!
Maddie wanted a turn....
What a creative day we've had.
I'm not sure what Trevelyn has been doing today - :) - though he has been here-- the sleepover didn't take last night.
Don't you love those late night calls? The sweet, sweet little voice asking, "Do you miss me, Mom?"
Something like computer play and Tag with his Daddy and tickles from Grammy and could be that's about it.
And now there is steam rising from the stovetop,
the sky darkens
something that smells delicious rises from the oven
and all is well and quiet here with the falling snow.
We'll probably be about a quiet movie and popcorn soon.
An' prob'ly, too, we'll see you tomorrow....
