february twenty-one

aah. two steps forward, one step back!
such is the life with not-100-percent-babies.

we played Apples to Apples Junior - still not sure if that was a good idea or not...

there were attempts at the usual bit of computer play - but it seems that mostly it was just turned on, and then within two minutes or so it was abandoned (by both) for the comfort of the couch and television. poor babies.

while they rested i got right on a project i've been thinking of.... mosaic art with eggshells.
our spring holiday - we celebrate Ostara on the twentieth of March- is coming up soon! lots of early springtime pretties to make between now and then.

Maddie's

and Mama's...




and Maddie and I brain-stormed about what we can put into an art box for a give-away at olm (too.). (we're pretty excited about our choices.)

there's been lots of snuggle and love and hide-and-seek and one-on-one time with Daddy...

and doses of mama's medicine
pretend play
coughing
dreams of getting better
and plans for when we (they) are better.

all in all, we're not too bad,
because we know that any minute now,
life will, again, be so, so good.

hopefully we'll see you tomorrow.

  2. So sorry to hear about the sickness in your house. You'll be in our prayers.

    We entered the science fair and plan to add a few more before it closes. But....this is realllly embarrassing. I don't know how to add the logo. Can you advise me?
    Thanks and love you.

  4. February blues - lots of snuggling and cuddling is essential. Hope they beat the bug soon.
    My little Squirt is still under the weather too, but he saves his worst for nighttime :(
