What Happened This Week!

Well, we had a great Valentine's Day weekend! The kids had a blast at their school parties. They came home and produced one of my favorite traditions. The Valentine placemat. We take a sheet of clear contact paper, they arrange all of their Valentines on it and then we cover it with another sheet of contact paper. Presto! A cute placemat and there are no loose cards floating all over the house to make me crazy!

There was a lot of snow this week so we had lots of fun outside again. Have to say we are starting to wish for Spring but the snow fun is still not getting old. This storm finally produced the perfect kind of snow for snowmen. Especially ones that like to wear Dad's hat.

Good for snow angels, or snow naps-not sure which. Oh, Brittany says she was catching snow in her mouth here.

Joshua discovered the joy of our little red shovel. He loved helping Dad and Grandpa. Now if we could just convince him to share.

It was a good week for trains for him too. Built them all around himself!

Next week we might have moving pictures! Assuming we have a functioning computer in all the chaos!

Love the placemats! My Grandparents used to cut their Christmas cards into circles and piece them together to make placemats (kind of along the same lines.) Thanks for reminding me of that memory. Great idea for school valentines :)
