1 - This little guy is just so happy and giggly, in large part thanks to his big brother and sister playing with him, tickling him, singing to him, and doing all manner of craziness to get smiles and laughs out of him.
2 - Lydia went to preschool this morning. When I made the picture collage, it cut off Miss Tammy's head! Lydia has a good time there with her teacher and friends.
3 - It's a rain boot kind of day.
4 - Seth can't leave for school without a big goodbye hug from his little sister. I'm glad they like to do that, and I'll love it for as long as I can. Having a big brother myself, I know this kind of thing won't last as they get older. Although now, I wish I lived close enough to go give him a big hug right now!
5 - Bye, school bus! See you in about 4 hours!
6 - My little sweetie likes to hold my hand on the way back home from the bus stop.
7 - Afternoon nap time. Peter has taken to sucking his thumb, hence his sleeping 12 hours at night! I couldn't get a picture of it because he loves to sleep with his face up next to the crib bumper, and I wasn't about to move a sleeping baby just to get a snapshot! Anyway, who doesn't love a good baby bum photo??
8 - This is a quilt block I made, and it's ready to send on to the next person in a cross-country quilt round robin. I'll get it back in October, and I'll be surprised with what the other quilters have added to it!
9 - I don't make sugar cookies that often, but Valentines Day is one time that I do. And I have plenty of little helping hands to make them with me.
10 - Homework time. Lydia is getting really good at cutting and pasting, and Seth is working on writing sentences using sight words. He also finished his first chapter book all by himself!
11 - Leftover cake from last night. This is soo good and really easy. Just mix 1 chocolate cake mix, 1 cup plain non-fat greek yogurt, and 1 cup water. Mix it all together and pour it into whatever pan you want, and bake it according to the box instruction. Just a little sprinkle of powdered sugar, and you have a sweet treat that you won't feel too bad about indulging in.
12 - Sorry, but I just couldn't bring myself to watch the State of the Union address. I'm confident Mitt Romney would have been able to restore a better economy and a more positive direction for our country. Alas, we move on, but for now I'm still in political "mourning," so I decided to relax and read an inspiring article written by our would-be POTUS in this month's BYU Magazine.
