These little Santas were the result of another project I am currently
working on. As I was cutting some sticks in our garage, I was reminded
of similar Santas we had in our home growing up, a few quick cuts later
and I was on my way to my own set.
This past weekend as Dave and Finley headed off for some holiday
shopping, Fin asked Dad where they were going? "Shopping of course to
buy Christmas presents," replied Dave. "But Daddy, you're not supposed

Cooking: Pasta and Bread

I love planning projects with my children, but even more, I love when
projects fall out of nowhere and change the shape of our entire day.
A Few Valentines
This weekend we made a few more Valentine's cards for some of our
friends. Each of the kids came up with their own style. For Finley's
cards, I found this idea over at Homemade Serenity.
Today we made some symmetrical hearts from an idea I found over at NurtureStore. The idea was very simple, and the kiddos LOVED it.
So many of our projects lately have been open ended, usually involving lots of glue, cutting, and many bits and pieces.
Somewhere floating around the blog world I had seen these nifty clothes pins, so a few days ago we decided to give them a go.
