I have found a new love... doing arts and crafts with the kids! I have really struggled with how to occupy my kids time so that they aren't just watching tv (even though the cartoons amaze me with how much the can teach these days). One day I discovered the Family Fun magazine at the library, and my world has changed! I know, I'm a little slow... duh, crafts with the kids is a great past/present time. But, if you know me, I have a hard time letting the kids get into messy stuff, so I guess for a long time I was just waiting for an appropriate age... when they could follow instructions and not get the supplies all over the house. Well, we have come of age! I am loving it! And it is so sweet to see how proud they are of their creations! Ah, I love being a mom! Plus, don't you love their "concentrating" faces! Gary's is the best cause he'll get really close with his eyes to the project, like he has to see every detail... or he'll stick out his tongue, all sorts of cuteness! These turkeys went in our window, and the kids love to point them out so no one misses out! Sweet!
