I am just not crafty in the least! However, I always see you little crafters crafting away with your children on your blogs, and my neighbors always seem to have some craft project or other going on with their children. So, a few days ago I decided it was time to suck it up and get crafty myself. This was the best my little brain could come up with, and while it may look a little ghetto, Pace and I did have a good time making our Easter garland. For those others of you who are also non-crafty, I will say that it was an incredible teaching tool. I have tried to work with Pace on counting, colors, shapes,…and she has been pretty disinterested. Then, when I started counting the number of cotton balls to put on our bunny ears, or asking her if she wanted me to cut a circle our square for her eggs, she seemed to be learning like crazy. It made me wish I’d started the crafting long ago. So, I’m posting this blog to say, even if its ugly, get crafting!
Jeremiah turned 30!!! on March 10th, and last weekend we went to Oak Mountain to celebrate. His parents and Tommy hauled up 7 horses and Ashley smoked ribs and Boston butts. We had a great time, and embarrassingly enough these cakes are the only things I took pictures of. They are also a LARGE part of the reason I have been on a rapid weight gain program 🙂 Mrs. Linda got them from Olexa’s and they were divine.
