January Artwok.

Our house was so beautifully decorated for winter this month:

There were a lot of worksheets this month.

But also some yummy hot chocolate.
And also a boy dressed for summer.
Brought to you by the letters 'W' and 'I'.

And sliding!

The Bug, doing her first real homework.Writing her name on a worksheet.

The finished product.

After doing several of these, she decide to make herself a worksheet to practice writing her last name.She also made a worksheet for Rory to practice with. (Sophia coming soon, I'm sure.)

Ad naseum.

Over and over and over again, since Auntie left...

She must have drawn this scene at least once a day. Think she's trying to tell us something?

(I like this particular one, because we're all holding hands, and she included our ages as well as our names. Lily is 7, Auntie is 8, Mommy is 10 and Rory is 4.)

Tellin' it like it is.

From the playroom tonight as I was getting dinner ready...

Lily - "Mommy, we need a different Rory!"

Me - "A different Rory?"

Lily - "Yes. A new one."

Me - "Is there something wrong with the one we've got?"

Lily - "Yeah. She's a wrecking ball."

Any song...

"Mommy, any song by Taylor Swift, I love."

Even Rory can sing along.

We listen to a LOT of her music these days.

Mommy's birthday.

Pancakes in bed. Snuggles. Shopping. And dinner at home together. My girls gave me the best birthday ever. (With maybe a little help from their Daddy).

Oh, and there were presents!With hand decorated wrapping paper.

And helpers eager to assist in unwrapping.
And to help model some of the gifts.
The girls got me some new yoga clothes and were very anxious to see if they worked.
Who doesn't like a little yoga in the kitchen?

And there was cake too!

And you know what happens when you give two little girls cake after dinner right?? Madness. With a side of screaming.

And some roaring too.

And no celebration would be complete without some funny faces.

Happy birthday, indeed!

Artists at Work.

This is what I always imagined having two kids would be like. (Don't blink or you'll miss it!)

Actually, they spent most of a morning this way, deep in concentration and painting contentedly.

This is what we ended up with... Lily's masterpieces.

And Rory's too.
