A New Favorite Dirty Look

This so perfectly captures my kiddos' personalities:

Big B is doing exactly what he should be, with a genuine smile on his face to make his mom happy.

E-Man is ready to bust out laughing and cracking jokes for comic relief.

Miss J is annoyed and ready to explode with rage because she is touching her brother; and wearing jeans she doesn't like; and had her hair brushed; and wearing the black bow instead of the orange one; and because she wants her treat for posing RIGHT NOW rather than AFTER the session.

DIY Valentines

Sunday, February 7th, 2010

I am so proud of my do-it-yourself Valentines this year for the munchkins.  They were simple and easy, copied from a sample I found online.  Bonus: I did not have to stand in the Valentine aisle at the store debating Kai Lan, Dora, or Strawberry Shortcake for hours!

Use an exacto knife to make tiny cuts above and below hand, then slide sucker or pencil in:Diy

I added some digital flair, and printed on pearlized postcards. You could easily print at home on cardstock, or print as a 4×6 photo.
