I had all kinds of grand plans for posting this week. Well, maybe they weren’t “grand” plans, but I did plan on being creative.
Instead, I have been creative in different ways while spending some quality time with the family. We have been playing lots of board games, puzzles (anything to keep them from staring at a Wii, DS or TV screen!) and yesterday we put together the gingerbread train my son received for Christmas.
Let me tell you,
the icing always looks so much neater on the box!
We were laughing so hard when we made it because it was so sticky and messy and it kept falling over. My favorite quote of the day, “Mom, you’re not very good at this!”
Anyway, I have a few minutes while they build another Lego kit. I thought I would follow along with some other blogs and post some of my favorite projects of 2011.
Are you on the edge of your seat?
Here we go…..
