Last week we had some serious Valentining going on. The kids all made hearts from their handprints...
...and then they made borders and decorations to put around their handprint hearts.
It was a lot of fun and turned out really cute. But, of course, I don't have any pictures of the final products, and we have already sent them away to grandparents and aunts and uncles.
While all this was going on, there was more fun happening in the kitchen:
Both of the babies were basically following Elizabeth and me around being kind of fussy and wanting to be picked up, so Elizabeth devised a way to entertain and distract them while allowing them to remain on the floor. She took a long string and tied it to a potholder. Then she threw the potholder across the kitchen to where they were sitting and then reeled it back in. It was so cute to watch and they were very much entertained with this 'amazing' invention!
