Ice sculptures in the snow
I froze a bunch of different shaped ice cubes (muffin trays, mixing bowls, a bundt pan, etc) for the girls to make ice sculptures. It kept them occupied for quite a while one cold day!
Tempe did some sidewalk chalk after her ice sculpture--this says "Love is all you need". Cute!
I had tons of activities for Tempe and Helena when they were Juno's age--art activities, Play School lessons, cooking experiments, etc. I've really dropped the ball with Juno so I'm trying my best to do more with her! I saw this on No Time for Flashcards. It's just contact paper taped sticky side out to the window and cotton balls and q-tips to stick all over it. I drew some snowflakes before taping the paper up for Juno to try and copy--she mostly just liked cutting the q-tips in half, but some cotton balls did make it up there!
My sweet mom let me pick out these new chairs (they were only $70 from Target, pretty good for chairs!) to replace the hated chairs we had in our living room. I made new pillows for them and the couch and love how it all turned out--this really warrants a whole post on our living room because I finally, after 5 years, like how it looks!
Girls' weekend in San Diego
My mom, sister, and I spent the long weekend in San Diego for a little girls' getaway. It was so much fun and so relaxing! We ate tons of great food, got pedicures, and watched Zombieland. Yes, Zombieland.
Bounce house afternoon
We made a goal in 2012 to read the Book of Mormon as a family and promised our kids we would take them to a bounce house when we finished. Well... after two full years, we finally met our goal! I took the girls to a little bounce house last week to celebrate and they had a blast!
Valentine's Day cloud dough
We tried out this great new playdough recipe that I found on pinterest--cloud dough. One part hair conditioner (we used a floral smell for V day) to two parts cornstarch plus a little food coloring. It turns out super soft and super yummy smelling! I gave the girls lots of pink and red beads, pompoms, and pipe cleaners to make Valentine's Day treats.
Happy that baby girl should be in my arms in 10-12 weeks! Can't wait to see her!
