For President’s Day, we went to the kids museum for some presidential festivities. The kids made construction paper presidents.
Caroline, as usual, only wanted to play in the sink.
There was also a physics demonstration from professors from the University of Utah.
Becca was very, very happy about getting picked to be a volunteer!
While we’ve been barely surviving the actual winter weather (after three years in North Carolina), we finally got some warmer weather. Despite all the snow on the ground, it was actually pretty nice out. Jen especially was happy that the south was having their snowpocalypse while all of all snow was melting!
In case anyone was wondering why Henry’s shoes are always wet. I actually bought a shoe dryer…goofy way to spend money, but Henry’s shoes don’t smell nearly as bad now.
Becca and Henry drawing pictures of the rainstorm.
Even more warm weather–enough that the snow is just about gone.
Making valentines for all sorts of people.
Making more valentines at Pottery Barn Kids (Becca was at school).
Our playgroup activity making more valentines days cards!
Becca (and Henry) made “houses” out of some boxes we had. First they were Halloween houses–you can still see spider hanging from Becca’s box–and they then morphed into valentines day boxes.
Becca’s kindergarten valentines day party.
All Caroline wanted to do during the party was play in the water in the sink.
Caroline also learned to multitask–watching Yo Gabba Gabba on the computer and playing a game on the iPad.
It’s hard ot make blog posts about without doing anything interesting, but here goes.
Caorline is pretty happy to hang out indoors and play (especially with electronics). Henry, on the other hard, gets pretty stir crazy.
Watching animated bible stories before church.
Caroline has this picnic set from Christmas that she really loves. She’s very particular about how it’s set up, but she’s always willing to share her (pretend) food as long as you don’t mess things up.
Becca dressed up like a penguin for their penguin party at school. Caroline is showing her belly because Henry was doing the exact some thing just moments earlier.
We had Becca’s playgroup over. I was a little nervous about trying to entertain a bunch of little girls in the small confines of the condo, but they were mostly happy with watching a Barbie movie.
We did some arts and crafts and playdough, and the little girls were all plenty entertained. Henry was disappointed that they were all leaving just as he got home from school (although I’m not sure he’d admit it).
We made some cookies with Adam when he was home. Lots of sugar cookie dough got eaten before it had a chance to become actual cookies.
Some friends came to visit the other day (formerly from North Carolina, now Utah). Becca and Henry were pretty excited. We made marshmallow igloos and ate a lot of marshmallows.
Then we went over to This is the Place monument. Not a lot going on there during January, but we did see some deer.
Caroline was attempting to tell us about the deer.
