This morning at breakfast Emma and Spencer were competing to see who could finish their breakfast first. They were arguing about this when I decided instead off telling them to stop, I would redirect their thoughts. So being inspired by our dinner groups friday night, I began asking them questions. First I asked what is your favorite color, even though I knew the answer. Emma said pink & purple & Spencer said green. Then I asked them, "if you could be anyone in the world who would you want to be?" Emma said "Miss Moore." It was no surprise to me that she wanted to be like her beloved Kindergarten teacher. Spencer said he wanted to be a "surfer man". Go figure.

Then I asked them, "if you could go any where in the world where would you go?" Emma said the beach to swim in the ocean, then she changed her mind and said she wants to go to New York City and see the Dr. Oz show. She is really upset that you have to be 18 yrs old to be a part of the audience. Spencer said, "away from Earth in Space."

Then I asked them,"if you were about to die, what would be your last meal?" Spencer thought about it and said "vegetables!" Ha Ha I cracked up cause he hates vegetables. Maybe he thought I said, " what food would be your last if you ate it. LOL

Emma Reading

The Snow days of 2011

Spencer and Emma of the first day of Snow. Yes Spencer is wearing Emma's purple coat cause it is made for cold weather and his blue coat is wimpy. Oh well.
Making heart shaped potholders for my visiting teaching gals. (Pretty sure none of them read this blog, uh hope so that is.
Making valentine cards for the grandparents, not done yet.
The sewing table!
Love these zippers I got off of etsy. I have already used a ton and still have many more yummy colors to play with. YAY!

So we have been struggling to keep busy. Here are a few things we have done. Sewing, playing, cooking, etc. etc. My sweet husband felt bad that we have been stuck in the house since monday, so he brought us each one of our favorite things home from the grocery store yesterday! So thoughtful.


A few weeks ago my neighbor asked me to teach her and her daughter how to sew. So we made these cute little coin purses one saturday. They got to pick out the fabric. They had a blast and are now hooked.
I made this little stuffed animal one night at craft night for my neighbors son who turns 2 in feb. My friend Katy embroidered his name on the left leg. So cute!
I made this little key fob and matching coin purse for Emma's teacher for valentines day. I filled the little coin purse with chapstick & gum. I can't wait to give it to her,
This is Emma being crafty and creative!
