During December and January I finally worked on some of the 4 1/2″ blocks for my Dear Jane quilt. I finished 11 blocks and have many more started. Now I just have to find the time to finish some more!
Reading Together February 24, 2012
I didn’t realize until a few years ago that all parents don’t spend time reading to their children. This kind of shocked me since reading to my kids is something we do everyday, several times a day that adds up to a good chunk of our time spent together. Both the boys love looking at books on their own. I am excited to see their interest in books develop. Reading is such an important skill and to enjoy reading is a blessing.
Valentine’s Day February 17, 2012
We didn’t really do much for Valentine’s Day this year. Dean and I decided to buy each other a spice cabinet- very romantic, huh? Calvin and I did make the traditional heart shaped cake. I remember making this cake with my mom growing up.
