We went to the Spanish Town Mardi Gras parade today & everyone has lots of fun! We bought a parking spot in our church lot so we were really close to the parade & we got there early so we had a great spot in the very front. Owen, George, & Greg really got into catching beads & I held Graham who, of course, slept! He woke up towards the end but I was amazed by how much of the parade (& the noise) he slept through! One of the highlights for the boys was me spraying their hair green with temporary dye. I even sprayed Graham's hair! Happy Mardi Gras, everyone!!!
The twins' classes hosted Famous Americans Day on Feb. 20, 2009. They each chose a famous American to dress up as & had to give a speech about that person. George chose Lance Armstrong & Owen chose Barack Obama. They did so great with their speeches & I was so proud of them!
George & his friend, Riley, a.k.a "Sitting Bull":
"The Champion" & "The Chief"

I'm room mom in George's class this year, so I came up with a fun Valentine's Day craft to do with his class. We are making these adorable Valentine card holders. For each child I spray painted a paint stirrer then hot glued a loop of ribbon to the back & 14 clothes pins (one for each child in the class) to the front. The kids will paint the clothes pins & decorate the holders with foam decorations & jewels that I picked up at Hobby Lobby. I can't wait to make them with the kids- they are gonna be so cute! This is a picture of the demo I made. I'm going to give it to George's teacher to put her cards from the kids on!
Graham tried out his walker for the 1st time tonight & he seemed to really enjoy it. He played in it for a good 10 minutes, which is a long time for him! Of course, in those 10 minutes I took a million pictures, haha! Here he is being adorable in his little red sports car!
