Here are the Valentines we made for the girls’ classmates. The first one is PZ’s. She helped me cut out all the hearts and glue them on. We did 6 different knock knock jokes.
Quinby helped make hers too. She glued the eyes on and told me which valentine went to which classmate. Then we used my butterfly shaped paper cutter to cut a bunch of paper butterflies out and spent about 30 minutes putting little butterflies on our noses and then blowing them off. She thought this was hilarious. Truth be told, so did I. Ah…hanging out with a two year old can be so nice sometimes.
In other news, two nights ago I found this crochet pattern on etsy and had to buy it. I’ve been looking for the perfect kitty tutorial to use for PZ”s Jenny Linsky doll. This reminds me of the Bla Bla dolls which I’ve always loved but never felt like spending all the dough on.
Another crochet project I’m working on is this one. I’ve started it three times now, (I’ve never crocheted in a ring before, so I’m trying to figure that out.) and have had to undo it three times. Luckily my friend Jenn is letting me come over for a lesson tonight. I know once I get it I’m going to be like, duh, but as of right now I’m like, argh!
Its the second star on the right and straight through until morning…

Crocodiles team the murky waters beneath my 4 and 1/2 year old’s bunk bed, she bathes nightly in a pool of mermaids, the whole family transforms into pirates when we pull away from the curb, and Princess Tigerlily, Tink, and Wendy have all become regulars in our day to day conversations.
My imagination has been sprinkled with pixie dust and taken flight as well. The color scheme, the mustaches, the pajama and top hat combo – its all so lovely and wonderful. Childhood defined! I’m especially taken by those adorable Lost Boys in their woodland animal costumes. PZ is simply addicted to this Disney movie. We borrowed several different copies of the book from our local library and the book on cd is one of her favorites. Neverland never seemed so close!
