First stab at making this toy.

Certainly not perfect, but...

it's mathematically significant
and has jingle bells inside!

Making it was a little addictive.
Good thing I have another skein!

It was hooked (crocheted), and now I'm hooked.
Need to try the knitted version.

The how-to.

Mind & Body Bending :: Spelling Test

This is what Mary Kate might look like when she's taking a spelling test...

given by her little brother...

before having a living room slumber party.

A little twisted?

The thing of Texas kids' dreams :: snow

A dusting of snow gets everyone excited around here.

This light coating even closed all the schools for a day.

All this snow play can make a kid tired.

Shovels? Who has shovels?

We do, however, have angels.

And fun rides in the yard. And...

Wet gloves in the dryer.
A blaze in the fireplace.
Hot chocolate in our tummies.
Little school work done.
