February has been busy – or maybe we’ve been too lame to take pictures.
A couple of weeks back, Rollie spent days going through a vintage kids’ cookbook, requesting each unappetizing object. We finally settled on a compromise – we make a cake from it instead of battered vegetables, and he and Jack handle the cake-making. I oversaw the job and showed them how to measure things properly, but otherwise, they did pretty much everything.
To the victor, the spoils.
I let them decorate it at their discretion, so they used every kind of sprinkle.
I spent the last two weeks edging, and edging, and edging.
A picture of my lovely new leather, because why not? Now if I can only find time to make something with it. (And no, that’s not real alligator- it’s cow print, but Horween cow print, and lovely stuff.)
Most of you have seen what I have made lately on instagram, but if you’re not on instagram, you can see pictures on my leatherworking blog.
Jack wasn’t feeling so great one day last week, so he and I enjoyed a lot of quality snuggling as the snow swirled around. It didn’t stick, but it made everything very cozy.
Valentine’s weekend was fun at church with a workday on Saturday and a Valentine’s lunch after church. I dispensed with the fancy dinner in the evening (thank you very much), and the boys had fun opening their Valentine’s packages. We started giving the boys a coin for their coin collection every year for Valentine’s, and this year they got a few Roman or middle eastern coins.
And, of course, more Star Wars micro machines, because why not?
Marty started this whole writing on windows thing… not sure how I feel about it, but it’s kinda’ fun.
Making kissy-faces at Darth Vader because it’s Valentine’s Day, and he can’t escape.
