My Cards

When we moved here I was pleasantly surprised that our ward had a card night. It works a little different than the one in Omaha. You come with all your cards made and then there is some time at the beginning to socialize and then you exchange cards and talk about how they were made, etc. Then there are treats and it is over in about 1.5-2 hours. Right now there are only 11 people in the group which is a really good size. I really enjoy it and look forward to hosting in Aug. Any suggestions on treats or door prizes? I forgot to mention they have a drawing for door prizes. I won a notepad this last time and I was so glad. I make lists for everything. If I don't write things down I don't remember them. Scroll down to see samples of other ladies' cards.

Card Night

Here are some of the other girl's cards from Birthday night and Baby night. Thought they were cute and someone could use them as ideas.

The babies are getting close to crawling finally! Or at least thinking about it. Jude can get on his knees up and is just barely learning to get the top half up. For quite awhile he just dug his head into the ground but a couple days ago Daren said he saw him with his head up. Lily has the bottom half up or the top half up but can't put them together yet. I am not in a rush. I am enjoying them still moving slowly. They roll around mostly still right now. I think all stages are fun and as much as I want them to stay babies it is fun to see them learn new stuff.

Thank you for your comments

I guess people are really reading my blog. Thanks for keeping me motivated to keep posting. I know it is past Valentine's Day but I was proud of my Martha Stewart effort in making 38 of these for Aspen's two classes.

1,2,3 How cute are we

I promise that really is Jude in the girl carseat with the girl blanket. It is just too easy to use whatever is handy. Hopefully I won't warp him and his favorite color will be pink. I promise I have never dressed him in Lily's clothes.

Slowly but surely...

A little at a time we are adding some welcoming touches. I got these lanterns for the front porch. Does anyone have any suggestions what I could put in them besides candles? I don't want to have to light them all the time. I am getting discouraged because no one is commenting on my blog and I have even been good about posting often. Is anyone out there?

Happy Valentine's Day!

I am always late at everything so I decided to be early for a change. Hope you all have a love filled day!

Seven Months

Our appointment for the doctor got pushed back but the babies were weighed at the end of Jan. and Jude weighs 14 lbs 2 oz and Lily weighs 14 lbs. 13 oz. Not really that much even though it looks like it should be a bigger difference. I think it is all in Lily's cheeks. I also couldn't get Jude to sit up but they are only 1/4 inch different in height and Jude is actually the taller one.

Teaching them young...

Sharing is a very important lesson. Do you think if we start teaching them now we can avoid sibling rivalry? Yeah right!
