Fireplace anyone?

We decided
since it was so cold outside today to make a fire place for the dress up room. The kids worked hard on it. They tore red, yellow and orange crepe paper to make the fire. When we were finished
Whitlee wanted to know what we were going to make the logs out of. The kids brainstormed and came up with the newspaper that they had just seen Mr. Randy bring in. They rolled the papers and painted them brown. They should be ready tomorrow to add to our fire place.

Today Jessica and Clara brought us in
salt dough alphabet pieces! Aren't the
beautiful? Thanks girls.. I love them! Whitlee was quick to play with them and say " Look Ms Debbie
Quick trip!" Look at her letters. Most of her family lives in Oklahoma where they have QT or Quick trip gas stations!

We tried salad
spinner art today!

Rosanna was a little apprehensive after being gone so long for Christmas vacation, but look at that smile minutes later!


  1. Love the letters!! They look like they would feel nice in the kids hands. I think we will have to make a few of those. Great to see you guys back in full swing!! The Fireplace is looking very cozy :)

  2. I totally forgot part of our day. We read the book " Polar Bear Polar Bear, what do you hear?" This book goes through many different animals and the kids were trying to make their noises. Some of them, like a flamingo, we didnt know the sound it makes. We got the lap top and looked up and listened to some of the animal sounds. It was interesting and the kids loved it.

  3. Love the letters, absolutley love the snowmen, they are just precious!

    Looks like you and your kids are learning and having fun doing it!
