It took me about 10 minutes to make these ones, super easy...I didn't video tape it this time because I wasn't sure if they would turn out, but if you like them I can certainly make some more!
I got all the supplies at Michael's for under $10, but you can buy all these things at Wal-mart and it'll probably be a bit cheaper. I had a lot of ribbon left over too... the clips I used were the smaller ones in a multi pack, so if you can find a pack of smaller clips it works better... or alligator clips would work great too.
Here's a video of our ultrasound this week.. so cute to see her moving in there (even though I feel it all the time, she's kicking my butt!)

This year they asked me to speak for a session about etiquette and manners. Where do you begin? from holding the door open to meaning the words you say... there is so much that I don't know where to start.
It's funny how things kind of happen in cycles and in themes in your life. I've become more and more aware of the kids around me. The kids we spend time with, the kids at the playground or park, the kids at the mall. I have to say... the majority of the time I am completely horrified. Kids have no manners, foul mouths and no discipline. It's scarey. Now that I have kids it affects me and it makes me think hard about what I want my kids to be around and how they are influenced.
We do a lot of stuff in the community so our kids are exposed to a lot, and I don't mind that.. I don't want them to be narrow minded snobs, but at the same time I want to protect them from a lot of things that no child ever needs to see or hear.
I feel like every day my husband and I talk on the issue of schooling for our kids. Frankly, it makes me nervous. *sigh. One year at a time, one day at a time I guess.
It's kind of like, you don't want your kid to be a bully..but you don't want them to get picked on. You don't want them to be TOO cool and do bad things, but you don't want them to be nerdy and awkward either. Part of me wishes I could live in an enchanted forest or on a farm in the middle of nowhere! hahaa!!
anyways, my brain is all a muddle which means I should probably take a nap while everyone else does.
have a good day!
