Catching Up

I didn't mean to go a full week without posting....

Here's how our week unfolded...

Jacob started back at swim class.

I went to my first Women's Bible Study at church.  
I didn't know a soul, but I completely felt welcomed.  And I hope to make some new friends.
I had to buy a new bible because mine is from 1986 - King James Version :)
In order for me to dive deep and learn, I needed a different translation.

Levi got his second haircut.  My hair dresser brought her little girl over for a play date and she cut both Levi and Kris' hair, then put color on mine.  Can't beat that!

I decided to do a Valentin'e Day craft.  I found this tutorial and thought it was super cute!
The inspiration:

She used 1" fabric squares, but I decided to use Valentine's Day tissue paper.  
I found 2 identical candle sticks at a local thrift store and spray painted them black (wish I had taken a before picture).  Just picture tacky brass.

I wrapped a square around the tip of a sharpened pencil, then dipped it in glue then stabbed the ball! :)
And did this a bazillion times!  :)

I randomly placed a few solid pink squares and ta da!
I kinda wished I had done a better job with the pink, oh well.  
One down, one more to go!

Last night was FNO (Friday Night Out) at Church, which basically means free child care :)
We dropped the boys off and went to dinner with our friends Melody & David.
Tonight Kris' mom is watching the boys and we are going to the Razorback Basketball game with Beth & John.  Two dates in a row!  Yahoo!  

p.s.  someone tell these 2 to start blogging ;)

Love the craft! I am so not talented in that area - at all. I am always jealous of those who are.

Love your Valentine tissue ball! So cute! Would be a neat center piece for a romantic supper for two (or four)!!

Go glad you are involved in a Bible study at your church. Bet you know several new people before it's over with!

Blessings for a great week! Your little boys are soooo cute!
