I have been feeling rather crafty lately and found this project online. It is called specimen art and it is just fancy stickers, but I really like it and it was fun to shop for the stickers.
I thought it would be fun to have a page for every holiday, so here is valentines day
I know christmas has come and gone but these were 80% off so it was worth the whole 60 cents.
Here is a notebook cover I made for Alyssa, she has decided that blue and white are her favorite colors she tells me "when I was a baby I liked pink, but now I'm a big girl and like blue and white."
There are pencil slots on one side and then a sticker pocket on the other side.

When i was taking pictures of my projects Alyssa wanted me to take a picture of her coloring page.
I realized that I made the dress she was wearing also, it is just a t-shirt with a skirt sewn on, but she likes it because it sparkles.

Alyss's birthday

I got a sewing machine for christmas and I made aprons for the girls. They have velcro waist strap so I don't have to tie them a million times, which I thought was awsome.
alyssa has told everyone for months that she was getting a spongebob cake for her birthday. This was the best that I could do. I looked at the bakery at the grocery store but they cakes were just blue cakes with spongebob characters on top so I just bought the characters from the bakery and made my own. I think it turned out cute.
We had a family party at my grandma's house, which was a lot of fun, alyssa loved the attention.
Eventhough it is January and it is too cold to ride a bike, we bought one for her anyway. I was busy taking pictures so I asked my brother to bring in the bike for her, and now she tells everyone that her uncle Alex gave her a bike.
Here is Alyssa and her cousin Carter coloring together.
A birthday would not be complete without 5 spanks from grandpa.
Along with the birthday party at the grandparents house, we also did a sleepover with Alyssa's cousin Olivia, it was a lot of fun.
I let the girls stay in my bed so they could all sleep together and they stayed up until 2 in the morning just talking and laughing and playing.

What cute girls?

Christmas was a lot of fun, but we were sad that Caleb couldn't be there, so we did the best that we could with the situation and had a skype call with Caleb christmas morning (he had to wait up until midnight to get the time right). the girls could run over and show him their presents and he could watch them have a great time.
Zhu Zhu pets and there anything better?

My parents got the girls matching guitars so they can have a rock band.
Should I be concerned that this was one of megans favorite gifts?
