I used my Cricut Cake!

Lilly had a Valentines Party at school with her classmates that I helped with, so I was excited to use my Cricut Cake!! Lilly and I made the dough, the icing, and she cut the cookies out and while my mom and I figured the Cricut cake out Lilly Iced and decorated the cookies! It was super easy to use and layer the fondant cutouts. I think my hearts and cupids turned out cute! Lilly was really excited to share her cookies she made at her party! I was thinking about the idea of selling some of my fondant cutouts, what do you think?!

Lilly Knitting

Lilly told me she wanted to knit so I thought, Great! We went to Michael's and bought her, her own knitting supplies! I got her circle looms, the set that I got has four different sizes. She picked out her yarn, and I saw the bag I wanted to keep for myself and knew she would love it to hold all her knitting supplies!! She has been doing great with it and its so cute to watch her quietly knitting away! I have even been showing her how to knit with needles which that level of hand motor control and is hard for her at her age but she still loves to try! The circle loom is great because she can do it by herself! She started off on the orange loom because she wanted to make a hat for me but it was taking forever to get one loop on so finally half way threw the day I was able to talk her into going down a size.

Bits + Pieces: Our Snow Day

We have had one day of snow. That's it. One. Minus the tiny snow fall that killed all my lettuce but that conversation is for another day! It makes me so Mad! I love snow!!  But we brought out some colored water in water spray bottles and painted the snow! There was a good game of chase, trading colors and the chase continued, and snow angles, had a snow ball fight! It was a good day of playing in the snow!
