Valentine's Day Sibling Love

Happy Valentine's Day from our little lovers!

Collage made from picasa 3 and edited online using google + creative kit.  They have lots of stickers and cute fonts to pic from.  :-)

Big Sis had so much fun with this.  I gave her some red lipstick and let her go crazy with the kisses.  Little Sis had fun too (for the most part) ;-)

Homemade Playdoh Recipe

Here's my favorite homemade playdoh recipe.  Turn this sloppy looking mess into a fun ball of playdoh.  My daughter's preschool class has a parent volunteer to bring in a batch at the beginning of each month.  It would be nice to get in the habit of making this once a month at home and tossing out all the old dried up crumbly mess that the store bought playdoh always becomes.  

Serving Size:  A BIG blob (about the size of 2 large grapefruits)

4 cups flour
4 cups water
1 cup salt
8 tsp cream of tartar (found in baking aisle)
4 tbls vegetable oil
food coloring

Combine all ingredients in large pot and cook over medium hit stirring constantly until dough forms.  It starts out really soupy so don't be scared.  Keep stirring and in about 10-15 minutes it will be a playdoh consistency.  Take it off of the heat and dump it on a silpat or waxed paper.  Let it cool and then knead it until it is soft.

Wedding Dress turned Baptism Gown

This was one of the sweetest cutest ideas I've seen in a long time. My friend Sarah turned her wedding dress into Baptism gowns for her adorable twin girls, Sadie and Abigail. Is that not the best idea ever?!?!  And to make it even sweeter, Sarah's mom made the dresses!  I just love love love this!!!  What a great idea!
