Clearly, this was a before Christmas shot. I got the Nativity stickers from Oriental Trading.
These pictures are particularly exciting to me. I asked her to draw me a circle. And she did! Sorta... I'm more excited about the "she did" then the actual circle-like drawing she made. She rarely does what she's asked. LOL
Here she is playing with her new Magneatos. Fun, fun!!! Big Sis likes them too! Thanks for the recommendation, Carisa.
Here she is matching colored mittens that she can't destroy thanks to my new laminator. Yay! I would like to tell you where I got the mitten game but I can't remember.
Oh and be sure to notice that the game is on a tot tray. I picked those up when Carisa mentioned that OTC had free shipping on any amount. I snagged those and some stickers. Right now, I'm just putting activities on the trays to train her to keep her "work" contained. It's nice in theory.
And this was the one and only time that she actually would play the game. It was a resounding "No" every other time I brought it out.
She's decorating her snowman with pencils and binger markers. She worked on this all through out the week. I just left it on her little desk and she wandered over whenever she felt like it. The hardest part was getting her to wear the paint shirt.
We discovered tried this activity in a moment of desparation. She likes to empty all of the drawers in our school room while I work with Mackenzie. This particular day she had discovered the pony beads hidden away. I hadn't let her use them before because of the choking hazards. But we were desparate to get on with school so we sat her next to us with a small cup of pony beads and a pipe cleaner. She loved it! And I only had to get on her 3 times for putting them in her mouth.
And as a special surprise, God sent us something we never see here, to add to our winter theme. Snow! I think the last time we saw this much snow was 7 years ago when my oldest dd was the same age.
Oh my! I almost forgot. Kayleigh is now an athlete. She is "playing" basketball with other tot's through our local homeschool sports league. She loves it! For the first 15 minutes anyway. Then she wanders off for the remaining 15 minutes and reappears when they bring out snack. LOL
Aren't they adorable?
Be sure to check out the other tots over at Carisa's.
