I think she even surprised herself.
If you are local and haven't tried A Taste of Philly they are amazing and you should. If you travel through and want to support local they are a fun little spot to hit.

It is such a family oriented game and has parts for everyone. I mean that is some true Pappa & Sprout bonding time.

We made a cute window decoration by cutting our construction paper hearts, with another heart cut out of the middle. And then we layered tissue paper with white glue on inside of the heart. It is super simple and very pretty. I foresee shamrocks, and easter eggs in the future!
I then made some valentine cards for the girls to hand out to the people they saw that day. Blatantly stole this idea from a few other mom bloggers, I can not take credit. It is so cute I think we will have to do this again for school next year!

She was also very thrilled with the fact I was trying to take her picture, as you can see.

Yum cake, or is it yum frosting. I went with a box mix and homemade cream cheese frosting. It really is all about the frosting, especially with my girls. And you can not go wrong with rainbow sprinkles, they make up for the cake being a box mix. Which by the way was not any easier than making a cake from scratch, at least in my opinion.

I can not bear to use the cheesy tag lines for this winter storm. It is crazy outside with so much ice. You walk with out leaving footprints, we are literally trapped in the house. It has been a nice change to have to stay home with out plans, with out tasks looming, and just have family time. We built legos, we did crafts, I worked on a quilt and Emma cut my scraps into bandages for her toys. Some days I feel like I am rushing for bedtime, but today was so perfect that it didn't even matter if it was just one more round of games.
I hope everyone is staying safe, and enjoying mother nature's forced time to rekindle and warm the house from the inside out.
First you will need to gather your supplies. Old crayons, and a sharp shredding object (here we have a grater in the picture but we found the pencil sharpener to work much better,) and you will need wax paper.
You will need to take all the wrappers off the crayons.
Then lay out a sheet of wax paper and start shredding.
Much better with the sharpener.
Layer with another piece of wax paper
Melt!! I used the polyester setting and that seemed just right. Also you WILL want to put a pressing cloth or towel over and under your project you don't want any leaky wax escaping.
Trace and cut
Connect. I stapled mine together but you could punch holes for lacing string, or you could sew them together. I opted for quick as we were near nap time. Hang and admire, I love the way the light catches the wax it is so pretty.
