L was a very easy letter for our family. If anything, we quickly discovered that we were going to have to limit our "L" photos a bit for Pk's book for school otherwise we wouldn't be able to fit them all. It was a fun letter.
Of course, our outing had to be to the library. I have raved about our library here before but I will say it again, our town has a wonderful library with marvelous staff. It isn't huge but for a library of its size, it has a surprisingly good collection and we have enjoyed the children's programming since Pk was about 4 months old. At this stage, we try to get to the Wednesday evening bedtime stories when the littles aren't seeming too tired, mommy goes to the twice-monthly knitting club (and hey, we have now become a guild - not sure what that means other than that I get a card and discounts at several knitting stores!) and Pk goes to the once-a-month "Crafty Kids" on Saturday and the once-a-month "Groove and Play." We've met many of our closest friends in town (any friend of ours has to be a friend of books LOL) at library activities, too.
Then, we had lights. Unfortunately, in a rash of organization for the new year, we packed away all of our Christmas decorations in rubbermaid tubs. It was a nice idea but I couldn't face going through the stack to find the lights so we cheated and pulled out an old photo.
L is for lollipop and this lollipop is one that Pk has been eying for a very long time at the England store. We have been strong and resisted but, in the name of our alphabet project, we relented and were immediately told that she needed two... Our first reaction was a resounding no until she informed us that her best friend needed one too. When we dropped it off, I am not so sure her friend's mother was soon keen, LOL.
this ad from 1981, it renewed my interested in having one of my children enjoy Lego. I must also admit, I have also seen many, many wonderful Lego birthday ideas on Pinterest and I am seriously hoping to have someone who would like a Lego party one of these days.
this recipe but I should never have doubted. When will one ever go wrong with onions and butter??? Yum! Even the kids couldn't get enough.
We have "m"agical plans for M (ha!) bit I'm struggling a bit on something great for N. I'd love suggestions (and we'd thought about Niagara Falls but we just don't have the time for the drive).
