The second craft we tried was making cardboard sandals. We had some leftover cardboard boxes from some newly installed outdoor lights (thanks Gary) which we cut up to make the sandal soles. The straps were made from an empty cereal box and then embellished with some cutout flowers from the latest Martha Stewart magazine. Here are some pictures of our crafty sandals.

For one reason or another the girls have recently decided that they don't like to eat spaghetti (which happens to be one of Gary's favorite dinners). Kami claims that the sauce is too "spicy" and Rian is still just picky. I tried adding meatballs since they were into the "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" movie which worked for one round of spaghetti and meatball dinner. The last time I made it for dinner I promised I would give the girls their own "long" plain noodles after they ate their spaghetti/sauce/meatball dinner. Here is what happens when you give long plain noodles to my silly girls!

This wonderful weather has really been enjoyable! Rian, Drew and I sat in the grass this afternoon waiting for Kami to get off the bus. This was Drew's first time sitting in the grass and he was a little apprehensive about it refusing to touch it. He did however accept a single blade of grass from his big sis Rian which he, like most babies, shoved it in his mouth before I could grab it from him. After a short battle trying to pry his lips open I realized the little guy swallowed it - oh well! Just then Kami got off the bus and Rian greeted her shouting "Kami guess what? Drew just ate his first piece of grass!" A look of great concern spread across Kami's face as she asked "Mom will he get a grass stain in his stomach?" :)
