making stuff

Winter is a great time to make stuff. Malcolm made himself a costume.

Jane made herself a cardboard house.

I made Malcolm a bunny cowl.

I started this hat not knowing who it was for. I was trying to use up random balls of yarn. Once I added the blue I knew it was for Jane!

Westie took over my office chair the other day. You can tell she didn't want me to make her leave!

Jane was excited when she sat on her lap.

winter walk

Jane and I had a nice time walking outside while Malcolm was at his friend's house last week.

Malcolm skated at the park. Jane slid because we hadn't gotten her new skates yet!

The kids made a network of paths to play a game outside.

Westie curled up with a good book.

Jane requested a cat hat and a polar bear cowl, so I happily obliged.

new year's eve

We had quite an eventful new year's eve. In the morning we met up with Jane's first and second grade teacher who was visiting from Florida!

Then we went to Boston to go out to eat and check out the new year festivities. Jane asked to stop and see the ducklings first.

We had lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe. The kids wanted to see what the Boston version was like after we went to the New York one in April.

One thing the kids always like in the city is the fact that pigeons and squirrels let people get close to them!

We walked all the way from Faneuil Hall to Copley Square (about a mile and a half) so the kids were tired!

It was fun to see the ice sculptures.

We went into the Boston Public Library to do some crafts.

After that we went into the Copley Mall to see a puppet show. After that we raced to the Prudential Center to see a magic show but it was so crowded we couldn't see what was going on. That's when we decided to go home. It was a fun day!
