Then, Cider and Opaque had a dance recital and as you can imagine, THEY STOLE THE SHOW!!! Other parents were complaining after the performance that my babies got too much attention and demanded that they not be allowed to take center stage in future performances. It must be SO hard to have disappointing children.
To top it all off, Aloe charmed us at home with a very moving rendition of her one-girl-show adaptation of Oedipus (my FAVORITE story). She was so compelling in every single part. If I weren't interested in keeping my babies out of the spotlight so they can just have a normal well-adjusted childhood, I'm sure she would be a HUGE star by age 4!!!
Casper had some spelling bee or sporting game or something going on too, but we didn't make it because of Aloe's home performance.
Anyway, but what I'm REALLY excited to tell you about today is . . . . . . . . . ARE YOU SITTING DOWN?!?!?!?!?!? . . . . . . I MADE ANOTHER SO WAY CUTE CRAFT!!!!!!!! AAAAAAHHHHH!!! You are just going to DIE when you see it!!! I got the idea while I was setting up for a neighborhood picnic (which NOBODY attended, ehem!!!) and I have made 75 of them for the kids' rooms!!! The girls just LOVE them.
THIS WEEK'S SO WAY CUTE CRAFT: DREAM CATCHERS!!!!!
In my opinion, you can NEVER have too many dream catchers. So below is a pic of my FAVORITE one I made. Alls I did was cut out the center of a paper plate, staple some rubber bands to it, and then decorate the center with household products. As you can see in the pic, I include fake sugar packets, Casper's tooth brush, an egg, and then adorned the top with some toilet paper. AND THAT'S SERIOUSLY IT!!! It turned out SO WAY CUTE and I can't WAIT to show people when they come over.
