Winter Crafts

These are some of the projects I've been working on recently.

This is the famous cake We made for Captain's final.

Harvey and I made these paper heart chains for Valentine's Day. He enjoyed handing me the paper strips and stapling the hearts together.

He calls them "trees." I have no idea why.

This is the thing I'm proudest of at the moment. Do you remember that big long list of things I wanted to finish over the summer? Well this was one of them. I knew it needed to wait till Cecilia was old enough to hold her head up. I did take some artistic liberties with the shape of Harvey's hair. If I had gone with what was really going in in the photo it would look like he had dinosaur spikes coming of the back of his dome. Anyways, I just printed out photos of the kids and traced the edges. Then cut them out of black cardstock and glued it to paper.

Also, I would love to get input as to what color to paint the frames. Captain likes them the way they are. I originally was thinking white, but now I think maybe a bright color like red or yellow would be better.

That's it for now. I hope everyone else is keeping busy this winter.

I like the black-and-white for the silhouettes

In Harvey;s defense, a heart is an upside down christmas tree.
