Tot School Days at Home

The girls have been busy creating master art work this week! They love to color and paint. I think they believe that crayons are for babies and prefer to use markers instead, haha. When they've finished working on their masterpiece they move onto coloring/painting their hands, arms, faces and clothes. I took out the whiteboard and put it on top of their table and they loved coloring on it with mommy. Anjali was especially excited when she realized that she could make things disappear by rubbing marks away with her finger.
One day I had to lock myself into the laundry room so that I could actually fold a load of laundry. The girls do love helping but the clothes never get folded. The prefer to grab a handful of clothes and run off as fast as they can and hide them. One of the new spots of Vaishali's that I recently discovered is in their oven of their little play kitchen where I found a couple of Jacob's missing shirts. Very clever that one! Anyway, while I was busy in the laundry room, Jacob was suppose to be playing with the girls. It got very, very quiet. When I came out to check why it was so quiet the girls were missing and the gate was down. Jacob of course was busy watching tv. We found the girls in my office and Vaishali had found some of the Indian sweets opened the box and was huddled down in the corner here behind the chair stuffing them in her mouth. So, so cute and Anjali was playing the piano and reminded me a lot of the Charlie Brown cartoon. Jacob ran to get the camera and took the above picture.
Look closely, closer, no closer. We got snow in Atlanta! Well okay, maybe just flurries and nothing stuck to the ground, but I was excited and it was pretty.
See, Jacob even ran outside to taste the snow. Still adorable even at the ripe old age of 12, haha.
Seemed like the perfect week for Jacob to read the short story Snowflake Bentley.

I found these cute unfinished wood frames at Michaels craft store and let the girls paint them with do a dot markers. I think the pink and red with the heart are cute for the upcoming Valentines Day. I put in pictures of them eating cake from their 2nd birthday.
And last, mommies new toy. I love this laminator, now I officially feel like a teacher. I've been busy working on all kinds of new school projects to come later.
