Oh, oh, oh, let's go fly a kite...

...up to the highest height. Let's go fly a kite and send it soaring Up through the atmosphere Up where the air is clear Oh, let's go fly a kite! Play Me
This is the day we've been waiting for. Not as warm as we'd like it but sunny and windy. Perfect for flying the kite that's been in the package waiting and waiting for this day. This evening we headed out to a wide open space and set Mickey free.

Ella's turn:

Then Anders' turn:

These longer days equal an early riser toddler. I was so hoping to sleep in this morning. Didn't happen. This helped my morning though:While I was getting ready this morning I heard Anders in his room giggling and laughing hysterically. I snuck on over to see what he was up to and found him looking at a book:

I quickly got my camera and snapped this picture. I sure wish I had had my video camera. His laugh was priceless. He had this book we brought home from the library titled: Who's Hiding? by Satoru Onishi. I had never seen this book before but it's a rollicking good time for a three year old and apparently Anders find this page belly-laughable:

As you may not be able to see in the picture the question in the book is "Who's backwards?" and when we've read this together he thinks it's so funny that some of the animals are showing their backside.

Our morning consisted of a trip to Home Depot for the monthly kids workshop. Both Ella and Anders made this
flower pencil holder. Very cute and fun and the best part is that it's free. Then we did a few more runs: Michaels, Costco (love this store but did I need to buy the ten pound bag of M&M's? I'll share the cookie recipe using the M&M's that I plan to bake at a later date) lunch at Culver's, and the library. I was hoping to hit up some garage sales but I got sick of driving around and getting a 3 year old in and out of a car seat so we headed home. I guess the thrifting will have to wait another week. (Hubby will like that :)

As far as knitting goes not much has been on the needles lately. Well, something is on the needles but moving very s-l-o-w-l-y. It's probably only another inch along since I took that photo. yikes! I better get busy But I actually have something started with a crochet hook. I've been teaching myself with various books I've had home from the library and it hasn't been too bad but I think I still want to take a class. It seems that the instructors at my LYS always have many tricks that you don't read about in books. So far I still enjoy knitting more than crocheting.

Happy Weekend!

How cute! I love it when they dont know they are being watched, and you can see what they are doing. I try and peek at my daughter dancing away in her room singing to the music. She is really quite good too, although she will get mad if she catches me.
