Apparently we are now living inside a grade 1 classroom!

We have been quite busy each day creating wonderful works of art. Possibly a few too many as my husband has declared we are now living inside a grade 1 classroom. However what is Christmas without a few beautiful works of art made by your own children?

I loved writing a diary for both of my children during their first year, I also made them a wonderful scrapbook of photos. Since my son turned 1 I needed a new avenue to express my creativity - Blogging combines my love of scrapbooking, kids activities, photography and writing.
