- Finalized our two older girl's adoptions
- Vacation in the Tri-Cities and the WA/OR Coasts
- Back to school for all 4 girls
However this season is my favorite one! I LOVE Autumn and all of the fun and excitement it brings. Back to school, Halloween, two Thanksgivings (CAN & US), my birthday, etc... Seriously this is my FAVORITE time of year.
BTW Have you discovered Pinterest yet? It is like every blogstalkers
Today I made these for my big girls: (camera phone pics - sorry!)
I got the idea from here. I saw it on Pinterest and thought it would be a GREAT idea to build a better relationship with my two older ones. Because they're adopted they still have "mom issues" and what better way to bond and attach to me, than to become pen pals! I LOVED the idea and I got right onto making them.
I just cut out some pretty paper and made a title and their name using Microsoft Publisher; a little Mod Podge to glue and seal it all up and voila! I put a letter inside to start. It says:
Would you like to be my pen pal? Instead of mailing letters to each other, we can keep them here in this notebook. I think it would be a lot of fun!
I will write to you and then leave the notebook on your bed. Then, when you want to write me back you can begin writing on the next page and leave the notebook on my office desk when you are done.
You can write about anything! It can be funny or serious. About life, friends, boys, church, whatever! Just write about anythnig that is on your mind!
I am so excited and I hope that you are excited too!
P.S. Write back soon!
On the back I also put a quote that I liked, that I also found on Pinterest (seriously LOVE that site!)
