Crayons and Babies

This past week, the kids made some new crayons with all the old ones. We took many old crayons, took the paper off, and put them in a mini muffin tin.... then the "magic" happened and they turned into new rainbow crayons. The highlight of the activity was watching them disappear in the oven. I've never seen them sit and watch something for so long... needless to say, it was a good 30 minutes!

Anika is guarding her new possessions. And yes, purple nails-- Chris did all the kids nails while I was out. I think he found a new calling with his little girls! :)

The Babies--
Anika spent a good couple hours playing with her babies last week. She would change their diapers, give them medicine, feed them and take them "out." However, she needed help when it came to taking them out because she wanted to stuff them all into the backpack Marie made her. These poor babies were shoved in the bag, but whatever, Anika was happy as could be. Below are the pics from her day with the babies----

Stop taking my picture! UGHH!

They are almost heavier than me!
