I started by cutting the hand towel in half. The fat way so you have 2, almost, squares. (I thought I took a picture of this step but it isn't showing up.) Then take the washcloth and cut it in half corner to corner like this

In 2014 I made these Valentine bags for my family. I put them up on February 1st and all month we are suppose to write a note to tell each person one thing we love, appreciate, or an act of service given to show love for one another. This helps strengthen our love for one another, and reminds us to show love for one another. I some times put little treats in them too! I have a bowl filled with paper hearts for them to write on. Let the love fest begin.

This year we started a new tradition. At the end of each semester my kids get a day off school for grading. So I told my kids to celebrate I'd cook breakfast and they could invite any friends they wanted over. So today I served 10 kids crepes! Afterwards they stayed for some ping pong, and board games. Good ending to finals.

Our dog Dotty went to the groomer today. EVERY time she gets a hair cut someone asks if we got a new dog. So no we did not get a new dog but she looks new. The funny part about her going to the groomer is how she acts about it. If she hears me say ANYTHING about the groomer before it's time to get in the car she won't come to me. Usually she loves to go anywhere. Today she heard me say on the phone that I was taking her to the groomer and when I got my keys she just laid there I called her again and she rolled over to show me her tummy. I had to carry her out. Silly dog!

#1 Event worth Posting about was in December of 2014 Hayden was baptized. It was a very special day and I can't actually find any pictures of it right now... (this is WHY I need to do this so things don't get lost!) After her baptism we went and cut down our Christmas tree and went to the carousel to see Santa with all our family.
#2 Everyone had birthdays, Ethan got his divers permit, I've gone to girls camp, was released from Young Women's (after almost 6 years of serving with these amazing girls). Larry was put into the young men's presidency and now is the Young Men's president. Ruth started kindergarten which is ALL DAY! Funny thing is after 3 days of that at dinner she asked, "is tomorrow a school day?" I said yes everyday is school except weekends now. She said, "this is really cutting into my playtime." Just this week she has turned a corner and hopefully it will stay that way but she is enjoying school now and not saying she hates school. So that is exciting!
