Ayla volunteered and supported her friends who were hosting a Family Christmas Craft Night at a local elementary school. She said the kids were very hyper and crazy. I was proud of her for giving up her Friday evening, following a very long day of school and the staff vs. students volleyball match. I made the mistake of casually asking Evren, hey buddy, do you want to go pick up a craft at Michael’s? Skip ahead to two hours later when I’m still held hostage in an arts and crafts store with a 9-year old… he was being so sweet it was hard to be the mean mom and force him to leave. We did pick up a couple of crafts but by the time I got both kids home it was straight to bed for everyone. The kids finished their crafts together, in the morning.

Our virtual craft project (to fit in on a busy homework night) was to collect our favorite Christmas images so we could enjoy them all month. I have a digital photo frame in the kitchen that I use to display some of my favorite art (when I remember to turn it on) and I thought it would be fun to change it up for the holidays! We aren’t quite done but it will look something like this…
Ayla had a weekend of sleepovers and trips to the movies so I decided to treat Evren to a different kind of museum…
All the photos and some more detailed descriptions are posted to flickr.
Ayla and I made Valentine’s Day Bookmarks for all of our favorite people! Easy, cheap and fun.

Ayla was on a camping weekend having tons of fun and Evren and I weren’t happy just sitting at home… so we visited one of our favorite places in the city. Then he convinced me to go to the Art Museum across the street also. I had to stop him when he just assumed we were going to the Asian Museum as well… I love museums too, but moderation!
