I added more pictures to the December album (click here). There are some videos too (click here)

There are a few things I've wanted to give a post of their own, but I haven't gotten to it: Abigail's preschool Christmas program & decorating the Christmas tree are two that come to mind. For now, the albums will have to suffice :)

A note on links:
Ever since I changed the blog layout, I have noticed that when I post a link it doesn't change the font size or color to indicate a hyperlink.

I used to always just put the link in with the text, like this: I added more pictures to the December album
But with the new formatting, you can't see just by looking that in the last sentence "December album" is a link.

I'm going to see if I can fix it, or at least try to remember to specify when I have inserted a link (like I did at the top of this post). If you think something might be hyperlinked, just hover your mouse over the words. They should turn red and show that there is a link to click through.

Preschool Project: melting crayons


Electric griddle covered with foil

Paper (we used construction paper & coffee filters, but any paper will work)

Broken crayons

Oven mitt
Paper towels

Add one very excited 4 1/2 year old

1) Heat griddle to "Warm" or the lowest setting.

2) Careful, it's hot! Now draw/scribble/write on the foil with crayons.

3. Using an oven mitt, press paper onto the melted wax.

4. Lift off paper and admire your finished product as it cools.

5. Wipe wax off foil with paper towel, then draw again.
