My Life with S

A Snapshot From Our Weekend 2015-11-17

Leap Pad headphones S had a rare play on her LeapPad this weekend. She’s not played on it for a while but suddenly remembered that it had an Umizoomi game on it

decorating christmas tree

We decorated our Christmas tree this weekend. A friend sold us her old one and she deliverd it on Saturday… it would have been mean to let S see it and just put it away – so we went all out with the decorations!

This is what happens when I ask my child to stand in front of the tree and smile.

christmas decoration fun

You know those silver beads you get for decorating Christmas trees? They’re really good fun to put into a plastic bottle. No, really. If you put them in neatly, you can then pull the end out and once a few have fallen out, they’re heavy enough to pull the rest magically out of the bottle. This was our entertainment for most of the weekend; I’m not even exaggerating.

electro dough

We had fun this weekend with the Electro Dough Kit. S is getting better at figuring out how to make the LEDs light, and solving problems when they won’t light up.

How was your weekend?
