Valentines for Room at the Inn Shelter 2015

I've meant to post a hundred times before now and just haven't had the time. I've got some updates on the boys medically that are both good and eh... Plus we've done some really fun stuff homeschool-wise (and we are starting on robotics!). Plus all sorts of pictures I need to go and post on past dates. I promise to try and write a more relevant post soon but for now I wanted to share our valentines for the Room and the Inn shelter this year.

You might remember last year's post about making valentines for the shelter our church helps with (CLICK HERE to see that post). This year my younger brother and his girlfriend came and helped- which the boys LOVED! It was a ton of fun for all of us ;-)

Every sack was hand decorated by one of two very artistic little boys. Inside each has a baggie with 6 homemade pink & blue sugar cookies with chocolate almond bark drizzled on top and shaped in the letters L O V E or hearts. Then the sacks were stapled shut with adorable little pin buttons in case anyone just wants a little color or memento of their valentine after the cookies are gone.

Minecraft Java Design Course (free or 40% off)

Tris and Trace finally discovered Minecraft. Tris' new thing is to watch videos of people playing games on youtube and for the last couple days all he's wanted to watch is minecraft (to the exclusion of actually playing his own games). So Dad and I broke down and are buying the $27 game download card for them as a gift from us for Christmas (which is more then we've spent on a game of any sort in YEARS). My only saving grace on this one is that I have enough smartpoints in the homeschool buyers coop to get the $250 Minecraft Mod Design 1 Course ($149.99 at 40% through the co-op without smartpoints CLICK HERE) for free to add as part of the . This way we can get some school hours out of this game/sudden obsession ;-) I can't wait to see their reactions to getting this and I think Tris may really enjoy programming. I hate dealing with java, but hopefully he doesn't =p

Elf on the Shelf Coloring Fun

Happy colored a picture for the boys! His elf letter asked them to color one for him.
The cards Happy creates his elf size letters from (by folding, placing an address label with boy's name and address, then stamping with miniature North Pole postage) are found at another blog by CLICKING HERE.
