Without stealing anyone's thunder, the baby was indeed born this week.
Since I am here with actual children, we have been doing baking and crafts! We decorated cupcakes from a Easy Bake Kit,
dyed tons of eggs (50+),
and decorated canvas backpacks.
I purchased these backpacks at Joanne Fabric and Crafts. They were on clearance, and I had a coupon. Total cost was about $3 each. We used Crayola fabric markers to decorate the bags.
Before I came, I created the notebooks shown in the top picture. The children have enjoyed writing stories like their mom. I will post pictures of how to create the notebooks when I get back to NC.
