It's a new year, my friendsies! So let's dwell on the past a bit, shall we, and check out the MOUNTAINS OF FAB that went on here on this crazy blog last year......
Best post about Very Handsome Dwarves. (image credit IMDB)
I oh so helpfully taught you all how to make gingerbread, and I promised to do another gingerbread cake recipe later in the year, and that never happened. Yay me!
(It really is delightful.)
I made this AWESOME stick tree to celebrate Happy Chinese New Year:
And we profiled this amazing book, that your kids will ADORE, so cool, so unusual, so fun!
We also had a ball with this beautiful book:
We made a daring attempt (DARING I TELL YOU) at getting better about keeping up with our correspondence.....
I found the mother of all amazing fairy tale books!
And we made a little fairy playground for our fairies to dance around in the backyard:
(fairy glitter is better than ordinary glitter. for reals.)
I did not one, but two super Awesome posts about Laura Ingalls Wilder. Awesome post #1 can be seen here, and Awesome post #2 can be seen here.
I made a little roundup of our favorite story CD's:
And we hung out at home doing...whatever it is we do.
In the fall, we pretended that we were ghosts....
And the end o' the year was PRETTY FAB because we invented tea, read HARRY POTTER, and I had also at that time gotten underway with my new photography venture. As in, people pay me money and I take their pictures and hope they don't suck too bad.
So all in all, a bucket of excitement, no? It was a very good year, but I realized that there was one glaring thing my blog didn't get right last year, and that was a near total lack of Andrew posts. Gah, that's inexcusable! He is, at some point, going to write his dissertation on what he Really Things About Harry Potter and we can all collectively lose our minds and tell him how crazy he is. I'm super looking forward to that A LOT.
Here's to new things for 2014! And please go see my friend Danzel, she's writing about Best Read-Alouds of 2013. Also, big thanks to Darcy of No Monsters In My Bed for organizing a blog hop of 'Best of 2013' posts!
