We had a great time rehearsing for our New Beginnings program last night. The skit and dance will be so fun. The tutus and hats are almost done – I just need to make a gold hat for our Virtue Frog. Gold sock hats are impossible to find, by the way. I’ve been looking for days. It will be interesting to see how this one turns out.
I’ve also been keeping an eye out for Valentine clearance goodies. I love post-holiday shopping. These will come in handy one day. I won’t comment on how many bags of Valentine Dove chocolates I’ve stashed away.
In our gold hat search we came across this “Growing Pet” flamingo egg. It sits in water for several days as it slowly hatches and grows in size. My 4-year old can hardly stand the suspense.
We’ll keep it on the table as a source of dinner conversation for when the missionaries come over tonight. Chili and Fritos are on the menu, with Cherry Chocolate Cake for dessert.
I love your blog so so much! You are such a talented lady! Thank you for sharing all of this. I’m in the YW presidency and we are planning on doing your “Leap” theme for our New Beginnings and we are so excited. I was curious about the tutu’s that you made-how much tulle did you need for each? Thank you again for all your hard work!
Thanks, Kamie! We used the bare minimum for the tutus – 4 yards per color. 5 is better – but we couldn’t quite fit it into our budget!
