Valentine's Day Part II

We may be working seven days a week, but we know to
still spend plenty of mushy time with the boys.
Heading home with vanilla-y heart cookies...

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, they love me! (yep)

Tanji gently sniffs and dutifully licks.

Uschi only wants one thing for Valentine's Day, and he's got it.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Valentine's Day Part I

We haven't been blogging as much lately because work has been
busier, but we've found a different creative outlet by making
displays for our 700+ students see and interact with.

Last week we had a Valentine's Day display; fun and...

...a bit of science too.

Learning heart anatomy can be relatively painless...

...with a good dose of chocolate.

Last week we had cats on display as well,
with plenty of pictures of T, U, and V.

 There are a lot of interesting things to learn about cats;
for some reason this got even more attention than our
dog display (just like kittens on the internet).

 Even though Uschi would have probably loved the attention
of perching in the window, we had a toy stand-in.

 This week we have a predator-prey theme going...

 The boys would probably all get a kick out of trapsing
through this window.

We better get home and spend some quality time with the boys.

Happy Valentine's Day!

T & U are nine years old!

Tanjiro and Uschi-Swirl turned nine on Tuesday, and just like some
other parents, we kind of phoned this one in.  Sure, the boys got a long
walk outside and lots of attention and play-time, but instead of b-day
cake, we ended up with...

Birthday Muffins.
Dots of chocolate chips for spotted T, who is not amused.

Almond-swirl for marbled U, who doesn't stop for muffins,

And crystal sprinkles for snowy V, who can't be left out of the fun.
