I Have an Announcement!

I promised news today & here it is. I've been thinking about changing my blog for a while and I've finally done it. Some of you know that I also have a photography blog. I used to have a family blog but it sort of died out. While it's been fun having each of these blogs, I felt it was time to combine and have one.

However, if you are only really interested in the ideas I post about at Raising Memories, don't worry- you can still subscribe to the RSS feed for just Raising Memories posts. (You don't have to get updates about my life, my thoughts, and my photography if you don't want to!).

So, head over to my new blog and check it out. Click on "Subscribe" and choose which feed you're interested in (Photography, Raising Memories, or the whole blog), and we can all resume our regular blogging :)

Well, tomorrow's a special day & I'll have something new to tell you about.

First though, let me just say that a number of people (including my own mother) have contacted me, to see if my announcement is that I am pregnant!

No! That is not the announcement.

But continue guessing, it's kind of amusing! ;)

Potato Play

Why I'm thinking we have potato stamping in our future:

Psssst.... Saturday is a special day!
I'll be announcing something new that day, so stay tuned!

And because all posts are better with pictures, here's one of me and the girls in November, at the Aviary:

You can't tell in the picture, but I was basically terrified! I had a few small birds land on my head & it freaked me right out! Talia was nervous as well, so I was trying really hard (and probably failing miserably) to act like I was having fun! By the time we could see the exit, I was nearly running to get out of there. (They have some HUGE birds in that place!)

Peanut Butter Cookies

I had a roll of pillsbury cookie dough in the fridge and it was time to use it, so I got it out & got Talia involved in rolling the cookies and pressing them with a fork.

It's amazing how something so simple to me can be so fun and exciting for her!

Painting Pinecones

Again, Talia loves anything messy and she loves painting. I grabbed a few of the cinnamon-scented pinecones leftover from Chrstimas so she could make some snowy pinecones. I think it would be a great idea to go on a nature walk & find your own pinecones (like Emily at Learning Vicariously did), but we haven't done that, so this was the next best thing.

Talia noticed that when we turned her finished snowy pinecone on its end, it looked like a tree. I suggested that we might paint some green next time, and make pinecone trees. I have lots of leftover pinecones, so that'll be our next painting project :)
