Ellie begged me for a pack of glitter and tissue paper this week. Our family room was turned into a craft studio and many fun masks were the result. I'm not sure if the house will ever recover from the onslaught of glitter, but it provided many hours of creativity.
Our family loves travel, hiking, camping, birding, reading alound,
biking and playing games together. We currently live in Utah with our 5 children.
