Twins outfit

I've always wanted a reason to make something for twins, but I've never known anyone who had twins, until now!  My friend had twins a couple months ago and I wanted to do something fun for them.  This is what I came up with.  I think it turned out pretty cute and I'll bet its even cuter on the babies!

Birthday sock cupcakes

I saw an idea for a birthday gift for young women - Young Women's birthday sock cupcakes. So I put together a few to give to my girls on their birthdays.  Sock cupcakes are a cute little gift idea for anyone. But since this year's youth theme is stand in holy places it is especially cute.

School Valentine's

This is the first year we get to do valentine's at school because we now have a kindergartener. I've seen all these creative ideas on pinterest and decided I wanted to do something cute.  This is what I came up with.  I wanted to get a little hotwheels or matchbox car and candy for each kid, but once I got to the store I just couldn't stomach spending that much on valentine's, so they get stickers and candy.  I'm sure they will love them.  Landon was thrilled and that is all I care about.  We had fun putting them together and it got him all excited.  He has been counting down the days.  I love being a mom.

Young Women's

 The new 2013 theme for the youth is from D&C 87:8 "Stand ye in holy places and be not moved."  I've had a chance to put together a few things for the young women using the theme.  And it's been really fun.

 I made these bookmarks so that every girl could have one at the beginning of the year before we had it memorized so we could recite it each week.

 We've been putting together New Beginnings which has been both stressful and fun (as is most YW stuff).   I got to do a little announcement to put on facebook.  The image on the bottom left is from here.  The rest was generated by me.

 I got to help with generating ideas, making poms for decorations, and setting things up. 

I also got to put together this handout to give them that night.  I even wrote the poem.

It turned out great and set the scene for the topics and spirit of the event.
