A week or so when it rained for about eight days in a row, the babies were just getting over a cold. I couldn't take them outside to splash in the puddles with their wellies for fear they would get sicker, so we did a lot of this:
Sugar Plum was pretty devastated by the realization that the prisms we had recently hung in our windows wouldn't work without the sun shining. Fortunatly, I had a book of kite paper purchased to make window stars, so we jazzed up the dreary view with a bright yellow one. I think that they will really cheer things up in the gray and brown haze of January and February next year. Despite how intricate they look, they were quite easy!
