Happy Valentine's Day!

My friend, Lauren and I started a mom's group several weeks ago that has grown and grown. We've actually had to move from having it at alternating houses to having it at the chapel on the hospital complex. This is more of Lauren's baby than mine but I think I'll be taking the reins (along with Jen) once she leaves this coming spring/summer :-( The kids (and moms) really seem to enjoy themselves. We had an activity for the kids, making hearts out of handprints and one of the moms, Jeni gave a bit of a sign language class for us. Our goal is to get childcare and do alternating mom time/mom with child time. The days when we have mom time will be spent learning a new craft such as quilting, knitting, scrapbooking, etc. My contribution will be to learn how to blog for those that don't know how to. I'm self taught and it took me a while to get where I'm at so I'd love to help others do it. It's a great way to keep in touch with family/friends back home.
