DIY {alphabet books}

In an effort to curb boredom when stuck inside due to the heat, the older boys and I made little “ABC” drawing books. It is a super easy and simple idea. I cut 8.5×11 paper in half and folded the sheets into book pages. Each spread had a “big” letter and a “little” letter. C created stories for each letter…”Big D jumping off a diving board while little d went sailing on a boat”. H just circled every letter, but has enjoyed having his own alphabet book he can read by himself. The covers are just folded cardstock paper with stickers spelling out their names. They were so excited to read their books to their daddy when he arrived home….

E is so excited about coloring now…I love his little fingers holding these

I always get excited when I find a blog from someone here in Oklahoma and your blog does not disappoint. I am super excited to try the pallet “couch” in my 16yr. old son’s room, is it comfortable at all? When you go back to work I definatley want to book a session, I have so many ideas. Your family is beautiful and I love your baby’s name… so unique, I gave my girls unique names and spellings and told them that they would always make an impression! So nice to meet you.
