Jump Class

All weekend Melia asked and asked and asked for us to take her to "Jump Class".

me.."What do you do at jump class?"

"Mom, we jump"

me.."Well, of course...who is at jump class"

"Makayla" (a little girl who Melia has officially met one time...she is the sister of a girl in her preschool class...who she sees now and then at pick-up and drop-off...she talks about her all the time, even telling us all the things that Makayla likes to do at her house)
Today after being asked ten times in 30 seconds if I could take her to jump class, I had a brainstorm and decided to make a car with the girls, so Melia could drive herself to jump class.

Here is what we did.

Personalized Initials License plate

This sporty convertible has two doors, four (paper-plate) wheels, and TWO moving steering wheels. It is even equipped with seat belts, but this model is not equipped with airbags or power windows :).
A little video of the work

And for a bonus...a few pics of Melia ready for her Valentine party at preschool
Valentines in hand...we made choc covered pretzel sticks with pink, red, and white
hearts on them (used a candy mold)

Strike a pose
