My kids hate when I take their pictures.  So I have a lot of pictures of them looking slightly depressed.  But they are a very cute depressed.

Recycled Crayons

Easy activity for preschoolers, and a great way to use leftover crayons.  
Unwrap the crayons and break them into small pieces.  I put them into a silicon muffin tin, which made them really easy to get out.  But, there is still a waxy film on the tin.  So you might want to use a tin or pan from a garage sale or something you picked up for cheap because you may not be able to resurrect it.  Put the pan in a 150 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes.  Keep a close eye on it.
There was a slight waxy buildup on the top of each crayon when I pulled it out out of the oven.  I used a paring knife to scrape it off.

Baby Z

A sweet picture of my sweet nephew I took while my kids were playing with their cousins.  Sometimes the living room photoshoots turn out great.
