Love Overflowing

Keeping busy…

on November 25, 2009

It’s been rainy off and on and it gets dark too early. That leaves me trying to find something to do in the time after Emily wakes up from her nap and when Daddy gets home. Can’t play outside most of the time…Not always enough time to do much running…

This past week, we have done two mini-projects. I thought I would get more Thanksgiving crafts done but that has not been the case. Laziness, lack of planning on my part, etcetera, etcetera. Many, many excuses…. One thing we did do was make a hand and foot turkey.

I traced Emily’s hands on colored construction paper and cut them out. For her feet, I used beige. Didn’t have brown. Out of the scraps, I cut out a beak, gobbler and feet. Emily didn’t like the beak I made so she cut one herself out of green. Gives it some pizzaz, don’t you think?


The other thing we did was break out the bead set that Emily got for her birthday. She has been bugging me to make a bracelet and I just haven’t made the time do to it until recently. She did pretty much all of this herself. She picked out the beads she wanted to use and put them on the stretchy rope/string thing. She is very proud!
