Okay, some of these are going to be kinda’ old, but I thought I’d post about what we’ve been doing lately. First of all…
Dad and Spencer installed a slide in our basement by laying cardboard on the stairs. It’s really incredibly fun! 🙂
In motion. *sigh* But those two are always in motion, even without a slide! 🙂
Yes, even us “bigs” did it…
Including me. 🙂
I never thought I’d be the one to post about crafts, but this was just so cool, I HAD to post about it! It’s really simple: you just write/draw something on a piece of paper with a white crayon, and then water-color over the top. The white shows through!
Voice of Experience: make sure your crayon-lines are thick. Otherwise they don’t show very well. Oh! and if you don’t think it’s working at first; try painting a little more before giving up, because if takes a minute sometimes.
Guess who made this one? Mama made one that said ‘Joy’ and I went with the fruit-of-the-spirit-theme. And seriously what other one could I do???
I also made an “H” [for Hanna], but the crayon didn’t show up real well… I’m blaming it on my brush–and whoever stole my first brush (by mistake) and gave it to Lucy. Mama got me a different one that worked better, but it still only worked so well.
What’s that? Oh! no, there’s no point. Just me being artsie again, that’s all.
Lu saw people playing dominoes at grandma’s house, and was very interested. We got ours out and she played it with Becca and I one evening while the big boys were gone and Mom was putting Michael to bed.
I found dominoes quite picturesque:
We had these left over, and I figured out that they all went together…
Except this one:
Poor, lonely, little domino!
Butterflies this time. I have NO idea where that came from! We’re still crazy about Cinderella… though at the moment Kipper the Dog is playing in the background–Michael’s choice. 🙂
This is from a while ago, but I thought I’d post it anyway ’cause it was just way too cute!
Over and over and over and over…
There’s never a dull moment at MY house!!! 🙂
Happiest of Friday’s to you! 🙂 🙂 🙂
