thanksgiving crafts.

look what my sweet babies did with babysitter-of-the-year-eowyn yesterday!





they made teepees out of ice cream cones, frosting and sprinkles and turkeys out of tracings of their hands and feet. i love them. so stinkin cute. ellie colored her own turkey and gray had a bit of help from eowyn. there were six teepees originally, but by the time i took this picture two had mysteriously gone missing. hmmm. i have no idea what happened there.

one of the things that makes me super sad about not staying home with the kids is not getting to do fun projects like this together. but, i feel quite a bit better knowing that sweet eowyn is picking up the slack.

Fun! Eowyn is definitely great with kids - you're so blessed to have her!

I thought the teepees were Christmas trees at first. So I'll have to file that idea away for a Christmas craft. Yea! =)

Awww....you didn't have to blog about that. I'm blushing. Haha. It's a joy for me to be able to do stuff with Ellie and Grayson, especially since I don't have any babies of my own. I see it as a priviledge - so thanks for letting me play with them! :D
