By the window is a paper mache snowman pinata; still soggy from two days ago; patiently waiting for a bit of sunshine to help it dry out. Aaa..it is starting to stink a bit and seems to have contracted measles; with little spots here and there. It’s been raining off and on for the past few days; which doesn’t help Mr. Snowman at all. If worse comes to worse, I could spray him with a bit of Lysol and for the spots?…the crepe paper will do the job to cover his ’blemishes’. Or if worse comes to worse comes to worse; never fear…Walmart is near!
took him out for a bit of sun but the rain started up in minutes..poor thing
I had a great morning! I volunteer at a nearby elementary school; helping a 3rd grade class with reading assignments. I wanted to give kids (all 29 of them) a little something for Christmas but the challenge was keeping the cost down. After a bit of pondering, I decided to sew each a water bottle holder instead of making a goodie bag filled with snacks and little what nots. The kids LOVED them. One of the girls hugged her holder. SO CUTE.
I made 16 of these ...
... and 13 of these
But my great morning didn’t end there. The class joined in with other 3rd graders to help the Kindergarteners with making gingerbread houses. I was thrilled to watch the kids work together to create the most lovely gingerbread houses. The kids never hesitated to think about what to do; their little hands constantly moving, each decorating their little houses in different ways with marshmallows, teddy grahams, m&ms, jelly beans, candy corn. I felt blessed to be in their company.
