Wait. What? People do that all the time anyway? A lot of people?
Well, then I guess I'm cool. So here's a bit of my coolness to show off because I haven't shown any of it to anyone. You're welcome.
|Thanksgiving Veggie Tray. Note the jicama, radish roses and all sorts of other fanciness.|
'Cause Healthy is Cool, right?
|Cora & I went on a leaf walk for preschool (PS--I'm doing preschool for her.) and I pressed the leaves.|
|When the leaves were dry, they needed someplace to go.|
|So with a little whimsy and a lot of blue tape, they found a home.|
|I seriously loved it so much that I was sad to take down my fall decor.|
(Hey, look! My living room's clean!)
|Abby's girls' group leader had a baby, so she & a friend picked out some fabric, we did the cutting, I sewed & all the girls tied a sweet, fluffy baby quilt for her.|
|Isn't it nice when your food is friendly?|
Especially when it screams as it goes into your mouth,
"AAAAAAHHHHHH! Don't eat my NOOOSE!!!"
|It doesn't always end up as people, though.|
|Such a sweet girl!|
She ate every last bit of it, too!
(Don't tell her that it's healthy.)
And because it's getting to be Christmas Craft Time (what? That began in October? Oh.), I wanted to showcase a few things I did a couple of years ago...
|These little guys are name elves.|
My grandma made them for us so long ago that we had to make another one for my youngest brother.
That was a long time ago.
|So I decided to share that tradition with Riah's family, as well as all of my siblings/etc.|
|And I do mean ALL of them.|
(And right about now I'm sort of grateful that that flaky dumkopf in Ireland with 8 kids DIDN'T marry my sister.)
|I sort of make peppermint bark to include on goodie plates to give to a few friends.|
Fudge, snickerdoodles, chewy gingersnaps...the basics.
|But that year I was apparently busy, so didn't include the handmade coconut macaroon bon-bons.|
Hey--a girl's gotta' know her limits.
|I'd completely forgotten about these. They turned out nice, but MAN they were a pain in the neck!|
|What??? How did that get in here? I had NOTHING to do with the Peep-wound wreath or the Peep garland that showed up on Lara's front door!|
Carin did that garland all by herself!
