I have to give credit to my friend, Meg. This morning, while the girls were entertained for a moment watching the electricians working at our house, I made a quick phone call. In the course of the call we both were brainstorming ways that we can keep our kids active and busy while we work. She mentioned having her children collect acorns for the candle centerpiece. Hers looks a little different but the idea is the same and so great for the kids to do-active outside and they could do the whole thing without help from mom. So these are our center pieces and Ella improvised with the little bit of green.
So what do you do when they are done with that task in 15 minutes? (Was hoping for a little longer) Send them out with the camera with many pleads and gentle reminders to be careful with Mommy’s camera and let them shoot away. And as I was looking through them tonight-I enjoyed a couple of them.
Ella’s jump rope handle. She has been a jump roping fool, as of late. She has just taken off and we hear a lot of “Cinderella, dressed in yella, went downstairs and kissed a fella…” This picture actually made me laugh a little. Just cute.
And when that was done…just let the little rats help me cook. Took a little longer but I am thankful for the hugs and kisses that come along with the work. Couldn’t ask for anything more. Happy Thanksgiving!
