Crafting with your kids week

Well... I had to participate.



but, I'm not sure it really counts, because we do that every week.

Anyways... here are some photos of the stuff we did.

Dusted off the Cricut machine and made some spooky Halloween stuff:








I really love how our light fixture turned out... and the kids loved standing on top the table to tape the bats on.



Decorated for Halloween:

I love how Ella set up the characters on the doll house... and used the tablecloth for a bed spread.







Of course, lots of baking going on:












Those roasted chick peas and white chocolate strawberries were devoured.
Really. I've never seen anything disappear so quickly.


Cutting up magazines= good fun!






Here's some real craftiness... go to Chick-fil-A and get icecream... and don't tell the boys.




Take the girls to pick out embroidery hoops.





So they can learn to stitch.
Lucy still needed a LOT of help- Ella was surprisingly good. And she LOVED it.







Then, of course, W wanted to stitch.
He made a Frankenstein stuffed guy.






Then we went outside and learned how to jump rope... William said I had to be in one of the pictures....





Lucy preferred snacking and listening to my MP3 player (Lady Gaga is her favorite)



We colored Halloween pictures and made a 'scary haunted house tent'





Then comes the biggest reward of all:

YOU'RE THE BEST MOM EVER. It's true.




I have proof.
