First, yesterday I got back into the swing of things for fall and had craft time with the girls. I'm going to try really hard to do either craft time or a field trip on every non-preschool day this school year. We'll see how long I can keep it up!
I got the idea of these apple trees off Pinterest....easy set up and all the supplies were readily available. My kind of project :-)
|Paint paper plate green---ta da! You have "leaves"|
|I still think of Brielle as my baby and don't often include her in our projects...I'm trying to be better about that!|
|Cut out a tree trunk shape and finger paint it brown--ta da! A trunk.|
|Looks like pudding! ;-)|
|Thumbprints in red paint = apples ...When dry assemble and ta da! An apple tree :-)|
|Brielle was throwing a tantrum because she didn't want to be in the picture lol|
|Raya was willing to help out with the "art show" though! (And on this day Raya dressed herself--at least I was one again impressed with her matching ability)|
|All the pics up to this point were taken with the crappy camera because I had misplaced my good one---sorry!|
Raya is still obsessed with taking pictures of herself...here is another one I found on the camera recently hehe
Last weekend we went to the H family reunion, but I was really bad and forgot to take pics. Sorry! I did take these pics of the girls on the car ride down though---they insisted on holding their GIANT monkey and owl pillows in the car---they could barely see over them to watch their DVDs!
Here is a random picture of Raya before we left to drive down there
You can't see the ears in these very well, but this is so cute on! (didn't get a pic of Raya in the owl one)
Our whole house is sick with colds right now, and Lee and I have it the worst currently, so there is lots of whining and coughing, and snot around here...boo. Please forgive this rather pointless update! :-P
To end, a new blog segment we're going to call "Play clothes--what she wore!"
Ya know, because obviously I'm following the preschool recommendation to send my child is old worn clothing for play ( or not ;-) Hey people, in my defense I TRIED a play outfit this morning but then Raya saw Brielle in a skirt and she cried for a dress....so the teachers got to see what "play clothes" in our house looks like LOL
|Clearance Target dress from last season and Kmart shoes.|
|New favorite hairstyle...remember doing those ponytails that you then turn "inside out"?|
|We will let Brielle join this segmant when she feels like it. Today here she was wearing a Carter's onesie, Okie Dokie skirt, and Kohls jumping beans shoes---all handme downs from Raya. (And yes, we need to stage a puppy paci intervention)|
