In an effort to have more "together time," the boys and I decided to do some crafts. I have a bunch of craft kits that came from the last Relief Society stuff-swap I attended. We pulled them out and picked the craft the boys wanted to do first: a Halloween themed pompom creature called "Screaming Me-Me" and an owl mask. In the process, we managed to run out of glue and scotch tape. Jon cut up as many pieces of scrap paper as he could find. Kai spit up all over the floor. Isaac got glue on the carpet. Here's the resulting fun (and mess):
(Kai just wanted to eat the mask, but Isaac kept attempting to get a picture of him wearing it) (Yes, that's my running shoe. Apparently, it makes a good boat for Skylanders, so I'm always missing one.)
When we were all done, Isaac decided he needed to take his own picture of his Screaming Me-Me. And then set it as Grandma Sue's picture on my phone. Now, every time my mother-in-law calls, this is what I see:
Was it worth the clean up? Oh yes.
