Sunday Art

ZB has a few friends over on the second Sunday of each month for some arts & crafts time.  It seems so much more justified to pull out all the supplies and make such a mess when there's more than just one child doing the project!  Last Sunday was the first one, and the kids made Salt Dough outside, squeezed, poked and prodded it into interesting creations and then baked it  while the toddlers snacked and played. 

This Sunday they made sun catchers by markering on coffee filters and then painting over that with water.  They didn't turn out as bright as we had hoped, but the kids had so much fun making them!  Even a couple of the big kids joined in...

Enjoying the Fall

Everywhere I look on the internet is cute crafts and photos all getting ready for Christmas and Winter.  I am enjoying the great Fall weather while we still have it!  I'm not a huge fan of snow (if God could only make warm snow, I'd be all about it!).  A pumpkin is roasting in the oven right now prepping for a nice batch of pumpkin ale homebrew, and a rich veggie soup is simmering on the stove as the night cools down a little from the 60 degree days we've been having.
ZB seems to be ready to nest into Winter, I guess.  She had the idea to make a box house, which I thought was pretty neat for a 2yo - I don't think she's ever seen one before!
But she is sure enjoying these last Fall days...

 when she can still get good and muddy and not too cold!

  ZB and her friend Jude had too much fun adding dandelions and pebbles to the mud and then jumping with reckless abandon.
I had to make sure to get a couple shots before the headed in for a bath :)
