I know, I know, I have totally neglected the blog. What can I say, summer is just way to much fun to sit inside and do projects. I promise I have a lot of projects coming up, I am starting on my list of Christmas projects (I ordered the fabric today). Until then, here is one thing I did over the summer. The hubby and I got lucky enough to go to Germany (his work sent him, and I tagged along on frequent flier miles). My in-laws generously insisted on watching my girls. I missed them like crazy, but had the time of my life. I made these for the girls before I left
I only had my cell phone on hand (my husband took the good camera to Germany with him, one week before I joined him). I made a countdown for the girls, so they could know how long until I came home. I just put two mamba's in everyday (two of the same color so they would not fight). We started when my husband left, so I got to see them do it for a week, before I left. They really seemed to enjoy it.
I also left ten surprises for my girls, with my in-laws. They got to open one each day, to know I was thinking of them. I got them things like, press-on nails, re-usable chopsticks, earrings, chocolate straws, stickers, hair clips (things that would not break the bank, but that they would like).
My four year-old likes to sit at the table and color, do worksheets, practice writing, etc. So I made her a book full of pages to work on at Grandma's
