The girls came to stay for a few days this week! We love it when they come to visit…..we had some serious fun this time! They are getting big enough to be able to follow some very simple instructions and our activities during this visit reflected that!

We made Ladybug Cracker Appetizers that we found on the Taste of Home site for grandpa when he got home from work last night. The girls could hardly wait until Grandpa got home so they could show him and eat the treats they made! I was really surprised how little supervising this activity required. I did the cutting but they did all of the assembling and loved every minute of it!

Then we had fun making fish out of socks! Yes….you heard right…..we took brand new socks….stuffed them with tissue paper….fixed a washer in the toe and fished for them! We made fishing poles from glitter batons we bought at the Dollar Tree and attached yarn with a magnet on the end for our *hooks*. Hours of fun for sure!!!

Next time we learn to sew!!! Plastic canvas and yarn to start with……counting the days……

Joyfully In His Grip~
