School Sale is over.... Thanksgiving is here....

I thought I would show you the crafts I did.  I'm going to do more for Christmas presents... I warn you...  Anyhow, I didn't do as much as usual because of our crazy life with building and all that entails but I did make an effort.  SO what you see is felt purses,{my girls loved them} gift cookies made with oatmeal, craisins, walnuts, and white chocolate, Christmas wall hangings, and fridge magnets.
Here is a better picture of the magnets.  I got my idea out of a book at the library but after the project was done I found them bigger and better in Sharon's store.  So much for originality... Hahha!  It's a half marble, craft paper, and good magnets.  I could only find those at Michael's .  I love heavy duty magnets.  Half the time the school projects the kids bring home float to the bottom of the fridge because they don't have decent magnets in this town.  I do love living in the sticks though.
And of course, the usual baking day right before.  This year I did 100…

Perspective...

ON Sat.  The children and I spent awhile outside raking pine needles and cleaning the yard.  It was interesting hearing their different perspectives on the operation.  They both had ideas why its good to rake the yard as well as good reasons why its good not to rake the yard.  The latter ideas being after they were tired of the while thing.   It made me think about life and families and our differences....

Here's some majorly different perspectives....  This was fun.... Look at all the originality popping out in each sibling.   
Think about what each one is thinking.... Kari, I agree totally...smile
And then its nice when everyone gets it right together....  Thanks for the poses all.  It's been good.
