First, the cuteness. There's nothing sweeter than a little girl in knee socks...except maybe if they're pom pom knee socks!!! Then, the inspiration. We couldn't let the New Year start without a little project to set the tone for the rest of the year! Except it was spur of the moment so the craft fairy didn't have a chance to have everything ready. Uh-oh, we'll see how this goes.
Before getting started, how about a little close-up of her tree? She was so proud of the ornaments she made! Love those! We now need not one but TWO glue sticks for projects :) And sometimes it's just more fun if you growl like a lion. Glitter is the new glue. Need to buy a present for a 2 y/o little girl? Glitter. Glitter is a 2 year old's best friend! Do you like our "snowballs"? Guess it works better if you mash them in. Silliness abounds when you're waiting for mama to cut out the next pieces. This little guy is such a good sport. He just likes playing with his toys in new surroundings.
But sometimes he needs a little diaper change, which means mama has to leave the room to tend to business. Uh-oh. Two year old + craft supplies + unsupervised time can sometimes lead to trouble. Thankfully this time it fell under the "cute mischief" category.
As I walked back into the room, I caught the little pumpkin exploring the bounds of her creativity. She didn't see me, but I saw her. She was busy stuffing pom poms into the little gingerbread house. One fluffy pom pom after another. Then she saw me :) Caught in the act! Guess that little house was too lonely and needed some tenants. When I asked her what she was doing she told me the house needed a family to live there :) And so I left the little house just like that. Packed up all the ornaments and the tree with our Christmas decorations, gingerbread house stuffed with tenants and all. Can't wait to pull out the decorations next year and reminisce over her 2 y/o creativity! May your year be full of wonder!
