2 Little Pigs
Nathan made some fun things for the kids for Christmas. Aren't these little piggy banks fun!
Nathan was a little sneaky with this shelf. Hannah thought he was making it for me, and it was fun to see her face when she realized it was for her.
I made a couple things, too - handkerchiefs for dad, chickens for mom, and nightgowns for the girls and their dolls.
I saw pictures of handkerchiefs like these last Spring. My dad always has a cloth handkerchief in his pocket, and I figured it was about time for a couple new ones. As Christmas got closer I searched for the pictures I had seen earlier, but I could not find the blog that I had visited before. So I had to go it alone, and I think they turned out really cute.
The chickens are for mom's kitchen. Nathan cut out all the wood and I just painted them. I even sanded the edges - I felt like a real tole painter! Next thing you know I'll be sponge painting the walls in my kitchen.
Here are the girls and their dolls on Christmas morning with their matching nightgowns.
John was not forgotten, I made him pj pants, and Nathan fixed the climbing bear for him.
John can make that bear really move!
