Happy Harvest

I found this cute little autumn foam craft kit at Michael’s a while back and thought it would be a nice project for the boys and I to work on one day.

It’s nothing complicated- just 52 two pieces of foam to put together.  Most of the decorative pieces were peel and stick which made me happy that we didn’t have to glue anything.

Cutie Pie, Wildman and I put on some music last Saturday evening and got busy with our assembly.  It was a nice distraction from J’s obvious absence.  He’s on an extended business trip and our evenings are very quiet…

Our 3D foam statue came together in no time with me lettering the “Happy Harvest” sign and the boys doing the rest.  It now has a place of honor on the desk in our family room.

I love finding simple crafts that both the 4-year-old and 6-year-old can work on together without getting frustrated or fussing at one another!

Guess Who Came Home for the Weekend?

That’s right!  Buddy, Wildman’s class pet!  The boys could not be more thrilled to have a guinea pig at their house for the weekend.

As far as guinea pigs go, I’d say Buddy is pretty awesome.  I don’t know much about these guys since I’ve never had them as pets or been around them much.  But I’m super happy that he is quiet and does not bite.  The boys have discovered that Buddy loves grapes and have given him a couple each day.

I’m still not a pet person but I’m glad we had this little visitor for a while.  It was fun!
