Train Rag Quilt

The boys currently sleep in a Kura bunk bed from Ikea. We love it, but bed making is a chore for Tater who sleeps in the top bunk. I made a train rag quilt that fits over top of his bed. No tucking required. I used three different types of fabric. I think it looks better than an exposed fitted sheet with his blanket folded at the foot of the bed. I gave up on a flat sheet for him long ago. It ends up wadded down at the end of the bed.

Visit to G.G.'s

We drove to Nashville for Spring Break and stayed with my mom, G.G. to the boys. They loved her big backyard. I have yard envy. I really took for granted as a kid what a great yard I had to play in.

Puppet Madness!

I made another set of puppets for our growing children's puppet ministry at church. Here's the first set. This set is a little larger, but very similar to the first. They are (from left to right) Dee, Cy, Paul and Chip (a dog). Discipleship. Get it?! Don't worry. It took me a while too.

We have had nothing but positive reactions to our puppets shows. Older kids (3-7 graders) perform short skits for the younger kids (pre K- 2nd grade). Those little ones are just mesmerized by these puppets. And I have to say that this has been a wonderful creative outlet for me and such a great opportunity to share the message of Christ! I think I've been more blessed by this experience than the kids have been.

However, Tater and Monkey were a little jealous that I was making all of these puppets for the church and not for them. So, I decided to make them a couple. Meet Mr. and Ms. Green!
