Speaking of Creative....

Prior to the bug everyone here had a month or so ago, I can't remember the last time I actually spent a day in bed. Then in the space of less than a month, I was down *twice*. The first time, *everyone* was sick, so we were all down together. When I was down a couple of weeks ago, though, the kids had an unexpected day off (well, other than taking care of me and pitching in with the *have tos* around the house even more than usual). My mom asked me at some point if they got bored. Bored? My children? Not hardly. Once again, some of these photos left a lot to be desired, but here is a sampling of what they found to occupy themselves during their *break*:

Emlyn's paper bag book....

Peter's paper bag book....
Gracie's card...
Bayley's cards...(these were so cute...but I could *not* get a decent photo no matter what I did...ugh!)The next day while I was at the ER, they made a family of *Borrowers*...


Notice the *helmets* made out of plastic Easter eggs, and the *tools* strapped on their backs with pipe cleaners. They also made houses and furniture for them from empty boxes and all sorts of odds and ends...somehow I didn't get pictures of those. Bored? I think not. :)

How wonderful!! Mine like the idea of crafting, but the pursuit lasts about five minutes--long enough to make a mess that takes about twenty minutes to clean up!
