Dear Mommy, I love you! I still have not found out what the surprise is, I hope it is something nice! They were coloring a sign that said Welcome home in bright letters. It looked mostly black and white with some blue and gold in it. I am trying to figure out what it means. It has some other words on it like Oma and Opa, but I do not know what it means. Maybe something in another language? I hope I can know soon! Maybe it has to with my surprise! Do you know anything about the surprise? If you do can you give me a hint please?
I am getting tired of writing notes to you, my paws get sore a lot now. The other night Audrey had to put a oily wet liquid like thing on my hands–she called it lotion, it made shiny prints on the floor! They were fun to make.
Maybe Audrey has some colored stuff like it so I can make color footprints! Oh well. I love you and come home soon please so my paws will not get sore from writing so much.
I love you and miss you a lot.
For school I had to make a Periodic Table of the Cookies, it was fun!
We made some sugar cookies and cut them out with an doughnut hole maker, then we baked them. When they were done I frosted them with color codes. The blank cookies are elements that have been discovered but have not found enough to really prove that they found it.
We shared some and ate some. We gave our neighbors who have alpacas named after Star Wars characters Po(Potassium), and some other ones that sound like Star Wars names.
Yesterday, We helped our neighbors, the Beers, shear their alpacas; another family showed up with their angora goats. This year I swept the pads and brought in the alpacas. Megan took in Finn, she likes him a lot. The goats took three times as long as the alpacas.
We had fun and hope to do it next year.
- Colored tissue paper
- Some Con-Tact paper
- Wax paper*
- Thick Black construction paper
- Scissors and X-Acto knife
How to make one.
- Find a Nativity picture you like and print it.
- Trace it onto the Black construction paper
- Use the X-Acto knife (put cardboard under the black construction paper) to cut out around the people and the stable.
- Stick the Nativity on the Con-Tact paper
- Cut the tissue paper into little pieces
- Stick the colored tissue paper onto the Con-Tact Nativity on just the Con-Tact paper
- Glue** the wax paper* onto the back of the Nativity
*Or you cold use more Con-Tact paper.
**If you use more Con-Tact paper you do not need glue.
Megan also made one with a bonnet and one with braided arms. The girls helped with the class too. I like making corn husk dolls.
The other day we made Leaf Men. To make them you get lots of colorful leaves (get more then you think you will need), and nuts, flowers, seed pods, and more. Then you make a person or a animal or a plant or other things. Then, take a picture!
