Graham Cracker houses

Pictures of Caleb making a graham cracker house at preschool. He was much more interested in eating the candy and the graham crackers than he was in decorating a house. It mostly survived the ride home, but was somehow demolished while we slept that night.

Pine Cone Reindeer

I asked my sister for some Christmas craft ideas, then forwarded the list she sent me to a friend to see what sounded like it would be fun for our kiddos to do together. She picked pine cone reindeer and got all the stuff for it, so all we had to do was show up and start gluing. Caleb wasn't a fan of the hot glue gun. He'd help with the craft until he got glue on his fingers and then didn't want to do it anymore. Then after a while, I'd convince him to try again and he would participate until he got glue on his fingers again.

We ended up with two reindeer and one little Christmas tree. He liked doing the tree better than the reindeer since he could help more, but once he got glued, he was out on that one too.

Winter Hat

For Christmas, I crocheted Agnes a hat. Caleb loved it immediately and asked very excitedly if it was for him. Sadly, it was super girly looking, so the answer was no. Instead, I started crocheting him his own hat. He helped me pick out the colors and I got to work. Halfway through, as I was about to switch colors, Caleb insisted on wearing his new hat. I should have quit at this point, because several rows later, the hat was much to big for him.
