We're late...we're late...for a very important date! Even though I needed three hours and only got two to get ready we finally made it to the party. The youth did a great job with setting up and running the kiddie booths. Ever one had a great time. We won the best family costume again with our Alice In Wonderland theme. :)
Here are our photos from the ward party.

Alice Annalyn March Hair Tuffer
Cheshire Cat Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum
Now if we can just get Annalyn out of her Alice dress and save it for Halloween...
Tuffer was nice enough to volunteer me to help with his clss project again this year. We wanted to make something unique, personalize, fun and useful. This is what we came up with. A Seasons Tree/clock.
First we did the background using the tops of their hands to put the color blocks on. When we had that done I took it home and painted the tree.
The next day I took it back and let the kids but "leaves" on the tree with their finger
and then sign their work on the tree with a fine point sharpie. The trick was to make the signatures visible without being overbearing.
I think they did a great job! With that done I took it home again to finish the final details.
Gloss finish paint, frame, and clock.
It went for an awesome price at the silent auction!
