day 29: pom-pom evolution

me: "hey em, let's make some pom-pom animals for the tree. what kind of animal do you want to make?"
em: "an emu! a giraffe! a lemur!"

hmmm... so this is what happens when you take your kid to the zoo one too many times. now, when all the pom-poms were finally put away, and "ooey-gooey" glue-y hands washed, we were left with...

1. an orange and black, uh, turtle-like, 4-legged critter
2. a large (grey) beak'ed penguin
3. a "standard" penguin
4. a squirrel, in two shades on brown (i couldn't resist!)
5. a... um... why don't you tell me? and...
6. emmy's beloved caterpillar, complete with TWO sets of mismatched eyes

thank goodness for my felt stash - some of these guys might actually get feet (and scarves!) before they make it on the tree. or into grandma and grandpa's christmas gift. muahahahha...


em: "how was your day, mommy?"
me: "i had a great day because i got to spend it with you. how was your day, emmy?"
em: "i had a noony-noo day and a doony day. *insert wild laughter here*"

hope your day was just as noony as ours. just one day to go till the end of november. hallejuah!

    Ok those are so cute but Em is even cuter. I love the wild laughter. She crajee! So awesome. :)

    I'm so impressed with Emmy's vocabulary. I didn't even know what a lemur was until a couple of years ago!

    And I'm so impressed that you've stuck with this NaBlahBlahBlah stuff for the whole duration! Congrats!!! I'll be missing your daily posts. :(

    Ah! So those are pom-pom animals. I had no idea... they're great! #5 looks like a three-eared googly-googlehead. (Really, there IS such athing a googly googlehead... ask LN.)

    Damn, you're like that craft-y mom I always wanted but never got.
