October Happenings

Yesterday was jam-packed with art projects for Ava.  First she started off with some finger painting on a wooden board so she can have it in her room.  After dinner we all sat down to decorate a halloween gingerbread house.  I didn't have many expectations for it, just a lot of sticky mess, but Ava loved it.  She had a hard time getting the heavy jelly beans to stick to the house, but Shaun put frosting on the cardboard and she piled on the candies (ate a lot too, but also piled)! What I didn't expect was how serious Shaun was about the project.  I didn't realize that he had NEVER made a gingerbread house before, even graham cracker ones.  Needless to say he'll have another go at it come Christmas time :)  And please don't mind Ava's messy hair.  Sometimes I just don't stand a chance with it.
