Puppets Anyone...

Chris and I work together at HHBC in their childcare on Sunday and Wednesday nights. Chris volunteered to pick out the craft last Wednesday night, he came back with all the fun materials to make hand puppets: brown paper bags, eye stickers, yarn, and pom-poms. We ended up with 10 very active two-three year olds that night, we normally only have about 6-7. While the kids were playing, Chris started working on a puppet. I thought, "Oh he is making a sample one, that's good." Well it was time for the kids to start cleaning up so I could read them the story of Zaccheus and then it was time to color the picture of Zaccheus climbing a tree to see Jesus. I look over and Chris is still at the counter working on the puppet, so I decide to check out this puppet that he is giving all this time too. Well what do you know, he was making a puppet of himself! He did take a break to help half of the kids make their puppets, they got to stick on the eyes, glue on the nose and color the bag, we ran out of time to glue yarn (hair) onto all of the kids puppets. While the kids went back to playing, Chris started on another puppet, I thought, "Oh no, he is making me!" And I was right. So here is the picture for everyone's enjoyment of Chris' artistic puppets....

And of course he added the Heart Support and Toms Shoes logos once we got home to properly represent!!! I'm thinking he did a pretty good job, they kind of look like us! :)

It's late, I'm tired and yet there is so much to do...

The house needs to be cleaned, the laundry needs to be done, and I just want to go to bed. But hey, at least the sink is empty...only because Chris and I went on a double date to dinner and a movie with our good friends John and Breanne Blanchard. We went to Chipotle (PRAISE THE LORD, THEY FINALLY CAME TO OK) which of course was wonderful and then we went to see the movie Cloverfield. It was an interesting movie to watch...I didn't really care for it or how it ended...I will say that the camera work was pretty cool but after awhile it got annoying to watch. I thought it was funny that they had a disclaimer on the theater door stating that if you were prone to motion sickness then you might not want to see the movie. I'm all about JJ Abrams TV shows, well mainly LOST, but not so sure I'm a JJ Abrams movie fan. Anyway, it was a great night out with friends and, oh my goodness, so nice to be able to have a conversation without any kids interupting!!! Love the kids, but Chris and I were in desparate need of alone time. Again, PRAISE THE LORD his family lives here now!!! Have a great night and you know what I will be doing in the morning...that's right cleaning and laundry!
