Oh my goodness, this week is Thanksgiving already?? I know November moves faster for me than for a lot of people (39K and counting) but – Wow.
Miss Raya has a little something to share today, not that it’s an original idea, but special to me nonetheless. :)
My mother came yesterday to watch Raya for a few hours so my husband and I could have a little time out with some friends for a birthday celebration. She had hoped to trace Raya’s hand for some hand turkeys… but seriously, have you ever tried that with someone under one? Wasn’t happening, LOL.
So I suggested we do a few handprints instead and OH my GOODNESS it’s so much easier with two people!! I was only in charge of the hand and the paint. I just brushed the paint right on her hand, and I used regular acrylic. My mom was in charge of rotating the papers in front of little miss. Whenever Raya spread her hand out, I just pressed it onto the paper. (At the end, I held her up to the faucet and my mom washed her hands. It was a very efficient way to go, LOL.)
We kept this print for home, and sent the rest with my mom. She was really excited to share some grandma-ness with a few long-distance friends and relatives. I of course added the extra feathers and turkey-touches. :)
We considered doing a more traditional “thankful” hand turkey, had we been able to trace it after all. This one would have said she’s thankful for Cheerios, her blanket, her monkey, and her family. :) Do kids still make hand turkeys??
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you this week! I hope you all have safe travels and spend some relaxing time with your loved ones!
