I think we will start with Claire's photoshoot! I hope you like it! :)
So yesterday, Claire and I were both sick so we stayed home, while the rest of the girls went to school. Claire was tired of just laying around, and she thought it would be more fun to beg me to do a craft with her. I finally gave in and tried to think of something Thanksgiving themed we could do. I think I saw this craft on American Girl Fan a year or so ago, but I don't think mine looks exactly like hers, if I remember correctly. Anyways, we decided to make little napkin holders and I think they are just the cutest little things ever! Claire wants to do some talking on this next part, so I'll hand it over to her! :)
Which one was your favorite?!
Hey everybody! Claire here! Today me and mom made some cute little napkin holders! Mom said that since I wanted to do the craft so bad, I had to go gather all the supplies! It took me a while to find every thing, since I'm so tiny, but I got the job done!
Here I am cutting the paper for the napkin ring. I have no idea why mom took a picture of this, I guess she thought it was cute.
And then I'm wrapping the napkin ring around the napkin....blah, blah, boring!
Here I am with my finished turkey napkin ring!
I think it turned out looking adorable! What about you?!
Ok, here is the last thing for today, the Grateful Blogger Tag! Thanks sooo much to Hope, Carli G., Jessica Rae, Ella Louise, Rylee, and Ginny and June for nominating me!
- Thank the person who nominated you, they will surely appreciate it! Also, leave a link back to the person who nominated you.
- Write about ten things you are thankful for. Here is the tricky part though; you can't just say you are grateful for gum or video games or whatever "little" thing it is you want to discuss. Think deeply about what is really really important to you, such as family, or life in it of itself. Explain why you are thankful for those things.
- Tag ten other bloggers; our goal is to tag everyone!! Comment on the blogs you nominate so that they will know that they were tagged!
- Add the pic above to you sidebar or award page thanking the person (or people) who tagged you.
I am thankful for:
I am sooo thankful for what God has done for me and continues to do for me each day. He has blessed me so much and helps me through life, even on the tough days.
2. My friends and family.
I am very grateful for my friends and family and all they do for me. They support me no matter what (at least my parents do) and I love them all to pieces. I have been blessed with such a kind and loving family who takes care of me and will always love me. I am so thankful that my none of my family is abusive or high on drugs all the time, or even smokers or drinkers. I am also thankful that nobody bullies me, not even people who aren't my friends.
3. That I'm not sick or dying in a hospital somewhere.
I am extremely thankful that I don't have any deadly disease and that I'm not laid up in some hospital where I know nobody, for months. That could happen to anybody at anytime and I'm so grateful it is not happening to me.
4. That I have a home to live in and food to eat.
I am really thankful that I have a nice house to live in with lots of space outdoors for photography and such. I'm grateful that I have food to eat, and that I don't have to be starving and literally be dying of starvation.
5. My camera.
I am so thankful for my camera. Even though its not amazing quality, it still takes pretty good pictures. Without it, I wouldn't be able to share my love of photography with you all.
6. My beautiful dolls.
I am so grateful that I own 5 beautiful, amazing, and expensive dollies. ;P I wouldn't be here talking to you today, If it wasn't for them. I love each one of them, and I am very content with them. :)
7. For all the little things people do for me in life, even though I may not notice.
I am very thankful for all the little things people do for me everyday. Especially the things my mom does for me. I don't even noticed when she's around, but when she and my dad go on a trip for a few days, everything goes wrong and I even end up forgetting my lunch! That's when I realize and stop to think about all the little things that I normally don't notice.
8. Nice clothing
I am really grateful for all my nice clothing and that I don't have to look trashy. I'm so glad that I have a buzillion outfits and like, 20 pairs of shoes.
I am so grateful for all the freedoms we have in the U.S. We have so many freedoms that we don't even realize or ever think about. Those freedoms could be taken away from us at any minute and we could be like people in other countries who don't have many freedoms at all.
10. Sewing machines and fabric.
I am very thankful for my sewing machine and fabric to sew with. Sewing is something I really enjoy doing, and I don't know what I would do all day without it! ;)
Anyways, I think that was "deep" enough, and I hope you guys read it all!
P.S. does anybody know why McKenna's tag says 2011 if she was the GOTY in 2012? Just curious... I just noticed it on her yesterday.
Thanks sooo much for reading!!!
