Over the Thanksgiving weekend we got crafty! My mom came up with the cute handprint tree idea, so after buying a large canvas (black friday sale, yippee!), digging out the paints and a few paintbrushes, we got to work. No one even complained as I painted their hands! (Ok, ok, some had a few comments, but they all obliged :) Brian came up with the idea to make Ellie’s feet the tree trunk and it melts my heart every time I see them! Ellie’s handprints were the hardest, man that girl likes to clench her fists! Needless to say, she wasn’t very cooperative, and her handprint was a little smudgy, but we were laughing so hard we didn’t care. And from that day on, Ellie became a crafter. :)
