Here's what I got for you

My first foray into balloon animal making, courtesy of the Easter Bunny (and some really twisted instruction sheets) --->



The other pictures (of Youngest Nephew's first attempt at balloon animals - picture an octopus... with 3 legs) did not come out as planned. Since I don't have my brother's permission to post YN's face (and am not sure I would even if I did), you're sadly just going to have to take my word for it. It rocked!

We also made a light saber - the weapon of choice for any Star Wars obsessed soon to be 6 year-old. That didn't rock. In fact, it popped. Immediately upon completion. Now picture tears - well, near tears.

BUT... the day was saved by these


fabulous cookies.

Of course, now I have no more Thin Mints.


Now picture tears again.

Have a great week everybody!

Thanks for stopping by everybody!

Caro - it does look more like the Easter bunny than the dog the paper told me it would turn out to be, but I guess that's cuz I misjudged the ear length.

tnchick - It actually wasn't that difficult. I think I was just too afraid that they'd pop. Clowns never seem to be, but every twist I made I winced.
