10/52 - puppet show

puppetshow story board

Yesterday was my mother's birthday and we spent the day with her.
Most times when we get together she has a little 'something' for Grace and William.
She's a knitter and this time her little gift was a set of 2 handmade puppets for each of them.
(He's playing with a puppy and a crocodile)

As much as my kids love the Wii and their ds systems, 
they love to use their imaginations even more.
This morning Will played and played with the puppets...the sound
effects were the best!

I couldn't choose one for my project 52,
these 4 were my faves!

Oh my goodness, these are brilliant! Your Mum is brilliant!

Love these photos. I wouldn't have been able to decide either. Although I do love Will's expression in the second photo down on the left! But the others show the puppets better! They are all priceless!

What a precious gift your mom made for Grace and Will. These photos of Will are adorable. I can almost hear his conversation between the croc and puppy. So beautiful...

I love that they use their imaginations like that. That will carry them very far - much farther than wii will.

Sweet puppets your Mom made.

Have a great week! We're on March break here. Woot,woot!
