Sienna's Holiday Luncheon

Sienna's third grade class had a fun holiday luncheon that I was able to help out with. They just finished reading "Little House in the Big Woods" so they fashioned their party after that. The decorations and all the food were from that era, as well as the gifts they were to exchange with each other. Sienna was supposed to make a baby cradle, and I thought a blanket too. Turns out we didn't have to do both. I was stressed, I can't sew well at all. I was really proud of this little blanket I made, and so was Sienna, she didn't want to give it away. I tore up a pair of pants of mine and an old curtain. :o) It's my first sewn blanket ever, and I was so pleased with myself. The actual cradle was a little lame, but it did actually rock, thanks to a little help from Ryan. When I saw the cradle Sienna received from one of her friends I was a little embarassed, hers is so fancy. My redeeming grace is that we were the only ones who made a blanket and a mattress! So my ego was restored... These boys were so cute. When I pulled my camera out to take pictures of Sienna, they yelled for me to "Wait! We want to be in the picture too!!" So there they are... Sienna's cradle also came with a stuffed animal. Cheaters. Why didn't I think of that??
