The Gift

This year for Christmas, I was inspired to attempt some crafty gifts for those most dear. With the addition of a new ceramic store in our downtown and a Group On discount code, it was meant to be. Meeting up with our dear friends A & M and their Mama, D collectively we two mamas managed our foursome in a room filled with fragile breakables and bottles of paint. The were no causalities, however M, D's 20 month old son, did manage to taste some green paint.

Maeve went out of her way to select the perfect gift for Bry. Her painting skills are on par for those in the under two set, and her attention to detail leaves something to be desired, however I can think of nothing more perfect for her father's desk at work.

 When I think of it, there should be no surprise that Maeve chose Cookie Monster, especially after seeing her on Christmas day with her new favorite toy.
