K's gifts to us



K and I had a magical mama-daughter day together in December at the Micha-el Waldorf School, thanks to Mel of Haddy2dogs who let us know about it! I love days when we get some one-on-one time together. That is when K made her Christmas presents for Kevin, C and I. She put so much thought and energy into each one. We all loved them. C might have loved her a bit too much, she took a bite out of one of hers...

I am sharing our day in pictures because I took far too many!




Creating her lantern


Deeply engaged in drawing


Waiting for her turn at the beeswax ornament making





The wonderful Jessica of The Moon Goat and Crazy Momma Productions teaching the kids to make pin cushions.


My gift - a moon and star lantern


One of C's gifts - a beeswax star ornament, as I mentioned above, she ate her other present... it WAS a beeswax moon.


a couple of Daddy's gifts - magnets with K's drawings inside of a stone. She made 6 of these for Daddy, I think these were her favorite things to make.





I have many more pictures of the school uploaded to my flickr page as well as the flickr Waldorf Kindergarten and early childhood classrooms group. Please check out this wonderful school, proof that a Waldorf education can be achieved on a budget.

I planned on having all of our Christmas pictures and posts done by this Wednesday, the last day of the 12 days of Christmas but I think it may be carried out until the end of the week, instead. I still have so much to share!

Wishing you many magical moments of your own!!

I am totally cracking up about the fact that C ATE one of her presents. Sounds like something Pita Pocket would do. :)

:) Lovely. You must alert me to more of these crafting days. I seem to be out of the loop.

What a little sweetheart K is! And how lucky you are to have such a wonderful school to visit.

I just caught up on your WIP Christmas post too. The quilts look beautiful! I LOVE your choice of fabrics and colors!

About the catnip mice though... now you can't blame the kitties for attacking your wool!

Dia said...

What beatiful kids!! & what a sweet job K did!! She reminds me of my youngest granddaughter (5 next week) - & love the little felt nativity folk! I've done several wee nativity sets using sheets of felt - & have made felt, but don't think I've done any quite like these!! I usually embroider little happy faces - yours are adorable!
