I love the little chickie mostly out of found material; though that right eye with the bit of extra acorn stuff is a little ogley (not a real word, but conveys meaning, I believe.) Is that middle picture your little one playing the part of the soccer ball scoring a goal? Very cool!

that little chickie is adorable. and the soccer - whoo hooo!

btw - ellie has a doppleganger. i was at our new park yesterday and there was a young woman with the same haircut, with downs - high functioning, who's name was also ellie. i actually looked for you because, while i've not met your ellie, your descriptions, coupled with the pictures made me sure that y'all were visiting logan.

Look at your whole family being productive! We are struggling to just send PICTURES of things to school for Abby these last two weeks!

@Rob: Hole. E. Cow. No kidding. I'm glad everyone at school wants to get to know our kids better and all, but good grief already! I've been up LATE compiling pictures at least 3 times PER CHILD this school year. Ada had two this week, Ellie has another one due Monday.

Flatflo, I got some sort of parent activity idea email and realized that the chickie (supposed to be an owl, but definitely not how it turned out) was something we could make easily out of items around the house. Free! And fun for Ada, who LOVES acorns and had a blast shopping around the yard for a pine cone, some leaves, etc.

Ellie's not such a huge fan of soccer after the first few minutes. She spends a little time on the astroturf, but as long as she's out there we're thrilled with it!

Brooke, thanks! Funny about Ellie's doppleganger! Sadly, we were not in Logan this weekend.

You will get a kick out of the fact that I just heard "She's crafty!" by the Beastie Boys in my head....

I love those Beastie Boys!

"Hide your gold, the girl is crafty like ice is cold!"
