The kids have been hard at work making claymation characters. Mom made a practice character, Dad took it apart to teach the kids how to make their own. Then each kid got to make their own characters with bones. We started with characters with no arms as they are an easier place to begin.
Then the kids each got to practice a walking sequence with their character. Creating the walking sequence consisted of taking a picture, moving the character, and repeating over and over until you have the desired number of pictures.
This is a picture of the headband that I just crocheted for Hosanna. She is sitting on the twin size blanket that I crocheted for her last Christmas.
Daddy took the 4 younger kids on a walk to the park. It was a cold day, but not too cold. The kids ran races across the field, climbed on rocks, played on the playground, and explored until they were exhausted. It was a fun day for all.
