Grandparents Day

For Grandparents Day Halie and I did a little project that was in her High Five magazine. I cut out a frame out of thin cardboard (the back of one of my scrapbooking paper packs), and then tore up some extra scrap pieces of paper to decorate it with. She had great fun with all the scraps and picking out which color went in what place. She loved being able to paint the glue on and getting her hands all sticky.

One of the frames in the making.

We also made "homemade" wrapping paper. I let her use markers to create a masterpiece on white tissue paper. : )

We made two frames, one for each set of grandparents, but my dad was out of town on a trucking trip and my mom needed to sleep all day in order to work that night, so we only got pictures with Papaw and Meemaw Cantrell. But Nana and Papaw loved theirs too. : )

So proud of her frame.
I'm so very thankful for both sets of godly grandparents in her life who set a good Christian example for her to follow. We love you all!


  1. Such a cute idea! I know the girls would love to do something like that!!
    Where can I find more info on the "High Five" mag? I've never heard of it?!

  2. Andrea, do you remember the Highlights magazine for kids that always had the hidden object pictures in it? Well, High Five is a spin off of that only for a younger age group, it's targeted for 2-6 year olds. It's a great magazine.


Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment. I love to hear your feedback!
