7 up poodles!

Ok- Here they are The 7 Up Poodles!
I am making these for my daughters preschool. I found the pattern on the internet and thought I'd give them a try. They go over a can of pop. The preschool class is very small. I hope they enjoy them as much as my daughter is about taking them to school.

Better Late than Never!

Before Christmas I bought one of those ginger bread house kits. Each child got to do a section. I bought more candy and they really had some fun with this. I'm glad I got a picture because after a few days they couldn't leave it alone.
