Sarah Beth's birthday was Monday, and I was trying to figure out what to get for her. She enjoys shopping at Hobby Lobby, wishing for different things. So I told her that I would take her to Hobby Lobby, just the two of us, and let her pick out some things for her birthday.
She loved that idea, and we had such a good time shopping. I liked the fact that she picked out things that she had to figure out how to put together. And she learned two important lessons with these projects: 1) read the instructions; 2) ask for help when you need it.
The fairy came as a plain doll that she had to dress, put hair on, and even color the face. She had to sew the cupcake together, and she likes that the stitches look like sprinkles. I think she did a great job with her fairy and cupcake, don't you?
First, I am a child of God, adopted into His family through the blood of His Son Jesus Christ. Second, I am helpmeet to my husband John of sixteen years. Third, I am mother to Sarah Beth who is ten years old, to Daniel who turned nine in February, to Rachel who turned seven at the end of January, to Mary who turned five in December, and to Hannah who turned one in February.
