I gave Caleb a clue about his gift… that it contains the letters L and M. He didn’t guess, but a LEGO Minecraft building set made him a happy boy!
I took my camera to their party but didn’t even remove it from its bag. I found a cozy spot with a view of the 18 children and 14 adults gathered in this small but welcoming little cape cod home. I had to ask Jamie to send me a few pics of these these sweethearts each surrounded by people that love and pray for them as they grow.
Basket of Bean Bags
So here is how I went about making the basket of bean bags
While at the craft store, I considered using beads as filler, making the bags washable. Because I wanted more weight to the bags and because the cost of the beads was more than I want to spend on this project, I opted to use dried beans. It took a little more than one bag each of dried beans and dried peas to fill the ten bags. I like the weight and the feel of the beans.
After filling each bag, I stitched it closed using the sewing machine. With the left-over scraps of fabric, I fashioned a bow and tie and secured it to the basket handle.
