To Be A Kid Again

It was a simple night at our house.

We took advantage of the unusually warm (70 degree) November weather and grilled pork chops that were marinated in Goya Mojo Criollo.  Served with a side of salad dressed in honey, garlic salt and olive oil and cinnamon sweet potatoes.  Fast to make and easy to eat.


After dinner I should have been painting the door we removed from our bathroom last week, or folding the laundry washed yesterday, or wiping the heavily trafficked kitchen floor.  Instead, on a whim I reverted back to my elementary days and I took Steve with me.


We made pumpkins!  I made a bunch of these for my mom when I was a kid.  They were just so cute, I wanted my own.  She refused to give me any of hers, so I had only one choice.  I had to make my own pumpkin patch.  Thank goodness I never get rid of crafting supplies and I still had sculpey clay.


Gee was it a fun night!  I forgot how relaxing arts and crafts were.  I completely forgot about everything else I could have been doing.  I stuck out my tongue (that’s what I do when I’m focusing).  I went town.  I think I got my creativeness back with every pumpkin I made.  A snowman even joined the crew.

Steve did an impressive job too.  He busted out skill that I never knew he had and made the cutest pumpkin and funkiest gourd.  Plus he was really great at getting the clay workable.  I was thankful for his warm hands.


And all the work I should have done will still be there tomorrow…

What were your favorite crafts as a kid?
