Spinning up Wordless/Wordful Wednesday – Thanksgiving Teepee and Hieroglyphics

I was hoping Princess Nagger would be bringing home some cool art she did in school to assist me in the Wordful/Wordless Wednesday post for today.  She didn’t disappoint!  The two days she had school this week, she brought two different art projects home.  On Monday, she brought home this cool Native American Hieroglyphic she did on brown paper (wrinkled to look like an animal skin):

The translation is:

“10 days climbing up mountains hunting deer and fish for my friends at the lake.”

I think she did an outstanding job! 

On Tuesday she brought home this really cool Teepee:

It’s made out of half a soft tortilla fastened with a toothpick, the wood poles are pretzel sticks stuck together with frosting, and the hieroglyphics drawn on with food coloring.  The translation for this is:

“10 days climbing up the mountains with my friends for the feast at the lake.”

What cool Thanksgiving decorations we have for this year thanks to Princess Nagger!  She’s supervising this post over my shoulder and wanted me to pass on this message to you:

“Try making this cool Teepee!”

I sure love that kid!

About Stacy (the Random Cool Chick)

After 20+ years in the Corporate World and years of infertility, Princess Nagger made her miraculous appearance and I chose to become a SAHM and WAHM - I love every minute of it. We added Little Dude through adoption, adding a whole new dimension to our family. We have an eclectic mix of pets: dogs, cats, birds and fish. I love to cook and try new techniques to turn ordinary into extraordinary. Crafty by nature, I take on a lot of unique projects and enjoy seeing the end result. My favorite, of course, is making my own wine out of fruits and grapes. Experiments with water currently underway. I blog about the joys of parenting, family, friends, life, love and anything else that strikes my fancy. I do enjoy doing reviews and giveaways for products I use, believe in and can stand behind.
