Getting Handmade!

When Grandma Lorraine came she brought her handmade gift for Christmas. Last year we thought she had topped all when she made all of us kids game quilts, something like 15 game quilts I think. This year she out shone herself and made 13 of these super fantabulous Puppet Theaters!! I was speechless (but couldn't post about it until all family received theirs!) and in complete awe of her talent when we opened it up. The kids love it, and so do Keith and I!

It has a curtain rod so you can put it up in a doorway. The little blue curtains slide back so you can't see the puppeteer (Nat hasn't mastered that yet) and put on a show!

The Princess puppet.
Handmade just for us with love!
The monkey and the princess...playing with the monkey and the princess!
All the puppets, minus the monkey and the princess. Lorraine made 13 SETS people. That is a whole lot of crazy sewing! And she even included a bunch of plays and jokes to go with.
Thanks again Grandma Lorraine for such a wonderful special gift! It is something our family will cherish forever!

Aren't we so lucky to have a mother-in-law that has the time and energy to do this. I truly think our kids are so lucky.
