diy: we made a ticket chain

Our version of a paper chain. True and I did this together one afternoon while her little sisters were napping.
All you need is: a roll of tickets, happy tape (glue would work too), and happy workers. If have tickets in other colors, add those in as well!

Hmm… maybe we should have a carnival-esque themed Christmas?! Just a thought. Well, we still have no tree, but hey, we got a ticket chain up (and our stockings)! Hopefully, this weekend everyone will be well enough and we can work on our Christmas tree!
Thank you for all the get well wishes. They all have been resting all day long for days now. I also have introduced them to She-ra and Jem. Ha! Those bring back good memories of when I was younger, so I thought they might like to watch it. They have taken to She-ra, but they don’t really like Jem, so I only put Jem on when they finally fall asleep and I am folding laundry. I loved Jem so much! So with all the resting (and She-ra watching), Brave is very slowly recovering, and thankfully the two other girls don’t seem to be as bad as Brave was. Hopefully, it is a milder form of Brave’s and maybe, just maybe, the sickies will skip over Ben and me!
Can you believe Christmas will be here in about a week?!! Do you still have lots to do before next Saturday? My main project right now (when the girls nap) is getting all the messes in my house put away!

    I made an enormous paper chain this year from paper scraps from my office: unmitigated joy.

    What do you mean they don't like Jem?!! Jem's awesome! It must be because they're ill. Once they are back to their proper selves I'm sure they will be suitably entranced with the idea of earrings that turn you into a rock star :)

    I had a Jem doll with a light up necklace and earrings. Thank you for making the season a little brighter with that memory. Love your ticket chain!

  7. There a few weeks my husband and my two kids were very sick. But me not, so I could juste take care of them. Maybe it will be your case.

  8. I love the ticket stub garland! I saw some little lonely Christmas trees for sale yesterday… I wish I lived near so I could bring one over! I wanted to tell you that Caroline is “oohing and aahing” over the book… she absolutely loves it and has announced that we should move to California!!! Fine by me!
