Read me a story that you tell…

Connor has an affinity for bedtime stories.  Unfortunately, they are the same three:

Three Little Pigs

Goldilocks and the Three Bears

Jack and the Beanstalk

I have managed to introduce “The Gingerbread Man” recently only to switch him periodically with “The Stinky Cheese Man” (a must read, I promise – especially if you have a warped sense of humor like our family does.)

Enter – finger puppets.

You see, we don’t actually read the stories to him.  We tell them.  Sometimes we act them out.  (Connor does a great “Jack” and “Baby Bear”) and sometimes we “walk them out” on his back while he sleeps.  That one is a little more difficult to explain.  We use our fingers as the characters and walk on his back to massage it.

At any rate, I was having a hard time coming up with patterns that I liked for finger puppets and came across this book.

Adorable, huh?

We spend the rest of the weekend in the snow…  something we hardly EVER get here:
