Cletus flies home tomorrow. We watched football today up at Jakes. Then we went to Jane & Marion’s for a cooler and had a nice visit. Now we’re home watching funny pet videos and laughing so much. We’ve had a good time.

Moon rise over the Kenai Mountains.

I’m thankful to have had this visit. But dang I’m tired. Gonna have to go back to work to rest up. Lol

Cletus gave me a new craft idea.

Cletus decided we needed to make these adorable little gnome garland strands. We ended up with 10 of the turquoise and 11 of the pink/black ones. Two kids made themselves a gnome. And we made three oddball gnomes for variety.

Getting started.
Making my first little gnome hat.

The hats are made by looping yarn around a paper towel tube that’s been cut down into 3/4″ rings, give or take.

The first finished gnome.

The beards are pom-poms glued into the hats. And a wooden bead for a nose.

I’ve never seen so many gnomes.

They were a fun craft, lots of yarn cutting and pom-pom making silliness.
