Mother Goose Night

 First, I want to highlight my 1st grader, Logan.  He is such a great artist, as are my other boys.  His picture was selected to be in an Art Show (the teddy bear).  Several pieces of art were chosen from each school to be in it and his picture was chosen.  Great job Logan!!!

Second, I was able to do a little art work myself.  Our church put on a night for the women, with dinner and a Mother Goose inspired skit.  (If you are LDS and are interested in the skit email me, I can get you a copy, it's so cute, about visiting teaching).  We had four houses set up for the skit and I did the backgrounds.  I had so much fun drawing and painting.  It's hard to see details from the photos, but it turned out pretty good (click on photo for close-up).  Everyone did such a wonderful job participating in the skit, decorating, and the food, it was a great night!

 The Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe, had so many children she didn't know what to do.

The Three Little Pigs, mom's house.  She was a riot!

Peter, Peter Pumpkin Eater had a wife and couldn't keep her, so he put her in a pumpkin shell and there he kept her very well.

Old Mother hubbard went to the cupboard...

The rest of the area was decorated so cute with Mother Goose posters, and each table had a Mother Goose themed centerpiece.

  1. Logan's bear is awesome!
    Your backdrops are amazing! You have some great talent! I hope you saved them- that sounds like a great program!

  2. What a wonderful idea for an activity. You did a fabulous job on the house backdrops. We sure miss you in our ward, you took the cuteness factor with you when you hoo!

  3. I came across this post while searching for this particular Mother Goose skit. We have this same skit but are missing the part with The Old Woman in the Shoe. I don't know if you'll ever see this comment, but if you do, is there any way you could email me this skit? My email is Thank you!
