Way Back When-esday

So, this isn’t a way-back photo (it’s from November), but it’s a way-back technique…so that counts, right?

We got silhouettes done of the kids as gifts to the grandparents this year. (This is actually a scan of the finished, framed project … I didn’t want to take it out of the frame!)

We went to our local library and each kid sat for about 5 – 10 minutes while Jean snip-snipped away at the paper. She was amazing to watch! She had an adjustable chair set up so she could position the kid to the height she needed and then a portable DVD player (with a fish DVD playing – lots of action) set up so that your child would look in the right direction. And then her hands just flew across the paper. I was quite impressed.

Cheryl over at Twinfatuation hosts this one. Go on over to see who else is playing – and join in too!
