08:16 am - Look What I Found!
I was cleaning out a closet yesterday, and I found this:
This is a blast from the past. When Ben was about 9 or 10 years old, he went through a "Muppets Craze". He loved the Muppets so much! He watched the movie over and over. He adored the Muppets on Seseme Street. At one point, he decided to make his own Muppets. (He thought maybe he'd be a puppeteer when he grew up, so he'd better learn all aspects of the business and start by making his own puppets.) I loaned him my sewing machine, and he learned how to operate it. He very determinedly went to work on learning this new skill. This "Kermit" muppet was one of his first attempts. Then he made one for Ely and gave it to him on his birthday. ("What a sweetie!") Most of the sewing on this particular muppet was done by hand.
