Pine Cone Candy Corn
Sadly, our goldfish died over the weekend.
Don't worry, that's not a picture of him "floating", just one of the few shots I could find of him in the background of another picture. We didn't take a lot of photos of him, because...well...he was a goldfish. Other than for a few incidences of leaping suicidally from his bowl, he wasn't very exciting.
Still after five and half years on our mantel, his absence has left an empty spot.
We discussed buying another fish, but the children felt it would be disrespectful to the memory of their pet to replace him so quickly. It will be the Christmas season soon, and we'll inevitably have some decoration to stick up there anyway.
In the meantime, I thought maybe a few of the pine cones we had left over from the bats might do the trick.
They were alright in a woodsy, Montana kind of way, just lacking a little paint...
...to give them that festive touch.
I have mentioned that National Candy Corn Day is just around the corner, right?
It's great to be a homeschooler.
