Happy Barack Obama Day

The Jones family did some celebrating today!

It was the perfect occasion to make felt crowns.
I've been wanting to do these for awhile now and just kept putting it off.
Avery and I stopped off at the craft store between our trip to the gym and picking up NeeNee from preschool this morning.

She helped me pick out the felt colors and we scrounged up the embellishments from around the house.

Our new celebration crowns will be donned for many a happy occasion...
(Yes, my children are usually naked when they are at home... Impossible to keep clothing on them.)

We even made homemade crowns for Daddy and Grandma Lulu!
We sang made-up songs about Obama, danced around the kitchen, and enjoyed the front page of the newspaper hung prominently in the center of the action.

We rounded out the evening with a delicious dinner of chicken cacciatore (thank you Lulu!), a lovely bottle of red wine, and pumpkin chocolate chip muffins. Geneva decided to top hers with chocolate frosting and a candle because she was feeling quite festive!
