Quiet Book

Last year I decided I wanted to make a Quiet Book. I had seen a few in the stores, and thought that I could make a book that was much cuter and much cheaper. Kimberly, Shanna, and my mother-in-law decided they wanted to make one as well. We made a list of our different ideas (which is over 30!!!), and got to work. There are 7 kids in the Foust family, and for Christmas I wanted to make a book for the Trent and Tiona family (since that is who we had for Christmas). We figured we were already making 4 books, so we might as well make 3 more! 7 books, what were we thinking?!?! We spent many hours working on this project. We got together almost every Tuesday from August to December. We haven't even made half of the pages that are on our list, but we got a pretty good start! We all worked together and I think the books turned out FANTASTIC! The true test is if the kids like it, and they LOVE it!!!
