Cool Stuff I Like
November 15, 2013
Happy Friday! Julia and I watched our first Christmas video! And have been singing Christmas songs in the car! Every year it's the same thing. Mid-November and we just can't help ourselves. A grocery store I went into the other day had a fabulous deal: cute rolls of wrapping paper for $1! What?? So awesome! Did you see my holiday gift list from the other day? Here's a question, all you folks with 6, 7, or 8 year olds....what are you thinking of getting your kids this year?
COOL STUFF this week:
Kid friendly chili.
A giant Princess Yeti??? I totally entered this contest.
This is how I like my Thanksgiving stuffing. No mushrooms, sausage or cornbread.
Look at this darling Advent calendar!!!!
I made these crispy fish sticks and they were awesome.
Autumnal reading list from Rhythm of the Home.
Have you seen Sweet Potato Chronicles? A site devoted to family friendly meals.
This photo. Oh yes.
SO excited for this movie!!!!!! My beloved Emma!
A Thanksgiving garland made from kiddo art. LOVE LOVE.
Dried orange peel decor.
Cool Book of the Week: 'The Sandman and the War of Dreams' by William Joyce. Over the past 6 months or so, we've been reading 'The Guardians of Childhood' series with Julia, and we were hopping about like mad bunnies when she and I discovered that there was a 4th book just newly released. This one is about Sanderson Mansnoozy, aka The Sandman. Our mad bunny hopping came to an abrupt end however, when we snatched up the book and brought it home and got all excited to read it and then....realized we haven't read the book yet about the Easter Bunny! Doh.
Have a lovely weekend! It supposed to get colder here in the next few days. Someone told me that there are only 6 weeks until Christmas and I officially began to PANIC. Why will I never ever learn to start my Christmas prep in July.....
