So I guess I'll just jump on in....
Friday was homecoming in our little town. My 4 year old, who just started preschool this fall, got to ride on one of the floats (and by "float," I mean a pickup truck pulling a trailer w/ 30 preschoolers on it! This is midwest living at it's finest!)
He was soo excited to be apart of it though!!! They even made shirts w/ blue and gold handprints on them just for the occasion.
Ashlee also had a good time--Daddy came home early to watch the parade w/ us, and Grandma L. even came down! Ashlee got TONS of candy, and w/ Grandma around, got to eat far more more than she needed! She even shared w/ big brother when he was done w/ the parade. All in all, it was a great afternoon. It was such a beautiful day--high 60's, and sunny--perfect parade weather!! It sure beat sitting out in the 90 degree sun watching the Fourth of July parade!!!
So far this weekend, I've gotten nothing accomplished. What a waste! We did manage to watch a few movies: "We Are Marshall," w/ hunky Matthew McConahey, "I am Reed Fish," (a not-so memorable movie...) , and a low budge horror flick, "Abandoned." The only one I'd reccomend is "We are Marshall." Earlier in the week we rented "Knocked Up," which was hilarious!! One of the funniest movies I've seen in a long time!
and so far all I've managed to do is get the pieces cut out. Hopefully tomorrow the kids will give me some time and I can get it started. I also found a cute little tutorial at Making It Fun for making cloth shoes that I'd like to try this week. I also have plans for a fleece jacket and pants set for McKenna (McCalls M5220), some p.j. pants for Ashlee, and I need to get started on some Christmas presents. Oh, and McKenna seems to be rapidly growing out of her size M diapers, which means I need to get started on her Large stash. If only I had as much time and ambition as I had ideas!
Hopefully tomorrow I'll have some progress to show off!!!
