Ed Emberley is a genius

This is how we spent a good hour today. It was really fun and perfect for a 4 year old. My sister and I used to draw things out of the Ed Emberley books that we got from the library.

Next we will try the Ed Emberly Halloween Drawing Book!

(Can be found on amazon.)

Half Term School Break Part 1

In Bath, there is the craziest thrift/vintage/everything store... It is like a crazy version of boot sale/yard sale . They opened it in the 1960s and it is a pretty cool sight. (I found the last piece of my Halloween costume there.)

Crafting with Stinky...

Started planning out meals...It actually made things easier, but we did deviate last night when I really, really had to have Thai foodStarted planning out meals...It actually made things easier, but we did deviate last night when I really, really had to have Thai food

Storytime at the Ely Apple Festival.

Anyone have any good ideas for kids' Christmas presents?? (All ages...)

Football Sunday?

The Uof M vs. Iowa game started at 11:30pm local time. For this reason, AFN (Armed Forces Network) aired the game today, starting at 11:30a.
Paul is from Iowa.

My dad is a die hard U of M fan.

They have a bet...

I have been programmed to make food on any day that you watch football, so I share with you my easiest football food recipe.
(There was only one left by the time I got to the plate to take a photo.)

*warning: this is one of those annoying recipes without exact amounts.

1 package Crescent Rolls

2-3 slices of Ham

Big Scoop of Cream Cheese

TBS of Mayo

tsp of dijon mustard

Equal amount of cheese as ham (any kind will do, I used shredded mexican)

Chop ham and cheese up very small. Mix with cream cheese, mayo and mustard. Spread on inside of unbaked crescent rolls and roll up. Bake until done.

I also use this recipe as a last minute snack for playdates.

I really love AUTUMN.

There is nothing better than the October issue of Martha Stewart. I hope to get these out on time!

What I have been up to...

Tate started school. He loves it! I've been reading this to him:We have been enjoying the canal near our house.
And a few of my favorite things...
And liking this cheap, but mineral eyeshadow.
