|Acorns were everywhere from the storm.|
We're done cleaning up the yard now, from the storms that happened through a few days ago. We were lucky and didn't get much in the way of harm. We did have acorns from one of our trees thrown down, and they were all over the place!
I took little man to the library after school yesterday and the librarian said her power was still out at her house. The news was predicting Sunday for a lot of people in the state (that's almost a whole week without power). The next street over from us had no electric up until yesterday. We had a couple of power surges during the storm, but that was it. We got so lucky!!
Awhile back I posted about my husband shaking his head over my taking pictures of the empty toilet paper rolls. Well we put those to good use this week too. Meet 'Maltie.' My youngest always names his creations, and they're never names I've heard before (though suddenly I am craving a delicious chocolate malt...). Maltie is one of the new turkeys in our house, courtesy of the empty TP rolls. ;) These were fun to make, and my son liked doing it. Truth be told, I did too, hahaha. These kinds of crafts are right up my alley. They're easy and don't require a lot of crafting prowess. ;)
|Pizza Hut's Reading Program|
They're still doing that, and my son recently was given his first certificate for a free pizza. He thought that was the cat's meow!! Never mind that he takes off his cheese and his crust and refuses to eat them (always, for any pizza), it was still something he was super proud to get. We always read, every single day, but he's amped up and on a roll right now, trying to earn that next certificate.
A Nut in a Nutshell was talking about Mexican restaurants awhile back, and it got me to hankerin' for some Mexican food.
Aren't Mexican restaurants the best for decorating?
In any case, Happy Thursday to you!
