And now you can see why I have to curl my stubby little lashes. If I don’t, it looks like I don’t have any! Oh… yeah, back to the box. It was chocked full…
of really fun stuff! They even went so far as to think about things they had seen on the blog as inspiration for the package!!
When the girls got home we let them have a turn opening it… they loved it all as much as we did. I walked in the playroom the next day and caught Raiger resting while holding her Watercolor Wands. She seriously carried them around until Monday morning when I finally rolled out the paper and let her go to town with them.
Thank you, Jason & Ashley! Y’all go check out http://www.schoolhouseAL.com/ or check them out in person! I hope to make my way there one day soon! I’m afraid I’d have to have another garage sale before I went though, I’m sure I’d like one of everything they have.
Next up, the BABY SHOWER!
It was a huge success and a lot of fun! I took more pictures but most included people who were eating and I know they don’t want their pictures on the internet with food in their mouths!
Following the shower we made our way to the pool. The weather was perfect, the water a little chilly, but children never seem to mind!
We even had a chance to watch 2 male anoles have a territorial “exchange”, I honestly thought they were going to eat each other. Thankfully, they didn’t.
If you live in the deep south these guys are quite common. In fact, more often than I like, I find them running around my house. Usually, it’s the females that are out running around. These are the males and they’re twice as big. At first, I thought they were baby iguanas. 🙂
Last but not least, I leave you with another snack idea. My husband has deemed it blog-worthy. If you happen to be on a diet, have given up carbs or chocolate, you may want to stop reading NOW. Or if you have no self-control, keep reading, try it, and then go back on your diet.
News flash:: the ham bullion people make cookies too! And they can be found near the ham bullion in the ethnic food aisle. Or you could make your way to your local Tienda de Latina. They are unbelievable! Light, crunchy, not too sweet and really good smothered in… Sunbutter and Nutella. My friend, Marie, enlightened me to the Sunbutter and let me tell you folks… do I dare say it’s better than peanut butter!? We fortunately don’t have peanut allergies but I’m seriously considering never buying peanut butter again!! It’s “natural” so you have to stir and if you don’t want it to re-seperate you should keep it in the frige. But, unlike natural peanut butter, when you pull it out of the frige it’s still spreadable. As for the Nutella… I can’t really think of words to describe it, if you haven’t tried… just trust me, it makes any canned frosting taste like a can of shortening.
If you have a
puppy baby, let them try the cookies too! John Martin LOVES them and they’re not anywhere near as messy as those biter biscuits!
