What A Crazy Week...

I hope everyone had a great halloween and even a better start of the new month.. Can you believe this is November? I know I cant. However am glad it is.. Fall is my favorite time of year and I love Thanksgiving.. 

This past week has been crazy for me.. Let me start by saying this I was ready for the weekend by Monday. LOL.. I spent over 14 hours on one thing and I dont even get paid to do so. But with as much stress as it caused me I was happy to do it since it was for Girl Scouts and everything got sorted out.. :) So that was my monday night and all day tuesday.. Then both of my girls had dance on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Well only one had dance on Thursday because that day was also trick or treat for us here.. Thursday while the girls were at school I made 45 treat bags. But wait Friday was also the class parties.. 

I felt like I was going crazy.. I could even imagine to craft.. But I wanted to let everyone know that Funday Friday Challenge is going on for this week over at Jo's Scrap Shack

Its Summer Time

Its Summer Time...
My girls are out for summer and are already driving me crazy. Its only been a week and a half. So I am trying to plan some things we could do at home.With gas being around four dollars a gallon the more we do at home or at least walking distance the better. 

I have already figured that tuesday will be our day that we do most of our running around since both the girls have dance on this day, but I know we will be out at least one more day. I did spend a chunk of money to get a pool this year. Normally we would just got over to my moms and swim in her pool. However gas be so high it was time.So I want to know what are some of the things you want to do this summer?  Here are a few that I would like to do. 
1. My girls  and I are wanting to learn to make homemade pizza dough and pizza sauce. (I buy frozen or order pizza all the time. I know its bad)
2. Homemade ice cream in a bag. I think my girls will love this. 
3. Watercolor bubble painting. Both girls love to do stuff with art. Draw, color, paint, you name it they like to do it. My 9 year old will draw while her sister who is 8 writes the story. :) 
4. Late night (9pm-ish) swim. I want to get glow sticks or the lights for a pool and have a rainbow swim. (If that makes sense.)

I dont have a lot planned yet but that will change.

I hope everyone has a wonderful summer. Stay safe and just enjoy the season. 

Until Next Time
